USA 2016. Dir Alex Gibney. 116min. Digital. Advised Cert 12A
Academy Award®winning filmmaker Alex Gibney's latest is a timely exploration of Cyber warfare. Focusing on the computer worm known as 'Stuxnet', Gibney charts both its intended impact on the Iranian nuclear facilities at Natanz as well as its unintended, and perhaps even more alarming, consequences on computer systems across the globe. It's a chilling story, thrillingly told. Simon Duffy, Programme and Research Coordinator.

Preview: Fences + Q&A with Viola Davis
Sat 14 Jan 17:40 NFT1
USA 2016. Dir Denzel Washington. With Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Stephen Henderson, Mykelti Williamson, Jovan Adepo. 139min. Digital. 12A. Courtesy of Paramount Pictures.
Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by August Wilson, Fences centres on Troy Maxson (Washington), a garbage collector in 1950s Pittsburgh. Once a promising baseball player but now embittered by his lack of success and resentful of his son Cory's opportunity to make it as a professional player, Maxson takes out his frustrations on his loved ones. Washington, who is both director and actor here, has transformed this Tony Award-winning play into a gut-wrenching film, anchored by the superb performances from the whole cast. We're delighted to welcome actor Viola Davis for a post-screening Q&A, fresh from picking up her Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress for this film.
Tickets £16, concs £12. On sale to BFI Champions Tue 10 Jan 11:30, BFI Members Tue 10 Jan 12:30 and to the public from Wed 11 Jan 11:30.

My Voyage to Italy
Sun 15 Jan 18:00 NFT2; Mon 16 Jan 18:15 NFT2 p22
This programme will be screened on video.

As a tribute to the late, great Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, we’re delighted to present this double-bill of their work:
Singin’ in the Rain
Tue 17 Jan 18:10 NFT3
USA 1952. Dirs Stanley Donen, Gene Kelly. With Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds, Donald O’Connor, Cyd Charisse, Jean Hagen. 103min. Digital. U
Having little dance experience didn’t deter Debbie Reynolds from taking on a role in what turned out to be, arguably, the finest movie musical ever made. She trained for three months with co-stars Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor, and the results are stunning, especially in the exuberant, unforgettable number ‘Good Morning’. Set in Hollywood during the challenging transition from silent to sound movies, the film shot Reynolds to instant stardom and her on-screen charisma still shines like a diamond.
Postcards from the Edge
Tue 17 Jan 20:45 NFT3
USA 1990. Dir Mike Nichols. With Meryl Streep, Shirley MacLaine, Dennis Quaid, Gene Hackman, Mary Wickes. 101min. 35mm. 15
Carrie Fisher’s semi-autobiographical story stars Meryl Streep as a recovering drug addict trying to resume her acting career. Her studio’s insurance policy, however, requires her to live with a responsible adult. That person is her mother – an imposing, manipulative, former Hollywood star who has always overshadowed her daughter’s success. As expected from Fisher, the script is top-notch – often hilarious, often poignant but always sharp as a razor, and, of course, Streep and MacLaine are outstanding.
Tickets £11.75, concs £9.20 per film (BFI Members pay £1.65 less). On sale to BFI Champions Wed 11 Jan 11:30, BFI Members Wed 11 Jan 12:30 and to the public from Thu 12 Jan 11:30.
A joint ticket (£16.00, concs £12.00, members pay £1.70 less) can be purchased via the box office; please call 020 7928 3232.

Audience Choice: When Harry Met Sally
Sat 21 Jan 20:30 NFT2
USA 1989. Dir Rob Reiner. With Meg Ryan, Billy Crystal, Carrie Fisher, Bruno Kirby. 95min. Digital. 15.
We are pleased to announce the winner of this month’s audience choice:
The eternally charming When Harry Met Sally... would prove the wellspring for everything from Friends and Sex and the City to the romcom queens of the 1990s. Rob Reiner’s deft direction combined alchemically with writer Nora Ephron’s sharp wit to create an even-handed and believable battle of the sexes. The film follows would-be lovers Harry (Crystal) and Sally (Ryan) over a decade, but the path to true love never did run smoothly, and they move from suspicion to friendship – and that diner scene – until, inevitably, the ‘sex part’ gets in the way. But will romance win out in the end? – James Bell, ‘Sight & Sound’
