Fire in the Sky (Revontulien armoilla) (Finland)

This documentary on the most Nordic of natural phenomena — the Northern Lights (aka the Aurora Borealis) — reveals how researchers have gained new insight into the impact of the Northern Lights on infrastructure and animal behavior, and explains why solar storms can be a danger to humanity.

Movie of the Week: Young Mothers in the ’70s (Elles… Les filles du Plessis) (France)

Set during the “Me Decade,” this historical drama sees a notorious home for teenage mothers on the outskirts of Paris rocked from the inside by a social revolution. The lead cast includes Sandrine Bonnaire (Monsieur Hire) and Blandine Bellavoir (Agatha Christie’s Criminal Games).

Wara (France-Senegal)

Hailed as “the African Borgen” and nominated for Best International Panorama Series at Series Mania 2020, this eight-part miniseries centers on Moutari Wara (Issaka Sawodogo, The Missing), a law professor who, after years in exile, is allowed to return to his home country, but on one condition: that he doesn’t get involved in politics. But when local elections are organized early, Aïcha (France Nancy Goulian, Shuga), one of his law students, pushes him to get involved against corruption and cronyism. Together they want to change the world, but their relationship is beset by generational conflict.

Movie of the Week: Doctor Blanche’s Clinic (La clinique du docteur Blanche) (France)

Set in mid-19th century France, this historical drama centers on two doctors with very different methods, as they compete in the brand-new field of psychiatry. The main cast includes Stanley Weber (Borgia), Lionnel Astier (No Second Chance), and Philippe Laudenbach (Chefs),

Gigantes: Season 2 (Spain)

In the second and final season of this gripping Godfather-esque crime drama, the women take the lead as the Guerrero men are on the run — battling rivals, the police, and each other as they try to stay on top of Madrid’s criminal underworld. The cast includes Daniel Grao (Cathedral of the Sea), Isak Férriz (Below Zero), Nene (The Legacy of the Bones), Yolanda Torosio (Dreamland), Sofía Oria (Caronte), Elisabet Gelabert (Elite), and Xenia Tostado (The Cook of Castamar).
