    This looks very interesting. Man in the High Castle vibe off it. Out next month.

    Here’s the official synopsis:

    In 1941, music-loving sisters Thomasina (Emma Appleton, Everything I Know About Love) and Martha (Stefanie Martini, Prime Suspect 1973) build a machine called LOLA, which can intercept broadcasts from the future. While the sisters initially use the machine for small ventures like becoming the first fans of 1970s music, they soon realise that it may hold the key to defeating the Nazis. LOLA proves to be massively effective in shifting the tide of the war, but as Thomasina begins to become carried away with the level of power the machine holds over the future, the sisters soon discover the world-altering consequences of their actions.

    A 'feature directorial debut' and Made in Ireland too it seems: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LOLA_(film)

    Lola was shot in Ireland during lockdown. The scenes between the sisters in their house were shot on 16mm Bolex and Arriflex cameras with period lenses while the newsreel scenes were shot on a 1930s Newman Sinclair 35mm wind up camera on Kodak Double X film. The actresses were trained in how to use the cameras with Stefanie Martini operating the shots which her character is shooting. Much of the film was home processed using a Soviet era 16mm developing tank. Neil Hannon of the Divine Comedy wrote the soundtrack which also features Space Oddity by David Bowie, a rearranged version of You Really Got Me by the Kinks and music by Elgar.
