Locarno Festival in Los
Angeles

We’re excited to partner with the newly launched Locarno in L.A. to bring films from the Locarno Film Festival to new audiences. Dane Komljen’s moody festival darling audaciously envisions the success (and failure) of utopian community as a place where relationships and architecture meet.

Rouge

Antoine Barraud Francia, 2015

Exclusiva
28 días para ver

Our second Special Discovery is a never-before-seen version of Antoine Barraud’s Berlinale-fêted Le dos rouge. Wander in Paris’ mesmerizing museums in Bertrand Bonello’s company, which Sarah Winchester’s director roams in search of monstrosity, sharing the screen with some of France’s finest actors.

Contact High

Michael Glawogger Austria, 2009

27 días para ver

This 4/20, join uncategorizable Austrian maverick Michael Glawogger, who swerves from extreme documentaries (Workingman’s Death, Whores’ Glory) to extreme fictions (Kill Daddy Good Night), for a madcap drug comedy that remains tragically under-known Stateside.

The Valley Below

Kyle Thomas Canadá, 2014

26 días para ver

We’re celebrating National Canadian Film Day with REEL CANADA by exclusively showing director Kyle Thomas’s impressive debut. Small scale but emotionally ambitious, it adeptly weaves four stories of lives coming to their breaking points with touching sensitivity.

Love Rites

Walerian Borowczyk Francia, 1987

Our Walerian Borowczyk retrospective climaxes (apologies) with his final film, alas. More sexually restrained—relatively—than the dizzyingly pink heights of Boro’s late 60s and 70s cinema, this adaptation of André Pieyre de Mandiargues’s novel still plunges into contemporary sexual mores with glee.

Araya

Margot Benacerraf Francia, 1959

24 días para ver

In 1959 Hiroshima, mon amour shared a top award from Cannes with a Venezuelan film of matched accomplishment in pure cinema–and that film is Araya. A document of remnants of the pre-industrialized world, Araya is a breathtaking reinvention of documentary as something both political and mystical.

Out in the Dark

Michael Mayer Israel, 2012

23 días para ver

This feature debut vividly uses the anxiety, precariousness and paranoia of Israeli-Palestinian relations to infuse the clandestine atmosphere of a love story where cross-cultural, cross-political conflict is only part of its couple’s troubles. A director to watch!

Archipelago

Joanna Hogg Reino Unido, 2010

22 días para ver

If you enjoyed our double feature of films by British director Joanna Hogg in January (or even if you missed them) we have a treat: Her second film, co-starring Tom Hiddleston, wherein a family vacation pushes and prods the limits of relationships and the spaces that define and confine them.

Maestà, la Passion du Christ

Andy Guérif Francia, 2015

21 días para ver

Mel Gibson and DeMille adapted the Bible into drama, but nothing like this. For Good Friday, marvel at the French artist and director’s stunning transformation of the screen into a multi-panel moving image version of the Passion. A moving painting? Video art? Regardless, meant to be watched big!

Traitors

Sean Gullette Marruecos, 2013

20 días para ver

Spirited, youthful, angry: cinema turns punk rock in this debut feature. Set in contemporary Morocco, Traitors follows a maligned young woman and her battle against adversity in various forms. Told with a unique and rebellious sense of grace, this film is a rich spectacle of youth and individualism.

Storm Children, Book One

Lav Diaz Filipinas, 2014

It's About Time: The
Cinema of Lav Diaz

Lav Diaz’s majestically patient storytelling invests his infrequent documentaries with unusual concentration and power. The historical and psychic devastation of his epic dramas here becomes bracingly physical when focused on the detritus and poignant survival of children after Typhoon Yolanda.

Viva Laldjérie

Nadir Moknèche Francia, 2004

18 días para ver

Viva Laldjéri ardently follows three women in contemporary Algeria and their shared struggle against the oppression of religious fundamentalism expanding within their city. A bracing political film suffused with tender emotion, Nadir Moknèche’s film is a key feminist work of Algerian cinema.

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne

Walerian Borowczyk Alemania Occidental, 1981

Robert Louis Stevenson’s sinister modern fairy tale of respectable surfaces and beastly underbellies is the perfect playground for the moral inquiry and surreal excess Walerian Borowczyk seeks. Riffing on the source with frenzied abandon, it also stars the great Udo Kier as the two-faced Doctor!

For My Father

Dror Zahavi Israel, 2008

16 días para ver

A suicide bombers mission is unsuspectingly upended in this incisive political drama of religious, racial, and generational prejudice. With a complexly staged love story of great depth matched by an inspired cinematographic sense, For My Father is a powerful portrait of political struggle.

Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present

Exclusiva
15 días para ver

We’re joining with events across the country to honor the multi-disciplinarian genius of Tony Conrad, who died last year. Ridiculously charismatic and talented, Conrad takes center stage in this new documentary, where the scope of his influence and power of his personality is a delight to behold.

Sarah Winchester

Bertrand Bonello Francia, 2016

Exclusiva
14 días para ver

This month’s Special Discovery duo is a pairing with French auteur Bertrand Bonello (Saint Laurent, Nocturama), first behind the camera and then in front. They are also films that approach and integrate other arts: here, a gorgeous, mysterious sketch towards a dark opera rich in dance and music.

Xingu

Cao Hamburger Brasil, 2012

13 días para ver

In this portrait of a near 30-year expedition to establish a reservation for the Amazon’s Kaiabi Indians, Brazilian director Cao Hamburger works in broad strokes on a vast canvas to craft a film of epic scope, potent simplicity, and of great historical and political relevance. An underrated gem.

Interior de un convento

Walerian Borowczyk Italia, 1978

Off to Italy for Walerian Borowczyk, who takes inspiration from Stendhal for a classic setting of sexual repression, oppression, and uninhibited release: a nunnery! Co-starring Borowczyk’s wife Ligia Branice (La Jetée) and shot in glorious soft-focus glowing light by Dario Argento’s cinematographer.

Beautiful Darling: The Life and Times of Candy Darling

James Rasin Estados Unidos, 2010

11 días para ver

In this comprehensive film honoring actor and luminary trans icon Candy Darling, director James Rasin gives precedence to compelling interviews with an expansive number of Darling’s contemporaries and greatest admirers. To top it off, the film is lovingly narrated by Chloë Sevigny and Patton Oswalt.

Un verano en la provenza

Éric Guirado Francia, 2007

10 días para ver

Director Éric Guirado closely studied the lives of traveling grocers to lend this drama an intimate feeling of lived experience. The result is exactly that: small in scale and expression yet boundlessly warm, compelling, and a sincere portrait of working life in France’s countryside.

Ulzhan

Volker Schlöndorff Francia, 2007

With a roving desire to find stories to tell around the world, Volker Schlöndorff has traveled in our triple feature from New York to the coast of France—and now to the steppes of Kazakhstan for a gorgeously sweeping tale written by Jean-Claude Carrière, the great collaborator of Buñuel and Godard.

Calm at Sea

Volker Schlöndorff Francia, 2012

We travel to occupied France of the Second World War with New German Cinema maverick and Palme d’Or-winning director Volker Schlöndorff. No stranger to the urgency of historical drama, Schlöndorff sheds light on a wrenching wartime tragedy infamous in France but relatively unknown here—until now.

Muerte de un viajante

Volker Schlöndorff Estados Unidos, 1985

Volker Schlöndorff, a major participant along with Herzog and Fassbinder in the New German Cinema with such films as The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum and The Tin Drum, is the subject of this week’s triple feature. He brings his own unique approach to Arthur Miller’s classic—as does Dustin Hoffman.

Jane B. par Agnès V.

Agnès Varda Francia, 1987

6 días para ver
Agnès Varda's Couplets

Our final couplet by Agnès Varda is particularly special: a direct collaboration between the director and actress Jane Birkin, having just recently made the more story-driven 1987’s Le petit amour. This fruitful partnership freely darts and delves into acting, femininity and artistic creation.

Venus on the Half-Shell

Walerian Borowczyk Francia, 1975

A nice break—short and illustrated—in our Walerian Borowczyk retrospective. An affectionate sketch of the voluptuous erotic (of course!), animist pastels by Bona de Mandiargues, wife of the surrealist writer who narrates the erotica collage A Private Collection. Bona meets Boro!

Lightning Over Braddock: A Rustbowl Fantasy

Tony Buba Estados Unidos, 1988

4 días para ver

You may know many American independents from the 80s—Jarmusch, Spike Lee—but chances are don’t know Tony Buba. A regional director par excellence, Buba’s resolutely working class, Pittsburgh-based filmmaking feels like an alternate direction “indie” cinema could have (and perhaps should have) gone.

Lola

Brillante Mendoza Filipinas, 2009

3 días para ver

The Filipino new wave is responsible for some of the peaks of contemporary cinema and Brillante Mendoza remains one of its foremost talents. Mendoza is the movement’s classically minded social realist, and with Grandmother he creates a powerful portrait of the struggle of women in modern Manila.

Paraíso: Esperanza

Ulrich Seidl Austria, 2013

2 días para ver
The Paradise Trilogy

After the shocks of Faith and Love, Ulrich Seidl made possibly the most surprising decision of all: tenderness. The final film in his Paradise trilogy—and by some accounts the best—finds the provocateur at peak warmth (but still transgressive) for a brightly twisted coming of age story.

Paradise: Faith

Ulrich Seidl Austria, 2012

Expiring at midnight PDT
The Paradise Trilogy

After Love comes Faith! Austrian provocateur Seidl took his Paradise anthology into even more dangerous territory, diving forward with zero inhibitions and a positively fiendish eye for unsettling satire. One of best films of 2012, said John Waters! Winner of the Jury Prize at Venice.

Paraíso: Amor

Ulrich Seidl Austria, 2012

On the beaches of Kenya they’re known as “Sugar Mamas” — European women who seek out African boys selling love to earn a living. Teresa, a 50-year-old Austrian and mother of a daughter entering puberty, travels to this vacation paradise, moving from beach to beach…
