The Unusual Subjects

Innovative Spanish director Pere Portabella’s “documentary” is one of the most unique and experimental horror films ever made—a horror film about the making of a horror film! In its sneaky, clandestine production, it also stands out as a key work pushing Spanish cinema against the Franco regime.

From the team of producers behind the legendary documentary Hoop Dreams, Maria Finitzo’s wise, patient film similarly commits its vision to a team of high school athletes and their communal quest for a greater education through soccer.

The Unusual Subjects

The filmmaking duo behind the acclaimed What Now, Remind Me?, followed up that success with this gorgeous and calming anthropological portrait of a fishing village at war with encroaching industry. Fish Tail is study in a people’s perseverance and has a rare, tangible connection with its subjects.

Fuck for Forest

Michał Marczak Polonia, 2012

We continue our Unusual Subjects series with perhaps the most uncanny subject matter of the selection: Fuck For Forest, for which the title effectively doubles as a synopsis. We’ll say no more. Winner of the Best Documentary at the Warsaw International Film Festival.

Portrait of a Garden

Rosie Stapel Holanda, 2015

A truly undiscovered subject is chased in this enveloping documentary which at first glance concerns the life of a single garden, then expands outwards in subject matter towards generational gaps, friendship, and time itself. A lovely and generous look into a world ripe for discovery.

Zipper: Coney Island's Last Wild Ride

Amy Nicholson Estados Unidos, 2012

Next in our documentary series The Unusual Subjects, a Coney Island roller coaster! The Zipper takes on a symbolic role in this ground-level portrait of a changing neighborhood, as the iconic and once-glorious Brooklyn amusement park tries to finds its place in a gentrifying and changing New York.

15 Corners of the World

Zuzanna Solakiewicz Polonia, 2014

Contando con archivos y metraje actuales, este perfil documental de Eugeniusz Rudnik, un compositor que trabajó en los comienzos de la música electrónica, es un único y sinestésico intento de que el espectador vea sus sonidos revolucionarios. Ganador del Premio de la Semana de la Crítica en Locarno.

Dust
