This gorgeous documentary from UK artist Ben Rivers (whose short film Trees Down Here we showed last autumn) is the tranquil yet fascinated study of a life of unique solitude. Using 16mm black and white film, Rivers captures the palpable feel of isolation from the modern world. Transfixing.

The Unusual Subjects

One of American cinema’s foremost travelers—not only to places, but between traditional kinds of movies—Jem Cohen’s films excitedly hum as essential transmissions we need to see and hear.

समय सीमा समाप्त

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.

Fish Tail

समय सीमा समाप्त

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.
