Olla

Ariane Labed Francia, 2019

Siamo felicissimi di proporvi l’esordio alla regia di Ariane Labed (Attenberg, The Lobster), che è a dir poco esplosivo! Presentato l’anno scorso a Cannes, questo gioiellino da 27 minuti sovverte l’idea comune di femminilità e immigrazione con una valanga di stile, umorismo e introspezione.

Perché il signor R. è colto da follia improvvisa?

Rainer Werner Fassbinder Germania Ovest, 1970

To celebrate R.W. Fassbinder’s birthday, we present what is perhaps his most biting film, co-directed by Michael Fengler. Framing the daily life of a common family in mocking, deliberately long takes, the film condemns the triviality of West German affluence before ending with frenzied violence.

L'angelo azzurro

Josef von Sternberg Germania, 1930

Weimar Germany

With their seven film partnership, Josef von Sternberg and Marlene Dietrich traced a path of lush, scandalous romantic fantasies, of which The Blue Angel was their first. A masterpiece of relationship masochism, The Last Laugh’s Emil Jannings wilts before Dietrich, in her career-making role.

Around the World When You Were My Age

Aya Koretzky Portogallo, 2018

In esclusiva
Terre inesplorate

Padre e figlia si incontrano attraverso epoche, Paesi e ricordi nell’incantevole documentario di Koretsky sulle eccezionali avventure dell’uomo in giro per il mondo negli anni ’70. Mentre la vita del padre sboccia sullo schermo, vediamo come, anni prima, il mondo era sbocciato di fronte a lui.

Two Ships

Justine Triet Francia, 2012

Before her Cannes Competition debut Sibyl, the young French filmmaker Justine Triet (In Bed With Victoria) transitioned from documentary filmmaking with this acclaimed, prizewinning short fiction film: an all-night urban comedy-drama, full of spirit and starring the great Laetitia Dosch.

Lo straniero

Satyajit Ray India, 1991

In esclusiva
Un viaggio nel cinema
indiano

Satyajit Ray’s last film, The Stranger is a philosophical work that ponders about the evolution of civilization and human nature. Based on his own short story Athiti, this film comments on the state of the world where the value of material wealth far exceeds that of humanity, trust, and love.

Bird Talk

Xawery Żuławski Polonia, 2019

In esclusiva
First Look

Closing our series of highlights from First Look is this urgent and exhilarating political parable, penned by the director’s late father, filmmaker Andrzej Żuławski. An unhinged and reverential tribute to one of cinema’s greatest legends, the film is also a trenchant look at Poland today.

Metropolis

Fritz Lang Germania, 1927

Easily one of the most iconic films ever made, Fritz Lang’s classic future shock is still thrilling. A propulsive epic and mind-blowing visual symphony, Lang’s deeply influential vision is both the foundation of sci-fi cinema and a time-honored gateway to the expressive wonders of silent film.

Crystal Swan

Darya Zhuk Bielorussia, 2018

In esclusiva

L’esordio modaiolo ed esuberante di Zhuk non rievoca affatto gli anni ‘90 con nostalgia, ma è cosparso di affetto vivido, umorismo caustico e un tocco amorevole. Bravissima è anche l’attrice Alina Nasibullina, che interpreta una giovane donna desiderosa di cambiare la propria vita. Un film vincente.

Last Letter

Shunji Iwai Cina, 2018

Japanese director Shunji Iwai (All About Lily Chou-Chou) heads to China to cast a spell of romance and time in this charming, generation-hopping story of love letters, separation, and loss. Wonderful with actors old and young, Iwai spins a deliriously convoluted story juggling melodrama and comedy.

Take Me Somewhere Nice

Ena Sendijarević Paesi Bassi, 2019

In esclusiva
Esordi

As in all great journeys, the characters of Ena Sendijarević’s award-winning debut won’t be the same after this adventure. Vibrantly nodding to Jarmusch’s beloved Stranger Than Paradise, this stylized, offbeat road movie glows with pastel-colored melancholy, Balkan humor and teen self-discovery.

Cassandro, the Exotico!

Marie Losier Francia, 2018

Nel mirino

Portraiture is central to French-born, New York-based artist Marie Losier’s work. In Cassandro, Losier captures body and soul of the queer luchador with unmitigated warmth and empathy, gorgeously echoing the flamboyance and resilience of her subject with the beguiling physicality of her 16mm images.

L'inafferrabile

Fritz Lang Germania, 1928

Talk about an opening sequence! A fan favorite and the most underrated of Fritz Lang’s Weimar “superfilms,” Spies is a caper for the ages. Predating the adventures of Bond and Tintin, Lang invents the modern spy film: crackling with twists, disguises, gadgetry, narrow escapes, and forbidden love.

Searching Eva

Pia Hellenthal Germania, 2019

In esclusiva
First Look

Next up in our series of highlights from First Look is Pia Hellenthal’s audacious character study. An unforgettable 21st-century portrait, the film focuses on the elusive Eva, constantly constructing and fully exposing themself on camera and the Internet while, simultaneously, resisting definition.

La vita è un miracolo

Emir Kusturica Serbia, 2004

Probably breaking all of the safety rules that ever existed, Emir Kusturica’s Life Is a Miracle is a zany and surrealist vignette of Yugoslavia on the brink of the Bosnian War. A cacophonous, swirling and drunken celebration, with tinges of tragedy and criticism surrounding the conflict.

Underground

Emir Kusturica Jugoslavia, 1995

Opening our double bill of historical fiction from auteur Emir Kusturica is this Palme d’Or winner from 1995. An expansive masterpiece, the film is an exhilarating and absurdist satire, earning its reputation as one of the most controversial yet vital political tales in cinema.

L'uomo dal braccio d'oro

Otto Preminger Stati Uniti, 1955

Besides making masterpiece after masterpiece, in the 1950s Austrian emigre auteur Otto Preminger was known for pushing the envelope of American censorship. Try this one on for size: Frank Sinatra as a drug addict! Impeccably fluid filmmaking, a legendary performance, and an unforgettable score.

Nosferatu - Il vampiro

F.W. Murnau Germania, 1922

You don’t need sound to be terrified. Off-brand at the time (thus, Nosferatu and not Dracula), F.W. Murnau’s Expressionist masterpiece is now iconic horror. Its spare medieval atmosphere and Max Schreck’s iconic, otherworldly vampire seems to get increasingly eerie and disturbing as the film ages.

Love in the Buff

Pang Ho-Cheung RAS di Hong Kong, 2012

Fueled by its easygoing lead actors, director Pang Ho-Cheung strikes the perfect balance between humor and melodrama in this charming love story. Depicting a glossy Beijing rife with young professional singles, the film is also a universal look at modern dating in all of its virtues and faults.

Transnistra

Anna Eborn Svezia, 2019

In esclusiva
First Look

Continuing our series of highlights from First Look is this candid look at the unfettered virtues of youth. Shot on handheld 16mm and rendered through the generous participation of its subjects, the film tracks the end of adolescence through its intimate lens and gorgeous soundtrack.

Carnevale di anime

Herk Harvey Stati Uniti, 1962

An influence on David Lynch, George A. Romero, and Lucrecia Martel (!) this lone feature film from Herk Harvey is a bona fide cult classic of both independent filmmaking and psychological horror. An atmospheric and unsettling, haunting ghost story, innovatively shot—on a shoestring budget.

The Fall

Jonathan Glazer Regno Unito, 2019

Incontri Fugaci

Glazer fa ritorno con un’allegoria infernale della violenza collettiva. Volti pietrificati, un misterioso pozzo in una foresta oscura, una rabbia ancestrale e l’inquietante colonna sonora di Mica Levi sono gli elementi che compongono l’equivalente cinematografico de “La lotteria” di Shirley Jackson.

Neon Bull

Gabriel Mascaro Brasile, 2015

Neon Bull captures the world of Brazil’s vaquejada rodeo tradition through a sensual, intimate, and realist style—finding grace in the mundane, unearthing tenderness within the bestial. The human is never far from the animal in this meditative, scintillating slice-of-life portrait of a community.

La gaia scienza

Jean-Luc Godard Francia, 1969

Between 1960 and 1969, Godard made 17(!) features in a great burst of radical creativity. Le gai savoir, his final film of the 60s, is a work of pared-down invention and subversive pop montage, in which two beguiling icons of the New Wave (Jean-Pierre Léaud and Juliet Berto) take center stage.

From Caligari to Hitler: German Cinema in the Age of the Masses

Rüdiger Suchsland Germania, 2014

The cornerstone of our series on cinema from Weimar Germany is Rüdiger Suchsland’s sweeping documentary. Visualizing Siegfried Kracauer’s influential book from 1947, the film uses beautiful restorations of films by Lang, Murnau, and others to contextualize the period and showcase its masterpieces.

Fuoco a oriente

Lewis Milestone Stati Uniti, 1943

A pro-Soviet Goldwyn production, Lewis Milestone’s Oscar-nominated invasion drama is truly one-of-a-kind: a song-filled war film set in a besieged Ukrainian farming village inhabited by Anne Baxter, Dana Andrews, and Walter Huston. With cinematography by James Wong Howe and music by Aaron Copeland!

Antigone

Jean-Marie Straub Germania, 1992

In esclusiva
Retrospettiva
Straub-Huillet

Riprendiamo la nostra lunga retrospettiva su Straub-Huillet con una nuova versione restaurata di uno dei loro film più impetuosi e accessibili. Fungendo da canale tra l’era di Sofocle e il presente, Antigone costituisce una visione fresca del potere femminile che si oppone al patriarcato.

Nofinofy

Michaël Andrianaly Madagascar, 2019

In esclusiva
First Look

We’re partnering with the Museum of the Moving Image to offer highlights from First Look, starting with an intimate portrait of a barber in Madagascar offering patrons an empathetic ear. The film lends its subject similar warmth, gradually revealing personal challenges and issues facing the nation.

L'ultima risata

F.W. Murnau Germania, 1924

We begin a new series devoted to masterpieces of the short-lived Weimar Republic with a dazzling and groundbreaking drama of modern city life. Emil Jannings delivers one of cinema’s most indelible of performances, and F.W. Murnau (Sunrise, Faust) gives the story its full range of tragedy and beauty.
