Bright Nights

Thomas Arslan Germania, 2017

In cartellone
Disponibile fino a mezzanotte

Un padre cerca di ristabilire un rapporto con il figlio dopo anni di assenza e nessun contatto. Decide allora di portarlo a fare un viaggio in macchina nel nord della Norvegia, sperando che non sia troppo tardi.

The Night I Swam

Damien Manivel, Igarashi Kohei Francia, 2017

In cartellone
29 giorni rimasti

Montagne innevate in Giappone. Ogni notte, un pescatore raggiunge il mercato in città. Suo figlio di 6 anni viene svegliato dalla sua partenza e non riesce a riaddormentarsi. Nel silenzio della notte, il bambino fa un disegno che poi infila nella sua cartellina.


Michael Glawogger, Monika Willi Austria, 2017

non più disponibile da 13 giorni

Più di due anni dopo la morte improvvisa di Michael Glawogger nell’aprile del 2014, la tecnica del montaggio Monika Willi decise di realizzare un film a partire dal materiale girato in 4 mesi e 19 giorni tra Balcani, Italia e Africa Occidentale e Nordoccidentale.

A Decent Woman

Lukas Valenta Rinner Argentina, 2016

non più disponibile da 27 giorni

Una donna delle pulizie che lavora in un’esclusiva comunità abitativa della periferia di Buenos Aires intraprende un viaggio di liberazione mentale e sessuale in un sex club nudista.

Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

Julian Radlmaier Germania, 2017


Il giovane regista Julian, interpretato in modo ironico dallo stesso regista Julian Radlmaier, si innamora di una giovane straniera e le offre il ruolo di protagonista nella sua immaginaria favola comunista.


Léa Mysius Francia, 2017


One of the best debuts of the year lands on MUBI! Premiering in Cannes in May, Mysius’ beguiling exploration of female sexuality and teenage fears is a life-affirming, infectious blend of ravishing colors, whimsical humor and the dreamy melancholy of a transformative summer. Bonus: that soundtrack!


Sion Sono Giappone, 2016

Following Wet Woman on the Wind, we bring you the latest Nikkatsu Roman Porno reboot. Genre-bending Japanese provocateur Sono Sion (Love Exposure) flips his assignment on its head, transforming his softcore film into a candy-colored, fourth-wall-breaking exposé of the sex (and art) industry.

Wet Woman in the Wind

Akihiko Shiota Giappone, 2016

Nikkatsu is rebooting its legendary Roman Porno series, giving different directors creative freedom in exchange for thriftiness and a healthy dose of sex. The first of these softcore art films (or arty softcore films, if you wish!), is Akihiko Shiota’s slapstick comedy, a breezily playful delight.

Under Electric Clouds

Aleksei German Ml. Russia, 2015


A grandiose vision of Russia’s future (in fact, 2017!) by Aleksei German Jr., son of the legendary director Aleksei German (Hard to Be a God). As with Zvyagintsev’s Leviathan, a building takes on epic new meaning as different people’s stories whirl around its totemic hulk in this audacious drama.

A German Youth

Jean-Gabriel Périot Francia, 2015


Un film che si apre con Godard e si chiude con Fassbinder non può che avere un’anima combattiva. Rifiutando coraggiosamente la narrazione audio, il collage di Périot di filmati d’archivio dei disordini politici della Germania del dopoguerra è una superba meditazione sulla radicalizzazione.

One Floor Below

Radu Muntean Romania, 2015


A murder is hidden behind the quotidian tapestry of everyday life in Romanian New Wave director Radu Muntean’s subtle and observant drama, which premiered in Cannes. A man tries to follow his routine while a death in his building quietly simmers his world in a mix of guilt, suspicion, and secrecy.

The Future Perfect

Nele Wohlatz Argentina, 2016


It’s not very often that a film is smart and modest at the same time. German-born, Argentina-based Nele Wohlatz has made an impossibly humble comedy, unassumingly clever and irresistibly warm, so empathetic in capturing what being a foreigner feels like that will restore your hope in humanity.

Hello Destroyer

Kevan Funk Canada, 2016


Canada is amidst a renaissance of refreshing movies by a new wave of directors. Told with a bold disaffected style recalling Michael Haneke, this debut is at the forefront. Hello Destroyer is an intimate portrait of a young hockey player and an incisive reflection on institutionalized violence.

Brooks, Meadows and Lovely Faces

Yousry Nasrallah Egitto, 2016


Egyptian auteur Yousry Nasrallah deftly weaves between drama, comedy and subtle political insight in this warm and colorful social tapestry. Romantic, business and sexual relationships swirl around a wedding, a grand, music and food-filled event touching all types of people, wealthy and working.

The Event

Sergei Loznitsa Paesi Bassi, 2015


Sergei Loznitsa has made an astounding documentary from restored footage of the dramatic cavalcade of events during the collapse of the Soviet Union 26 years ago this month: government dissolution, Gorbachev gone missing, and a coup d’etat. Like today, we only know what is presented to the public.

Eldorado XXI

Salomé Lamas Francia, 2016


Not only a stunning ethnographic portrait of a community and landscape, Eldorado XXI is also a haunting, immersive experience—a trance that blends the grandeur of a mythical land with the shadow of colonialism, blurring the limits of cinematic narrative. Please watch on the biggest screen you can.

Scarred Hearts

Radu Jude Romania, 2016


Romanian New Wave director Radu Jude follows up his award-winning Aferim! with this wry adaptation mixing an author’s writings with his life. Shooting his colorful 35mm production in playfully old fashioned 4:3, this ode to an ingenious and poetic soul is a delightful mix of melancholy and humor.

Le Moulin

Huang Ya-li Taiwan, 2015


With remarkable variety of form and a graceful touch, this expansive yet tremendously sensitive debut by Huang Ya-li is an epic and detailed immersion into a remarkable group of writers in Taiwan. Spanning three decades of political turmoil and war, we movingly watch their struggle to create art.

Over the Years

Nikolaus Geyrhalter Austria, 2015


Acclaimed documentarian Nikolaus Geyrhalter returned to Waldviertel for 10 years to film this one-of-a-kind, sprawling portrait of a region transformed year after year by economic turmoil. You powerfully get to know these people literally across time as they deal with wages and aging.

John From

João Nicolau Portogallo, 2015


João Nicolau has become one of the main voices of contemporary Portuguese cinema, next to the likes of Miguel Gomes or João Pedro Rodrigues. This dreamy coming-of-age tale of both epic and intimate proportions—just like first love—is a truly original, enchanting ode to adolescence and fantasy.


Antoine Barraud Francia, 2015


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.

Sarah Winchester, Phantom Opera

Bertrand Bonello Francia, 2016


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.

Between Fences

Avi Mograbi Israele, 2016


How can a migrant tell his or her story? Documentarian Avi Mograbi has come together with theater director Chen Alon to collaborate with detainees in Israel not only to document their treatment but to work together using Theater of the Oppressed methods to dramatize their incredible experiences.

Silvered Water, Syria Self-Portrait

Ossama Mohammed, Wiam Bedirxan Francia, 2014


“1001 images of Syria, shot by 1001 Syrians,” says Mohammed, an exile in Paris following the traces of his country’s war found online. Later, Kurdish director Wiam Simav Bedirxan sends him footage from Homs. An immensely powerful and moving correspondence between exile and home, images and reality.

The Park

Damien Manivel Francia, 2016

We are proud to present our first Special Discovery—bringing you gems direct from the world’s best film festivals—the second film by emerging French director Damien Manivel. A minimalist romance charting an entire teenage relationship over the course of a day, by night things turn phantasmagoric.
