FAMILY ROMANCE, LLC

Werner Herzog United States, 2019

MUBI is ecstatic to take you on a surreal new adventure with indefatigable globetrotting auteur, Werner Herzog. Filmed guerrilla-style in Japan, Herzog’s unique dramatization of the real phenomenon of renting family members and social stand-ins explores the uncanny essence of human relationships.

THE GRAND BIZARRE

Jodie Mack United States, 2018

From MUBI regular Jodie Mack comes a tour de force, sui generis globetrotting textile documentary in the form of a 16mm abstract animated (and musical!) feature. An entrancing experience that is as much about the creation and circulation of fabric as it’s about the pure pleasure of color and design.

A RUSSIAN YOUTH

Alexander Zolotukhin Russia, 2019

As seen with Kantemir Balagov, master Aleksandr Sokurov is mentoring a new generation of gifted Russian filmmakers. Intriguingly blending a painterly WWI tale with contemporary orchestra rehearsals, Zolotukhin’s debut is awe-inspiring: at once a film from another era, and a pioneer of something new.

AROUND THE WORLD WHEN YOU WERE MY AGE

Aya Koretzky Portugal, 2018

A parent and child meet across eras, countries, and memories in Aya Koretzky’s enchanting documentary about her Japanese father’s exceptional globetrotting adventures in the 1970s. As her father’s life blooms before the filmmaker, we see how, decades before, the world blossomed for the young man.

THE STAGGERING GIRL

Luca Guadagnino Italy, 2019

The Italian director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name) collaborated with Pierpaolo Piccioli, creative director of Valentino, for this short film. With a star-laden cast and score by Ryuichi Sakamoto, The Staggering Girl unfolds with the mysteriousness of a dream, sumptuous and elusive.

ANTIPORNO

Sion Sono Japan, 2016

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.

RYUICHI SAKAMOTO: CODA

Stephen Nomura Schible United States, 2017

Stephen Nomura Schible’s wonderful feature debut is a revelatory exploration of Ryuichi Sakamoto, his work, environmentalism, and the incredible album async. This lovely and graceful exploration offers a rare glimpse into the artistic process of the renowned musician.
