LE WEEK-END

Roger Michell United Kingdom, 2013

A British comedy can still be funny outside of its country! The perfect example is Le Week-End, which elegantly and delightfully swerves between the feelings of hate and love, between lightness and reflection, as it follows a long-term couple rediscovering their attraction in the French capital.

OUR TIME

Carlos Reygadas Mexico, 2018

Carlos Reygadas’ cinema is one of meticulous observation and grandiose revelations. Casting himself and his real-life wife, the Mexican auteur boldly explores—with spellbinding visuals—the dark corners of relationships, dissecting patriarchy along the way. A domestic drama of majestic proportions.

THE PRESIDENT'S LAST BANG

Im Sang-soo Korea Selatan, 2005

A dark comedy at heart, incisive filmmaker Im Sang-soo (The Housemaid) upends conspiracy thrillers in this political satire. Rather than investigating motives, the film ruffled feathers with its humor and profanity—resulting in censorship and libel suits at the time of its release.

FRAGILE AS THE WORLD

Rita Azevedo Gomes Portugal, 2002

Next in our focus on Rita Azevedo Gomes is the Portuguese filmmaker’s serene sophomore feature: a strikingly stylized, fable-like story of impossible young love. Impeccably crafted, Fragile as the World is both rigorous and delicate, oscillating poetically between black and white and color.

OFFICE

Johnnie To China, 2015

Johnnie To’s glimmering, genre-bending masterpiece is a collaboration with the great Sylvia Chang, who co-stars and adapted her stage musical. A wicked intertwining of romance and capitalism, it features Chow Yun-fat and gorgeously artificial production design by Wong Kar-wai favorite William Chang.

VIVA RIVA!

Djo Tunda Wa Munga Republik Demokratik Congo, 2010

This slick Congolese thriller from emerging director Djo Munga (State of Mind) takes us through the crime-ridden backstreets of DR Congo’s capital with electrifying pacing and a deliciously noir-soaked nihilism. Expect plenty of sex, violence, and some tightly wound performances: Viva Riva indeed!

We’re thrilled to open our focus on Portuguese luminary Rita Azevedo Gomes and her sublime cinema of artifice with one of her latest marvels. This 16th century tale of a woman’s torpor, based on a Robert Musil novella, comes to life through theatrical splendour and striking, painterly compositions.

LA FLOR (PART 3)

Mariano Llinás Argentina, 2018

Upending the predictability of episodic structure, La Flor reinvents itself with formal and thematic shifts. Part 3 contains a metafiction, a remake of Jean Renoir’s A Day in the Country, and a period piece, but make sure to stick around for the unmissable 38-minute long end credit sequence.

LA FLOR (PART 2)

Mariano Llinás Argentina, 2018

Moving through genres and filmmaking modes, one constant remains throughout La Flor: Elisa Carricajo, Valeria Correa, Pilar Gamboa, and Laura Paredes, the four remarkable actors at the heart of the film. Entertaining throughout, the second part is composed of one episode, a winding spy thriller.

LA FLOR (PART 1)

Mariano Llinás Argentina, 2018

Ten years in the making, this sublimely playful Argentinian epic is split in three parts of six episodes that each tell different stories with different genres—but the same actresses!—and introduced by director Mariano Llinás himself. A madly entertaining journey worth every minute of its runtime.

STAY AS YOU ARE

Alberto Lattuada Itali, 1978

A much-missed Ennio Morricone composed the score to this steamy Spanish-Italian sex film, starring a world-weary Marcello Mastrioanni and a young Nastassja Kinski at the height of her charms. A cult erotic drama about incest, age gaps, and absent father figures that’s very much of its time!

VILLA EMPAIN

Katharina Kastner Belgium, 2019

Ada tempat yang dihantui sejarah. Salah satunya dijumpai oleh Katharina Kastner: rumah agam Baron Empain yang mewah dibina tahun 1934 dengan reka bina menakjubkan yang melalui pengabaian dan pembinaan semula.

Dalam kolaj puitis yang terdiri daripada kad tajuk yang tidak dapat dilupakan, Jennifer West dengan mudah sahaja bertukar-tukar format, teknik dan tipografi untuk hasilkan “montaj psikologi” yang membayangkan jiwa kaki wayang. Filem warna-warni ini membuktikan kuasa filem dalam membentuk tanggapan.

GANJA & HESS

Bill Gunn Amerika Syarikat, 1973

Kicking off our double feature of masterpieces by director Bill Gunn is an impossible-to-define mix of midnight horror, lyrical imagery, and heartfelt eloquence. A passionate act of provocation, Gunn challenged the blaxploitation genre with this complex tale of addiction and Black high society.
