Mad Detective

Johnnie To, Wai Ka-Fai Hongkong S.A.R. Kina, 2007

Next in our Johnnie To series brings out the funnier, weirder side of the director, too often thought of as gravely serious. Starring the great Ching Wan Lau and leavened by the wacky imagination of co-director/writer Wai Ka-fai, this film gleefully twists and plays with the detective genre.

Love and Bruises

Lou Ye Frankrike, 2011

The 2nd film in our Lou Ye retro was made during the director’s exile for having made Summer Palace. Ever dedicated to confronting exploitation in all walks of life, Love and Bruises tackles abuse as experienced by a young woman in an impassioned yet toxic relationship. Difficult, yet necessary.

Djon África

Filipa Reis, João Miller Guerra Portugal, 2018

27 dager å se

Film-duoen João Miller Guerra & Filipa Reis tar i bruk deres dyktige øye for dokumentarfilm for å lage denne delvis fiksjonsfilmen—en lekent, men dypt innblikk inn i Portugals koloni fortid som puster varm ekthet og uimotståelig musikk. Djon África er kanskje anti-helten vi trenger denne sommeren!

The Art of Speech

Olivier Godin Canada, 2016

Canadas Neste Generasjon

En av Québecs mest oppfinnsomme filmatiske poeter, Olivier Godin laget hans skolefilm på et stramt budsjett med ekspresjonistisk bruk av digitalvideo og masse fantasi. Resultatet: The Art of Speech, en Godardian komedie med flere lag og med mysterie og romantikk flettet inn.

Historytelling

Guillaume Langlois Canada, 2018

Canadas Neste Generasjon

We continue our exploration of Canadian cinema with a refreshing documentary short that offers its voice to two classrooms of children of contrasting milieu—one indigenous and the other not—and bravely beckons us to listen to future generations regarding colonialism’s history, present, and future.

West of Zanzibar

Harry Watt Storbritannia, 1954

24 dager å se

Shot on location in East Africa, this loose, classical adventure film, while narratively slight, is an immersive excursion into nature. Director Harry Watt, a documentarian (and apprentice of Robert Flaherty!), expresses the world with a rare sense of life. A forgotten oddity worthy of rediscovery.

A Cambodian Spring

Christopher Kelly Storbritannia, 2017

23 dager å se
Human Rights Watch Film
Festival

It took Irish filmmaker Chris Kelly nine years to complete this unwavering survey of the Cambodian conflict, achieving unexpected universality with his focus on the power of activism in the face of corruption. We proudly present this raw portrait of the uprising of a nation with Human Rights Watch.

Vengeance

Johnnie To Hongkong S.A.R. Kina, 2009

The first in “Men on a Mission,” our three-film series of thrillers by Hong Kong maestro Johnnie To that showcases tenacious determination of professions tested under extreme circumstances. It stars the late, great chanteur-acteur Johnny Hallyday as a man losing his memory yet hell bent on revenge.

Summer Palace

Lou Ye Kina, 2006

After his memory-clouded Purple Butterfly, Lou Ye opted for greater directness in his next romance, set among Beijing students during the 1980s. Featuring both Chinese film’s first full nudity and overt reference to the Tiananmen Square police action, he was banned from filmmaking for 5 years.

Møte i Toscana

Abbas Kiarostami Frankrike, 2010

20 dager å se

Abbas Kiarostami’s first feature film made outside his native Iran is this sumptuous, brain-teasing romance, as a deceptively simple relationship morphs into something more complex—and keeps the audience guessing. Juliette Binoche is radiant, vulnerable, and perfect in the lead role.

The Stairs

Hugh Gibson Canada, 2016

19 dager å se
Canadas Neste Generasjon

Hugh Gibsons menneskelige portrett om de sosiale utfordringene i Toronto. Den gir stemmer til subjekter med intimitet og ærlighet, og tilbyr et sjeldent innblikk på slitet for å danne nye stier for usikre liv.

A Week's Vacation

Bertrand Tavernier Frankrike, 1980

18 dager å se
After the New Wave

With an enveloping lightness of touch, this anecdotal trip through Lyon is an unassuming yet complex portrait of a woman at a crossroads. Brimming with the observational beauty of a city symphony, Tavernier’s film is a warm reminder about the influence the most meaningful bonds have upon one’s life.

The Little Gangster

Jacques Doillon Frankrike, 1990

17 dager å se
After the New Wave

One of the most under-exposed directors who followed the New Wave generation, Jacques Doillon—whose Ponette we showed this spring—has a sophisticated style that deftly balances naturalism and profound psychological interiority. His characters seem to think and feel in ways rarely seen in the cinema.

Berlin, en storbysymfoni

Walter Ruttmann Tyskland, 1927

16 dager å se
City Symphonies

Today we launch a four-city tour of city symphonies: documentaries dedicated to the personalities and energies of unique urban centers. This genre burst into being with Walter Ruttman’s ruminative portrait of Weimar-era Berlin, explored with a style influenced by Sergei Eisenstein and Dziga Vertov.

Le Fort des Fous

Narimane Mari Frankrike, 2017

15 dager å se
Direkte fra Locarno

Our second highlight from the 71st Locarno Festival is an expansive, multi-genre exploration of colonialism that connects the past to today’s migrant crisis. Madmen’s Fort is a defiant, haunting look at History: an overwhelming examination of the politics of power versus the power of utopia.

Purple Butterfly

Lou Ye Kina, 2003

I dag beginner vi vårt retrospektiv på 6. generasjon kinesisk regissør: den store Lou Ye. Han fulgte hans Wong Kar-wai inspirerte suksess Suzhou River med denne vakre 1930-talls krigstid kjærlighet som vrir tid, hukommelse, traume og romantikk mellom kjærester separert av krig og nasjon.

Family Life

Ken Loach Storbritannia, 1971

13 dager å se

Ken Loach teamed up with the great playwright David Mercer for this look at the pitfalls of psychiatry and institutionalization. Aside from this critique, at the center of the film rests a nuanced cast of complicated people trying to do the right thing—an essential film of 1970s British cinema.

Meteors

Gürcan Keltek Tyrkia, 2017

12 dager å se
Direkte fra Locarno

With Locarno opening this week we’re showcasing two genre-bending films from the festival. First is Gürcan Keltek’s evocative documentary that unexpectedly connects cosmic chaos—a gobsmacking meteor shower—and the armed conflict between Turks and Kurds, finding resonances both political and poetic.

For the Plasma

Bingham Bryant, Kyle Molzan USA, 2014

11 dager å se

Described as a “digital-pastoral,” and influenced by the disorientating cinema of Kiyoshi Kurosawa & Raúl Ruiz, this hermeneutical puzzle brings us back to basics: asking how we are to interpret (its) images. Endearingly ambitious, beguilingly stylized, a debut that plays with our every expectation.

Boundaries

Chloé Robichaud Canada, 2016

10 dager å se
Canadas Neste Generasjon

Three women find themselves on the opposite ends of a political negotiation, yet unify under the shared experience of sexism in the workplace. Chloé Robichaud gracefully explores this theme with an arresting conversational structure, a sophisticated play with tone, and a strong sense of landscape.

Kjempen

Johannes Nyholm Sverige, 2016

9 dager å se

The Swedish Johannes Nyholm took everyone by surprise with this original debut feature, a recent festival standout where he fuses social realism with fantasy, adding a renovated Dogme spirit to the mix. The result is welcomingly strange, a rare fable of infectious optimism, likely to win you over.

Under sanden

François Ozon Frankrike, 2000

We draw our series on François Ozon to a close with his break-out hit which re-introduced the world to the austere enchantment of actress Charlotte Rampling. A psychological mystery as gripping and elusive as Repulsion and The Vanishing, it remains one of the great arthouse films of the 2000s.

Vanndråper på brennende sten

François Ozon Frankrike, 2000

Working from an unproduced play by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Ozon made one of his most inventive films of his career with this 70s period piece. A synthesis of subversive genres: part musical, part sex farce, a little melodrama, Water Drops on Burning Rocks is a remarkably sardonic love story.

Criminal Lovers

François Ozon Frankrike, 1999

We continue our series highlighting the provocative early features of François Ozon with one of his most extreme tales. The lovers on the run genre mixes with fairy tales made in the era of Larry Clark’s Kids and Bully—yet starring Dardennes actor Jérémie Rénier!—and is by turns harsh and sexy.

Sitcom

François Ozon Frankrike, 1998

In 1968’s Teorema, a man causes a bourgeois family to question every facet of themselves—in the provocative debut of François Ozon, whom we offer a four-film retrospective of, a pet rat (!) inspires a similar reevaluation amongst a French family. This satire is absurd as much as it’s unforgettable.

Still Night, Still Light

Canadas Neste Generasjon

Vinneren av Rotterdams Bright Future Best First Feature-prisen. Sophie Goyettes film er en reise på tvers av verden med tre sjeler. Lenken av karakterer og historiene deres gir en oppkvikkende opplevelse på måter de fleste filmer forsømmer.

How Heavy This Hammer

Kazik Radwanski Canada, 2015

Canadas Neste Generasjon

Next in our series devoted to new Canadian directors is the 2nd film by the widely acclaimed, Toronto-based Kazik Radwanski. His is an observational cinema devoted to the pathos and the humor of the oddball outsider. Subject of his wry scrutiny is the life of Erwin, a human as banal as he is unique.

Wùlu

Daouda Coulibaly Frankrike, 2016

2 dager å se

Daouda Coulibalys spennende debut tar historien om Scarface til Bamakos gater i Mali. En gripende fortelling om ambisjon som vrir seg inn i kriminalitet og narkotikaverden som blir holdt levende av ikke bare Coulibaly, men også opptredenen til Ibrahim Koma.

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975

Göran Olsson Sverige, 2011

Utløper ved mindatt PDT

Later finished by a new generation of filmmakers after a goldmine of footage was discovered from this turbulent time in American race relations, The Black Power Mixtape is a revelatory portrait of what should have been but a moment in history, yet this period has sadly not yet passed. Essential.

Oh, Woe Is Me

Jean-Luc Godard Sveits, 1993

This complex allegorical tale tells the story of man’s quest for spiritual meaning. When God enters the body of 1980s filmmaker Simon Donnadieu, his wife Rachel realizes that something has gone awry, but chooses to remain faithful to her erratically-behaving husband.
