MUBI is continuing its partnership with New York's Film Society of Lincoln Center to present online selections from the New York Film Festival's Projections
section, showing a stunning collection of highlights from last year's edition. Past collaborations with the Film Society provided online audiences access to a retrospective from the NYFF's 2014 Projections section
, their Friends with Benefits
series, and their Art of the Real
We covered Projections
as it happened in New York, and now MUBI will exclusively be showing the following features direct from the festival in most countries around the world:
Shot on the otherworldly beaches of Morocco in silvery 16mm Scope, the film transforms behind-the-scenes footage (of Shezad Dawood’s production of Towards the Possible Film commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella) into a dreamy film fragment depicting sci-fi incursions into a mythic landscape.
An ecology of signs lurking amid seductive 16mm travel footage echoes with post-colonial reverberations in Ana Vaz’s deceptively corrosive, award-winning Occidente.
A "false translation" of the 1,000 year old Book of Optics, which debunks theories that the eyes emit rays, or that objects project replicas of themselves, and accurately describes the strengths and weaknesses of human vision.
Samuel M. Delgado and Helena Girón go in search of the last living witch in Yé, a small town on the island of Lanzarote, recuperating non-verbal histories on the verge of obsolescence and evoking an eerie, otherworldly atmosphere where oblivion looms.
The Gerês Mountain separates Portugal from Galicia. It knows no borders, and rocks cross from one country to another with insolence. Smugglers also disobey this separation, waiting for the night to cross the distance that separates them.
