The New Auteurs

The second feature by Virgil Vernier spins unusual stories from within its socially and politically charged Riviera setting with a wry sense of humor and supple poetic touch that never dampens its sharp critique. It’s a state-of-France portrait that is as idiosyncratic as it is surprising.


Agnieszka Smoczyńska Poland, 2018

The New Auteurs

We’re excited to introduce The New Auteurs, a strand dedicated to emerging filmmakers with distinct visions! Smoczyńska’s follow-up to the striking The Lure is a dark tale of amnesia that spirals into a maze of identities while sharply—yet elegantly—questioning the role of women in modern societies.
