VIC + FLO SAW A BEAR

DIRECTOR: Denis Côté - CANADA

Deep in the snow-covered backwoods of Quebec, 61-year-old Vic is trying to escape her criminal past. Fresh out of prison and searching for solitude, her refuge is shattered when fellow ex-con and younger lover Flo comes to stay—bringing with her chaos, violence, and a madcap reckoning with the life they left behind. Part lesbian love story, part revenge thriller, and part oddball comedy, Vic + Flo Saw a Bear is an unclassifiable film by one of Canada’s equally unclassifiable auteurs. “A rich, humane, surprising film [that] manages to mix the drollery of Wes Anderson, the genre swagger of Tarantino, and...

DIRECTOR: Godfrey Reggio - UNITED STATES

Thirty years after their groundbreaking Koyaanisqatsi (Qatsi trilogy), director Godfrey Reggio and composer Philip Glass have joined forces with associate director Jon Kane to create a cinematic time capsule for the 21st century. If the Qatsi trilogy reflected on ideas of balance, transformation, and war, Visitors asks a very different question: who and what is a visitor when we look around ourselves on this planet? Using this idea as a metaphysical departure for his visual reverie, Reggio takes us on a unique voyage into the mysteries and wonders of the universe. Shot in dazzling black and white, Reggio’s visual genius...
