AFTERLIFE

DIRECTOR: VIRÁG ZOMBORÁCZ - HUNGARY

Mózes, a rather neurotic young man in his twenties, is unable to meet his domineering father’s expectations. So when his father suddenly has a heart attack and dies, Mózes is almost relieved; the pressure on him has been lifted. But at the funeral he notices his father’s disoriented ghost, which, although it cannot speak, follows him around, confused and searching. Mózes panics at first, then decides to complete his father’s unfinished tasks because, according to a spiritualist car repair man, this is the only way to get rid of a ghost. This energetic coming-of-age story from female director Virág Zomborácz...

ALL THE WOMEN

DIRECTOR: MARIANO BARROSO - SPAIN

“Spanish machismo is picked apart with surgical precision in Barroso’s engrossing All the Women, Winner of the Goya (Spanish Academy Award) for Best Adapted Screenplay. Nacho (Eduard Fernández), a down and out middle-aged veterinarian, seeks advice from the most important women in his life—his lover, his ex-wife, his mother, his sister-in-law, and his psychologist—after his scheme to steal cattle from his father-in-law falls apart. He soon finds his character indicted by each one of them. A scaled-back, sharp-eyed, David Mamet-inspired deconstruction of the fragile psyches of Spanish and other males, anchored in Fernandez’s memorable central performance.”—The Hollywood Reporter.

ALLÉLUIA

DIRECTOR: FABRICE DU WELZ - BELGIUM

Updated for the Internet era, Du Welz’s remake of the classic The Honeymoon Killers is based on the true story of ’60s serial killers Martha Beck and Raymond Fernandez, who met women through personal ads, moved in, and then murdered them. Here, lonely Gloria meets conman Michel through an online dating service and quickly falls for his charms. When she discovers he’s swindled both her heart and her wallet, she agrees to help him seduce other women just so she can be with him. Gloria’s obsession with Michel turns their relatively innocent hustle into something much darker when she jealously...

ARTICO

DIRECTOR: GABRIEL VELÁZQUEZ - SPAIN

In Ärtico, winner of special mention honors at the Berlin Film Festival, Jota and Simón are two “quinquis” (nomads), aged 20, who wander the streets every day to make ends meet. But apart from their carefree thefts and wheelings and dealings, both want something they don’t have. Simon, already a father, wishes to find his freedom. Jota, whose girlfriend is a drug-addict, wants to build a family. What will it take for these two—and a drifting generation like them—to find a life? Gritty, bleak, and breathtaking, with intensely physical performances from its amateur cast, Ärtico contrasts the picturesque natural landscapes...

She is involved with Jeison, who free dives for lobster and octopus in his spare time. During the month of August, when tropical storms pound the coastline, a researcher registering the sound of the trade winds arrives in their village. The high tides and the growing winds mark the following days of the...
