JALANAN

DIRECTOR: DANIEL ZIV - INDONESIA

Part music documentary and part examination of the frenetically paced megacity of Jakarta (10 million people), Jalanan (“Streetside”) tells the captivating story of Boni, Ho, and Titi, three gifted, charismatic street musicians, over a tumultuous five-year period. The film deftly uses their experiences as a lens on Indonesia’s teeming capital, conjuring up a striking, moody, and intimate portrait of a place caught in the grip of globalization. Using the powerful soundtrack of the musicians’ original compositions to drive the film, Ziv traces their elusive quest for identity and love in the day-to-day of a city overrun by the effects...

JAUJA

DIRECTOR: LISANDRO ALONSO - ARGENTINA

“A work of tremendous beauty and a source of continual surprise, Alonso’s film is set during the Argentinian army’s Conquest of the Desert in the 1870s and is his first with international stars (Viggo Mortensen), and with a co-writer—poet and novelist Fabián Casas. But the emphasis, as in all his work, is on bodies in landscapes. Danish military engineer Gunnar Dinesen (Mortensen, in a Technicolor-bright cavalry uniform) traverses a visually stunning variety of Patagonian shrub, rock, grass, and desert on horseback and on foot in search of his teenage daughter, who has eloped with a new love. Alonso’s style...
