THE THIRD SIDE OF THE RIVER

DIRECTOR: CELINA MURGA - ARGENTINA

Seventeen-year-old Nicholas’s father is a respected doctor, but he lives a double life: one, seemingly harmonious, with Nico and his mother and siblings; and the other, mere blocks away, with his second family—with whom he spends most of his time and the bulk of his money. The titular third side of the river refers to a sort of purgatory or limbo, effective imagery for Nicholas, who, torn between protecting the family he loves and choosing his own future, becomes tormented by a tension so tightly wound it threatens to become explosive. Executive produced by Martin Scorsese and winner of the...

TIMBUKTU

DIRECTOR: ABDERRAHMANE SISSAKO - MAURITANIA

Not far from Timbuktu, now ruled by religious fundamentalists, mild-mannered herdsman Kidane lives peacefully in the dunes with his wife and daughter. In town, the people suffer, powerless, from the regime of terror imposed by the Jihadists; music, laughter, cigarettes, even soccer have been banned. Every day, the new improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences, and when Kidane accidentally kills a neighbor, he is forced to confront the chaos head on. Set in the early days of the jihadist takeover of northern Mali in 2012, Sissako’s drama delivers a warm and often humorous condemnation of religious intolerance. This year’s...

THE TRIBE

DIRECTOR: MIROSLAV SLABOSHPITSKY - UKRAINE

Winner of the Critics Week Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, the astonishing The Tribe uses only sign language and the actors’ body language to propel the tense drama. Somewhere in Ukraine, Sergey enters a specialized boarding school for the deaf. He quickly encounters the Tribe, a student gang dealing in crime and prostitution. After passing their hazing rituals and being inducted into the group, he takes part in several robberies, works his way up, and becomes pimp/protector for two girls who turn tricks at the local truck stop. Finding himself in love with one of them, Sergey ultimately...

TU DORS NICOLE

DIRECTOR: STÉPHANE LAFLEUR - CANADA

Infused with absurdist humor and a sense of ennui, Lafleur’s film hones in on young adults at existential crossroads. Twenty-something Nicole is adrift after college, working a dead-end summer job in her small Quebec hometown and spending evenings with her best pal, Véronique. When her older brother Remi unexpectedly returns with his bandmates in tow, disrupting the girls’ wheel-spinning summer, it becomes clear to Nicole that something must—and will—change. Shot in luminous black and white and infused with a sultry melancholy, Tu Dors Nicole captures that liminal stage where the fading yet familiar attachments of youth still seem far more...
