CEMETERY OF SPLENDOUR

DIRECTOR: Apichatpong Weerasethakul - THAILAND

A hypnotic cinematic dreamscape unfolds in Thai master Weerasethakul’s new film, in which soldiers with a mysterious sleeping sickness are sent to a temporary clinic in a former school. Perhaps a connection exists between the soldiers’ enigmatic syndrome and the mythic ancient site that lies beneath the makeshift hospital? The memory-filled space becomes a revelatory world for housewife and volunteer Jenjira as she watches over Itt, a handsome soldier. Magic, healing, romance, and dreams are all part of her path to a deeper awareness of herself and the world around her. “. . . so serene, so perfectly meditative, that...

CHEVALIER

DIRECTOR: Athina Rachel Tsangari - GREECE

“While on a fishing trip in the Aegean Sea, six men decide to play Chevalier, a game that measures every aspect of who they are. Things will be compared. Blood will be spilled. At the end of the game, one man will emerge as the best and receive a signet ring. Tsangari further solidifies her place as a master of the Greek cinema new wave with a cleverly written script with co–writer Efthymis Filippou (The Lobster, PIFF39) that is an acute and humorous study of male egotism. Chevalier is an absurdist farce that explores the competitiveness of male relationships as could only be observed by a female auteur.”—AFI Fest. (99 mins.)

Filmography: Attenberg (2010), The Slow Business of Going (2000)

THE CLAN

DIRECTOR: Pablo Trapero - ARGENTINA

The Clan tells the true story of a middle-class family pulled into a world of kidnapping, ransom, and murder by its charismatic patriarch. As a member of the secret police of the Videla military regime of the late 70s and early 80s, it was Arquímedes Puccio’s job to kidnap dissidents during the reign of terror when more than 30,000 citizens simply “disappeared.” But after the fall of the regime, the upper middle class Puccio kept right on going, kidnapping his rich neighbors and demanding huge ransoms – and then killing the victims even after the ransoms were paid. Trapero tackles...

THE CLUB

DIRECTOR: Pablo Larraín - CHILE

A meditation on justice and the Catholic Church, Larraín’s darkly comic, but no less angry, film presents the moral dramas of four exiled priests who live together in a secluded house in a seaside town. A cozy monastery home for priests with “problems,” the men have been sent there to purge sins from the past and spare the church from embarrassment. Living under strict rules and the watchful eye of a female caretaker, the fragile stability of their routine is disrupted by the arrival of a fifth man, a newly-disgraced companion, who brings with him the past they thought they had left behind. Golden Globe nominee. (98 mins.)

Filmography: No (2012), Post Morten (2010), Tony Manero (2008)



Interests: Oscar Submissions.

COUNTING

DIRECTOR: Jem Cohen - UNITED STATES

Cohen (Museum Hours) evokes the fabric of urban life with this richly textured combination of sound and image. A essayistic documentary in 15 chapters, Counting  weaves 15 “snapshots” of New York, Moscow, Istanbul, and more into a tapestry that captures a range of ephemeral moments with an elegiac tenderness—from street protests to flickering lights and the movement of clouds across the sky. Cohen, who has noted that the film initially began in response to the death of cine-essay pioneer Chris Marker, emerges as both rigorous documentarian and consummate flaneur. “Counting is like taking a Sunday walk through spatial and temporal...

COURT

DIRECTOR: Chaitanya Tamhane - INDIA

Winner of top prizes at the Venice and Mumbai film festivals, Tamhane’s film is a quietly devastating, absurdist portrait of injustice, caste prejudice, and venal politics in contemporary India. An elderly folksinger and grassroots organizer is arrested on a trumped-up charge and his trial is a ridiculous and harrowing display of institutional incompetence, with endless procedural delays, coached witnesses for the prosecution, and obsessive privileging of arcane colonial law over reason and mercy. With a cast made up mostly of non-actors, Court weaves a stirring story of class politics, bureaucracy, and justice that winningly captures the societal complexity and contradiction....

COZ OV MONI 2: FOKN REVENGE

DIRECTOR: King Luu - GHANA

Ghana’s most popular rap group, the FOKN Bois, star in what’s been called “the world’s 2nd 1st Pidgin musical.” One needs no knowledge of the first film to thoroughly enjoy the Bois’ screwball search for much food, love, and finally, revenge. The plot may be thin, but the humor-infused, incredibly catchy melodies keep this hip hop opera swimming along. “It looks great, it sounds fantastic, and it utterly defies its audience to not leave the room with a big ol’ smile plastered on after the final credits roll.” – Todd Brown, Twitch Film. (63 mins.)
