DEMON

DIRECTOR: Marcin Wrona - POLAND

Things quickly get out of hand at a Polish wedding when the groom appears to have been possessed by a spirit from the past. Adapted from Piotr Rowicki’s 2008 stage play “Adherence,” Marcin Wrona’s final film is a ghost story that takes the Jewish myth of the dybbuk and commingles it with strong nods to Kubrick’s THE SHINING, including the use of a Penderecki score. “The thematics give DEMON meat, make it a great film, but it’s the filmmaking that makes DEMON a great movie to watch.” – Devin Faraci, Birth. Movies. Death. (94 mins.)

DHEEPHAN

DIRECTOR: Jacques Audiard - FRANCE

Jacques Audiard won the Palme d’Or at Cannes for this gripping tale of three Sri Lankan refugees and their immigrant struggle. Escaping the Civil War, a couple and a girl—all complete strangers—pose as a family and seek refuge in France. Supporting each other like a real family, Dheepan, the father, finds work as a custodian; Yalini, the mother, gets a job as a caregiver; and the daughter, Illayaal, adjusts to school life. Unfortunately, the place they’ve chosen as a home is in the middle of a gangland, and the family must cope with the threat. In Tamil, English, and French...

DISORDER

DIRECTOR: Alice Winocour - FRANCE

Afghanistan war vet Vincent is suffering from PTSD. He’s hired as a temp security guard at Maryland, the estate of Lebanese businessman Whalid. Soon, he overhears a conversation that seems to indicate Whalid is involved in illegal arms dealing. Vincent’s paranoid episodes only increase when he’s hired as a bodyguard for Whalid’s icy German wife Jessie and her son. But is the threat is outside the gates of Maryland or already within them? Told largely through Vincent’s anxious point of view, this claustrophobic thriller makes the most of rhythm, sound, and silence to create an atmosphere of building unease. (101...

DON'T BE BAD

DIRECTOR: Claudio Caligari - ITALY

Set in the mid-1990’s in Ostia on the outskirts of Rome, Vittorio and Cesare, two men in their early twenties, share their lives in a world of excess: night clubs, fast cars, and dealing drugs. But as close as they are, their ideas about the path to success start to diverge. Vittorio sees a way out of the hedonism that engulfs them, meets Linda, and, to protect himself, starts to drift away from his soul mate, for which the street remains all. The bonds of friendship are strong, but are they strong enough to maintain a brotherhood? Caligari’s crime drama...

DON'T BLINK: ROBERT FRANK

DIRECTOR: Laura Israel - UNITED STATES

“The life and work of Robert Frank—as a photographer and a filmmaker—are so intertwined that they’re one in the same, and the vast amount of territory he’s covered, from The Americans in 1958 up to the present, is intimately registered in his now formidable body of artistic gestures. From the early ’90s, Frank has made his films and videos with the brilliant editor Laura Israel, who has helped him keep things homemade and preserve the illuminating spark of first contact between camera and people/places. Don’t Blink is Israel’s like-minded portrait of her friend and collaborator, a lively rummage sale of...

DIRECTOR: Afia Nathaniel - PAKISTAN

In the mountains of northern Pakistan, ten-year-old Zainab has been promised to Tor Gul a cruel, aging tribal leader six times her age, in order to broker peace between two warring camps. On the eve of the nuptials, Zainab’s mother refuses to have her daughter meet her same fate, and the two make a harried escape, beginning an epic journey fraught with danger and both tribes hot on their trail.
