EISENSTEIN IN GUANAJUATO

DIRECTOR: Peter Greenaway - NETHERLANDS

Greenaway’s lively, provocative film follows the great Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein (Finnish actor Elmer Bäck) in his travels to the Mexican city of Guanajuato in 1931. Following the international success of Battleship Potemkin, Eisenstein goes to Mexico to shoot a new film, “Que viva México!,” having recently been spurned by Hollywood. He soon falls under Mexico’s spell and that of his guide Palomino Cañedo, and opens up to his suppressed fears as he embraces a new world of sensual pleasures and possibilities that will shape the future of his art. “An outrageously unconventional and deliriously profane biopic.” – Variety. In Spanish and English with English subtitles. (105...

EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT

DIRECTOR: Ciro Guerra - COLOMBIA

Crosscutting stories set decades apart, Guerra weaves two parallel journeys between a lone Amazonian shaman and western scientists in search of ancestral knowledge deep into the Amazon. Karamakate is the last survivor of his tribe and, despite incursions by missionaries and plunderers, becomes a guide for two scientists in search of the rare and sacred yakruna plant, first in 1909 then 1940. With stunning black and white cinematography capturing spectacular rainforest landscapes, Embrace of the Serpent serves both as a hallucinatory adventure film and a damning indictment of colonial destruction of indigenous cultures. Best Film, Mar del Plata Film Festival. (125 mins.)

Actor Brionne Davis in attendance.

EVOLUTION

DIRECTOR: Lucile HadžIhalilovic - FRANCE

After diving below the waves surrounding his coastal village, a young boy claims to have seen the body of another child trapped in the coral reef. Bizarrely, there appears to be a starfish blooming from the belly button of the corpse. Eleven years after her last feature (Innocence), Hadžihalilovic (who co-authored Enter the Void with Gaspar Noé) returns with a dark, feminist fairytale peppered with stylistic nods to David Lynch and the body horror of David Cronenberg. (81 mins.)

EYE IN THE SKY

DIRECTOR: Gavin Hood - UNITED KINGDOM

The goal of British-led Operation Cobra is the capture of Aisha Al Hady, a radicalized British citizen who has joined the Somali terrorist group Al Shabab. But their “capture” objective is changed to “kill” when the indomitable Colonel Katherine Powell (Helen Mirren), who has been tracking Al Hady for years, learns that Al Shabab is planning suicide attacks. Nevada-based drone operator Steve Watts targets Al Shabab’s Nairobi safehouse but reports back to London that a nine-year-old girl has entered the kill zone. Given the value of the target, could a civilian child be chalked up to collateral damage? A fascinating...
