OFFICE

DIRECTOR: Johnnie To - HONG KONG

A nimble takedown of corporate corruption and greed, Office tells its story as a witty musical extravaganza. Featuring superstars Chow Yun-Fat and Sylvia Chang, the story is set amidst the initial public offering of a billion dollar company in the wake of the global financial collapse of 2008. Poised to make millions, the company’s executives scramble to cover their scheming tracks during an audit. Johnnie To, past master of breathtakingly inventive action choreography, turns to dance and an inventive set to create his lavish spectacle, “At once sharp and exceedingly playful … a nimble political soft shoe with filmmaking dazzle.”—Manohla...

ONE FLOOR BELOW

DIRECTOR: Radu Muntean - ROMANIA

Muntean’s understated fable about morality in the modern world centers on Sandu, a middle-aged businessman, father, and upright citizen who leads a normal life. Overhearing a neighbor couple in an angry fight, he soon after encounters the man on the apartment stairs. Then the woman is found dead. Sandu suspects the man must be involved, but unsure, says nothing to the police as he wrestles with the right course of action—if there is one.

THE OTHER SIDE

DIRECTOR: Roberto Minervini - ITALY

“By turns tender and disturbing, Minervini’s powerful docu-fiction hybrid profiles people living on the fringes of society. While they essentially play themselves, he clearly intervenes to create situations rather than observe them. Following his superb Texas-based Stop the Pounding Heart [PIFF 38], Minervini moves to Louisiana, where we come face-to-face with a group of people who seem to have stepped out of Deliverance. Faces carry the lines and scars of hard living, clothes are tattered, living conditions are chaotic. Some are addicts; others are libertarian fanatics. Yet Minervini finds a compassion and tenderness behind their gruff exteriors as he peers...
