Fassbinder - To Love Without Demands

This is not just another documentary on the increasingly fundamental Rainer Werner Fassbinder. It’s a documentary that includes never-seen-before interviews with Fassbinder –meeting-interviews shot by Danish director Christian Braad Thomsen. It’s a portrait, the story of a friendship and an admiration, and a multiple approach to t...

Filmer obstinément, rencontre avec Patricio Guzmán

A portrait of the filmmaker Patricio Guzmán. The film proposes a journey through his cinema marked by the recent history of Chile.

Finding Phong

Young and troubled Le Quoc Phong lives in a village in Vietnam with one single thought: travelling to Hanoi to have a sex-change operation. In an über-redundant selfie-mode, he proves his anguish by elaborating in tears –and yet also a curious dry crying– on the horrors he is facing. The recipient of this confession as well as the...

Fires on the Plain

ōoka Shōhei, one of post-war Japanese literature’s greatest, had been called up to serve in ‘44, on the Philippines. What he describes in his 1951 masterpiece, Nobi, he knew –some of the unspeakable deeds too many soldiers committed during the final weeks of Imperial Japan (most merely to stay alive, some simply because they could...

Forastero

The Argentine coast has some characteristics that are hard to translate: tourist attractions, the everyday pace, the personality of its inhabitants and urban identity. Lucía Ferreyra’s first film, a feature based on a short, traces line after line the skeleton of one of those coastal towns: Mar del Sur. The introspective, sensitive poi...

Haze

Chico se despierta en cama de chica, feliz después de una noche de fiesta que terminó bien. Ella, que se despierta enseguida, no parece compartir ni su felicidad ni la idea de que la noche haya terminado bien. Es más: no se acuerda de nada. La incomodidad escala hasta que ella lo echa y él se va a medio vestir. ¿F...

In a film world that seems to only pay attention to technical feats and formal exaggerations, Hong’s universe continues to...

La Once

It’s much easier to talk about young people than about old people,” John Cassavetes used to say.
