Stinking Heaven

Set in the early 90s, this extraordinary collective portrait -whose subjectivity refers to certain past community experiences in a decadent key- is a modest prodigy of narrative economy supported by some perfect editing and a formidable cast. In his fifth film, Silver makes his style invisible by camouflaging with the characters, and chooses a home...

Stories of Our Lives

Five independent fictions converge in a theme that is common to all of them: the social and legal condemnation suffered in Kenya by individuals whose sexuality doesn’t fit with the normative heterosexual model. Based on anonymous testimonies by Kenyan LGBTIQ people, and almost as a manifesto in favor of sexual freedom, Stories of Our Lives po...

Sueñan los androides

Sister film to The Future (Bafici ‘14), both share crew (the director of one produces the other, and vice versa) and, most importantly, the same aching for the present of a whole country and its inhabitants thrown down the drain.

Summer of Blood

In the first scene of Summer of Blood, Eric Sparrow rejects the engagement ring offered to him by his girlfriend, but not without humiliating her a bit first. Eric is a man in his forties who lives as if he were in his twenties, has a questionable sense of humor and definitely doesn’t know how to treat women. But, as neurosis and tartan skirt...

The last real earthquake to hit cinema was Blue Velvet.

One of the lesser known films of Murnau: It’s a men’s world, but –as often– with a femme fatale in its center; a melodrama of guilt and treason unfolds itself in flashbacks.
