Lili’s Apron (El delental de Lili)
Sept. 30, Oct. 1
Ramon and Lili’s married life is dramatically affected
by Argentina’s sudden economic crisis. When Ramon is
laid off, he devises a desperate plan to make money but hides
its implications from Lili. Filmmaker Galperin approaches this
serious tale with humor and charm, balancing the story on the
edge of very dark satire.
Filmed on a shoestring budget in provincial Xi’an, this
deceptively simple first feature concerns a young unemployed
man who finds his life improving when, innocently at first,
he starts wearing a policeman’s uniform. Shot on video,
Diao’s slice of life is filled with sly humor, subtle
metaphors, and the confident, gritty look of realism.
Magic lends a hand in this feature about a young man’s
troubled relationship with his native village in Mali. When
the holy well of the ancestors is contaminated, Hamalla, newly
versed in modern technology, returns from exile. Kouyate’s
poetic vision cleverly bridges the film’s themes of technology
and the power of traditional ways.
Buffalo Boy (Muoa len trau)
Set in southern Vietnam, this powerful coming-of-age tale is
a richly textured reflection on the rhythms of daily life.
The flooded landscape serves as backdrop for the mythic story
of a relationship between a father and son, the cycles of life,
and the inescapable flow of all things.
An inspired and beautifully assured tragicomedy about the owner
of a small, outdated sock factory, his loyal, humble assistant,
and his successful younger brother. The three take a seaside
trip in which farce, jealousy, and betrayal lead them to
places of no return.
As Follows (El Siguiente)
An adolescent boy gets ready to celebrate his Bar Mitzvah.
Daughter of Keltoum (Bent Keltoum)
Young Rallia, raised in Switzerland, travels to an isolated
and barren Berber settlement in the Atlas Mountains of Algeria.
Her desperate search for her biological mother leads her
on a journey of discovery of her extended family and traditional
Fuse (Gori vatra)
This brilliantly controlled debut is an unflinchingly honest
and darkly funny depiction of a community struggling to hide
its unlawful activities and unhappy alliances while attempting
to establish some sort of democracy two years after the war
has ended and right before former U.S. President Clinton arrives
for a visit.
Today and Tomorrow (Hoy y manana)
The unavoidable downward spiral of Argentina’s middle
class during the current economic crisis is vividly brought
to life by the adventures of young, street-smart Paola. She
becomes increasingly disillusioned and desperate, leading her
to the darker corners of Buenos Aires’s nightlife.
Hollow City (Na cidade vazia)
In the aftermath of the Angolan revolution, N’dala,
orphaned at age eleven, arrives in Luanda and begins his journey
alone in the unfamiliar and unwelcoming city. He meets Ze and
his friends, who drift among the Luanda homeless, and is drawn
into their existence of survival.
What’s a Human Anyway?
(Insan nedir ki?)
Set in an urban apartment building where neighbors, friends,
and family live in close quarters, this film focuses on three
male protagonists. Director Reha Erdem lends a light touch
to the film’s narrative twists while also creating a
slightly nutty, circus-like environment. The filmmaker also
explores more serious themes, depicting the three phases of
manhood in patriarchal Turkish society.
