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.

Oct. 4-5
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An inspired and beautifully assured tragicomedy about the owner of a small, outdated sock factory, his loyal, humble assistant, and his successful younger brother.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.

Fuse (Gori vatra)

Today and Tomorrow (Hoy y manana)
