    (Winner: Golden Bear/Best Film)

    Miami Premiere Engagement!

    CHILD’S POSE

    Directed by CALIN PETER NETZER/Romania/2013/1hr, 52mins.

    With Luminita Gheorghiu

     

    The top prize winner at the Berlin Film Festival, Calin Peter Netzer’s sharply crafted Child’s Pose pivots on a riveting performance by Luminita Gheorghiu as a steely, well-to-do Bucharest architect determined to keep her 30-something deadbeat son out of jail after a deadly car crash. How far will she go to convince the police, eyewitnesses and even the victim’s family that her son was not recklessly speeding? A spellbinding drama of social commentary and psychological realism, this caustic look into the corrupt heart of the Eastern European bourgeoisie twists into a brilliantly ambiguous study of obsessive motherly love.

    HIDE YOUR SMILING FACES

    Directed by DANIEL PATRICK CARBONE/2013/81mins.

    With Ryan Jones and Nathan Varnson

     

     

    An atmospheric exploration of life and death in rural America, as seen through the distorted lens of youth, Hide Your Smiling Faces vividly depicts the young lives of two brothers as they abruptly come of age through the experience of a friend’s mysterious death. The event ripples under the surface of their town, unsettling the brothers and their friends in a way that they can’t fully understand. Once familiar interactions begin to take on a macabre tone in light of the tragic accident, leading Eric and Tommy to retreat into their wild surroundings. As the two brothers vocally face the questions they have about mortality, they simultaneously hold their own silent debates within their minds that build into seemingly insurmountable moral peaks. Hide Your Smiling Faces is a true, headlong glimpse into the raw spirit of youth, as well as the calluses that one often develops as a result of an unfiltered past.

    "CARBONE’S EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE DEBUT ANNOUNCES THE ARRIVAL OF A NEW CINEMATIC TALENT…If a film feels like a journey with velocity, despite a lack of action/reaction plot devices, then it has succeeded as cinema. Few directors understand this; even fewer can achieve it. The lyrical approach of Malick and Carlos Reygadas, resistant to plot and dialogue, favoring nature as a character, is a style that is in pursuit of truths that are beyond the grasp of literature. It takes guts, talent and vision to walk into those woods. Hide Your Smiling Faces makes its way through, scratched, shirt torn but hungry, and ready for another adventure.

    NYMPHOMANIAC: Volume II

    Directed by LARS VON TRIER/Denmark/2013/122mins.

    With Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgård, Shia LeBeouf,

    Stacy Martin, Christian Slater, Jamie Bell, Uma Thurman,

    Willem Dafoe, Jean-Marc Barr, Mia Goth, Udo Kier

     

     

     

     

    NYMPHOMANIAC is the wild and poetic story of a woman’s journey from birth to the age of 50 as told by the main character, the self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg). On a cold winter’s evening the old, charming bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), finds Joe beaten up in an alley. He brings her home to his flat where he cares for her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe over the next 8 chapters recounts the lushy branched-out and multifaceted story of her life, rich in associations and interjecting incidents.

     

    (In English. WARNING: Explicit. For Adults Only)

     

    *This closing screening of NYMPHOMANIAC Volume II will feature a moving multi performer erotic poetry intro inspired by nymphomania as part of the O, Miami Lit Crawl.

     

    (Lit Crawl, 6:45p to 7p, film starts just after 7p)

     

    Jonathan Rose, immigration attorney, President of Culture in the City, and Cultural Correspondent for arts calendar, Cultural Bulletin, has hosted the Famous Last Friday Open Mic Poetry Readings at Books and Books since 1992.  The readings began when Books and Books opened in the Fall of 1982, and is one of the 50 longest regular readings in the

    United States . Poets from Jonathan's group, as well as Cinematheque theatergoers (selected at random to be readers or audience members) will march around those seated (who draw "audience" coded letters).  Poems will be of an erotic or sexual nature in keeping with the theme of the film.  

     

    WINNER:

    Best Actress Charlotte Gainsbourg Danish Academy Awards

    “NYMPHOMANIAC IS INDEED A MAJOR WORK that tries and, to a large extent, succeeds to organically synthesize the world, ideas and filmmaking savvy of von Trier in one sprawling and ambitious cinematic fable”-Boyd van Hoeij, IndieWire.

    “Racy subject aside, the film provides a good-humored yet serious-minded look at sexual self-liberation, thick with references to art, music, religion and literature”-Peter Debruge, Variety

     

    “LARS VON TRIER'S NYMPHOMANIAC BLUDGEONS THE BODY AND TENDERISES THE SOUL. It is perplexing, preposterous and UTTERLY FASCINATING"-Xan Brooks, The Guardian

    “There’s plenty of flesh (much of it belonging to porn doubles), although the film is rarely, if ever, what most people would call erotic or pornographic. It’s neither deeply serious nor totally insincere; hovering somewhere between the two, IT CREATES ITS OWN MESMERIZING POWER”-Dave Calhoun, Time Out London

How far will she go to convince the police, eyewitnesses and even the victim’s family that her son was not recklessly speeding? A spellbinding drama of social commentary and psychological realism, this caustic look into the corrupt heart of the Eastern European bourgeoisie twists into a brilliantly ambiguous study of obsessive motherly love.

    With Ryan Jones and Nathan Varnson

     

    Tonight’s screening with be introduced by Director Daniel Patrick Carbone

     

     

    An atmospheric exploration of life and death in rural America, as seen through the distorted lens of youth, Hide Your Smiling Faces vividly depicts the young lives of two brothers as they abruptly come of age through the experience of a friend’s mysterious death. The event ripples under the surface of their town, unsettling the brothers and their friends in a way that they can’t fully understand. Once familiar interactions begin to take on a macabre tone in light of the tragic accident, leading Eric and Tommy to retreat into their wild surroundings. As the two brothers vocally face the questions they have about mortality, they simultaneously hold their own silent debates within their minds that build into seemingly insurmountable moral peaks. Hide Your Smiling Faces is a true, headlong glimpse into the raw spirit of youth, as well as the calluses that one often develops as a result of an unfiltered past.

    "CARBONE’S EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE DEBUT ANNOUNCES THE ARRIVAL OF A NEW CINEMATIC TALENT…If a film feels like a journey with velocity, despite a lack of action/reaction plot devices, then it has succeeded as cinema. Few directors understand this; even fewer can achieve it. The lyrical approach of Malick and Carlos Reygadas, resistant to plot and dialogue, favoring nature as a character, is a style that is in pursuit of truths that are beyond the grasp of literature. It takes guts, talent and vision to walk into those woods. Hide Your Smiling Faces makes its way through, scratched, shirt torn but hungry, and ready for another adventure.

    The art film experience from Godfrey Reggio and Steven Soderbergh!

    VISITORS

     

    Documentary directed by GODFREY REGGIO/2014/87mins.

    Presented by Steven Soderbergh

    Music by Phillip Glass and Jon Kane

     

     

     

     

    “Beauty is a provocation and my particular provocation is that I want to show the beauty of the beast”-Godfrey Reggio

     

    Thirty years after Koyaanisqatsi, Godfrey Reggio–with the support of Philip Glass and Jon Kane–once again leapfrogs over earth-bound filmmakers and creates another stunning, wordless portrait of modern life. Presented by Steven Soderbergh, VISITORS reveals humanity’s trancelike relationship with technology, which, when commandeered by extreme emotional states, produces massive effects far beyond the human species. The film is visceral, offering the audience an experience beyond information about the moment in which we live. Comprised of only seventy-four shots, VISITORS takes viewers on a journey to the moon and back to confront them with themselves.

     

    “MEZMERIZING AS SPECTACLE…It took Godfrey Reggio eight years to envision and create “Visitors,” his first new film since the completion of his widely influential “Qatsi Trilogy” in 2002…By meticulous design, the meaning of the new film is left to each individual who takes in its 87 minutes...”-Steve Dollar, The Washington Post

    BLUE RUIN

     

    Directed by JEREMY SAULNIER/2014/90mins.

    With Macon Blair, Devin Ratray, Amy Hargreaves, Eve Plumb

    Award winning director and cinematographer Jeremy Saulnier (I Used to Be Darker, Putty Hill) finds a narrative thriller voice with his new film that has been a sensation on the festival circuit. Dwight Evans is a mysterious outsider whose quiet life on the margins is turned upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Proving himself an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family. BLUE RUIN is a classic American revenge story that won the FIPRESCI Prize in the Directors' Fortnight program at Cannes 2013.

    “IT’S EASILY THE MOST SUSPENSEFUL AMERICAN FILM OF THE YEAR, a thriller that feels like lightning across a quiet night sky; SUDDEN, TERRIFYING, AND EXCITINGLY SINGULAR.”-Gabe Toro, IndieWire The Playlist 

    “A FERAL AND STAGGERINGLY WELL CONCEIVED REVENGE SAGA…Of course, perhaps Saulnier’s greatest asset is his lead actor – Macon Blair was faced with the unenviable task of making Dwight at once both childlike and savagely capable, a feat made all the more demanding by how the narrative requires him to resist caricature at every turn.

    -David Ehrlich, Film.com

     

    “A LEAN AND SUSPENSFUL GENRE PIECE.. Saulnier cleverly establishes a man-on-the-run theme in his opening shot, before the action proper has even started”-Justin Chang, Variety

    “IT’S EASILY THE MOST SUSPENSEFUL AMERICAN FILM OF THE YEAR, a thriller that feels like lightning across a quiet night sky; SUDDEN, TERRIFYING, AND EXCITINGLY SINGULAR.”-Gabe Toro, IndieWire The Playlist 

    “A FERAL AND STAGGERINGLY WELL CONCEIVED REVENGE SAGA…Of course, perhaps Saulnier’s greatest asset is his lead actor – Macon Blair was faced with the unenviable task of making Dwight at once both childlike and savagely capable, a feat made all the more demanding by how the narrative requires him to resist caricature at every turn.

    UNDER THE SKIN

    Directed by JONATHAN GLAZER/2014/107mins.

    With Scarlett Johansson

     

     

    From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (Birth) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial undefined or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Based on the novel by Michel Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), UNDER THE SKIN examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.

    UNDER THE SKIN

    Directed by JONATHAN GLAZER/2014/107mins.

    With Scarlett Johansson

     

     

    From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (Birth) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial undefined or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Based on the novel by Michel Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), UNDER THE SKIN examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.

    Who is Vivian Maier? Now considered one of the 20th century's greatest street photographers, Vivian Maier was a mysterious nanny who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that went unseen during her lifetime. Since buying her work by chance at auction, amateur historian John Maloof has crusaded to put this prolific photographer in the history books. Maier's strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never-before-seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.

    UNDER THE SKIN

    Directed by JONATHAN GLAZER/2014/107mins.

    With Scarlett Johansson

     

     

    From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (Birth) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial undefined or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Based on the novel by Michel Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), UNDER THE SKIN examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.

    With Armando Espitia, Andrea Vergara, Linda Gonzalez

     

     

     

    From the very first images, Heli exposes with brutal realism the undercurrent of modern Mexico's most prevalent continuing problem, the war on drug trafficking. A young girl, herself involved in the necessary occupation of drug trafficker, falls in love for the first time with a police cadet who is also struggling to survive amidst the chaos of the predicament which has defined a nation.
