    SLACK BAY

    (La Moute)

    Directed by BRUNO DUMONT/France/2016/2hr, 2mins.

    With Fabrice Luchini, Juliette Binoche, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi


    Summer 1910. The bourgeois and extremely eccentric Van Peteghem family—among them Juliette Binoche, Fabrice Luchini, and Valeria Bruni Tedeschi—have settled in for another summer at their cliff-top villa overlooking the picturesque Slack Bay. Their leisurely rhythm of sunbathing and seaside constitutionals is soon interrupted by the arrival of two bumbling inspectors investigating a string of tourists gone missing (and serving full-on Keystone Kops). As the macabre mysteries mount and love blossoms between the family’s genderqueer teen and the son of a local fisherman, Binoche and company ratchet the slapstick up to eleven. It’s no wonder director Bruno Dumont (Li’l Quinquin, Camille Claudel 1915) cites Peter Sellers, Monty Python, and Laurel and Hardy as cinematic influences for his delightful foray into winking, absurdist farce.  (In French with English subtitles)

    THE STUDENT

    Directed by KIRELL SEREBRENNIKOV/Russia/2017/118mins.

    With Pyotr Skvortsov, Aleksandra Revenko, Viktoriya Isakova     


    After Venya’s mother receives a call from school reporting her son’s refusal to participate in mixed swimming lessons, she first suspects her teenager of being shy and derides his claim that it is “against his religion.” As Venya is finally exempted by the school’s devout principal, he grows confident that his strict and rigorous study of the Bible gives him the ability to manipulate all forms of authority. Challenged by a teacher who refuses to consent to his dogma, he sets out to eliminate her and subdue an entire community. At a time when arguments over the teaching of religion in public schools are prominent in the media, this wildly escalating classroom drama — based on a play by German playwright Marius von Mayenburg — serves as a frightening cautionary tale. (In Russian with English subtitles).

    DAVID LYNCH: THE ART LIFE

    Documentary by JON NGUYEN/2017/93mins.


    David Lynch: The Art Life looks at Lynch’s art, music, and early films, shining a light into the dark corners of his unique world and giving audiences a better understanding of the man and the artist. As he says, “I think every time you do something, like a painting or whatever, you go with ideas, and sometimes the past can conjure those ideas and color them. Even if they’re new ideas, the past colors them.” We’re invited in and given private views from Lynch’s compound and painting studio in the hills high above Hollywood, as he tells personal stories that unfold like scenes from his films. Strange characters come into focus only to fade again into the past, all leaving an indelible mark.

     “I was painting a painting that was mostly black, but it had some green plants and leaves coming out of the black. And I was sitting back (probably taking a smoke) and looking at it, and I heard a wind, and the green started moving. And I thought: ‘Oh—a moving painting but with sound.’ And that idea stuck in my head.”-David Lynch

    Charles Recher: Miami Ciné Dadaist

    A Mini-Film Retrospective/Perspective

    Curated and Compiled by Gustavo Matamoros and Bruce Posner

    Courtesy the Estate of Charles Recher

    Sponsors Filmmakers Showcase, Miami Beach Cinematheque,

    Obsolete Media Miami (O.M.M.), Subtropics

    “I was always being surprised by what he was doing. I guess that is an artist’s job — to surprise us and to make us think. Charles was very good at this job.”-Barbara Young


    Words can’t begin to describe an artwork by Charles Recher. His world was one of enigma tinged between fantasy and reality. He embraced film and video making with a child-like wonder that was tempered by his engagement with not only the performance aspects of cinema but with the audience’s reception of the projected image. Much of the work was made for the purpose of surprise encounters with his films-videos projected at strange locations on obscure screens. These hidden images were balanced with massive large-scale public installations and performances that directly engaged viewers no matter if one had intended to be involved or not. In between, he embraced the conventional movie theater experience such as the format of the offerings presented tonight. Sometimes phantasmagorical but always directed towards the soul, his films and videos playfully straddle a schism between two worlds – one very real and hard and of the physical world that we all share. While in the other, he is preoccupied with a fantastic mythological interior journey and the creatures encountered in his dreams.

    FILMS & VIDEOS TO BE SCREENED:

    Ballet Mechanique (1923-24, restored 2015) by Fernand Léger and Dudley Murphy with Ezra Pound and Man Ray; Music by George Antheil from original 1924-25 score Ballet pour instruments mécaniques et percussions, adapted and arranged 2000 by Paul D. Lehrman, re-mixed 2015 by Gustavo Matamoros; courtesy G. Schirmer, Inc., Estate of George Antheil, Paul D. Lehrman. 2K DPX 10bit Linear from 35mm black & white with color tints silent with new music 17 minutes.

    • Early Dadaist cinema provided Recher with a life-long fascination of the “aggressive Dada spirit” as seen in this sprightly collage of machinery, everyday objects and prismatic shapes pushed up against smiling human faces and outlandish poses. Recher, an avid moviegoer, would not veer far from the sense of play imbued in the propositions of nonsense exhibited by European avant-gardists and movie-makers during the 1920s and 30s.

    Teyibahw-Andela (1979-80, restored 2017) by Charles Recher. 2K DPX 10bit Linear from 16mm color sound 8 minutes.

    • One of Recher’s earliest films, Teyibahw shows the young artist in full control of his medium – film, performance and sound. The message of the film may be hard to define, but his engagement with the mysteries of life pushes a surreal view of the artist’s activities within the confines of a small room.

    Florida – Mariner’s Dream (1994, restored 2017) by Charles Recher. 2K DPX 10bit Linear from 16mm color silent 16 minutes.

    • Recher saw Florida as a vast playground for the imagination. Colors, shapes and forms swirl around the filmmaker as he poses the question of what quantifies one’s existence more than a swim in the ocean. From his hectic camera work combining Super 8mm film and Hi8 video to the masterly optical printing-editing techniques, Recher weaves a magical-musical going-to-sea fantasy worthy of the Coleridge moniker of the title.

    Cars & Fish (2005, preserved 2017) by Peter Melaragno from a video installation by Charles Recher and Gustavo Matamoros. MiniDV NTSC 720x488i 59.94 color sound 7 minutes.

    • The December 2, 2005 Art Basel performance by Recher (video) and Matamoros (audio) inaugurated the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts (then still under construction) with a massive array of graphic video projections splayed across the building’s facade. As one of Recher’s largest light works, the mesmerizing colors and hi-contrast black & white imagery ebb and flow in tune with the varied essence of South Florida’s natural and man-made environments captured by the artist. Peter Melarango’s short documentary relays a fragmented overview of the proceedings, not necessarily what the artists’ had intended as much as the possibilities addressed. Still the video does quantify a tangible sense of the physical scale and effect of the projections on the buildings and the audience.

    Video Prophet (2000, preserved 2017) by Charles Recher with Robin Glass. MiniDV NTSC 720x488i 59.94 black & white sound 22 minutes.

    • Recovered among Recher’s estate are numerous camera originals and working edits. This dramatic video shows the final version of the “Video Prophet” acted by Robin Glass that was replayed during the live performance on a large TV “face” set atop a 12-foot tall man who walked around and encountered people on Miami Beach. Here we see a single-screen horizontal-image as it was shot minus the edifices of the performance activity.

    ABOUT MINDIE, Miami Independent Film Festival

    Founded in 2015, Mindie - Miami Independent Film Festival is an ongoing film festival that works on two different levels: monthly competition and annual event. The monthly edition give continuity to the selection process and a steady feedback to the filmmakers. Instead of waiting for months before getting an answer from the festival, filmmakers are immediately contacted if selected. Their work is privately screened and evaluated by a jury of industry professionals. Every month, the jury selects winners from each category. The monthly winners will then compete to be screened at our annual event. The event aims to create a strong relationship between filmmakers, producers and distributors from all over the world.

    (O Omitólogo)

    Directed by JOÃO PEDRO RODRIGUES/Portugal/2017/1hr, 57mins.

    With Paul Hamy, Alexandre Alverca, Andre Freitas, Chan Suan


    Fernando, a solitary ornithologist, is looking for endangered black storks along a remote river in northern Portugal, when he is swept away by the rapids. Rescued by a couple of Chinese pilgrim girls on their way to Santiago de Compostela, he plunges into a dark, eerie forest, trying to get back on track. But as he encounters unexpected and uncanny obstacles and people who put him to the test, Fernando is driven to extreme, transformative actions. Gradually he becomes a different man: inspired, multifaceted, and finally enlightened.

    LOST IN PARIS

    (Paris pieds nus)

    Directed by DOMINIQUE ABEL/FIONA GORDON/France/2017/1hr, 23mins.

    With Fiona Gordon, Dominique Abel, Emmanuelle Riva, Pierre Richard


    Filmed in Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon's signature whimsical style, LOST IN PARIS stars the filmmakers as a small-town Canadian librarian and a strangely seductive, oddly egotistical vagabond. When Fiona's (Gordon) orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by Academy Award®-nominee Emmanuelle Riva) who is living in Paris, Fiona hops on the first plane she can and arrives only to discover that Martha has disappeared. In an avalanche of spectacular disasters, she encounters Dom (Abel), the affable, but annoying tramp who just won't leave her alone. Replete with the amazing antics and intricately choreographed slapstick that has come to define Abel and Gordon's work, LOST IN PARIS is a wondrously fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love while lost in the City of Lights. (In French and English with English subtitles).

    LOST IN PARIS

    (Paris pieds nus)

    Directed by DOMINIQUE ABEL/FIONA GORDON/France/2017/1hr, 23mins.

    With Fiona Gordon, Dominique Abel, Emmanuelle Riva, Pierre Richard


    Filmed in Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon's signature whimsical style, LOST IN PARIS stars the filmmakers as a small-town Canadian librarian and a strangely seductive, oddly egotistical vagabond. When Fiona's (Gordon) orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (delightfully portrayed by Academy Award®-nominee Emmanuelle Riva) who is living in Paris, Fiona hops on the first plane she can and arrives only to discover that Martha has disappeared. In an avalanche of spectacular disasters, she encounters Dom (Abel), the affable, but annoying tramp who just won't leave her alone. Replete with the amazing antics and intricately choreographed slapstick that has come to define Abel and Gordon's work, LOST IN PARIS is a wondrously fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love while lost in the City of Lights. (In French and English with English subtitles).

    LETTERS FROM BAGHDAD

    Documentary by Zeva Oelbaum and Sabine Krayenbuhl

    Featuring Tilda Swinton as the voice of Gertrude Bell


    Letters from Baghdad is the story of a true original—Gertrude Bell—sometimes called the “female” Lawrence of Arabia. Voiced and executive produced by Academy award winning actor Tilda Swinton, the film tells the dramatic story of this British spy, explorer and political powerhouse. Bell traveled widely in Arabia before being recruited by British military intelligence during WWI to help draw the borders of Iraq and as a result helped shape the modern Middle East. Using stunning, never-seen-before footage of the region, the film chronicles her extraordinary journey into both the uncharted Arabian desert and the inner sanctum of British colonial power. What makes the film stand apart is that the story is told entirely in the words of Gertrude Bell and her contemporaries, excerpted from their intimate letters, private diaries and official documents. It is a unique look at both a remarkable woman and the tangled history of Iraq. The film takes us into a past that is eerily current.

    ★★★★ The female Lawrence of Arabia."- BBC 

    ★★★★ Gertrude Bell gets the documentary she deserves."-The Gurdian

    ★★★★ Extraordinary!”- The Times 

    "In an age of a rebooted "Wonder Woman," [Gertrude] Bell is the real thing, intrepid, fierce and smart...her wanderings through Syria and Iraq in the early 1900s were as vital to deciphering the region as those of her more celebrated male counterpart T.E. Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia." - Jeffrey Fleishman, Los Angeles Times

    MY JOURNEY THROUGH FRENCH CINEMA

    Documentary by BERTRAND TAVERNIER/2017/France/195mins.


    Writer-director Bertrand Tavernier is truly one of the grand auteurs of the movies. His experience is vast, his knowledge is voluminous, his love is inexhaustible and his perspective is matched only by that of Martin Scorsese. This magnificent, epic documentary has been a lifetime in the making. Tavernier knows his native cinema inside and out, from the giants like Renoir, Godard, and Melville (for whom he worked as an assistant) to now overlooked and forgotten figures like Edmund T. Gréville and Guy Gilles, and his observations and reminiscences are never less than penetrating and always deeply personal. (In French with English subtitles).

    OFFICIAL SELECTION: Cannes Classics 2017

    “IT’S A LOVE LETTER STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART to the films, actors, directors, composers, writers and cinematographers who have played such a significant role in French film history”-Screen Daily

    “Tavernier was on the set of Contempt the day that producer Carlo Ponti demanded Brigitte Bardot appear nude, and he was the one who brought Samuel Fuller to the set of Pierrot Le Fou…When someone with this level of insight and a vast trove of material wants to share, I can hardly fault anyone for wanting to sit at his feet to listen. And watch.”-Jordan Hoffman, Village Voice

    Writer-director Bertrand Tavernier is truly one of the grand auteurs of the movies. His experience is vast, his knowledge is voluminous, his love is inexhaustible and his perspective is matched only by that of Martin Scorsese. This magnificent, epic documentary has been a lifetime in the making. Tavernier knows his native cinema inside and out, from the giants like Renoir, Godard, and Melville (for whom he worked as an assistant) to now overlooked and forgotten figures like Edmund T. Gréville and Guy Gilles, and his observations and reminiscences are never less than penetrating and always deeply personal. (In French with English subtitles).

    OFFICIAL SELECTION: Cannes Classics 2017

    “IT’S A LOVE LETTER STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART to the films, actors, directors, composers, writers and cinematographers who have played such a significant role in French film history”-Screen Daily

    “Tavernier was on the set of Contempt the day that producer Carlo Ponti demanded Brigitte Bardot appear nude, and he was the one who brought Samuel Fuller to the set of Pierrot Le Fou…When someone with this level of insight and a vast trove of material wants to share, I can hardly fault anyone for wanting to sit at his feet to listen. And watch.”-Jordan Hoffman, Village Voice
