    "Best of Cannes

    (Critic’s Week Grand Prize)

    Exclusive Miami Engagement!

     THE TRIBE

    Directed by MYROSLAV SLABOSHPYTSKIY/Ukraine/2014/132mins.

    With Grigoriy Fesenko, Yana Novikova, Rosa Babiy

    Winner of multiple 2014 Cannes Film Festival Awards (including the coveted Critics’ Week Grand Prix), Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy's The Tribe is an undeniably original and intense feature debut set in the insular world of a Ukranian high school for the Deaf. The Tribe unfolds through the non-verbal acting and sign language from a cast of deaf, non-professional actors—with no need for subtitles or voice over––resulting in a unique, never-before-experienced cinematic event that engages the audience on a new sensory level. Teenage Sergey (Grigoriy Fesenko), a new student at the boarding school, realizes immediately that he must prove himself worthy to be brought under the protective wing of the school gang's leader to survive unscathed. After an indoctrination of harmless initiation pranks and rites, Sergey's new-found clique soon introduces him to their common activities of robbery, bribery and prostitution. At first assimilating seamlessly into his new role in the tribe, he finds himself compromised as he begins to fall in love with his female classmate—and one of the gang's escorts—triggering a sequence of stunningly diabolical events.

    THREE EXAMPLE 100 METACRITIC REVIEWS:

    “The impact this has on the viewer is remarkable. By about twenty minutes into the film, I found myself "hearing" dialogue as each new scene unfolded. I don't remotely pretend to understand sign language, but the performances, the direction, and the energy of the film manage to communicate clearly everything that is being felt and shared. It's amazing the way it works, and there are so many moments in the film that are remarkable not only for the drama of what we're watching, but for the almost alien quality of what we're looking at.”-HitFix

    “..this deeply compelling debut feature from director Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy utterly defies mockery with the seriousness of its subject matter and the intelligence of its execution. And it duly won awards, three in fact: the Cannes Critics’ Week Grand Prize, the Visionary Award and a Distribution Support Endowment Prize, this last especially good news, we have to think, because despite the difficulty of its themes and the unfriendliness of its comedy-gold logline, this is a film that deserves the biggest arthouse audience possible.”-The Playlist

    “But Slaboshpytskiy’s film is finally most remarkable for the way it strips its characters to their raw, ferocious essence, while still allowing them to fully retain their distinctiveness as individuals. Operating well beyond the fringes of respectable society, these young men and women may well be the pawns and agents of a cruelly exploitative system, but they still come across as thinking, feeling human beings, each one desperately trying to assert his or her own place in a ruthless ruling order. To that end, these untrained actors perform with an intense, abrasive physicality that’s almost frightening in its eloquence; dialogue has rarely seemed more superfluous, as every gesture feels charged with attitude and emotion. The purity of expression Slaboshpytskiy achieves here may well take some viewers back to the silent era, but in finding its own bold cinematic language, “The Tribe” feels like something unmistakably, radically new.”-Variety

    Best of SUNDANCE Film Festival

    (Grand Jury Prize Documentary)

    THE WOLFPACK

    Documentary directed by CRYSTAL MOZELLE/2015/84mins.

    With Bhagavan Angulo Govinda Angulo Narayana Angulo Mukunda Angulo Krisna Angulo Jagadesh Angulo Visnu Angulo Susanne Angulo Oscar Angulo

    Locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Angulo brothers learn about the outside world through the films that they watch. Nicknamed the Wolfpack, the brothers spend their childhood re-enacting their favorite films using elaborate homemade props and costumes. With no friends and living on welfare, they feed their curiosity, creativity, and imagination with film, which allows them to escape from their feelings of isolation and loneliness. Everything changes when one of the brothers escapes, and the power dynamics in the house are transformed. The Wolfpack must learn how to integrate into society without disbanding the brotherhood.

    With Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld, Nina Kunzendorf

    PHOENIX is the latest teamwork between German director Christian Petzold and actress Nina Hoss (after Barbara, Yella, Jerichow, Wolfsburg). A disfigured concentration-camp survivor (Nina Hoss), unrecognizable after facial reconstruction surgery, searches ravaged postwar Berlin for the husband (Ronald Zehrfeld) who might have betrayed her to the Nazis. (In German with English subtitles).

    “After our first three movies together, I saw something in her that was like a partisan. She didn’t want to be so beautiful. She doesn’t want to be in love. She doesn’t want to show emotions. She doesn’t want to show her body. She wants to hide herself. She doesn’t want to do advertisements. I liked what I saw on the editing table. She isn’t playing to the light. She’s going to the darkness. She’s always playing. We talked about it and reflected on it and she liked that idea.”

    Cinemascope Magazine interview with director Christian Petzold

    “Metacritic Score 100: Both A POWERFUL ALLEGORY for post-war regeneration and a rich Hitchcockian tale of mistaken identity, Phoenix once again proves that German filmmaker Christian Petzold and his favorite star, Nina Hoss, are CLEARLY ONE OF THE BEST DIRECTOR ACTOR DUOS WORKING IN MOVIES TODAY.”-Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

    “Petzold distills a familiar atmosphere to create a work veiled in vibrant, cohesive, sensitively stimulating power.”-Nicola Grozdanov, The Playlist

    “HOSS’ PORTRAYAL OF A WOMAN AT ODDS WITH HER SURROUNDING IS IN A CLASS BY ITSELF”-Eric Kohn, Indiewire

    “Because Petzold is such a gifted storyteller, with the lean, driving narrative sense of the film noir masters, he also keeps those twists and turns chugging smoothly along, building to a climax so expertly orchestrated that one imagines he started with it in mind and worked the rest of the movie backward from there.”-Scott Foundas, Variety

    “Phoenix is cool, clean, knowing, full of references to other movies—a stylish, belated film noir”-Michael Wood, ArtForum

    “After our first three movies together, I saw something in her that was like a partisan. She didn’t want to be so beautiful. She doesn’t want to be in love. She doesn’t want to show emotions. She doesn’t want to show her body. She wants to hide herself. She doesn’t want to do advertisements. I liked what I saw on the editing table. She isn’t playing to the light. She’s going to the darkness. She’s always playing. We talked about it and reflected on it and she liked that idea.”

    “Metacritic Score 100: Both A POWERFUL ALLEGORY for post-war regeneration and a rich Hitchcockian tale of mistaken identity, Phoenix once again proves that German filmmaker Christian Petzold and his favorite star, Nina Hoss, are CLEARLY ONE OF THE BEST DIRECTOR ACTOR DUOS WORKING IN MOVIES TODAY.”-Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

    “Petzold distills a familiar atmosphere to create a work veiled in vibrant, cohesive, sensitively stimulating power.”-Nicola Grozdanov, The Playlist

    “HOSS’ PORTRAYAL OF A WOMAN AT ODDS WITH HER SURROUNDING IS IN A CLASS BY ITSELF”-Eric Kohn, Indiewire

    “Because Petzold is such a gifted storyteller, with the lean, driving narrative sense of the film noir masters, he also keeps those twists and turns chugging smoothly along, building to a climax so expertly orchestrated that one imagines he started with it in mind and worked the rest of the movie backward from there.”-Scott Foundas, Variety

    “Phoenix is cool, clean, knowing, full of references to other movies—a stylish, belated film noir”-Michael Wood, ArtForum

    “Best of Venice Film Festival”

    (Golden Lion Best Film Winner!)

    Miami Premiere Engagement!

    A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH

    REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE

    (En duva satt på en gren

    och funderade på tillvaron)

    Directed by ROY ANDERSSON/Sweden/2015/101mins.

    With Holger Andersson, Nils Westblom, Viktor Gyllenberg

    Like a modern day Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, Sam and Jonathan, two traveling salesmen peddling novelty items, take us on a kaleidoscopic wandering through human destiny. It is a journey that unveils the beauty of single moments, the pettiness of others, the humor and tragedy hidden within us, life’s grandeur as well as the ultimate frailty of humanity. (In Swedish with English subtitles)

    WINNER: Venice Film Festival Best Film (Golden Lion)

    International Cinephile Society Best Film Not Released in 2014

    Official Selection:

    2015 Miami-Dade College’s Miami International Film Festival  

    "IF YOU ONLY SEE ONE MOVIE THIS SUMMER, SEE A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE. It builds to an ineffable beauty so sublime that you might have a hard time remembering what it is that other films are even trying to accomplish."-David Erlich, Time Out NY   

    "Every stroke of Roy Anderson's cinema is a wonderful sonic canvas that reveals our fragile humanity. It has a unique pace, vision and imagination without losing the beauty of the realism that surrounds it."-Alejandro González Iñárritu

    "IT’S BEAUTIFUL AND HAUNTING. Once you've seen his work you'll almost assuredly be converted to his warped-as-f*** sensibility."-David Fear, Rolling Stone

     "A+. A sort of Saturday Night Live of the soul."-Catherine Bray, HitFix

    "TRULY ASTOUNDING. Open-minded audiences will be elated. Andersson is an artist to treasure."-Nicholas Barber, BBC.com

    “After our first three movies together, I saw something in her that was like a partisan. She didn’t want to be so beautiful. She doesn’t want to be in love. She doesn’t want to show emotions. She doesn’t want to show her body. She wants to hide herself. She doesn’t want to do advertisements. I liked what I saw on the editing table. She isn’t playing to the light. She’s going to the darkness. She’s always playing. We talked about it and reflected on it and she liked that idea.”

    “Metacritic Score 100: Both A POWERFUL ALLEGORY for post-war regeneration and a rich Hitchcockian tale of mistaken identity, Phoenix once again proves that German filmmaker Christian Petzold and his favorite star, Nina Hoss, are CLEARLY ONE OF THE BEST DIRECTOR ACTOR DUOS WORKING IN MOVIES TODAY.”-Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

    “Petzold distills a familiar atmosphere to create a work veiled in vibrant, cohesive, sensitively stimulating power.”-Nicola Grozdanov, The Playlist

    “HOSS’ PORTRAYAL OF A WOMAN AT ODDS WITH HER SURROUNDING IS IN A CLASS BY ITSELF”-Eric Kohn, Indiewire

    “Because Petzold is such a gifted storyteller, with the lean, driving narrative sense of the film noir masters, he also keeps those twists and turns chugging smoothly along, building to a climax so expertly orchestrated that one imagines he started with it in mind and worked the rest of the movie backward from there.”-Scott Foundas, Variety

    TOM AT THE FARM

    Directed by XAVIER DOLAN/Canada/2014/102mins.

    With Xavier Dolan, Pierre-Yves Cardinal, Lise Roy, Caleb Landry Jones

    Xavier Dolan’s thriller made before Mommy has finally been released in the US…

    After the sudden death of his lover, Guillaume (Caleb Landry Jones), Tom (Xavier Dolan - Mommy, Heartbeats, I Killed My Mother), travels from his home in the city to a remote country farm for the funeral. Upon arriving, he’s shocked to find that Guillaume's family knows nothing about him and was expecting a woman in his place. Torn between his own grief and that of the family, Tom keeps his identity a secret but soon finds himself increasingly drawn into a twisted, sexually-charged game by Guillaume’s aggressive brother (Pierre-Yves Cardinal), who suspects the truth. Stockholm syndrome, deception, grief, and savagery pervade this psychological thriller from filmmaker Xavier Dolan.

    “After our first three movies together, I saw something in her that was like a partisan. She didn’t want to be so beautiful. She doesn’t want to be in love. She doesn’t want to show emotions. She doesn’t want to show her body. She wants to hide herself. She doesn’t want to do advertisements. I liked what I saw on the editing table. She isn’t playing to the light. She’s going to the darkness. She’s always playing. We talked about it and reflected on it and she liked that idea.”

    Cinemascope Magazine interview with director Christian Petzold

    “Metacritic Score 100: Both A POWERFUL ALLEGORY for post-war regeneration and a rich Hitchcockian tale of mistaken identity, Phoenix once again proves that German filmmaker Christian Petzold and his favorite star, Nina Hoss, are CLEARLY ONE OF THE BEST DIRECTOR ACTOR DUOS WORKING IN MOVIES TODAY.”-Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

    “Because Petzold is such a gifted storyteller, with the lean, driving narrative sense of the film noir masters, he also keeps those twists and turns chugging smoothly along, building to a climax so expertly orchestrated that one imagines he started with it in mind and worked the rest of the movie backward from there.”-Scott Foundas, Variety

    TOM AT THE FARM

    Directed by XAVIER DOLAN/Canada/2014/102mins.

    With Xavier Dolan, Pierre-Yves Cardinal, Lise Roy, Caleb Landry Jones

    Xavier Dolan’s thriller made before Mommy has finally been released in the US…

    After the sudden death of his lover, Guillaume (Caleb Landry Jones), Tom (Xavier Dolan - Mommy, Heartbeats, I Killed My Mother), travels from his home in the city to a remote country farm for the funeral. Upon arriving, he’s shocked to find that Guillaume's family knows nothing about him and was expecting a woman in his place. Torn between his own grief and that of the family, Tom keeps his identity a secret but soon finds himself increasingly drawn into a twisted, sexually-charged game by Guillaume’s aggressive brother (Pierre-Yves Cardinal), who suspects the truth. Stockholm syndrome, deception, grief, and savagery pervade this psychological thriller from filmmaker Xavier Dolan.

    Cinemascope Magazine interview with director Christian Petzold

    “Metacritic Score 100: Both A POWERFUL ALLEGORY for post-war regeneration and a rich Hitchcockian tale of mistaken identity, Phoenix once again proves that German filmmaker Christian Petzold and his favorite star, Nina Hoss, are CLEARLY ONE OF THE BEST DIRECTOR ACTOR DUOS WORKING IN MOVIES TODAY.”-Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

    “Petzold distills a familiar atmosphere to create a work veiled in vibrant, cohesive, sensitively stimulating power.”-Nicola Grozdanov, The Playlist

    “HOSS’ PORTRAYAL OF A WOMAN AT ODDS WITH HER SURROUNDING IS IN A CLASS BY ITSELF”-Eric Kohn, Indiewire

    “Because Petzold is such a gifted storyteller, with the lean, driving narrative sense of the film noir masters, he also keeps those twists and turns chugging smoothly along, building to a climax so expertly orchestrated that one imagines he started with it in mind and worked the rest of the movie backward from there.”-Scott Foundas, Variety

    “Phoenix is cool, clean, knowing, full of references to other movies—a stylish, belated film noir”-Michael Wood, ArtForum

    TOM AT THE FARM

    Directed by XAVIER DOLAN/Canada/2014/102mins.

    With Xavier Dolan, Pierre-Yves Cardinal, Lise Roy, Caleb Landry Jones

    Xavier Dolan’s thriller made before Mommy has finally been released in the US…

    After the sudden death of his lover, Guillaume (Caleb Landry Jones), Tom (Xavier Dolan - Mommy, Heartbeats, I Killed My Mother), travels from his home in the city to a remote country farm for the funeral. Upon arriving, he’s shocked to find that Guillaume's family knows nothing about him and was expecting a woman in his place. Torn between his own grief and that of the family, Tom keeps his identity a secret but soon finds himself increasingly drawn into a twisted, sexually-charged game by Guillaume’s aggressive brother (Pierre-Yves Cardinal), who suspects the truth. Stockholm syndrome, deception, grief, and savagery pervade this psychological thriller from filmmaker Xavier Dolan.

    MELANCHOLALALANDtm

    A Live Transmedia Opera directed by JOEY BARGSTEN

    Featuring libretto by THEA ZIMMER     

    It's the 21st century and time to re-invent opera but in a way that's more fun, less pretentious, and a little messed up. Made possible by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, MelanchoLalaland™ —by composer/professor Joey Bargsten—brings together live vocalists in an experimental mix with animation and video, all set to Bargsten’s electronic music score.

    With its libretto by Thea Zimmer, MelanchoLalaland’s dystopic setting lands you in the not-too-distant future where global corporations —like Melancuria, Inc.—specialize in antimelancholia drugs and drive-through Masturpods. Caught up in all the timeless existential angst is the opera’s “live” tenor, Harold Booster Krant—Melancuria’s leading aesthetic experience engineer—who’s surrounded by disgruntled employees, dissatisfied girlfriends, apathetic ancient Latin choruses, dubious deities in dreadlocks, cheesy space aliens and Melancuria’s mobs of enlightenment-challenged customers. Come join the tragifun!
