Films in ‘Bright Future Premieres’
CosmodramaPhilippe Fernandez IFFR 2015 105′
Maybe the 1960s, maybe the future. Seven astronauts wake up in a spaceship, not knowing where they have come from nor where they are heading. As the ship operates by itself, they have ample time to meditate, rather scientifically, on matter, life and the universe.
SolosJoanna Lombardi IFFR 2015 92′
Four young people travel with a mobile cinema and flopped art-house film to remote villages in the jungles of Peru. Charming reflection on cinema, life, friendship and loneliness; beautifully shot by the brilliant Chilean Inti Briones. The world premiere of the second film by the maker of the successful Casadentro (2012).
The BullLarissa Figueiredo IFFR 2015 78′
There’s a myth that suggests the ghost of the 16th-century Portuguese king Don Sebastiaan founded a magical kingdom on the island of Lençóis off the Brazilian coast after his defeat against the Moors. Five centuries later, a young Portuguese woman (and a small film crew) arrives there. The island is still enchanting.
CrumbsMiguel Llansó IFFR 2015 68′
A post-apocalyptic, Surrealist science-fiction romance from Ethiopia is not something you come across every day. The Spaniard Llansó who lives in Addis Ababa embroiders on his fascinating short film Chigger Ale and again finds Daniel Tadesse willing to play the lead.
