Les ogresLéa Fehner IFFR 2016 144′
There's drama aplenty for the travelling theatre company Chekhov Cabaret. The actors share the good times and the bad as a nomadic tribe where work and private life always mingle. They don’t mince words, these obstreperous actors with a sardonic sense of humour. Theatre always comes first.
Chaotic Love PoemsGarin Nugroho IFFR 2016 90′
A cheerful yet serious Indonesian Romeo and Juliet. A boy and a girl from the same district, but with difficult childhoods and other reasons not to acknowledge their love. Through the colourful and musical retro style - the 1970s came late to Indonesia - shines a chaotic political and social era.
Paths of the SoulIFFR 2016 117′
Nyima and his uncle Yang think it’s time for a pilgrimage to Lhasa. On the 2000-kilometre-long road, they throw themselves to the ground every few metres, meanwhile cheerfully braving trucks, earthquakes and the elements. One of the most gripping and thought-provoking pilgrimages in the history of film.
Love & FriendshipWhit Stillman IFFR 2016 94′
Cheerful, effervescent Jane Austen film - and this time not an Austen that has been filmed countless times. A free adaptation of Lady Susan, a novella about a pretty widow who shakes up the lives of everyone around her in a villainous way. Fresh acting, spirited writing. Nominated for the VPRO Big Screen Award.
