Bamseom Pirates Seoul InfernoJung Yoonsuk IFFR 2017 120′
The Bamseom Pirates from Korea make music appropriate to our sick society: a hundred songs in ten minutes, that kind of thing. This at times noisy, but also sparkling, activist and often humorous documentary reports on the resistance offered by these punk musicians to hypocritical, conservative money-grabbers and their often violent hold on society.
KfcLê Bình Giang IFFR 2017 69′
A necrophilic doctor, a man wearing headphones and a bunch of cannibals are just a few of the characters in this bizarre debut by director Lê Bình Giang about the cyclical effect of violence. Be warned, this Vietnamese 'body horror' does not have a late evening slot for nothing!
HarunekoHokimoto Sora IFFR 2017 85′
Those who seek to die find refuge in a mysterious café. In this feverish musical dream that recalls Terayama Shuji, the forest is a place where life and death blur. Produced by Aoyama Shinji, this Japanese debut is full of life but tinted in darkness.
Otra madreMariano Luque IFFR 2017 77′
Delicate observations of the many facets of motherhood. Along with her four-year-old daughter, divorced Mabel returns to her mother’s house, where her younger sister and grandmother also live. A tender film by this Argentine talent demonstrates love and attachment, but also impotence. Recognisable and poignant for both mother and (adult) child.
