IFFR Unleashed: new titles in September

Every month, at least ten films are added to streaming platform IFFR Unleashed – from short to mid-length to feature-length films. This month, there’s 31!

The selection contains two titles by Dominga Sotomayor, the Chilean filmmaker who won the Leopard for Best Direction at the most recent Locarno Film Festival with her new film Tarde para morir joven (which was supported by the Hubert Bals Fund). You can now watch two of her earlier works on IFFR Unleashed to get to know her better: the short film La isla (winner of the Tiger Short Award in 2013) and the melancholic roadmovie De jueves a domingo (winner of a Tiger Award at IFFR 2012). Both films subtly show emerging tensions within families.

Other remarkable new additions are for instance:

SERGEI/SIR GAY

Mark Rappaport, 2017, France, USA, 36'

The video essay SERGEI/SIR GAY by Mark Rappaport, in which the filmmaker highlights the homosexual references in the work of Sergei Eisenstein;

Ce vieux rêve qui bouge

Alain Guiraudie, 2001, France, 50'

Ce vieux rêve qui bouge, a mid-length film about resting factory workers by Alain Guiraudie – pointed out by Jean-Luc Godard as the best work of the 2001 Cannes Film Festival;

Aim High in Creation!

Anna Broinowski, 2013, Australia, 96'

Or the revolutionary comedy Aim High in Creation! in which Australian filmmaker Anna Broinowski travels to North Korea to learn how to make a propaganda film.
