TALK WITH THE DIRECTORS AFTER THE PROJECTION
ALL LIGHT, EVERYWHERE
USA // 2021 // 105 min // VOSE
The new feature length by Theo Anthony. A unique reflection on the human gaze, based on material from police cameras, video surveillance, and his own work tool (his eyes, his camera). An incomparable study of the act of looking, a terrifying approach of connections between disparate subjects and ideas, which brings us closer to the limits of the filmic device, and even our interpretation in the face of reality. Who is watching whom?
THE FIRST WOMAN
Spain // 2021 // 76 min
Eva is discharged after six years in a psychiatric hospital. It is the first step towards the normal life that she longs for but, above all, Eva has a dream: to meet her son again and ask him for forgiveness, after fifteen years of silence.
Tremendous redemption film, with one of those stories that make documentary cinema tremble and capture the heart of those who see it.
TAMING THE GARDEN
Georgia // 2021 // 92 min
A powerful man, former Prime Minister of Georgia, has developed an exquisite hobby. He collects ancient trees along the coast of his country. He instructs his men to pluck them up and take them to his private garden. Some of these ancient trees are up to 15 stories tall. Cutting other trees, moving electrical cables, and paving new paths through orchards.
In short, the madness of power.
FROM THE WILD SEA
Denmark // 2021 // 78 min // VOSE // National Premiere
Powerful documentary focused on the complex collision between humans and the marine world. Drawn on a murky but fascinating journey in the Anthropocene era, seen from both points of view.
FRIENDS & STRANGERS
New Zealand // 2021 // 84 min // VOSE
A twenty-something Australian couple, Ray and Alice, have almost everything in life. And maybe that's the problem. It seems that no aspect of your day to day is intense. With all your ambitions buried, the only thing left is the indefinite remains of something. And that something is a film that recalls the most uncomfortable and comical Eric Rohmer.
