LARGO VIAJE HACIA LA NOCHE

LARGO VIAJE HACIA LA NOCHE

Bi Gan follows up his knockout debut, Kaili Blues, with this noir-tinged stunner about a lost soul (Jue Huang) on a quest to find a missing woman from his past (Wei Tang, Lust, Caution). Following leads across Guizhou province, he crosses paths with a series of colorful characters, among them a prickly hairdresser played by Taiwanese superstar Sylvia Chang. When the search leads him to a dingy movie theater, the film launches into an hour-long, gravity-defying 3D sequence shot that plunges its protagonist—and us—into a labyrinthine cityscape. China’s biggest arthouse hit of all time, the film took in more than $40 million dollars in its opening weekend at the domestic box office.

ASAKO I & II

Ryûsuke Hamaguchi

The winner of the public prize at D'A 2016 released his latest film at the official section of Cannes with this story of youthful love that is becoming increasingly obscure and disturbing.

BELMONTE

Federico Veiroj

The most refined film of the Uruguayan director, endowed with a strange and hallucinated humor, capable of being misanthropic and at the same time humanist. A film about masculinities in crisis with a great authorial duel.

ELS DIES QUE VINDRAN

Carlos Marqués-Marcet
