ous ne pouvez rater cette seconde représentation du boulversant Ghosts of Cité Soleil End Of The Line, en présence du réalisateur Maurice Deveraux
Here are some films not to be missed today:
The Unseeable stylish director Wisit Sasanatieng (TearsOf The Black Tiger, Citizen Dog) ventures into the horror arena with his masterful piece of mood cinema. Sasanatieng puts that still-active belief in the supernatural to great effect, loading his film with layer upon layer of hidden images, a brooding score and the sure sense that nothing is ever quite what it seems.
Ghosts of Cité Soleil this provocative documentary gives an unprecedented close-up look at the chimères (ghosts), gangs of gun-toting, doped up, nothing-to-lose thugs in Haitis ultra-violent slum Cité Soleil, designated by the United Nations as the most dangerous place in the world. A tough, shocking film, but also a hauntingly intimate and truthful one.
The King of Kong a middle-school science teacher and a hot sauce mogul vie for the Guinness World Record on the arcade classic, Donkey Kong. Very funny, and strangely touching. A breakout hit at this years Slamdance.
End of the Line a right wing Christian sect decides its time to bring forth doomsday in Montrealler Maurice Deverauxs first film made with a proper budget, and its fantastic. Has screened at A-list festivals in all corners of the world, from Toronto International to San Sebastien, and will finally be having its Montreal premiere. Director Maurice Deverauxr will be here.
After This Our Exile former Wong Kar Wai collaborator Patrick Tam makes his extraordinary return as a director after 17 years of absence. After This Our Exile has received an avalanche of awards including Best Picture at the Taiwan Golden Horse Awards and Hong Kong Film Awards. Tam has taken a tragic story and given it visual power by using ace DP Mark Lee (In the Mood for Love), setting the film mostly at dusk and dawn in Malaysia. The more emotionally enriching directors cut will be screened.
The Signal huge buzz film at Sundance this year about electronic devices emitting a strange signal that turns everyone in range into impulsive killers. An audacious experiment as a linear horror film, told in three chapters, each by a different filmmaker utilizing the same cast and picking up at the point of narrative flow where the previous chapter ends
