Third Block of Films Announced

Home / Currents / Third Block of Films Announced

We invite you to explore a brand new block of films. Although each of the six highlighted filmmakers offer a completely different cinematic experience, they all share a profound interest in the human condition. Whether by drawing from Magic Realism,  Observational Cinema, the Film Essay,  Neo-Realism or even the Horror genre, all of these filmmakers find unique ways to elevate us. Their films are shot through with imagination and reflect an impressive mastery of their craft.  We are very proud to be able to share their work with all of you!

Long Days

In the desolate landscape of the American Northeast, Carol, an alluring woman living on the fringe, carries out her quiet routine. Even as she lands an interview for a job as a waitress, she gets a call for the work she can’t refuse. In the ensuing racy encounter, her true identity is exposed.

Contra El Mar

Despite his wife’s disapproval, Hector bides his time as a deep-sea diver to provide for his family and to save for his own fishing boat. But after an accident at sea, Hector is forced to confront the deadly nature of his profession while weighing the responsibilities to his family.

La Migala

Nursing a broken heart, a main with arachnophobia buys a poisonous bird spider and sets it free in his apartment.

Eden

Cyra, a girl suffers because of a seed that got stuck inside of her body and has started to grow. Her grandfather is trying to protect her from rejection and discrimination in the town where they live taking her to a better place.

Grave Goods

What becomes of the personal effects we leave behind after our death? Grave Goods, the director’s homage to her grandmother and a sensitive reflection on mourning and remembrance, opens with this question. Through a rigorous ‘mise en scène’, the filmmaker shows objects and images belonging to the departed, while giving free rein to her own recollections. An intimate cinematographic museum of the fleeting nature of existence.
