In the deserted hills of an Indonesian island, Marlina, a young widow, is attacked and robbed for her cattle. To defend herself, she kills several men of the gang.

Green White Green


Green White Green


Directed by Abba Makama

Nigeria |  102 minutes  | 2016  |  PG  |  English

An official selection of last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Berlin Critics’ Week (a sidebar to the Berlin International Film Festival, run by the German Film Critics Association), and African International Film Festival (where it won Best Nigerian Film). 

Hip, modern, and bursting with creative energy . . . Richly textured, funny, and a bit cheeky, Green White Green presents a cityscape reminiscent of a Spike Lee joint, with its vivid colours and vivacious inhabitants.
— Toronto International Film Festival

SYNOPSIS

A love letter to Nigeria’s youth
— Africa is a Country

A group of young bohemian artists hang out and search for direction in their lives in the stagnant months leading up to the beginning of their university studies, in this richly textured and frequently funny look at Lagos' new generation. A story about classism and how people from different economic and cultural backgrounds think and behave, Green White Green plays with stereotypes to illustrate just how similar we are despite our diversity and prejudices.

The Untamed


The Untamed


Directed by Amat Escalante

Mexico, Denmark, France, Norway, Germany Switzerland |  100 minutes |  2016 | R  |  Spanish

Cannes prize-winning director Amat Escalante (Heli) combines family drama and social commentary with science fiction and horror in this hypnotic and utterly enthralling tale, about an unhappily married couple whose life is turned upside down when they encounter a mysterious creature that is both a source of pleasure and a force of destruction.

Hypnotic, perturbing, and utterly enthralling . . . a bold portrayal of a chauvinistic society characterized by homophobia and misogyny
— Toronto International Film Festival

SYNOPSIS

[An] artfully perverted world
— NPR
. . . the most alluringly strange movie of the year so far
— Indiewire

Young mother Alejandra is a working housewife, raising two boys with husband Angel in a small city. Their provincial lives are upset with the arrival of mysterious Veronica. Sex and love can be fragile in certain regions where strong family values, hypocrisy, homophobia, and male chauvinism exist.

Veronica convinces them that in the nearby woods, inside an isolated cabin, dwells something not of this world that could be the answer to all of their problems. Something whose force they cannot resist and with whom they must make peace or suffer its wrath.
