  • Tue 21 Aug 11:15 Que Dios Nos Perdone Tickets
  • Que Dios Nos Perdone
    For all screenings:
    Summer, 2011: the sweltering streets of Madrid are roiling as clashes between police and members of the Indignados anti-austerity movement mount. The thousands of Catholic faithful who have descended on the city in advance of Pope Benedict XVI’s visit contribute to the tense, explosive atmosphere. When the police—embodied by odd-couple detectives Luis Velarde and Javier Alfaro (Almodóvar regular Antonio de la Torre and Roberto Álamo, Best Actor Goya award-winner for his role here, respectively)—discover first one and then a second murdered elderly woman, the knowledge that they have a serial killer on their hands sinks in, and the race is on to capture him before his exploits inflame an already tense public situation… Crackling direction from Rodrigo Sorogoyen, superb lead performances from de la Torre and Álamo, and a gritty, street-level sensibility that shows a side of Madrid rarely—if ever before—captured on screen make Que Dios Nos Perdone a bewitching and disturbing thriller in the vein of David Fincher’s Se7en.

    ‘Magnificently entertaining and lively… Sorogoyen and his superb artistic and technical crew have managed to make us tremble with their plot, understand their (complex) characters, and question whether we are as good as we think we are as human beings.’—Alfonso Rivera, Cineuropa

  • The Road to Mandalay
    For all screenings:
    The ambitious and determined Lianqing is one of millions of Burmese fleeing their homeland looking for a better life. Traveling with the aid of human traffickers by boat, motorbike and truck to Bangkok, she soon finds a job, a home and a partner: the helpful Guo, who accompanies her on the harsh journey across the border to Thailand. Without papers however, their life is very insecure: there are no well-paid jobs for illegal immigrants and there’s a good chance they'll be arrested and deported. As far as Lianqing is concerned, the final destination she dreams of is not Bangkok but Taiwan. And she will do virtually anything to make this dream come true.
    In The Road to Mandalay, Midi Z, who himself grew up in Myanmar (then still Burma) but emigrated to Taiwan at the age of sixteen, sketches a gruesome, alarming and topical portrait of his compatriots. He also tells a universal story: a tragic love story that will not leave the heart unmoved.

  • Tue 21 Aug 13:45 Klanken van Oorsprong Tickets
  • Klanken van Oorsprong
    For all screenings:
    Director Hetty Naaijkens-Retel Helmrich (Buitenkampers, Contractpensions), in her new documentary Sounds of Origin, shows the stories of several artists with an Indo-Dutch background, who, together with more than 350,000 other Indonesian Dutch, were forced to return to their original homeland, the Netherlands, between 1945 and 1962. Once in the Netherlands, Indo-Dutch bands such as The Tielman Brothers and The Crazy Rockers immediately received a lot of support from the extremely enthusiastic Dutch youth, who had a big appetite for rock ‘n’ roll music. Indo-Dutch singers and songwriters such as Sandra Reemer, Liesbeth List, and Boudewijn de Groot also caused a furore. Anneke Grönloh along with Ruud and Riem de Wolff (The Blue Diamonds) even gained international fame, as did the brothers Eddie and Alex van Halen, who emigrated to the US.

    Although all these musicians are very different, they share many things in common: their experiences of war, their flights from Indonesia, and their struggles to start over again and adjust to life in a foreign country. And then there was the music, the most important outlet for them, and the thing they shared most of all. Sounds of Origin is a powerful mosaic of stories about survival in difficult circumstances, the origins of the people portrayed, and the search for identity, all interspersed with (swinging) music and never-before-seen archival material of both musical performances and the colonial era. Naaijkens-Retel Helmrich shows in a penetrating way how Indo-Dutch musicians managed to assimilate while maintaining a hint of nostalgia, and how, without knowing it, they brought about a change in the Dutch music landscape and beyond.

  • Tue 21 Aug 14:00 Den skyldige (The Guilty) Tickets
  • Den skyldige (The Guilty)
    For all screenings:
    This taut thriller from debuting director Gustav Möller gives us a haunted ex-cop (Jakob Cedergren, onscreen throughout and masterful) with things to hide who’s been relegated to the emergency services call room. One night, he takes a call from a woman who is in the midst of being kidnapped. As he races against time to save her—while never leaving the confines of the call room—the camera stays at his side, immersing us in a tense cat-and-mouse game that will have you on the edge of your seat. Given its superbly gripping qualities, it is not a surprise that the film captured the Audience Award for most popular film at both the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and the 2018 Rotterdam International Film Festival.

    ‘Despite focusing entirely on a single individual speaking into a headset… The Guilty nevertheless emerges as a twisty crime thriller that’s every bit as pulse-pounding and involving as its action-oriented, adrenaline-soaked counterparts… Möller masterfully ratchets up tension without the benefit of the usual visual aids… [but] with chillingly effective results.”—Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter

  • Tue 21 Aug 14:15 L' Atelier Tickets
  • L' Atelier
    For all screenings:
    Both a zeitgeist snapshot of what it is to be young and facing an uncertain future in France today and a tense tale of repressed violence, Laurent Cantet’s (Palme d’Or winner The Class) brilliantly conceived drama tackles subjects like joblessness, the spate of recent terrorist attacks, religious radicalization, and the rise of the far right, but it does so using tropes found in the most crackling of thrillers. In the depressed coastal town of La Ciotat (near Marseille), a diverse group of students join a novel-writing workshop headed up by Olivia Dejazet (the superb Marina Foïs), a successful Paris-based writer of mysteries. The one thing the smart and vocal group agrees on is that the project they should work towards is a suspense novel. As the students spout their opinions, it becomes clear that one of them, Antoine (newcomer Matthieu Lucci, entrancing) is a hot-headed reactionary. Soon, Olivia’s inability to control the group and Antoine’s increasingly erratic behaviour take Cantet’s film in a gripping direction…

    “Cantet makes an enthralling return to form with this topical fusion of political debate session and socially conscious thriller… [The] screenplay… bristles with both big ideas and small-scale human insight… First-time actor Lucci—who, like the rest of the young ensemble, was enlisted through local open casting—is a frankly astounding discovery...”—Guy Lodge, Variety

  • Tue 21 Aug 16:15 The Man Who Killed Don Quixote Tickets
  • The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
    For all screenings:
    It’s been almost 30 years since iconoclastic Monty Python alumnus Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Monkeys) first tried to mount his singular adaptation of Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote, and the disasters that haunted the seemingly cursed production—floods, the loss of leading men to illness, financial collapse—have passed into world cinema legend. But maybe the wait was worth it: with Jonathan Pryce (who first worked with Gilliam on the fantastic Brazil) as the mad (or is he?) would-be knight, Gilliam has an actor who suffuses his role with all the passion, comedy, hubris, and poignancy the part calls for. The story alone is ingenious: Toby Grisoni (Adam Driver), a director of TV commercials, returns to the Spanish village where he shot his student film, Don Quixote, only to find that the old man he cast as the chivalrous Don has grown to believe that he actually is the man of La Mancha—and that Toby is the Sancho Panza he has been waiting for, lo these years. Glorious madness—the kind that only Gilliam can create—ensues…

    ‘Gilliam’s work has always teemed with contradictions and dichotomies, and in The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, he brings them to a dizzying, exhilarating high, taking failed and deluded creatures and raising them into something holy. It would have been easy for Gilliam to succumb to cynicism given the cavalcade of misfortune that has befallen the film… Instead, he’s created a film suffused with a love of art, and of those who would dare to make it.’—Karen Han, Slate

  • Tue 21 Aug 16:30 Whitney Tickets
  • Whitney
    For all screenings:
    Ace documentary filmmaker Kevin Macdonald (Touching the Void) had full access to, and cooperation from, the friends and family of the phenomenally gifted Whitney Houston, the pop superstar who was found dead in her hotel room bathtub on February 11, 2012. His complex and extraordinarily fascinating tour of Houston’s tortured life does not, however, pander to the family’s wishes—some of them have actually come out against the film in recent days—or gloss over the more damning details about her addictions and tragic relationships. Indeed, the film contains at least one bombshell revelation—no spoilers here!—that makes us re-evaluate all we think we know about Houston’s life. Featuring fantastic archival footage—she really did have an amazing voice—and interviews with The Bodyguard co-star Kevin Costner, ex-husband Bobby Brown, music mogul Clive Davis, mother Cissy Houston, and many others.
    ‘Macdonald lays out Houston’s story—the light and the darkness—in a classically etched, kinetically edited way. He makes superb use of archival footage [and] tickles us with montages of her heyday (not just Houston but the whole era — the way her songs, in hindsight, tapped into a certain free-floating ’80s jubilance)… The film captures the quality that made Whitney Houston magical, but more than that it puts together the warring sides of her soul…’—Owen Gleiberman, Variety

    For all screenings:
    (This movie is screened in an alternative room)

    We already knew that fake news gets pumped around. And also that our online behaviour determines what gets shown on everyone's timeline on social media. But that thousands of Filipino content moderators are actively deciding every day what actually gets seen on the web, so that our timelines are pleasant or at least non-violent? This fact was hidden until recently.
    Propaganda or free newscast? With hardened eyes and continually learning about sex terms and jihadist flags, this immense workforce decide on thousands of newly placed videos and pictures. In their revealing debut documentary The Cleaners, Hans Block and Moritz Riesewieck infiltrate this shadow industry.
    The internet is not as neutral and democratic as it pretends. High-placed tech experts and (ex-)cleaners speak about the need for and practice of these actions. From conversations with victims of this censorship, it seems that cleaners help steer the course of history.

  • Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami
    For all screenings:
    Eschewing traditional documentary techniques—talking-head interviews, a linear narrative, etc.—in favour of an impressionistic, up-close-and-personal approach, Sophie Fiennes (The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema) has crafted a spellbinding portrait of iconic Jamaican singer, actor, and supermodel Grace Jones. Bloodlight and Bami (‘bloodlight’ is Jamaican slang for the red light that is illuminated when a recording studio session is in progress, and ‘bami’ is the name of a Jamaican flatbread) was shot off and on over a period of more than ten years and it mixes beautifully shot concert footage with more relaxed scenes of Jones back home in Jamaica hanging out with family members. Jones was always one of the most mysterious of stars, and Fiennes’ intimate approach peels off a few layers of Jones’ artifice while leaving us with a fascinating core of mystery to ponder over.
    ‘Fiennes is… interested in visually and aurally personifying Jones’s raw, often ragged creative process. The sense is that, off stage, the Jamaican model, singer, and actress is an icon navigating perpetually muddy waters, with a different face for every occasion… The effect, finally, of Fiennes’s approach to her subject is to take us out of normal time and put us on Grace Jones time. A true star moves through life to the tick of their own clock.’—Keith Ullich, Slant
