THE FACE OF LOVE

USA | Director: Arie Posin

Related Links: Director’s Website

Annette Bening, Ed Harris, Robin Williams and Amy Brenneman are equally excellent in Arie Posin’s intriguing, emotionally complex drama. Five years after the death of her husband Garrett (Harris), Nikki (Bening) finds herself falling for a man (Harris again) who is the spitting image—physically and emotionally—of her dead spouse…

Canadian Premiere

Classification: PG - Violence

Fri. Oct 11, 6:00 pm, Rio

GOLD

Germany | Director: Thomas Arslan

North American Premiere

Fri. Oct 11, 6:45 pm, Centre for Arts

Making glorious use of both its BC locations and luminous lead Nina Hoss (Barbara), Thomas Arslan’s revisionist Western follows a band of German immigrants traversing the wilds on the Klondike Gold Rush trail of the 1890s. Betrayal, romance, the unforgiving wilderness and Arslan’s cool style make this a unique filmic odyssey.

Related Links: Review 1 | Review 2 | Review 3

Fri. Oct 11, 6:45 pm, SFU-GCA

In this piercing masterpiece, Rithy Panh grapples with the horrors Cambodia faced under the Khmer Rouge. "A series of painstakingly crafted dioramas… at once extremely fragile and necessarily distanced… A dam constructed to control the flow of an ocean of sorrow."—Film Comment.
Winner, Best Film, Un Certain Regard, Cannes 2013.

Stray Dogs

STRAY DOGS

(Jiaoyou)

Taiwan/France | Director: Tsai Ming-liang

Related Links: Trailer

Fri. Oct 11, 8:30 pm, Rio

Tsai Ming-liang’s first feature in four years is a masterpiece: a blackly funny and unexpectedly warm comic tale of a father—Tsai’s usual brilliant actor Lee Kang-sheng—and two children adrift amongst the urban decay of Taipei. Part Buster Keaton, part rigorous art film, always enthralling.

Antisocial

Fri. Oct 11, 11:30 pm, Rio

 

 

ANTISOCIAL

Canada | Director: Cody Calahan

Related Links: Review | Trailer

Something sinister just went viral, coursing through social networks and sparking an apocalyptic outbreak. As five university students try to make sense of the chaos, Cody Calahan’s thriller offers an "intelligent and nicely claustrophobic spin on the killer virus/zombie film… Impressively designed and staged… [it] keeps on developing its structure and concept…"—Screen
