Bernie 2016: A documentary about hope, deception and loss.
To paraphrase Joris Ivens in discussion with Chris Marker: One can never stop at the surface, no matter how attractive its form may be, because the way a current looks does not say anything about the river's nature...
Fûkei means landscape in Japanese. Fûkeiron is a proposition: turn the camera 180 degrees to film not the subject of the film, but rather the landscapes that he has seen. Film the clinic where the subject was born in the Parisian suburb of Vitry, the buildings he grew up in, his high school and workplaces...
Documentary made by three brothers on a surf trip on one of the coldest islands on earth: Bear Island. They cross country ski in a white, barren landscape. Each has a sled in tow with a surfboard perched on top. The snow whips them as they set up camp in preparation for the day ahead...
Few films are as perceptive about the routine gestures that amass over a lifetime spent together as Manu Gerosa’s Between Sisters. Ornella and Teresa have cared for each other through their whole lives. As Teresa's memory beginning to fade with age, Ornella — the younger of the two — decides to share a painful story practically as old as their relationship, reaching back to childhood.
