Representing Denmark at the 2021 Oscars

ANOTHER ROUND is a fun, moving, life-affirming and thought-provoking drama about friendship, freedom, love – and alcohol.   Starring Mads Mikkelsen, directed and written by Thomas Vinterberg and co-writer Tobias Lindholm (the director and writers of THE HUNT).
 


THE WEASELS' TALE

IF YOU ARE SEEKING A DELIGHTFUL, FUN FILM, THIS IS A MUST!

Audience Awards at AFI Latin American and Chicago Latino Film Festivals

 

From Argentine director Juan José Campanella (director of the Oscar Award-winning The Secret in Their Eyes), comes THE WEASELS’ TALE, a witty comedic thriller.   It’s Sunset Boulevard meets The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with a Latin twist.   Financial gain, seduction, betrayal, and memories run amok are the elements that create the recipe for this delightful game of cat…and weasel.
 

“An ageing starlet of cinema’s golden age is targeted by a pair of opportunistic property developers in Juan José Campanella’s riotously entertaining caper, a loving evocation of Sunset Boulevard and classic Ealing comedies.” – James Marsh, South China Morning Post

“Schemers meet their match in THE WEASELS’ TALE, Juan José Campanella’s crowd-pleasing Argentine comedy.” – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WATCH BY SAT. DEC. 12, PLEASE JOIN A FREE LIVE STREAM Q&A WITH DIRECTOR JUAN JOSE CAMPANELLA AND AWARD WINING ACTRESS GRACIELA BORGES ON SUNDAY DEC. 13, 2 P.M. PACIFIC TIME. Registration is required in advance at: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_EhkRS8HKSyqvFz5HcgUr9A

 

YALDA, A NIGHT FOR FORGIVENESS

An astounding drama from Iran, directed by Massoud Bakhshi.   It is inspired by an actual long running, popular live reality tv show that puts at stake matters of life and death according to Iranian law of retaliation.
 

Winner Grand Jury Prize, World Cinema, Sundance Film Festival
 

“The way religious law penetrates every aspect of Iranian life, from a murder case to how a TV show is run, is probably the most striking aspect of YALDA, A NIGHT FOR FORGIVENESS.   The perverse logic of temporary marriage, inheritance laws favoring boys and homicide laws stacked against wives, not to mention the practice of paying one’s way out of a hanging with “blood money” to the victim’s relatives, become casual plot elements in this well-shot, cleverly scripted melodrama.” – Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
 

“Bakhshi’s sure-handed assessment of Iran’s class struggle, a thoughtfully-parsed topic with universal implications, is the film’s most fascinating dimension.” – Tomris Laffly, Variety
