Alcarràs

Drama, Feature Narrative, Best of the World Fests

Like a cross between the family drama of The Godfather and the innocence of The Florida Project, Carla Simon’s sun-drenched Berlin winner shows us the collapse of a tight-knit family through the eyes of the innocent children on the periphery. As the young siblings simply try to enjoy their summer time, playing make-believe in the sun, running between rows of peach trees, they are unaware that their family may be on the verge of losing everything. Alcarràs is a warm and nostalgic film, but is filled with shades of melancholy.

EO

6:30PM – Imagine Cinemas

Experimental/Drama, Feature Narrative, Best of the World Fests

Of all the films that are releasing in 2022, we can promise you that there is not a single other film like EO. In fact, possibly not since Robert Bresson’s 1966 classic Au Hasard Balthazar has there been a film that follows a donkey as its main character. But while most films about animals focus on the relationship between the animal and the people around it, EO instead focuses on the way that its four-legged protagonist views the world. As we journey on an odyssey across Europe, the world, in all its confusing and stressful beauty, is seen through a donkey’s eyes.
