Cold War
by Pawel Pawlikowski

In the 1950s, a music director falls in love with a singer and tries to persuade her to flee communist Poland for France.

“Ida director Pawel Pawlikowski’s exquisitely chilling Soviet-era drama maps the dark heart of Poland itself.” – Guardian

“Cold War (a world premiere in the Cannes competition) is a glorious throwback – a film made with a verve and lyricism which rekindles memories of the glory days of European New Wave cinema.” – Independent

Sorry Angel (Plaire, aimer et courir vite)
by Christophe Honoré

Jacques is a writer living in Paris. He hasn’t turned 40 but already mistrusts that the best in life is yet to come. Arthur is a student living in Brittany. He reads and smiles a lot and refuses to think that everything in life might not be possible. Jacques and Arthur will like each other. Just like in a lovely dream. Just like in a sad story.

“Love Songs’ director Christophe Honoré delivers a deeply felt crossover drama about two gay men wrestling with incompatible ideas of love.” – Variety

Ash is Purest White (Jiang Hu Er Nv)
by Jia Zhangke

In an industrial city in China, a young dancer named Qiao falls in love with a mobster named Bin. When a fight breaks out between rival gangs, Qiao uses a gun to protect Bin and is sent to prison for five years.

“Jia Zhang-ke’s latest is an often glorious drama about how one woman’s journey from self-sacrificial moll to avenging criminal echoes her country’s embrace of capitalism.” – Guardian


The Image Book

by Jean-Luc Godard

Jean-Luc Godard provides social commentary during a montage of digitally altered, color-saturated film clips.

The Image Book is more accessible and vibrant than much of the work of the past 30 years that Godard has been reflexively praised for.” – Variety
