Una noche

Mired in the nervous desperation of Havana, Raul dreams of escaping to Miami. When accused of assault, his only option is to flee Cuba. He begs his best friend, Elio, to abandon everything and help him reach the forbidden world 90 miles across the ocean. Elio’s commitment is tested when he is torn between protecting his twin sister and his own desire to get out. Brimming with the nervous energy of Havana’s restless youth and the evocative cinematography of the sun-bleached capital, UNA NOCHE follows one sweltering day, full of hope and fraught with tension, that burns to a shocking climax.

Au loin des villages

En avril 2006, 13 000 personnes de l’ethnie Dajo se réfugient dans la plaine de Gouroukoun, à l’Est du Tchad. Tous sont des survivants de la guerre du Darfour. Ils y construisent un camp, s’y enferment et s’y inventent une survie. L'auteur s’est enfermé à son tour dans cette prison sans mur. Des images patientes racontent l’interminable temps de l’attente. Une vie au ralenti qui s’égrène, comme suspendue dans le dénuement. Des réfugiés prennent longuement la parole, des enfants dessinent des batailles, des petites filles fredonnent des chansons guerrières : un film de guerre, sans aucune image de guerre. More

Madrigal

MADRIGAL is dedicated to René Clair. Why? In 1955, this French director made LES GRANDES MANOEUVRES (SUMMER MANOEUVRES), in which Gérard Philipe plays a young officer who accepts a bet that he can win the heart of Michèle Morgan, who plays the most beautiful and mysterious woman in town. Something that begins as a game for this rakish charmer, soon develops into a full-blown passion on both sides that ends dramatically as soon as the woman learns of the deception. Now genuinely in love with her, Gérard Philipe begs her forgiveness. More

"I dream exactly what I live every day," a professor, bored with her mundane life, tells her therapist. But the visual evidence on screen at the start of "Madagascar" suggests that dreams are never that banal. Bicyclists crowd the street, riding to work in slow motion in a haunting, shadowy blue dawn. The 50-minute "Madagascar" has the resonance and eloquence of the best poetry, as it deftly turns an adolescent's search for identity into a metaphor for post-revolutionary Cuba. More
