  • Runtime: 70 min.
  • Director: Alessandro Piva
  • Language: Italian
The quietly charming debut feature of long-time editor Alessandro Piva is a rare commodity in Italian cinema: a completely independent production.

A huge hit on its home turf, Leander Haussmann's comedy looks back with affection to a little corner of East Berlin in the 1970s while chronicling the coming-of-age tales of the teenagers residing there. "A kind of East Berlin Graffiti."--Variety. Haussmann was honoured in the Critics' Choice: 2000 sidebar at the Karlovy Vary festival.


ANIMAL FACTORY

  • Director: Ichikawa Kon
  • Language: Japanese
Ichikawa Kon's 74th film stars Yakusho Koji as a seemingly dissolute magistrate sent to clean up a regional hotbed of gambling, smuggling and prostitution. Co-written by Kurosawa 30 years ago, it recaptures the humour, action and panache of such films as Yojimbo and Sanjuro.


EVERYBODY FAMOUS!

In Dominique Derrudere's immensely enjoyable film, all factory worker Jean Vereecken wants is success for his daughter, Marva--but she doesn't have the voice or the body type to be a pop star.

  • Runtime: 76 min.
  • Director: Ross Weber
  • Language: English
Ross Weber's debut feature interweaves black-and-white vignettes about twentysomething Vancouverites dealing with obsession, friendship, loneliness and sex.

A fantasia that brings to mind the works of Melies, Keaton, Vigo and Jeunet and Caro, Veit Helmer's feature debut--set in a dilapidated Eastern European bathhouse and concerning the tribulations of Denis Lavant's acrobatic attendant--is a surreal and almost wordless dreamscape, awash in images of hypnotic beauty.

SHIFTER

  • Country: New Zealand
  • Runtime: 77 min.
