New Directors/New Films

Cinética has started publishing a series of articles in English about some of the films we saw at this year’s New Directors/New Films. The festival just wrapped yesterday, but as usual we’re taking our time (hopefully not too much time) to avoid the pitfalls of quick responses and allow for slightly deeper dives into the films.

As of now, Elie Aufseesser has written about Omer Fast’s Remainder and Zhang Hanyi’s Life After LifeI’ve contributed a piece on Babak Anvari’s Under the Shadow. More is to come, including articles about the two Brazilian films in this year’s roster: Anita Rocha da Silveira’s Kill Me Please and Gabriel Mascaro’s Neon Bull. 

The articles will then be translated to Portuguese and republished in the next issue of Cinética, coming soon.
