    Directed by: Jon Nguyen, Rick Barnes, Olivia Neergaard-Holm
    USA / Denmark, 2016, 93min.
    Section: Out of the Past

    David Lynch – perhaps everyone knows the director, but can they say the same about David Lynch the painter, sculptor, and musician? And can these roles be somehow separated? Just this once the standard bearer of postmodern cinematography leaves the door closed on his bizarre fictional worlds, admitting us instead to his own private realm, which he introduces through personal memories dedicated to his youngest daughter.

    Section: Horizons

    Areum is looking forward to her first day of work at a small publishing house, unaware that she’s replacing the boss’s lover who recently left him. She is therefore caught off-guard when the boss’s wife causes a scene in the belief that Areum was to be the recipient of a love letter the wife found in her husband’s correspondence. A low-key black-and-white drama of love, separation, and jealousy.

    It’s 1992. Young Dina lives in a remote mountain village where life is strictly governed by centuries of tradition. Is it possible to defy the firmly established order? And, if it is, what price must a person pay for doing so? Debut director Mariam Khatchvani set her first film in Svaneti, the stark mountainous region in northwestern Georgia where she herself was born, and she presents us with an authentic portrayal of a number of customs and traditions associated with this province.

    Five years after winning the Nobel prize, novelist Daniel Mantovani (Oscar Martínez) gets an invitation to receive an award from his hometown.

    Don Gio Don Gio
    Directed by: Michal Caban, Šimon Caban
    Czechoslovakia, 1992, 90min.
    Section: Out of the Past

    The characters in this unconventional musical horror flick by the Caban brothers find themselves reflecting upon what truly defines art. Their personal stories, however, also spill over into the narrative of Mozart’s famous opera Don Giovanni. This unclassifiable cinematic form, influenced by a video-clip aesthetic, was one of the most remarkable audiovisual projects to come out of the nineties.

    Beautiful but unhinged Chloé falls for her psychotherapist, but complications arise when the young woman discovers that her lover has concealed the existence of a twin brother. This psychological thriller from François Ozon, with its highly provocative references to films treating psychoanalytical issues, grabs our attention through its clever use of the duplication principle.

    A maid named Osen prostitutes herself to support messenger Sokichi’s education.
