Over several years they have focused on the residents of an old sugar cane plantation town in Florida where isolation and poverty exist alongside resilience, community, and creativity. This short film explores the local practice of rabbit hunting.

    The films of Paolo and Vittorio Taviani have been regarded as masterpieces of Italian cinema since the 1960s and their work is also familiar to visitors to the Karlovy Vary IFF. Their final joint film is inspired by the posthumous novel by well-known writer Beppe Fenoglio, who evokes the atmosphere of the last few months of the Second World War through the fate of a young intellectual fighting for the resistance in Northern Italy.

    The $3 million inheritance his father left is a sufficient reason for Charlie to kidnap his autistic brother from the institute where he lives. But by the time their journey across the United States comes to an end Charlie has gained something more valuable than money. Portraying mentally challenged Raymond, the excellent Dustin Hoffman took one of four Academy Awards conferred upon the film, which also won the Golden Bear at the Berlinale.

    Section: Made in Texas: Tribute to Austin Film Society

    Todd Rohal’s dark, comedic cinema is inspired by slapstick, vaudeville, silent-era comedies, and the bizarre and grotesque. This short, which won a major prize at the Sundance Film Festival, is about a terminally ill young man visited by a Sammy Davis Jr. impersonator.

    Section: Official Selection - Competition

    Being able to care for a gravely ill daughter is of the utmost importance to a loving father. The treatment which is to give the child a new chance at life is something the poorly paid widower simply can’t afford. The idea to start performing again with a rock band from his early days, however, sees the devout man confronting not only those around him but – above all – himself as well.

    Reflections in the Dust Reflections in the Dust
    Directed by: Luke Sullivan
    Australia, 2018, 74min.
    Section: Imagina

    Eluding easy genre categorization, the film captures two characters, an aging clown and his daughter, in their oppressive microcosm full of aggression, loathing, fear, and anger. The visually spellbinding approach relies on a daring concept that aims to continually agitate and thereby create a uniquely rich viewing experience.

    Section: Future Frames: Ten New Filmmakers To Follow

    Fading memories and tough responsibilities that require a clear head, since following one’s heart isn’t enough. These are problems that weigh down upon Amir, a recently widowed man. A perceptive film about the parallels between childhood and parenthood, and about a past we have to accept so we can fully appreciate the present.

    Directed by: Fern Silva
    USA, 2017, 9min.
    Section: Imagina

    Soothing shots of the countryside complement a picturesque image of the landscape. But something hangs in the air and change is unstoppable. The creeping specter of a horrifying future permeates the environment. The found-footage film, which can be read as a portrait of the United States before the last presidential election, excels for original work with music and imagination.

    Directed by: Isao Yukisada
    Japan, 2018, 118min.
    Section: Horizons

    A group of high-schoolers from the outskirts of Tokyo engage in seemingly insignificant disputes. But in the context of both sincere and entirely self-seeking relationships, some individuals confront existential questions for the first time.  Directed with a self-assured hand, the film offers a look at Japan’s teen generation – kids who are trying to take control of their lives without role models or any other assistance.

    After Roman Polanski and Richard Pryor, acclaimed documentarist Marina Zenovich turned her attention towards matchless comedian and respected dramatic actor Robin Williams (1951–2014). His life and career are relayed to us via never-before-seen archive footage and reminiscences from friends and colleagues, together creating an image of an endearing and wild eccentric regarded by many as the wittiest man on the planet.
