Free screening: Toronto 2018 special
On the occasion of the 2018 Toronto International Film Festiva (TIFF), UniFrance wishes to throw the spotlight on 4 short films made by 4 directors who are presenting their new films at the biggest North American film festival, which opens today, September 6.
The directors presenting their new films at TIFF this year:
- Discover Inupiluk, the first of three films that he focused on Greenland. Two Inuits come to Paris, where they must cope with culture shock. (with English subtitles)
- Discover Dogs, her first short, which she directed solo before As Long as Shotguns Remain (which was awarded the Golden Bear for Short Film at the 2014 Berlinale). The obsessions that thread through her films are already present: weapons, young men displaying outsize masculinity given over to a certain kind of despair and violence. (the film has no dialog)
Another tremendous duo: Gabriel Abrantes & Daniel Schmidt will show their debut feature Diamantino, after the film shook up the Semaine de la Critique at this year's Cannes Film Festival, and for which they received the Grand Prix.
- Discover Ennui ennui, starring Édith Scob, Golshifteh Farahani, and Laetitia Dosch, an amazing and strange film set in an unreal Afghanistan, a place of transactions between warlords and French diplomatic authorities. (with English subtitles)
- Discover History of Evil, a film essay that mirrors Argentina's colonial history with the gaze of the population 100 years later. (original Spanish version with English subtitles)
These films can be watched, free of charge, from September 6 through 16. Click on the titles above to access the films.
