Pop Aye

Kirsten Tan / 2017, Thailand-Singapore
101min / Digital

A successful Bangkok architect in the midst of a midlife crisis is reunited with an elephant he knew growing up. The two embark on a road trip to the man's childhood home in the idyllic Thai countryside. Along the way, they meet a colorful cast of characters that includes a pair of nonplussed local police officers, a forlorn transgender sex worker, and a mysteriously wise drifter. As the encounters mount and the bond between man and elephant deepens, filmmaker Kirsten Tan weaves a strikingly universal tale in this feature debut that won prizes (and hearts) at the Sundance and Rotterdam Film Festivals. In Thai with English subtitles.

"Unforgettable. Every character and relationship is imbued with a fascinating complexity." The Hollywood Reporter

“Writer-director Kirsten Tan has pulled off POP AYE with candor and laid-back aplomb. Warm yet unsentimental, graced with the lightest touch of surrealism.” Variety

“Like all road movies, POP AYE also journeys into the interior lives of its characters, a trip that is aided and abetted by other travelers... Each adds another detail, a splash of color and real warmth… (The elephant) is beautiful and heartbreaking.” New York Times

Endless Poetry

Alejandro Jodorowsky / 2017, Chile-France
128min / Digital

Through renowned father of the midnight movies Alejandro Jodorowsky’s intensely personal lens, Endless Poetry tells the story of his years spent as an aspiring poet in Chile in the 1940s. Against the wishes of his authoritarian father, the 20 year old Jodorowsky leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet, and is introduced into the bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago where he meets Enrique Lihn, Stella Diaz Varín, Nicanor Parra, all unknown at the time, but who would later become driving forces of twentieth century Hispanic literature. Living with these inspirational artists, Jodorowsky’s exploration of his inner feelings takes him on a journey of sensual experimentation leading him to realize his innermost desires and passions. Continuing the autobiographical story he began in The Dance of Reality, Endless Poetry is an ode to the quest for beauty and inner truth, as a universal force capable of changing one’s life forever, written by a man who has dedicated his existence to creating spiritual and artistic awareness, told through Jodorowsky’s unique surreal and psychedelic visual language. In Spanish & French with English subtitles.

"Effortlessly moving as it is psychologically and artistically rich" The Film Stage

“A feast for the senses” The Hollywood Reporter

"Mr. Jodorowsky is a poet in the broadest sense, a restless artist whose temperament isn’t wedded to any particular form. He seems to embrace cinema out of convenience. He can’t beam his visions directly into your brain, or tattoo his words on your body, but this is the next best thing." New York Times

The Ghoul

Gareth Tunley / 2017, UK
85min / Digital

From executive producer Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Free Fire) comes a mind-bending British psychological thriller to sit alongside such classics of the genre as Nicolas Roeg and Donald Cammell’s Performance, David Lynch’s Lost Highway and Christopher Nolan’s Following. Chris is a homicide detective called to London to investigate a strange double murder. Both victims appear to have continued moving towards their assailant despite multiple gunshots to the face and chest. On a hunch, and with the help of an old colleague – and former girlfriend – Chris decides to go undercover as a patient to investigate the suspect’s psychotherapist, the mysterious Alexander Morland, who has a taste for the occult… The debut feature of writer-director Gareth Tunley, starring Tom Meeten (Sightseers), Alice Lowe (Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace) and Dan Renton Skinner (Notes on Blindness), The Ghoul is the latest standout addition to a thriving new wave of British cinema.

"a pleasingly perplexing enigma of a movie." Observer (UK)

Lemon

Lemon

Janicza Bravo / 2017, USA
83min / Digital

Lemon: a person or thing that proves to be defective, imperfect, or unsatisfactory. Isaac Lachmann (Brett Gelman) is a dud. Isaac Lachmann is 40. Isaac Lachmann is a man in free fall immobilized by mediocrity. His career is going nowhere. His girlfriend (Judy Greer) of ten years is leaving him. And his overbearing family doesn’t help matters. What did he do to deserve this? Things were supposed to work out differently for him. Isaac Lachmann had big dreams. Now he just watches as his life unravels.

"An instant classic that specifically feels like a product of 2017, the kind of bizarre culture treatise that could only come from fresh talent." Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com

"A comedy of embarrassment, discomfort and anxiety that just keeps getting funnier as it goes along, Lemon is a one-of-a-kind treat that, by ending almost too soon, follows the old showbiz principle of leaving 'em wanting more." Hollywood Reporter
