(THE NOTHING FACTORY)

Section:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • TORINO 35

From the realism of the crisis which has been gripping Portugal since 2008 to the unexpected explosion of a musical: when the workers in an elevator factory realize that the management is dismantling the machinery and raw materials, they organize themselves to fight the delocalization and remain at their stations, even if there is no work to do. A portrait of post-capitalism, part agitprop, documentary, drama and psychological and musical comedy. The complex, vivid and ironical debut of a young director.

À VOIX HAUTE

(SPEAK-UP)

  • TORINO 35

Every year, the University of Saint-Denis elects its best orator. The students of a multiracial class participate in the competition; a professor teaches them the secrets of language and the art of expression. At stake is the pleasure of taking the floor, existing on the world stage but also changing the world through the power of ideas. A dazzling film about a future to be constructed, about democracy, about the value of education, and about the overwhelming power of words and ideas. Still, today.

AL TISHKECHI OTI

(DON'T FORGET ME)

by Ram Nehari
2017
87'
Israel

Section:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • TORINO 35

The story of an anorexic girl and a deranged tuba player, between psychiatric wards and rehabilitation centers for eating disorders. They meet by chance and fall in love in their own way, but their hope for a normal life is frustrated by a myriad of family and social factors. Vegan folly and sharp social barbs for a drama disguised as a comedy, desperate and light, fierce and romantic, an illuminating cross-section of Israel today, its malaise and its identity complex.

ARPÓN

(HARPOON)

by Tom Espinoza
2017
82'
Argentina

Section:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • TORINO 35

A principal fears that dangerous objects might be introduced into his school and spends his days controlling the backpacks of his students. In the backpack of a young rebellious girl he finds a syringe that she uses to makes injections into her companion’s lips. After an accident, the girl is entrusted to the man who, against his will, has to take care of her for a day. A thriller about responsibility, abuse, social suspicion; clear, quick-paced, with a dry style and suspended rhythm. The actors’ portrayal of their characters’ repressed drive is spot on.

BAMY

  • TORINO 35

A red umbrella falls from the sky. He sees ghosts; she doesn’t; things go downhill. Then he meets a girl who has his same power and who is even more scared than he is. A new take in J-Horror, a fascinating and mysterious first film which combines attention to form and minimalism; bizarreness and irony; the obscurity of the themes and situations, and the clarity of the intentions. Up to a surprising and literally gigantic finale, which confronts the (un)reality of things and the power of the imagination.

Catherine has never been a mother and her daughter Alba, who is now an adolescent, was raised by her grandmother. After years of absence, the woman shows up, not to take over a role she knows she cannot fill but, simply, to spend some time with the girl. Three generations of women in a taut, all-female film which suspends time, reshuffles the cards of affection and delusion, gets angry, relaxes, and plays with the true mother-daughter relationship which binds Isabelle Huppert to the protagonist Lolita Chammah.

BLUE KIDS

(BLUE KIDS) - (BLUE KIDS)

by Andrea Tagliaferri
2017
75'
Italy

Section:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • TORINO 35

A brother and sister, a morbid relationship, an inheritance, a conflict with their father and a crazy, deliberate action that makes them escape together. A former assistant of Matteo Garrone (who produced this film), Andrea Tagliaferri debuts with a story of ordinary immorality, a black fairytale which is a child of our time, a boring world to redeem oneself from using horror, if necessary, in which psychologies, characters and places are stylized and studied with entomological care and a precise, cutting and original gaze.

DAPHNE

by Peter Mackie Burns

  • TORINO 35

Daphne is an emancipated 30-year-old Londoner: she works as a chef in a chic restaurant, lives on her own, and has an uninhibited sex life and a tormented relationship with her mother. She reads Žižek, talks too much and has a cynically detached view of the world. But one day, a random event seems to shatter her maniacal control over reality. A soul-searching mystery which draws a precise and disturbing female portrait, with a pronounced sense for describing human, urban and social milieus, in a London which is both alienating and attractive.

KISS AND CRY

(KISS AND CRY)

2017
80'
France

Section:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • TORINO 35

They glide over the ice, ethereal, they take flight, sometimes they fall: a group of 15-year-old ice skaters deal with their daily life made of friendships, competitions, crushes, difficulties, doubts, choices, family conflicts. They are dominated by their very strict trainer, who borders on the sadistic. The first work by two documentary filmmakers, an atypical Bildungsroman which captures the nuances of growing up, makes no moral judgment, puts itself in the shoes of its young protagonists and admires their overflowing, contagious vitality.
