  FREE FIRE 

FREE FIRE Release PosterBold, breathless and wickedly fun, Free Fire is an electrifying action comedy about an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong. Acclaimed filmmaker Ben Wheatley (Kill List, High Rise) propels the audience head-on into quite possibly the most epic shootout ever seen on film as he crafts a spectacular parody –– and biting critique –– of the insanity of gun violence. Everyone’s got a gun, and absolutely no one is in control.

Set in a colorful yet gritty 1970s Boston, Free Fire opens with Justine (Oscar® winner Brie Larson), a mysterious American businesswoman, and her wise-cracking associate Ord (Armie Hammer) arranging a black-market weapons deal in a deserted warehouse between IRA arms buyer Chris (Cillian Murphy) and shifty South African gun runner Vernon (Sharlto Copley). What starts as a polite if uneasy exchange soon goes south when tensions escalate and shots are fired, quickly leading to a full-on Battle Royale where it’s every man (and woman) for themselves.

Packed with witty one-liners, flamboyant characters and remarkable feats of cinematic gunplay, Free Fire is a full-throttle action extravaganza that keeps things fresh and fun with Wheatley’s alternately buoyant and savage sense of humor. Swinging from the madcap to the macabre and back again, the film is an exhilarating experience that will leave you quite literally blown away.

Now, on the twentieth anniversary of their disappearance, unseen footage has finally been discovered, chronicling the final hours of their fateful expedition.

  THE STUDENT 

THE STUDENT Release PosterAfter Venya’s mother receives a call from school reporting her son’s refusal to participate in mixed swimming lessons, she first suspects her teenager of being shy and derides his claim that it is “against his religion.” As Venya is finally exempted by the school’s devout principal, he grows confident that his strict and rigorous study of the Bible gives him the ability to manipulate all forms of authority.

Challenged by a teacher who refuses to consent to his dogma, he sets out to eliminate her and subdue an entire community. At a time when arguments over the teaching of religion in public schools are prominent in the media, this wildly escalating classroom drama — based on a play by German playwright Marius von Mayenburg — serves as a frightening cautionary tale.

  TOMORROW 

TOMORROW Release PosterIn 2012, “Nature” published a study led by more than 20 researchers from the top scientific institutions in the world predicting that humankind could disappear between 2040 and 2100. It also said that it could be avoided by drastically changing our way of life and take appropriate measures.

Shortly after giving birth to her first child, French actress and director Mélanie Laurent became increasingly aware of the dangers and the state of urgency that her son will face in the future. Along with friend and activist Cyril Dion and their crew, she decided to travel the world in search of solutions that can help save the next generations. The result is Tomorrow, an inspiring documentary that presents concrete solutions implemented throughout the world by hundred of communities.

From the US to the UK and through Finland and India, together they traveled to 10 countries to visit permaculture farms, urban agriculture projects and community-owned renewable initiatives to highlight people making a difference in the fields of food, energy, finance, democracy, and education. Their common ideas and examples make Tomorrow one of the most essential and unexpectedly inspirational viewing experiences of our time.

  SOMEWHERE BEAUTIFUL 

SOMEWHERE BEAUTIFUL Release PosterSOMEWHERE BEAUTIFUL, shot with exceptional detail on 16mm and 35mm film in the Patagonian wilds of Argentina and the idyllic sun soaked locale which is Los Angeles, is an intimate and restless tale of abandonment and acceptance.
One of the standouts from the DGA Directors Finder Screening Series, SOMEWHERE BEAUTIFUL stars the French film legend Dominique Pinon, rising Italian-American starlet Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz and stunning performances from Argentinian actors Pablo Cedron and Maria Alche as well as Robyn Buck.

In a metatextual homage to Atom Egoyan’s seminal Calendar (1993), Kodagolian films the first portion in South America, where the story revolves around a love triangle and a photographer’s doomed relationship. Back in Los Angeles, Kodagolian finds himself filming what will soon become a tragic, alternate universe of his own fiction: looking after his two-year old daughter in the slow motion collapse of his own marriage.

Interlacing his present life and his past views on love and partnership with the fictional tale set in Argentina, Kodagolian has created an effortlessly hypnotic ode to Patagonia as the timeless backdrop to an examination of the vulnerability of relationships and the reality-bending impact of the creative process.
