FAVOLA

(FAIRYTALE) - (FAVOLA)

di Sebastiano Mauri
2017
87'
Italy

Sezione:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

Mrs. Fairytale and Mrs. Emerald: two friends who share secrets, recipes and dissatisfactions with each other inside a model 1950s American home. Windows and sunsets which recall Douglas Sirk (and Todd Haynes), Grace Kelly-style clothes, hairstyles and ambiguity, in the film version of the 2015 comedy by Filippo Timi, who also stars (in drag), alongside Lucia Mascino. A tour de force by director Sebastiano Mauri, humor tinged with drama (and vice versa), the strength to live your own life.

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL

The alpha male role of an arrogant intellectual is shattered when, after a sidewalk quarrel, a motorcyclist molests his wife and he is unable to react.

By the director of The Man with the Orange Jacket, presented at TFF32, a taut psychological thriller which delves into male fears with intelligence and disorients the spectator.

GAME OF DEATH

(GAME OF DEATH)

di Laurence "Baz" Morais, Sebastien Landry
2017
76'
Canada

Sezione:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

A board game, the Game of Death, has just one rule: if you don’t kill someone, your head will explode in 20 minutes. Seven unsuspecting young people participate, at their own expense. Imagine Jumanji played Battle Royale- and Natural Born Killers-style, with frequent and abundant splashes of blood which are straight out of the ‘80s: a very fast-paced, violent and cynical horror movie, a tour de force for fans in the mood for rabid splatter.

KUSO

(KUSO) - (KUSO)

di Steve
2017
96'
USA

Sezione:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

Flying Lotus, a California musician and rapper, debuts with a film which is sure to cause a stir. In a post-Big One Los Angeles, we follow the parallel lives of a few survivors, amid gigantic nightmarish insects, organic decomposition, scatological obsessions and genital mutilations. A body horror movie obsessed with pop art, which it references, it subsumes, digests and expels the cinema of Cronenberg, Tsukamoto, Korine, Švankmajer, and the Quay Brothers.

LES AFFAMÉS

(THE RAVENOUS)

di Robin Aubert
2017
96'
Canada

Sezione:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

A group of survivors has to deal with a zombie apocalypse in the outlands of Quebec, amid forests, meadows and isolated houses. Canada’s Robin Aubert, at his fifth film, makes one of the most successful, intelligent and scary zombie movies in recent years, mixing together new ideas and fundamental rules, playing with suspension, sounds, gore, humor and almost Antonioni-like metaphysics. A cross between The Walking Dead and The Wicker Man.

MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND

(MOST BEAUTIFUL ISLAND)

di Ana Asensio
2017
80'
Spain

Sezione:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

Young, beautiful and penniless in New York, the Spaniard Luciana accepts a strange job: she has to show up at a mysterious party wearing an evening gown and can only be looked at. Things turn disturbing and dangerous once she gets there. Debut filmmaker Ana Asensio wrote, directed and acts in this psychological thriller labeled Glass Eye Pix, or rather, Larry Fessenden. Halfway between Polanski’s Repulsion and Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut, with an added touch of sociological naturalism.

SEQUENCE BREAK

(SEQUENCE BREAK)

di Graham Skipper
2017
80'
USA

Sezione:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • AFTER HOURS

Almost contemporaneously, a solitary aficionado of vintage videogames comes across the girl he’s crazy about and a mysterious and hypnotic arcade which might take his life. Nostalgia for the 8-bit videogames of the 1980s combines with regret for the techno-carnal cinema of the Cronenberg who made Videodrome and eXistenZ, in this debut indie film which mixes love and nightmares, as organic as it is inorganic.
