    DOGTOOTH

    Yorgos Lanthimos Greece, 2009

    A festival hit nominated for an Academy Award, Dogtooth is a darkly comic insight into a surreal world of parental control gone mad. As shocking and brutal as it is humorous, elegant, and entertaining, Greek “Weird Wave” auteur Yorgos Lanthimos’s film is bold and inventive cinema.

    KEEP THE LIGHTS ON

    Ira Sachs United States, 2012

    Premiering at Sundance, this indie is a sensitive look at the lifecycle of an imperfect match. Director Ira Sachs based the script on his own personal relationship, but transcends the personal aspects of his experience to form a universal and resonant look at the bonds formed through a partnership.

    Babis Makridis Greece, 2012

    Those looking for the next “new wave” should turn to Greece, where severe depression has inspired a truly bizarre and inspired range of films highlighted by Dogtooth’s Oscar nomination. We lead a New Greek Cinema double feature with a drolly allegorical debut, co-written by Dogtooth’s scribe.
