M (M, 2018, Finland, English, dir. Anna Eriksson)
"M is a work of art that explores the relationship between sexuality and death. These two appear to be opposite forces, but in fact they merge in all of us, disguising the fear of death or the desire to die, the world of Eros and Thanatos.
In M the character of Marilyn Monroe should be seen as a symbol of this interpenetration. The actress´s death is as famous as her sexuality and thus sets a perfect example of how the ancient bond between sex and death is being forever mystified and exploited by the popular culture. M attempts to explore this phenomenon in a much more personal level.";
The Wild Boys (Les Garçons Sauvages, 2017, France, French with English subtitles, dir. Bertrand Mandico)
"At the beginning of the 20th century on the island of La Réunion, five adolescents of good family, enamoured with the occult, commit a savage crime.
A Dutch Captain takes them in charge for a repressive cruise on a haunted, dilapidated sailboat.
Exhausted by the methods of the Captain, the five boys prepare to mutiny. Their port of call is a supernatural island with luxuriant vegetation and bewitching powers.";
Dos Fridas (Dos Fridas, 2018, Costa Rica/México, Spanish with English subtitles, dir. Isthar Yasin)
“Dos Fridas” is inspired by the relationship between Mexican painter Frida Kahlo and her Costa Rican nurse Judith Ferreto - Judith cared for Frida during the final years of her life. In her memories, Frida was cared for by Judith in her Blue house in México. As a mirror, Judith was cared for by a woman in Costa Rica. In
Judith's inner world, reveries, myths, imagination and reality intertwine.;
Letters to Paul Morrisey (Letters to Paul Morrisey, 2018, Spain, Japanese/English/German/Spanish with English subtitles, dir. Armand Rovira);
Drugs, vampirism, existential crises and melodies of another time mark the lives of several characters: a sex symbol of the underground cinema, two cursed lovers, a man seeking his salvation, an unsuccesful actress and a Japanese with a mysterious illness. Five stories, apparently not related to each other, that have curious relationship with each other: Paul Morrisey, collaborator of Andy Warhol's Factory.;
