Hong Kong Festival Sets Mikio Naruse Tribute, Sylvia Chang Focus

11 February 2015 3:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Restored, color versions of “Daughters, Wives and a Mother,” and “Scattered Clouds” are set to be the highlight of a film season at next month’s Hong Kong International Film Festival which will celebrate the life and work of the late great Japanese film maker Mikio Naruse.

The festival will also show “Repast” (1951), and “Floating Clouds” (1955). A further eight more Naruse films will unspool at the Hkiff’s Cine Fan program during April and May.

Naruse, who was director, screenwriter and producer, made some 89 films spanning the end of the silent film era to 1967. And is best known for movies that reflect emotionally and profoundly on the social condition of women, especially in the post-war era.

This year is the 110th anniversary of Naruse’s birth and the 60th anniversary of “Floating Clouds.”

The festival has previously announced that Hong Kong-based Taiwanese director and actor Sylvia Chang will be its ‘film maker in focus. »

Berlin Review: Katherine Waterston and Elisabeth Moss Triumph in Alex Ross Perry's 'Queen of Earth'

10 February 2015 8:20 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The stars are currently aligning auspiciously for Katherine Waterston, who quickly supplements her attention-grabbing performance as the not-so-missing person in Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice" with a startlingly impressive co-lead turn opposite small-screen favorite Elisabeth Moss in Alex Ross Perry's "Queen of Earth". The fourth feature from the Pennsylvanian writer-director - whose Sundance-premiered "Listen Up Philip" nabbed the runner-up prize (splitting Lav Diaz and Pedro Costa, no less) at Locarno last August - this janglingly unsettling, darkly comic psychological drama proved to be the hottest ticket at the Berlin International Film Festival's parallel Forum section. With Perry confirmed as a critically-lauded leading light among younger U.S. indie filmmakers, the enigmatically-titled "Queen of Earth" can expect plentiful festival exposure and appeals as a provocatively debate-sparking candidate for niche theatrical »

Notebook's 7th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2014

5 January 2015 10:08 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

How would you program this year's newest, most interesting films into double features with movies of the past you saw in 2014?

Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2014—in theatres or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2014 to create a unique double feature.

All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2014 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch »
