Canadian Beacon: 2015 Marrakech Int. Film Fest Snapshot Capsule Day 2

15 December 2015 12:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

In the scheduled nine day run, the Marrakech Int. Film Festival truly gets into gear on the first Saturday when the fifteen competing films (having all recently premiered elsewhere) are slowly unveiled to the high brow jury. My first stab at Director General Bruno Barde’s selections was Paradise, a contemporary, Tehran doldrum portrait which was also a double Locarno winner. After that, I was treated to an uneventful press conference for the compassionately generous Bill Murray with the only bit of noteworthy news was his involvement in the new Wes Anderson film.

Later that evening, the festival gives what is an annual Valentine’s card of sorts to one national cinema. This year’s selection is one that I’m all too familiar with. With Atom Egoyan selected as the ambassador, the reel presentation included highlights from Canadiana with a glaring absence of select Quebecois films and Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner. »

The Dead Lands

Written by Glenn Standring

Directed by Toa Fraser

New Zealand, 2014

Set in New Zealand, long before the arrival of European colonialists, The Dead Lands sees the journey of 16-year-old Hongi (James Rolleston) as he transforms from warrior apprentice to full fledged killer under harrowing circumstances he much rather do without. The land where he has grown up was, up until recently, prospering in a much-welcomed peace, but it was not so long ago that war engulfed the neighbouring tribes. One leader, Wirepa (Te Kohe Tuhaka), suffers an insatiable thirst to crush the wipe out the current détente and aggrandize his legacy throug whichever means available, including the senseless massacre of Hongi’s entire tribe. Left to fend for himself and seeking justice, Hongi will be call upon the help of an estranged warrior (Lawrence Makoare), some would say monster, who lives in a damned region of the »
