This year’s opening film: A Fantastic Woman
In this year’s opening film Chilean director Sebastian Lelio introduces viewers to Marina and the intense hate she faces for being a trans-person. The story is a painful reminder of how difficult it can be to live out your gender identity, as well as bidding farewell to the person you love. A Fantastic Woman won the Silver Bear for best script during this year’s film festival in Berlin.

This year’s closing film: The Age of Shadows
Kim Jee-woon is one of South Koreas most prominent directors. In this masterfully composed spy thriller he brings us back to the 1920s and a Korea under Japanese occupation. The Korean independence movement is planning to blow up Japanese headquarters and is aided by Hungarian anarchists in smuggling dynamite to the desired target.

One of the films we started receiving requests for early on was the Indian comedy-drama Lipstick Under My Burkha. The film portrays four Indian women who all struggle to find their identity and break free from traditional expectations within Indian society. The women’s very own dreams and fantasies take center stage in this thought provoking, funny and important film.
Buy tickets to the screening at 3.30 pm on Nov. 12 here.
