In FAYA DAYI, a New Directors/New Films selection, Ethopian-Mexican filmmaker Jessica Beshir explores the coexistence of everyday life and its mythical undercurrents. Though a deeply personal project—Beshir was forced to leave her hometown of Harar with her family as a teenager due to growing political strife—the film she returned to make about the city, its rural Oromo community of farmers, and the harvesting of the country’s most sought-after export (the euphoria-inducing khat plant) is neither a straightforward work of nostalgia nor an issue-oriented doc about a particular drug culture. Rather, she has constructed something dreamlike: a film that uses light, texture, and sound to illuminate the spiritual lives of people whose experiences often become fodder for ripped-from-the-headlines tales of migration. The hypnotic documentary feature opens virtually nationwide tonight at ND/NF and plays in our theaters on 5/10. Get tickets: newdirectors.org

An unusually ambitious epic told in eloquently simple brush strokes, Mexican filmmaker Pablo Escoto Luna’s ALL THE LIGHT WE CAN SEE is a daring work of minimalist gestures on a maximalist canvas, unfolding against the grand volcanic landscapes of Popocatépetl and Ixtaccihuatl. Guided by mythic storytelling traditions, the film, set during some indeterminant past, begins as the tale of a woman who runs off into the forest when forced to marry a bandit, before gradually revealing itself as a time-bending work of metaphysical beauty, responsive to the light and terrain of this radiant corner of the world. A ghost story, an ode to nature, and an examination of the artifice of narrative, Escoto Luna’s film offers to its viewers a rich and immense folkloric power. ALL THE LIGHT WE CAN SEE opens tomorrow virtually nationwide at New Directors/New Films and plays in our theaters today, with a special introduction from the director! Get tickets: newdirectors.org

In a daring decision, Anke, though suffering from depression and anxiety, travels to Hong Kong to find Max and perhaps also herself.

A landmark work of the New Queer Cinema of the early 1990s, Gregg Araki’s third feature marked a visionary reinvention of the road movie, suffused with the ambient irony, despair, and anger in the wake of the AIDS crisis. Destiny leads hustler Luke (Mike Dytri) to meet film critic Jon (Craig Gilmore), who, like Luke, is HIV-positive. When Luke kills a homophobic cop, the stage is sety for an expressly nihilistic road trip that transmutes the hopelessness of the LGBTQ+ community—after years of dealing with ubiquitous bigotry, persecution, and the pathogenic horror of the AIDS epidemic—into a lovers-on-the-run fever dream quite unlike any other.THE LIVING END, an official selection of the 21st New Directors/New Films, is now playing free nationwide through Wednesday on our Virtual Cinema.
