TOY STORY 4
2019, Walt Disney Studios, 100 min, USA, Dir: Josh Cooley

Nine years after the satisfying end of the third installment, Josh Cooley directs this triumphant return to the internationally beloved TOY STORY series of films. The story begins when Woody, who is still taking care of Bonnie, meets her beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale). After the new member of the toy collection declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries.


BUÑUEL IN THE LABYRINTH OF THE TURTLES
BUÑUEL EN EL LABERINTO DE LAS TORTUGAS
2019, GKIDS, 80 min, Spain/Netherlands/Germany, Dir: Salvador Simó

With a colorful animated style, BUÑUEL IN THE LABYRINTH OF THE TURTLES tells the nearly unbelievable true story of how Luis Buñuel made his second film in early 1930s Spain. Bogged down in controversy surrounding his first feature-length film, L’AGE D’OR, Buñuel has an incredible stroke of luck after obtaining a winning lottery ticket, which ultimately leads to avant-garde sculptor Ramón Acín agreeing to fund his next film. Featuring heartfelt vocal performances by Jorge Usón and Fernando Ramos and Buñuel’s real archival footage from the production, the film is a moving portrait of one of the world’s greatest artists at work. Winner of Best Film and Best Music at the 2019 Málaga Spanish Film Festival. “A fun, clever, and wholly unexpected animated movie about the making of Luis Buñuel's ‘Land Without Bread.’” - David Ehrlich, indieWire.
