THE HUNGRY
LES AFFAMÉS
2017, 100 min, Canada, Dir: Robin Aubert

In the provincial Quebec countryside, three survivors of a plague - a businesswoman with odd bloodlust, a young man who seems to have come to terms with the ongoing apocalypse, and a guilt-ridden young boy from a local farm - cross paths. Their journey together will lead them to understand not only the plague but one another, and the answers they find will not be easy or pleasant. With its ragtag group of characters running the gamut of Canadian society, whose interactions reflect the political systems in play, Aubert’s take on the zombie myth is full of local flavor that translates into stunning, surreal imagery.


MOHAWK
2017, 91 min, Dir: Ted Geoghegan

With a carefully crafted, historically informed milieu populated with true monsters and complex heroes, this tragic, tense and timely survival thriller won’t soon be forgotten. Set during the latter half of the War of 1812, MOHAWK follows Oak (Kaniehtiio Horn) and Calvin Two Rivers (Justin Rain), along with their British lover Joshua (Eamon Farren), as they’re relentlessly pursued by vengeful American soldiers through the dense forests of upstate New York. Caught in the crossfire between the British Empire and America, the powerful Mohawk nation stands neutral - until an impulsive attack on an American encampment by Calvin Two Rivers emboldens its racist leader, Hezekiah Holt, to destroy all Mohawks in his path.


THE ROOM
2003, Wiseau-Films/ Wiseau-Studio, LLC, 99 min, USA, Dir: Tommy Wiseau

Tommy Wiseau’s independently financed, directed, acted and edited cult hit has been playing cinema screens across the world almost every week for 13 years and counting. Wiseau stars as San Francisco banker Johnny, whose fiancée, Lisa (Juliette Danielle), begins an affair with Johnny’s best friend, Mark (Greg Sestero). With a carnivalesque array of Douglas Sirk-meets-John Waters characters meandering in and out of the storyline, this mesmerizing film defies any preconception you have of cinema with its wildly unorthodox approach to filmmaking as a craft.
