Luxor (2020) // Zeina Durra

Head of Cinema Operations: Colin

"The Evening Standard called Luxor 'reminiscent of other deliberately excruciating movies where uptight, middle class singletons lose the plot' in their review, which eventually comes around. So will you. Riseborough's subtly disconnected performance grounds it, giving nod to the tension of the region and the relationships in the film. The photography and composition is beautiful; the story gentle yet affecting. And the shallowness of say an Eat Pray Love feels a million miles away."

The Rider (2017) // Chloé Zhao

Programme Manager: Evi

"Chloé Zhao’s second feature entranced audiences with what we now know as the director’s distinct cinematic style. Blending documentary and fiction and observing life’s complexities with a steady, poetic yet simple presence, The Rider is a beautiful character study of a young bronc rider in today’s South Dakota."
