AIFF2016 Day 4


 Tickets are still available to many outstanding films, including:

The Birth of Saké

9:30 a.m. Sunday at the Varsity.
“…a richly immersive documentary that plays like an elegy for a time-honored but slowly vanishing way of life. Steeped in the rhythms of sake production at one of the few Nipponese breweries that still relies on human hands rather than machines, Erik Shirai’s directing debut favors process and routine over personal drama — a fitting enough strategy for a trade whose workers must effectively sacrifice all sense of self in order to create their world-class spirits.” – Variety

6:00 p.m. Sunday at the Varsity

A transfixing, artfully wordless pilgrimage across the desert toward salvation. Told entirely through movement.

From Celia Rowlson-Hall: “In writing and making this movie, I pressed my ear to the ground; I wanted to listen and extract what all those women dead in the earth had to say. What I discovered after completing the film was that I made something essential to my own growth as a woman.”

 â€œA spellbinding and fiercely original cinematic experience” – Indiewire

The Pearl
