Things go badly for a small film crew shooting a low budget zombie movie when they are attacked by real zombies. In an abandoned building, a low-budget zombie horror film is falling apart on set. The abusive director is already pushing the cast and crew to the brink with his obnoxious behavior when he reveals his plan to inject energy and excitement into the project: unlocking a real-life ancient zombie curse. In a frenetic one-shot where body parts and fluids are flying, the actors fight the undead and their director for their lives before the film comes to a shocking conclusion and the credits roll...but is that the whole story? Academy Award–winning writer-director Michel Hazanavicius brings one of the most innovative, joyful, and funniest love letters to film and filmmaking you’ll ever see. Adapted from the cult Japanese box office hit One Cut of The Dead by Shinichiro Ueda. Show more

In the countryside of Mexico, the fates of three women collide when the case of a missing person leads them on a path of pain and redemption. Isabel and her family take possession of her mother’s villa in rural Mexico where they reconnect with their long-time domestic worker Maria. But things have never been the same since Isabel’s mother left. Once so well looked after, the house is now bare and neglected. Isabel and her husband are growing apart, and their children are increasingly worried about them. Maria’s sister’s disappearance has left her family in distress and forced her to engage in criminal activities with Adan, the son of a local policeman. Isabel decides to go on a dangerous quest, neglecting her own children, as well as her housekeeper’s warning that she does not understand how things work in Mexico’s poorer regions. Perfectly rendered in wide-framed images and unobtrusively fluid camerawork, the violence is muted and more social and psychological than physical in this first feature directed by Natalia López Gallardo, who has worked as an editor with Amat Escalante, Lisandro Alonso and Carlos Reygadas. Her ensemble film mixes realism, dreams and metaphors in which all the characters experience varying degrees of loss and abandonment. Every day, family members are disappearing through the cracks in society. But those who are most damaged are the ones who have lost a sense of what it means to have a home. Show more
