Rebellious and defiantly provocative The Beach Bum as well as brave and honest Our Time (Nuestro Tiempo) will be shown at the 19th New Horizons IFF. New movies by Harmony Korine, creator of both acclaimed and controversial Spring Breakers, and Carlos Reygadas, creator of the Post tenebras lux and Silent Light (Stellet licht) both of which won awards at Cannes, are visually stunning, subtle and deeply analytical depictions of modern concepts of freedom.
The Beach Bum by Harmony Korine
Creator of the Trash Humpers (10th NH) has outdone himself. The very clearly titled TheBeach Bum, a favorite of the New Horizon's audience, takes us to a never-ending party with Matthew McConaughey. Hollywood superstar masterfully plays with his own public image to give us Moondog. This hedonist - driven by sex, drugs and alcohol - may be the most chilled out individual since "The Dude" Lebowski. SPI is the movie's distributor in Poland.
Our Time (Nuestro Tiempo) by Carlos Reygadas
This time the Mexican director tells a story of a married couple who has the opportunity to experiment with the idea of an open relationship. He and his wife - Natalia López - as well as their children, Rut and Eleazar, are the main actors in the movie. Our Time is in no way about exhibitionism. It's about questioning the boundaries that we set (and break) in our relationships with our loved ones. Reygadas, in his own very perceptive way, studies how culture controls instincts, while transforming lust, aggression and passion into art. It also showcases how technology poses danger to relationships, enticing with different concepts of love and lifestyle. Gutek Film SPI is movie's distributor in Poland.
