11 Masters Screening At TIFF

 

THE WHITE RIBBON (Michael Haneke)

MASTERS

Antichrist  Lars von Trier, Denmark/Sweden/France/Italy                                                                                            

This is a groundbreaking, deeply disturbing and graphic nightmare vision about gender relations from one of the most important and influential directors of the last 30 years. The film is a break from von Trier’s previous work in terms of aesthetics, resembling a Japanese horror movie re-imagined by Andrei Tarkovsky. Antichrist features unforgettable and courageous performances by Charlotte Gainsbourg and Willem Dafoe.

The White Ribbon

Michael Haneke, Germany/Austria/France/Italy                                                                         

North American Premiere

In Protestant Northern Germany on the eve of World War I, strange incidents begin to occur in a village community and increasingly take the form of a ritual of punishment. This latest work from Michael Haneke won the Palme d’Or for best film at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
