“I’m really nervous,” said Duvernay as she introduced the film. “Maybe it’s because this is my hometown. Maybe it’s because there are over 1,000 of us here...But it’s probably the Angela Bassett factor.” Bassett showed up just to support the film. DuVernay is the first African American to win the Sundance award for Best Directing.  "Stephanie Allain is a doer," said DuVernay. "She said, 'This is a small story, but it&rsquo...

Hollow Feet

Director: Nick Walters .
The film is an oddly charming and unique love story that explores a twisted psychological predicament as in the ‘extremist’ tradition of Japanese and South Korean cinema… A big city at night. Two young cyborg lovers (a Japanese boy and girl) are on the run from repair men. The couple reaches a bridge and agrees to jump to escape to a better world but as they step off the boy pulls out at the last moment. After a literal kiss of death (from the figure of Death itself) the girl's ghost rises from her body and looks around for her partner, but the boy sneaks off, ashamed he failed to keep his promise. Whilst sulking and hidden in a giant cardboard box (once used to contain a cyber), a cunning idea strikes the boy – one which he thinks will allow him to face the girl with respect intact ...but it backfires spectacularly and he wanders the night streets in a sulk, his various comical attempts to terminate himself intermittently punctuating his gloom. Out of ideas and resigned to the fact that he will never again be with the girl, a passing emergency siren leads him on a chase through the night streets as he hunts down the figure of Death itself... The film shares a combination of the mythical tone and dark humour of Old Boy with the playful, dream-like tone of Punch Drunk Love.

Tengu

Director: Roger Walch.
David (Ted Taylor) comes to Japan for one week to study traditional legends. He is supposed to meet Professor Ozawa, a leading expert in the field. But when he arrives, he gets picked up by Ozawa's two female assistants, Sanae (Mimori Sento) and Manami (Sakiko Ikegami). They bring him to a traditional guest-house and accompany him during his stay. A strange man in the bath house (Kan Mikami) tells David about the local Tengu legend. Tengu are a class of well known monster-spirits with a long nose and a red face who live in the Japanese forests and mountains. David is immediately fascinated. But the more he finds out about the Tengu, the more he is drawn into his own past-life. As a matter of fact some Tengu legends can be connected to shipwrecked foreigners who were forced to live in hiding in the Japanese mountains during Japan's Sakoku (closed country) era (1637 - 1853). Ultimately, "Tengu" is the story of a Westerner who becomes the origin of a famous Japanese legend.
