Staging historical reenactments of the investigation alongside archival footage of the grim, gruesome event itself, Rabin, the Last Day offers a nuanced account of the unraveling of a modern democracy while gesturing to alternate histories—the peace that might have been. Amos Gitaï's documentary premiered at Venice, where it won the Human Rights Film Network Award; Toronto, Karlovy Vary, and Hong Kong; Munich, where it won a Special Mention, and Seville, where it won a Special Jury Award.

March: Spotlight on Brazil II — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

During the month of March Filmatique presents Spotlight on Brazil II, a collection of films from some of the most exciting voices in contemporary Brazilian cinema.

Fellipe Barbosa's Casa Grande examines the insidious effects of economic privilege in modern-day Rio de Janeiro, as a young man's coming-of-age coincides with the dismantling of his family's fortune. Marco Dutra and Juliana Rojas's Hard Labor exposes the uncertain nature of middle-class existence vis-à-vis a cinematic language that teeters uneasily between suspense, genre, and neorealist aesthetics, while Caetano Gotardo's The Moving Creatures meditates on the enormity of a mother's love by lingering on empty moments—the unseen, the unsaid. Gabriel Mascaro's August Winds observes comings and goings in a coastal community during the tropical storm season, conjuring the perilousness of everyday life in the climate-change era.

Embodied Thrills and Visceral Rollercoasters in Sebastian Schipper's Victoria — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

In an exclusive essay for Filmatique, Guest Curator Aldo Kempen explores the correspondence between the spectator and the camera as embodied presence in Sebastian Schipper's tour-de-force fourth feature, Victoria.

Strobing lights and pulsing tech-house envelop Victoria as she moves through a cavernous, dilapidated club that could not be anywhere but Berlin. With a score produced by the house music coryphée DJ Koze, the eponymous film, Victoria , tracks—quite literally (as the film is shot in 'one-take')

The Non-Binary Vectors of Import/Export — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

In an exclusive essay for Filmatique, Guest Curator Ritika Biswas traces invisible vectors of inter-European migrations and linguistic markers of entitlement and power in Ulrich Seidl's Import/Export.

While the title of Ulrich Seidl's Import/Export appears to signify a simple parallel story working in opposite directions, the film renders notions of direction compelled by free will and choice as laughable trivialities. The backslash in the title forms an axis that hinges upon either the cons

"Wretchedness commutes between the Ukraine and Austria in Ulrich Seidl's miserable but masterful drama Import/Export. Helmer's trademark unrelenting gaze into despair will come as no surprise to those familiar with his work. Seamless performances by mostly nonpros add vividness to Seidl's dark vision" - Russell Edwards, Cannes Review, Variety
