OIFF Mini Film Fest 2019
Eight hand-picked films by OIFF film curator Carl Spence include; KNOCK DOWN THE HOUSE, the audience award winner from Sundance, which was voted best overall docs and narratives. The Glasgow country singing audience favourite from TIFF, WILD ROSE. Award-winning director Zhang Yimou’s latest SHADOW from China who once again pushes boundaries to create a swordplay epic like no other. Kenya’s banned but submitted to the academy awards lesbian love story, RAFIKI reminiscent of Spike Lee’s early work. Germany’s Oscar Nominated best foreign language film, NEVER LOOK AWAY. THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM, a most charming documentary on the trial, tribulations, and pitfalls of city folk trying to tame the land for harvest. From India, PHOTOGRAPH by director Ritesh Batra comes a powerfully romantic and gently comedic film which made it’s world premiere at Sundance film festival this year. And just added to the line up, MONOS from Colombia which won a Special Jury Award at Sundance, is sure to be one of the most hotly debated films of 2019—Alejandro Landes’s intensely thrilling twist on Lord of the Flies.
