Synopsis In this gorgeously dreamlike and mysterious tale, a young woman named Clarice gives birth on her deathbed to a baby girl also christened Clarice by the bruxa (or witch) attending the nearly simultaneous moments of death and birth. Spirited away to a remote lakeside village, baby Clarice lives her whole life in the span of twenty-four hours, and yet (as the film’s vast, black-and-white panoramas suggest) even so compressed a lifetime remains impossible to fully grasp or contain. In Eduardo Nunes’s assured debut feature, precious strands of memory, identity and desire add up to a palpable fairytale affirming our place in the ineffable stream of life.


About the Director Eduardo Nunes was born in Niterói, Brazil in 1969. He studied cinema at the Fluminense Federal University in Rio de Janeiro. He has worked as an assistant director, producer and editor. He directed documentaries beginning in 1998 and has also directed five short films. His short film Reminiscence won Best Brazilian Short Film and Best Brazilian Short Film Sound at the Belo Horizonte International Short Film Festival in 2002. Southwest is his first feature film.

Synopsis A solitary philosophy student steers his directionless life toward the commission of a violent crime, spurred on by postmodern musings and a post-Soviet order characterized by growing inequality, institutional corruption and a ruthless ethic of “eat or be eaten.“ Inspired by Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment, director Darezhan Omirbayev roots his nameless student in the losing segment of Kazakhstan’s new capitalist era, whose population watches the rich rise above common legal proscriptions and old-fashioned communal values. Omirbayev’s brooding protagonist may prove the willing student of the age, but he alone reckons with the consequences of his actions—a gesture strikingly at odds with a world losing a consistent concept of justice.


About the Director Darezhan Omirbayev was born in the Dzhambul Province of the Soviet Union (now Kazakhstan) in 1958. His debut feature, Kairat, won the Silver Leopard and the FIPRESCI Prize at the Locamo Film Festival in 1992, and the FIPRESCI Prize at the Strasbourg Film Festival in 1993. His third feature, Killer, won the Un Certain Regard Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1998. Student is his sixth feature film.
