THINGS TO COME

FRANCE/ GERMANY – 2016 – 100 MIN – COLOUR - FEATURE - IN FRENCH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
A FILM BY MIA HANSEN-LØVE

FEATURING: ISABELLE HUPPERT, ANDRÉ MARCON, ROMAN KOLINKA, EDITH SCOB, SARAH LE PICARD, SOLAL FORTE, ELISE LHOMEAU, LIONEL DRAY, GRÉGOIRE MONTANA-HAROCHE, LINA BENZERTI

Nathalie teaches philosophy at a high school in Paris. She is passionate about her job and particularly enjoys passing on the pleasure of thinking. Married with two children, she divides her time between her family, former students and her very possessive mother. One day, Nathalie’s husband announces he is leaving her for another woman. With freedom thrust upon her, Nathalie must reinvent her life. Mia Hansen-Løve’s fifth feature marks a departure from the topic of youth; instead she has chosen to explore the onset of age in a powerful yet also ironic portrait of a woman. The film revolves around questions of happiness, of having a vocation and the value or folly of established ways of living. It depicts not only one individual’s search for new avenues, it also asks if – and to what extent – philosophy can be applied to our everyday life.

InnSæi – the Power of Intuition

InnSæi – the Power of Intuition

2016 - ICELAND - 78 MINUTES - ENGLISH
A FILM BY KRISTÍN ÓLAFSDÓTTIR & HRUND GUNNSTEINSDOTTIR

The ancient Icelandic word for intuition is “innsæi,” but in Iceland it has multiple meanings. It can mean “the sea within” which is the borderless nature of our inner world, a constantly moving world of vision, feelings and imagination beyond words. It can mean “to see within” which means to know yourself, and to know yourself well enough to be able to put yourself in other people’s shoes. And it can mean “to see from the inside out” which is to have a strong inner compass to navigate your way in our ever-changing world.
