Directed by Alistair Banks Griffin, The Wolf Hour had its World Premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and is now on general cinema release in the United States.

 

With Production Design by Kaet McAnneny, The Wolf Hour features Naomi Watts (The Impossible, King Kong, Mulholland Drive), Brennan Brown (Focus, State of Play, I Love You Phillip Morris) and Jennifer Ehle (Zero Dark Thirty, A Quiet Passion, Pride & Prejudice).

 

The Wolf Hour follows the life of June (Watts) who was a once a known counter-culture figure, but that was a decade ago. She now lives alone in her South Bronx apartment, having all but cut herself off from the outside world. It’s the notorious “Summer of Sam” and June only has to look out of her window to see the violence escalating with the brutal summer heat. The city is on a knife’s edge, a pressure-cooker about to explode into the incendiary 1977 New York blackout riots.

Congratulations to director Jerry Rothwell, whose documentary feature The Reason I Jump, with cinematography by Ruben Woodin Dechamps, receives its world premiere at Sundance 2020.

Based on the best-selling book by Naoki Higashida, The Reason I Jump, is an immersive cinematic exploration of neurodiversity through the experiences of nonspeaking autistic people from around the world. The film blends Higashida’s revelatory insights into autism, written when he was just 13, with intimate portraits of five remarkable young people. It opens a window into an intense and overwhelming, but often joyful, sensory universe.

Acutely observed moments in the lives of each of the characters are connected by passages from Naoki’s writing, in which a young Japanese boy journeys through an epic landscape, gradually discovering what his autism means to him, how his perception of the world differs, and why he acts in the way he does: the reason he jumps.

The film distils these elements into a sensually rich tapestry that leads us to Naoki’s core message: not being able to speak does not mean there is nothing to say.

Ruben’s last feature documentary, Granny Project, directed by Bálint Révész, won Best Film at the International Leipzig Festival, and documentary short If You Knew directed by Stroma Cairns won Best Short at Open City Documentary Festival earlier this year.

Narrative work includes That Girl and We Love Moses, both directed by Dionne Edwards, the former premiering on C4 as part of the On The Edge season.

Sundance runs from 23 January to 2 February 2020, in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Shot by Cinematographer Susie Salavati, Beyond the Salween (directed by Gigi Berardi) played in competition at the Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival 2019.

 

Beyond the Salween is set in the jungle of Eastern Burma, where a medical student, a trainer and a senior medic all face the consequences of the longest standing civil war in the world.

 

Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival started in 1989 and is Asia’s first international documentary film festival and has been described as a “magnet for independent filmmakers.”

 

“Considering that he does not speak the language, Berardi achieves a remarkable sense of intimacy with subjects. During the Q&A he attributed this to immersion and familiarity. “I only switched on the camera when I saw they got bored of me.”

 

The narrative arc of the film follows the medic’s hike over several hundred kilometres. We encounter patients along the way in a series of vignettes. The most shocking of these occurs when the medics shoot a pig to practice resuscitation. The unfortunate patient dies and one medic retreats in tears. The film avoids shock, sentimentality, didacticism. Although formally conventional, Berardi’s approach feels assured and sincere.” BFI
