If the name "Hokusai" is unfamiliar, you will know the famous painting of a breaking wave which is his masterpiece. In this ravishing anime, we see that the artist may have had some unacknowledged help from his daughter. This gorgeous film is another example of the maturity and depth Japanese animators bring to the form.

As close to omniscient as a film buff is ever likely to get, the late North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il was so enamoured by South Korean moviemakers Shin Sang-ok and his actress (and ex-wife) Choi Eun-hee that he had them kidnapped, whisked over the border, and put to work reviving local film production. They had little choice but to comply, and in the process, they fell back in love… "Perhaps the all-time strangest, most outlandish true-life story connected to the cinema and its practitioners…Fascinating on personal, political and cinematic levels." Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

(Canada, 2016, 96 mins, DCP)

In Nettie Wild’s stunning magnum opus, a mining company helicopter hovers above the pristine land of the Tahltan First Nation in Northern BC, carrying a huge electric transmission tower, casting patterned shadows. This conflict between man-made geometries and nature’s vortices is at the film’s heart. Marking a tonal departure from her earlier documentaries, Wild creates a balanced profile that’s free of polemics and a feast for the eyes.
