Sasquatch Sunset

This event has passed

There are apes. And then there are apes. Skirting the planetary ambitions of your Kongs and your Caesars, the family in the new film from the directors of Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter just want a quiet corner of the woods to call their own…

You will laugh, you will shriek, you may cover your eyes. But after 20 minutes of watching, you start to acclimatize, you start to appreciate their different personalities. The longer you stay with them, the more you start to see.

Eli Glasner, CBC

Sasquatch Sunset is a wildly ambitious project that wrestles with reality and fantasy, the familiar and unfamiliar, to stir our emotions and longing for natural beauty.

Monica Castillo,

Consistently weird and frequently wonderful, Sasquatch Sunset uses its high-concept premise to consider a host of themes: collective living, coexistence with nature, longing stirred by seclusion.

Also Playing

Pather Panchali

Satyajit Ray's first film opened eyes in the West. It's a naturalistic portrait of the childhood of a Brahman child, Apu, growing up in a village far from twentieth century technology in West Bengal.

The Night of the Hunter

One of the strangest and most beguiling movies you'll ever see, from a poetic, nightmarish novel by Davis Grubb, a fable about two children fleeing from a psychotic evangelical preacher (Robert Mitchum). Charles Laughton's only film as director.

The Battle of Algiers

French Colonel Mathieu hunts for Algerian resistance leader Ali la Pointe in Pontecorvo's classic, which draws the battle lines between colonialists and Arab insurrectionists in a pulsating, "fly-on-the-wall" documentary style.

Jacques Tati was modernity's clown; technology his banana skin. Here his alter-ego Monsieur Hulot navigates a sterile Paris that seems designed to thwart his every wish.
