WILD
2016, 97 min, Germany, Dir: Nicolette Krebitz

Aimless and introverted, twentysomething office drone Ania (Lilith Stanenberg) seems entirely apathetic until the day she encounters a wolf in the woods near her home. With growing intensity, the need to establish a bond with the wolf comes to dominate Ania’s life; her eventual cohabitation with the wild animal prompts Ania to embrace an anarchic side that may have existed in her all along. With haunting cinematography and suitably bleak art direction, Krebitz’s film is a provocative, daring and decidedly dark modern fairy tale that challenges viewers' notions of conformity. In German with English subtitles.


Los Angeles Premiere!
Presented with the support of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Los Angeles:

ALOYS
2016, 91 min, Germany, Dir: Tobias Nölle

In the feature debut from writer-director Tobias Nölle, Aloys Adorn (Georg Friedrich) is a middle-aged private detective who records everything with his surveillance camera, obsessively collecting and reviewing the tapes. After his father dies, Aloys’ sheltered existence begins to fall apart; after a night of heavy drinking, he wakes up to find that his camera and tapes have been stolen. A mysterious woman (Tilde von Overbeck) calls offering to return the tapes if Aloys will play a “telephone walking” game with her - one that may finally bring the man out of his isolation and into the real world. In German and Swiss German with English subtitles.
