MUBI’s Exclusive Strands:
[The New Auteurs] After showcasing her documentary Casa Roshell in 2018, MUBI will again present the exclusive online premiere of Camila José Donoso’s latest work. Nona, If They Soak Me, I’ll Burn Them (Rotterdam ‘19) is an intimate portrait of Donoso’s grandmother that is both deeply personal and a bold look at Chile’s recent past.
[Undiscovered] MUBI is excited to again highlight the work of experimental animator Jodie Mack, exclusively presenting her feature debut The Grand Bizarre (Locarno ‘18). Mack brings mundane objects to life in this world journey following the flow of materials, textures and sounds across the global economy.
[Luminaries] A lyrically eerie supernatural horror film set in a desolate Canadian town, Ghost Town Anthology (Berlin ‘19) is the latest genre-bending work from renowned Québécois filmmaker Denis Côté.
[Debuts] Alexander Zolotukhin’s highly stylized debut feature A Russian Youth is a dreamy WWI film following a young blinded soldier. Premiering at last year’s Berlinale, this is a master work of formalist cinema.
Belmondo & Melville
To celebrate the birthday of Jean-Paul Belmondo, MUBI will feature a double bill of collaborations between the New Wave icon and the master genre director Jean-Pierre Melville. The selection includes Le doulos, one of Melville’s best modernist reinventions of the American gangster film.
Pietro Marcello Double Bill
With his latest film Martin Eden coming to US theaters next month, MUBI will showcase the early work of one of the most singular voices in Italian contemporary cinema. Pietro Marcello’s hybrid, genre-bending documentaries gracefully meditate on memory, fading ideals, and the poetry of chance encounters.
MUBI will exclusively present the online premieres of three recent, acclaimed films from our northern neighbors in partnership with Canada Now, a showcase for works celebrating the creative spirit of Canadian cinema is currently touring theaters across the U.S. MUBI’s selection includes One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk (TIFF ‘19), the latest feature from prominent Inuit director Zacharias Kunuk.
Winner of the Silver Bear for cinematography at Berlin 2016, cinematographer Mark Lee Ping-bing’s (In the Mood for Love) masterful 35mm photography in Crosscurrent is poetic and richly evocative. MUBI is proud to present the streaming premiere of this beguiling and deeply romantic drama.
Next month, MUBI will celebrate renowned writer, playwright, and filmmaker Marguerite Duras by exclusively presenting her seminal work India Song (Cannes ‘75). Set in the colonialist homes of 1930s India, Duras casts Delphine Seyrig as a diplomat’s wife haunted by imperialist guilt.
Filmed over ten years, and split into three parts, Wang Bing’s Dead Souls (Cannes ‘18) digs deep into one of the most overlooked chapters in Chinese history. This immersive, epic piece of non-fiction filmmaking is a resonant reflection on memory, human behavior, and the courage of testimony.
