Beanpole (STA)
In 1945 Leningrad, reduced to rubble by the Second World War, a young woman, Iya, works in a hospital tending to soldiers wounded in battle. Tragedy strikes when her friend Masha returns from the front. Through an austere yet intimate lens – no surprise given his first film Closeness – Kantemir Balagov tackles the postwar fallout with fascinating historical exactitude. The 28-year-old filmmaker’s devastating second feature is brutal and provocative, both a well-handled study of female friendship and an unforgettable cinematic experience

THE ROOM
The Moviecard is not accepted for this special event.

THE ROOM is a sincere attempt by actor, director, writer, and producer Tommy Wiseau to create a romantic tragedy. Fortuantely it was so poorly made that it has attained cult status in LA, where monthly midnight screenings have been held for the last few years and audience participation has become a tradition.

Down in the swamp with films like Plan 9 from Outer Space and Troll 2, THE ROOM is so bad that it is among the top 10 bestselling comedies on amazon.com, and has even made it onto Wikipedia’s List of films considered the worst. You will find this movie so awful that you will want to watch it again and again.

• Is this the worst movie ever made? The Room is so unfeasibly bad, it has become a cult hit (The Guardian UK).
• “The Citizen Kane of bad movies” (Entertainment Weekly)
• “a bad – shockingly bad – romantic tragedy” (Time Out New York).

• “prompts most of its viewers to ask for their money back – before even 30 minutes have passed” (Variety).

Most film-makers have nightmares about reviews like these, but they’ve worked wonders for The Room, a movie whose transcendent awfulness has made it a cult phenomenon and an audience-participation fixture along the lines of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

L'assistante (STF)
Jane (Julia Garner), a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. Her day is much like any other assistant's. But as Jane follows her daily routine, she grows increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colors every aspect of her work day, an accumulation of degradations against which Jane decides to take a stand, only to discover the true depth of the system into which she has entered.
