Hérésie (STF)
The art world and the underworld collide in director Giuseppe Capotondi's elegant and erotic neo-noir thriller, The Burnt Orange Heresy. Set in present day Italy, irresistibly charismatic art critic James Figueras hooks up with provocative and alluring fellow American, Berenice Hollis. He's a classic anti-hero in the making with a charm that masks his deep ambition, whilst she's an innocent touring Europe, enjoying the freedom of being whoever she wishes. The new lovers travel to the lavish and opulent Lake Como estate of powerful art collector, Cassidy. Their host reveals he is the patron of Jerome Debney, the reclusive J.D. Salinger of the art world, and he has a simple request: for James to steal a Debney masterpiece from the artist's studio, whatever the cost. As the couple spend time with the legendary Debney, they start to realize that nothing about artist nor their mission is what it seems. But James is a man of deep, lurking ambition and he will do anything, from arson and burglary to murder, in order to further his career...

A White, White Day (STA)
In a small town in the Icelandic hinterland, ex-police chief Ingimundur, struggling to recover from his wife’s death two years earlier, begins to suspect she was having an affair with another man. The glacial beauty of Iceland’s landscapes, heightened by a coldly meticulous lens, serves as the backdrop to a portrait of a man whose feverish quest turns to obsession. Star Ingvar E. Sigurdsson’s commanding screen presence and the unsettling score by British composer Edmund Finnis lend finesse to Pálmason’s drama about vengeance, unconditional love and the downward spiral of a grief-stricken widower.

Minuit au Parc: Donnie Darko Director\'s Cut
A troubled teenager is visited by a giant rabbit, as prophetic as it is sinister, announcing to him that the end of the world will occur in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds. Intriguing, disturbing, unconventional, unclassifiable and unique, there are more than enough reasons to see this enigmatic film. For starters, the cast features a very young Jake Gyllenhaal, as well as Drew Barrymore and Patrick Swayze cast starkly against type. Richard Kelly's first feature film takes a gloomy look at adolescence in the 1980s, projecting the viewer into an otherworldly time and place. Adored by critics, DONNIE DARKO still didn’t find its audience in 2001, but a genuine cult following has built up around this nihilistic sci-fi thriller since then, thanks to its DVD release. So much so that a Director's Cut was produced three years after its release, making it the first flop to receive such a luxury treatment. DONNIE DARKO proves itself to be a perfect encounter between genre film and auteur cinema.

This screening will be preceded by a series of retro trailers and other entertaining surprises on the screen.

“Donnie Darko" was one of the best pictures released in 2001. Now that it has returned in a 20-minute longer--and richer -- director's cut, it seems sure to be ranked as one of the key American films of the decade.” – Los Angeles Times

“Donnie Darko may be the Everest of adolescent angst movies. A smart, emotionally troubled suburban teen wrestles with the usual stuff -- identity issues, bullies, well-meaning but clueless parents and various school absurdities -- and a few things considerably stranger” - The San Francisco Chronicle

“Alive, original and intriguing.” – Roger Ebert
