New on DVD: MUTUM and POSSIBLE LIVES

MUTUM from Brazil and POSSIBLE LIVES from Argentina Available December 7th!

The Global Film Initiative is pleased to announce the DVD release of two new films from the Global Lens film series:

MUTUM
Dir. Sandra Kogut, Brazil
This touching drama, acclaimed for achieving “a rare authenticity in its captivating depiction of the innocence and wisdom of childhood” (Museum of Modern Art), tells the story of a young boy in rural Brazil grappling with his disintegrating family and the uncertainties of the adult world. Official Selection of the 39th Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes.

POSSIBLE LIVES (LAS VIDAS POSIBLES)
Dir. Sandra Gugliotta, Argentina
“Beautifully shot” and evoking a “moody sensuousness” (Hollywood Reporter), this haunting film follows a woman searching for her husband in remote Patagonia, where she finds a man who appears to be her spouse but with a different name and wife. Official Selection of the Cairo and São Paulo International Film Festivals.


Other recent DVD releases:

SLEEPWALKING LAND (Terra Sonâmbula), dir. Teresa Prata, Mozambique

WHAT A WONDEFUL WORLD, dir. Fauozi Bensaïdi, Morocco

Upcoming DVD releases:

MY TIME WILL COME (Cuando Me Toque A Mi)
dir. Victor Arregui, Ecuador
Set to the aching strains of its title song, Arregui’s brooding, poignant film is a poetic ode to Ecuador’s capital city.” -Museum of Modern Art

THOSE THREE (An Seh)
dir. Naghi Nemati, Iran
Naghi Nemati’s assured, poetic debut proves that the Iranian talent factory is still up and running. This austerely shot existential odyssey about three soldiers lost in a snowy wasteland seems tailor-made to illustrate Fellini’s claim that ‘cinema uses the language of dreams.’” -Screen Daily

All profits from the Global Lens film series support international filmmaker grants, educational programming and resources, touring film exhibitions and other philanthropic initiatives and programs sponsored by the Global Film Initiative.
