Shoplifters

dir. Hirokazu Koreeda

Drama / Crime / International // 2018 // 121 min. // Japanese with English subtitles

A family of small-time crooks take in a child they find outside in the cold, leading to a series of revelations about the family’s deepest-held secrets. Directed by Japanese film legend Hirokazu Koreeda, Shoplifters is Japan’s 2019 submission for Best Foreign Film.

Peter Travers of Rolling Stone: “This soft-spoken, cinematic treasure about a family of thieves highlights the quietly devastating artistry of Japanese master Hirokazu Kore-eda. It's impossible to experience the deep-seated compassion of this film and not be moved to tears.”

Liyana

dir. Aaron Kopp & Amanda Kopp

Documentary/Animation // 2018 // 77 min.  // English

Under the guidance of acclaimed South African storyteller Gcina Mhlophe, five orphaned children from Swaziland collaborate to create a collective fairytale drawn from their darkest memories and brightest dreams.

The children’s real and imagined worlds begin to converge, and they must choose what kind of story they will tell - in fiction and in their own lives.

This genre-defying film weaves an original animated hero’s journey with poetic documentary scenes to create an inspiring tale of perseverance. LIYANA is a tribute to creativity, the strength of the human spirit, and the healing power of storytelling.

Critically acclaimed and executive produced by award-winning actress Thandie Newton, LIYANA has won more than 25 jury and audience awards and screened at more than 80 film festivals around the world.
