PINK (Greece, Alexander Voulgaris, 2006)

SHIRIN (Iran, Abbas Kiarostami, 2008)
Melbourne premiere of a film scandalously omitted from MIFF! This is the latest masterpiece by the great Iranian director – a film like no other, about the act of watching films.

THE BURNT THEATRE (Cambodia/France, Rithy Panh, 2005)
IMDb has only two words to describe this film: ‘documentary’ and ‘war’! Panh is among the key political filmmakers of our time.

AFTERNOON (Germany, Angela Schanelec, 2007)
Angela Schanelec (born 1962) is a part of what has been dubbed the "Berlin School" of the "New German Wave" of the past decade. Alongside filmmakers including Valeska Grisebach and Christian Petzold, Schanelec's films "consistently focus on middle class people drifting through their lives, unable to make decisions that could free them from their constant state of melancholy" (Ekkehard Knörer). A modern adaptation of Chekhov's THE SEA GULL, AFTERNOON is "concerned with both qualities of light and with passages, moments of transition and liminality" (Michael Sicinski).

All films are selected and introduced by PhD student, programmer and blogger André Dias, visitor to Monash from Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal
