The Invisible Witness (Il testimone Invisibile)

Stefano Mordini / 2019, Italy
97min / digital (at your home!)

A locked-room mystery with a twist: A slickly successful businessman wakes up next to his dead lover and becomes the chief suspect. His defense lawyer’s never lost a case, but can even she help him? “When I woke up, the nightmare began.” So begins the account of Adriano Doria (Riccardo Scamarcio), a wealthy Italian entrepreneur, describing the murky events of the worst night of his life, when he discovers himself in a resort hotel room with a nasty cut on his forehead and the lifeless body of his young mistress, Laura (Miriam Leone), lying on the floor amidst a pile of scattered banknotes. Though he protests his innocence, Adriano is the obvious prime suspect. With just hours to go before his arrest, he arranges a meeting with Virginia Ferrara (Maria Paiato), a notoriously tough attorney who has never lost a case, to plan his defense strategy and find evidence to exonerate him. Largely told in flashback, this noirish thriller from director Stefano Mordini recreates the days of intrigue that lead up to that terrible night as guilt-ridden Adriano, still in love with his wife, tries to break off the affair with Laura while on a clandestine trip to the mountainous Trentino region—until fate intervenes and forever alters their lives. As more facts are coaxed out by Virginia, the characters’ motivations begin to blur until no one is quite who they first seemed, leading to a pulse-pounding conclusion that will leave audiences guessing until the final shot. (SIFF 2019) In Italian with English subtitles.

We Are Little Zombies

Makoto Nagahisa / 2019, Japan
120min / digital (at your home!)

When four young orphans—Hikari, Ikuko, Ishi, and Takemura—first meet, their parents’ bodies are being turned into dust, like fine Parmesan atop a plate of spaghetti Bolognese, and yet none of them can shed a tear. They are like zombies; devoid of all emotion. With no family, no future, no dreams, and no way to move forward, the young teens decide that the first level of this new existence involves salvaging a gaming console, an old electric bass, and a charred wok from their former homes—just enough to start a band…and then conquer the world. Tragedy, comedy, music, social criticism, and teenage angst are all subsumed in this eccentric cinematic tsunami. In Japanese with English subtitles.

“A hyperstylized, hyperactive and hyper-fun movie spectacular. No pulsating, psychedelic, pop-punk phantasmagoria ought to be as moving and smart.” Jessica Kiang, Variety

“A rainbow-colored, RPG-inspired scream into the abyss. A riotous debut feature.” Emily Yoshida, Vulture

“Sometimes, a movie comes along that’s so jarring, so visually explosive, and so utterly madcap that you can’t help but fall in love with it.” Chris Evangelista, Slash Film

Tito

Grace Glowicki / 2019, Canada
70min / digital (at your home!)

Tito is trapped. With long black hair, greasy sideburns, and an emergency whistle dangling from his neck, he is so stricken with fear that he's developed a hunch in his back. Any attempt to venture into the outside world is met with the threat of elusive predators who hunt him relentlessly. Starved for food and security, Tito's terrorized existence threatens to overwhelm him - until the sudden arrival of a cheerful intruder, offering breakfast and protection... Tito is a vision of predation, friendship, and fear, told through a wildly inventive and expressive new lens.

"One of the boldest artistic statements of year" Scott Macaulay, Filmmaker Magazine

“'Tito' is an instant classic of acting." Richard Brody, The New Yorker

"Visionary." Eric Kohn, IndieWire
