Composition
Before Sandstorm

Before Sandstorm

In the Tengger desert in northwest China, laborers press bunches of straw into the sand in an attempt to combat desertification and sandstorms. On this vast expanse, their work looks like a Sisyphean task.
Mud

Mud

An impressionistic black-and-white portrait of a Russian health spa. Bureaucratic complexities and salutary health benefits coalesce in this apparent allegory for a complex society rooted in rules, prohibitions, and the illusion of security.
Signed
The latest films by the most interesting contemporary filmmakers whose filmographies we highly appreciate, and for whose work we wait with excitement.
