  • Reset is released.

With appearances by composer Nico Muhly, Opera alumna Aurélie Dupont, and designer Iris van Herpen, Reset is a delightfully aesthetic affair from filmmakers Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai, a moving portrait of a landmark moment for one of the ballet’s oldest institutions and one of its brightest new stars, both on the cusp of great transition.

  • The Son of Joseph is released. Eugène Green drops biblical motifs – Abraham and Isaac, Mary and Joseph – into this genuinely contemporary setting as if it were the most natural thing in the world, augmenting them with nods to crime films, Italian Baroque music, a Doisneau photograph, three 17th century paintings and an artificial way of speaking that is anything but current. The characters are positioned within the visual compositions and look directly into the camera, their diction flawless. Whatever needs saying – and that’s a lot – they recite impassively, in declamatory fashion. Along the way, there are jabs at the literature milieu and trendy yuppies. A film where divine seriousness rubs against bizarre comedy, where theology meets caricature, an intriguing film, anachronistic and innovative in equal measure. [Kino Lorber]

Ma is a journey into the visceral and the surreal, interweaving ritual, performance, and the body as sculpture. Role reversal and gender bending leads us to imagine a new ending to this familiar journey, as this virgin mother must not only give birth to our savior, but in the end is challenged to save herself. [Factory 25]
