A group of 13-year-old friends armed with sticks gather for a Capture the Flag game in the woods. For them, the weapons are real and the game is deadly serious as they form allegiances, stage rebellions, and discover treacheries that blur fantasy and reality. Ages 13+

Greece | 2012 | 87 minutes | Thanos Anastopoulos

I Used to Be Darker

USA | 2013 | 90 minutes | Matthew Porterfield

A quietly devastating, music-infused family drama that traces the unraveling of a marriage through casually loaded conversations, elegantly framed hangout sessions, and cathartic musical performances (including two full-length original songs) by real-life troubadours Kim Taylor and Ned Oldham.

Imagine

Poland | 2012 | 105 minutes | Andrzej Jakimowski

Improvement Club

USA | 2013 | 98 minutes | Dayna Hanson

A hybrid narrative film with doses of mockumentary, musical comedy, and dance tracing a rag-tag Seattle performance group’s attempt to expose the American Revolution’s fatal flaws.

In the Fog

Germany | 2012 | 128 minutes | Sergei Loznitsa

In the Name Of

Poland | 2013 | 101 minutes | Malgoska Szumowska

The magnetic Andrzej Chyra (Decalogue IV, Katyn) plays Father Adam, a lonely but loving and kind priest in the Polish countryside struggling with his sexuality in this artfully rendered, unpredictable, and emotional film.

In the Shadow

Czech Republic | 2012 | 106 minutes | David Ondricek

Set in Cold War Prague as the Soviets tightened their grip on Czechoslovakia, this suspenseful noir crime drama follows an honest cop whose jewelry heist investigation is taken over by State Security. Czech Oscar® submission.
