Horses of God

Morocco | 2012 | 115 minutes | Nabil Ayouch

Best Director – Nabil Ayouch: SIFF 2013 Golden Space Needle Awards

An intimate portrait of three young boys growing up on the outskirts of Casablanca. Critically acclaimed at Cannes, this film is a major achievement by one of North Africa's most important filmmakers.

House With a Turret

Ukraine | 2012 | 81 minutes | Eva Neymann

This b&w wartime drama unfolds in Soviet Russia as an eight-year-old boy travels back to Ukraine from Moscow with his sick mother. Eva Neymann's touching second film creates a stunning visual journey into a country covered in snow and left poor by war.

The Hunt

Denmark | 2012 | 111 minutes | Thomas Vinterberg

Mads Mikkelsen won the Best Actor prize at Cannes for his performance as an innocent man accused of child molestation in this ferociously powerful new film by Thomas Vinterberg (The Celebration). 

I Declare War

USA | 2012 | 94 minutes | Jason Lapeyre, Robert Wilson

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+

I Kori (The Daughter)

Greece | 2012 | 87 minutes | Thanos Anastopoulos

Reeling from her father’s disappearance during Greece’s recent financial meltdown, 14-year-old Myrto kidnaps the son of her father’s former business partner in this claustrophobic drama.

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

In this remarkable and captivating film, a young blind man who can envision the landscape through which he walks takes a similarly afflicted woman under his wing, and they venture into the beautiful (and perilous) streets of Lisbon.

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. Loosely based on the making of director Dayna Hanson’s real-life performance, "Gloria’s Cause," this film is gorgeously shot by award-winning local cinematographer Ben Kasulke.

In the Fog

Germany | 2012 | 128 minutes | Sergei Loznitsa

In this eerie, dreamlike WWII drama, a partisan suspected of being a traitor is apprehended and taken out into the woods to be executed—but as the night fog closes in, the difference between darkness and light (and innocence and guilt) becomes ever more murky.

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.
