Films by Language



Robert Connolly

Five zealous young journos, one of them a Kiwi, ignored every warning and kept their cameras rolling as the Indonesians invaded East Timor in 1975. This intense new political thriller tells why they were silenced.

Big River Man

John Maringouin

Marathon swimmer Martin Strel, attributing his endurance to a diet of horse burgers and alcohol, takes on the Amazon. “[Strel has] so much personality it’s a wonder he fits on the screen.” — NY Times


La terra degli uomini rossi

Marco Bechis

The perilous status of the indigenous Guaranis of Brazil’s Mato Grosso do Sul is revealed to the world in this vividly pictorial environmental/land rights thriller. “Brilliant and subtle.” — Herald Tribune

Eccentricities of a Blond Hair Girl

Singularidades de uma rapariga loura

Manoel de Oliveira

Cinema’s centenarian Manoel de Oliveira (born 1908) transposes a 19th-century tale of romantic pursuit to 21st-century Lisbon, retaining, to rich and strange effect, every anachronistic detail of courtship and social convention.

Embodiment of Evil

Encarnação do demônio

José Mojica Marins

Like some deranged schizophrenic fusion of Romero, Jodorowsky, Lynch and a TV horror host, Brazilian legend José Mojica Marins directs and stars as Coffin Joe on a brutal, bloody quest to find the perfect woman.

Our Beloved Month of August

Aquele querido mês de agosto

Miguel Gomes

Take a summer holiday with this strange and wonderful film. A playful weave of documentary, love story and popular song, set at an annual music festival in the mountains of Arganil, Portugal.
