In this wistful comic charmer from Bent Hamer (Kitchen Stories; O’Horten) a recent divorcee must escort Norway’s standard kilo to a conference in Paris, where it will be weighed according to international measures. But how can one take stock of such things, when our lives and loves are so finite in comparison?

Imagine being at the cutting edge of the electonic music scene in Paris at the beginning of the 90s, rubbing shoulders with Daft Punk, dedicating your life to shaping the sound… That’s where Paul (de Givry) finds himself, a DJ on the up, riding a wave that takes him… right back to where he started, in fact. Eden is a palpably authentic exploration of a fascinating musical subculture, detailing the shifts and grooves that whisked the EDM scene from "in crowd" cult to global mainstream dominance. But not without cost: not every DJ became a star, and some, like Paul, lost a decade without noticing how life is slipping through his fingers.

Music by: Daft Punk, Joe Smooth, Frankie Knuckles, Terry Hunter, MK…

"Like Breaking Bad in real life," (Newsweek), Cartel Land plunges us into the heart of darkness, the front lines of Mexico’s narco wars, where the Knights Templar wreak havoc on anyone who opposes them, and into Arizona’s "Cocaine Alley", where paramilitaries vainly attempt to bolster the border patrols.

Winner of the awards for Best Canadian Film and Best BC film at VIFF 2014, and subsequently named the Best BC Film by the Vancouver Film Critics Circle and at the LEO awards, Violent is the debut feature from Andrew Huculiak, drummer for the Vancouver-based band We Are the City. In Bergen, Norway, Dagny (the incandescent Dagny Backer Johnsen), sets out on her life’s journey, and feelings of togetherness and isolation, love and solitude rise to the surface.
