1. Jean-Baptiste Léonetti, 2011, France, 77mins

    A gravely stylish vision of a dystopian future, Jean-Baptiste Leonetti’s debut feature internalises the seemingly disparate influences of Luc Besson, Jean Luc Godard and Park Chan-wook to fashion a French society run by a mysterious, arbitrary caste system. Protagonist Philippe negotiates the “game” inside an urban machine that turns its victims into hamburgers, and is ultimately forced to choose between his meteoric rise and his marriage.

    Screening 11.30pm, Friday 6th July 2012, Rio Cinema. For more information on the screening, and for how to buy tickets, visit http://www.eastendfilmfestival.com/programme/1824/carre-blanc

  3. Kaspar Hauser, a nineteenth century man who seemingly appeared from nowhere claiming to have had no previous contact with society, is reimagined by director Davide Manuli as an androgynous woman washing up on a Mediterranean island, and starting a war between the Sheriff and the Pusher, both played by Vincent Gallo. A tale of faith, suspicion and flying saucers set to the thudding beats of techno behemoth Vitalic, Kaspar Hauser is the sort of astonishing experience modern cinema rarely manages, a Techno Western in a world of its own.
