ADVANCE SCREENINGS THIS WEEKEND!

"This recent Spanish Film Festival standout is a powerful reminder that the scars of Spain’s 20th century history are everywhere. Interleaved with the present-day story of Ariadna (Laia Costa), who travels to Burgos in search of a great-grandfather she never knew, THE TEACHER WHO PROMISED THE SEA is a tenderly realised and strikingly well shot film anchored by a fine performance by Eric Auquer." - Jason Blake, LIMELIGHT

On the eve of A SILENCE's release, writer/director Joachim Lafosse and actress Emmanuelle Devos discussed their absorbing psychological drama’s real-life precedents, distinguishing art from prosecution, and much more with Rough Cut Film's Philippa Hawker. Lafosse: "When you buy a ticket to the movies you're there to experience feelings and sensations. And without those feelings there is no genuine thought.”
