October 18–27
The first feature of celebrated international auteur Yorgos Lanthimos takes place in a desolate Greek resort town where three tenuously connected people are motivated by mysterious impulses. A plain-clothes cop pursues triple passions for cars, tape recorders, and Russian women; a lonely, lovesick clerk works as a part-time photographer; and a hotel maid aspires to be an actress through unconventional methods. Never before released in the United States, this darkly comic and insinuatingly hypnotic film comprises the extraordinary debut from Lanthimos, whose first three films (Kinetta, Dogtooth, The Alps) defined the Greek New Wave before shifting to English-language films, including Academy Award nominees The Lobster and The Favourite. A Kino Lorber release. 

See a double feature of Kinetta with Dogtooth on Saturday, October 19.
