With director Jessica Hausner in person
Followed by an opening night party hosted by Mundo at The Paper Factory Hotel
Dir. Jessica Hausner. Austria/Luxembourg/Germany. 2014. 96 mins. U.S. premiere. The 1811 suicide pact between German Romantic writer Heinrich Von Kleist and Henriette Vogel is depicted with deadpan precision and exquisite period detail. Jessica Hausner’s masterful meditation on romance is deeply moving, dryly comic, and philosophical beneath its perfectly realized visual style. Preceded by brouillard—passage #14 (Dir. Alexandre Larose. Canada, 2014, 10 mins. 35mm. New York premiere.) Layering in-camera long takes, Larose condenses the colors and movements of a bucolic landscape into an ecstatic and spectral time-lapsed vision.
