OVERSEAS

Documentary Competition

2019 | Feature Documentary | Tagalog/English | Belgium/France | 90 min.

NEW YORK PREMIERE

In one of many training centers of its kind in the Philippines, a group of women gather to prepare themselves for the life awaiting them overseas as domestic workers in the West. Training under teachers who have returned from similar work abroad, the women learn to enact the housekeeping duties their positions will require of them, while also learning to prepare for the likelihood of mistreatment and abuse that may await them. In her revealing look at the personal sacrifices and abandoned lives of a small group of Filipina workers, director Sung-a Yoon sheds necessary light on the struggle of those risking alienation, heartbreak, and abuse for the means through which to find a better life thousands of miles from home.

EARTH “ERDE”

Air, Land & Sea 

2019 | Feature Documentary | English/German/Hungarian/Spanish/Italian | Austria | 115 min.

NEW YORK PREMIERE

With his eighth feature film in the last decade, prolific Austrian documentarian Nikolaus Geyrhalter examines the tremendous impacts of human activity in the era of the Anthropocene—looking at seven locations across the globe that have hugely transformed the planet through human behavior. With locations ranging from Spanish copper mines and Italian quarries to Canadian tar sands and Californian deserts, Geyrhalter interviews the individuals at the center of each site to ask how they view the immense environmental and technological changes taking place. Moving seamlessly between the global and individual effects in every location, EARTH is an urgent and thought-provoking meditation on the irrevocable change that has already occurred at the hands of humankind.

Directed by Nikolaus Geyrhalter

VARDA BY AGNÈS

World Cinema Documentary 

2019 | Feature Documentary | French/English | France | 115 min.

For her final film, the late Agnès Varda leaves us with a playful, profound, and personal summation of the extraordinary career that earned her the title of godmother of the French New Wave. With her characteristically impish wit and wisdom, the beloved filmmaker and feminist icon leads an insightful and free-associative tour through her six-decade artistic journey—from classics like CLEO FROM 5 TO 7 and VOYEUR up to her more recent, Academy Award-nominated FACES PLACES. Suffused with the people, places, and things she loved, this wonderfully idiosyncratic work of imaginative autobiography is a tender and bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema’s most luminous talents.

Directed by Agnès Varda
