The Fits

Dir. Anna Rose Holmer
With Royalty Hightower, Alexis Neblett, Da'Sean Minor

2015, 72min, DCP

 

A tour-de-force of movement and mood, the mesmerizing feature debut from Anna Rose Holmer deploys lush, dizzying surrealism to portray a girl’s anxious initiation into adolescence. Entranced by the power and grace of the older girls on the dance team, eleven-year-old Toni eagerly joins the dance troupe at her community center—but things take a sinister turn when, one by one, they begin succumbing to a mysterious illness.

 
Picnic at Hanging Rock

Dir. Peter Weir
With Rachel Roberts, Anne-Louise Lambert, Vivean Gray
1975, 115min, DCP

 

Peter Weir put the Australian New Wave on the map with this hypnotic adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s classic novel in which the mystery of what happened to three schoolgirls who disappeared during a picnic on Valentine’s Day, 1900 haunts a community. Suffused with dreamlike dread, this spectrally beautiful, enigmatic tale of Victorian repression continues to tantalize.
