Krzysztof Kieslowski Award for Best Feature Film

Juried competition for best international narrative feature.

Ash Is Purest White
China 2018 136 min.

Qiao is in love with Bin, a local mobster. During a fight between rival gangs, she fires a gun to protect him, which earns her five years in prison. Upon her release, she goes looking for Bin to pick up where they left off in this provocative tale of love in a rapidly changing China.

Border
Sweden 2018 108 min.

In this grippingly surreal romantic thriller co-adapted by the author of Let the Right One In from his own work, deformed Tina’s uncanny sense of smell makes her popular at her job in customs—if nowhere else. Then she meets Vore. He’s the right one, but is letting him in dangerously wrong?

Cold War
Poland 2018 90 min.

Wiktor and Zula meet amid the post-war ruins of Poland, Berlin, Yugoslavia, and Paris in this lush romantic drama filmed entirely in black and white. Complicated by politics, their own character flaws, and tragic twists of fate, theirs is an impossible love story for impossible times.

Daughter of Mine
Italy 2018 97 min.

In this study of a familial rather than romantic love triangle set on the Italian island of Sardinia, 10-year-old Vittoria falls under the thrall of a charismatic but troubled young woman to whom she bears a striking resemblance—far more than she does to the mother who has so lovingly raised her.

Pity
Greece 2018 99 min.

The protagonist of this black-as-tar comedy from Greece is a man who feels happy only when he is unhappy—a man with a need for pity so bottomless that he’s willing to do anything to elicit it from others. Such is the absurd life of the Lawyer, for whom the world is not quite cruel enough.

Shoplifters
Japan 2018 121 min.

There’s honor among thieves. But there isn’t always justice. Renowned Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda’s piercing, fiercely tender portrayal of a poor but loving family of petty criminals scraping by on borrowed time won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
