"The Cannes Film Festival's single most riveting work... an unforeseen tour de force. A genuinely unnerving and unexpectedly moving experience."--FILM COMMENT

In Day Night Day Night, her much-discussed debut film, Julia Loktev takes a provocative premise and pares it down to its essentials. A 19-year-old girl meets with three masked men in a hotel room. She receives instructions on how to perform her duties as a suicide bomber in Times Square and then is dropped on the street and left to her own devices. The result is a tense character study with a great attention to details and a mesmerizing central performance by newcomer Luisa Williams. (94 mins., 35mm)

Presto—Perfect Sound offers a short portrait of composer and violinist George van Dam performing a Bartok violin sonata. (6 mins., 35mm)
