  • A Letter to Uncle Boonmee

    2009. Thailand/Great Britain/Germany. Directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Made prior to the director’s 2010 Palme d’Or–winning feature Loong Boonmee raleuk chat (Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives), this short evokes the phantom history of Nabua, a city in northeastern Thailand, via a letter to a beloved uncle. In Thai; English subtitles. 17 min.

  • Madam Butterfly

    2008. Italy/Taiwan/France. Directed by Tsai Ming-Liang. With Pearlly Chua. Created as part of the international Twenty Puccini Project, Tsai’s largely improv-ized piece follows Madam Butterfly into a chaotic Kuala Lumpur bus terminal. In Malay; English subtitles. 36 min.

  • Cry Me a River

    2008. China/Spain/France. Directed by Jia Zhangke. With Zhao Tao, Hao Lei, Guo Xiaodong, Wang Hongwei. This perfect gem, shot in the city of Suzhou, is Jia’s homage to the Chinese classic Springtime in a Small Town (1948). When four former classmates (two ex-couples) meet to celebrate an old professor’s birthday, youthful dreams and attractions are met by the reality of grown-up responsibilities and tradition. In Mandarin; English subtitles. 19 min.

  • Lost in the Mountains

    2009. South Korea. Directed by Hong Sang-soo. Hong rarely works in the short format, but this story of a writer visiting a friend and former lover is a treasure trove of the director’s trademark wry humor and brutal honesty. In Korean; English subtitles. 30 min.
