  • Futuro Beach (Praia do Futuro)

    April - Futuro Beach (Praia do Futuro)

    Beginning April 10. Donato works as a lifeguard at a spectacular but treacherous beach in Brazil; Konrad is an ex-military thrill-seeker from Germany vacationing with a friend. After Donato saves Konrad from drowning, but fails to save his other friend, initial sexual sparks give way to a deeper, emotional connection. Donato decides to leave everything behind to travel back to Berlin with Konrad. “Futuro Beach is part of a welcome wave of European and South American films that center on gay characters, yet deal with universal themes and offer a certain sensibility that would please any art-house enthusiast… Aïnouz ends his film with a poetic flair that feels right. You have to just let it wash over you, like the waters of a familiar beach.” -David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle

    April - The Salt of the Earth

The outward one may have literally taken him to the furthest corners of the Earth and resulted in the stunning images the film features, but it is the inward journey that paralleled it that completely holds our attention.” -Kenneth Turan Los Angeles Times
