FUGUE (FUGA)

Director: Agnieszka Smoczyńska

After a two-year disappearance, free-spirited Alicja is reunited with her parents, husband and young son despite having no memory of them. Suddenly thrust back into a domestic life she has no recollection of choosing, Alicja struggles to reconcile her new and unfamiliar roles of dependability with the unshackled independence sprung by her recent mental break. With surreal, icy imagery and a seductively hypnotic atmosphere, director Agnieszka Smoczyńska’s sophomore feature burrows into the landscape of Alicja’s mind, excavating the societal burdens and duties expected of women, and whether personal freedom is truly attainable. After entrancing audiences with the 2016 horror-musical fairy tale THE LURE, Smoczyńska returns to AFI FEST with a dizzying psychological puzzle of identity and self-discovery. Mesmerizing from the jaw-dropping first frame to the last, FUGUE features a fiercely complex central performance by Gabriela Muskała, who also penned the film’s twisty screenplay. – Jesse Knight

COLD WAR (ZIMNA WOJNA)

Director: Paweł Pawlikowski

It’s Poland in the late 1950s and a team of musicians and broadcasters are touring the countryside in search of authentic folk music to spread and inspire patriotism. Wiktor, the star pianist and leader of this effort, immediately falls for young Zula, an incredible singer who stands apart from the provincial peasants. When their working relationship blossoms into something more amorous, things become complicated. Their musical success opens many doors, some of which lead to the chance to escape the Iron Curtain. But with the risk so high, the lovers must reexamine what will truly make them happy in a world so fraught with danger. Featuring spectacular musical performances and spellbinding black-and-white cinematography, Oscar® winner Paweł Pawlikowski returns to the film stage with a grand musical opus. – Lane Kneedler

“The Trial of Dali” is a comedic play set in 1948 Spain that depicts the legal troubles of the flamboyant Surrealist, artist Salvador Dali. Dali and his wife and muse Gala, return from the U.S. to Dali’s small home town of Figueres, in his native Spain, at a time when Dali is broken financially and artistically (although he would never admit it). Upon arrival, Dali is served with a summons to a trial prosecuted by a vengeful attorney bent on proving Dali’s art has violated the moral code. Ultimately to win his freedom, prove his relevance as an artist, and save his marriage, Dali must defend himself by defending his art. Be ready to “get surreal,” in this humorous, satirical play.
