Bodies and Souls: A Spotlight on Claire Denis
To celebrate the release of High Life in cinemas, we celebrate the illustrious career and sensual cinema of French filmmaker Claire Denis, from her most well-known works such as Beau Travail (1999) andNénette and Bonnie(1996), to the post-colonial drama White Material (2009), starring Isabelle Huppert, and the bewitching and sinister thriller Bastards (2013).
Double Bill: Peter Strickland
Peter Strickland is back with his latest film In Fabric, and we take this opportunity to delve into the director’s previous works: the nightmarish giallo-horror pastiche Berberian Sound Studio (2012) and the intoxicating erotic and psychological drama The Duke of Burgundy (2014).
MUBI Exclusives: New Strands
MUBI have launched a number of new exclusive strands, which will enjoy a permanent home on the platform. Strands include: Debuts – a celebration of first features from new filmmakers; The New Auteurs – a tribute to emerging artists and filmmakers with distinct visions; Luminaries – works from the established masters of cinema; Brief Encounters – the very best in new short cinema; Undiscovered – adventurous and experimental works that push boundaries and challenge the status quo; Rediscovered – restored classics waiting to be revisited; MUBI Releases – MUBI’s all-rights acquisitions, hand-picked from festivals and released in cinemas.
The New Auteurs - From the Locarno and Rotterdam film festivals comes the beguiling sophomore feature Sophia Antipolis from emerging French auteur Virgil Vernier. A psycho-geographical, state-of-the-nation survey that centers on the residents of a business park caught between the tourist magnets of Nice and Cannes on the French Riviera.
Debuts - Isabella Eklöf's provocative and ruthless debut Holiday (which premiered at Sundance) tells a riveting modern tale set among vacationing gangsters on the Turkish Riviera. With moments as disturbing and uncomfortable as the setting is stunning, this is a bold portrayal of gender, class, power, repression, and violence—as seen from the female perspective.
Luminaries - Lav Diaz’ epic cinema is back on MUBI for the first time since our year-long retrospective dedicated to the renowned auteur. Winner of the Alfred Bauer Prize in Berlin, A Lullaby for the Sorrowful Mystery is an engrossing historical saga on the Philippine Revolution, exploring the foundations and conflicts of Philippine national identity and memory.
Undiscovered - Boris Mitić’s self-described “whistleblowing documentary parody” pursues the personification of "nothing," exploring what can be captured when nothing is happening. In Praise of Nothing was filmed by 62 cinematographers in 70 different countries and is narrated by punk legend Iggy Pop.
