Third Horizon Film Festival, in its sixth iteration this year, is a leader in the exhibition and discussion of filmmaking and other works about the Caribbean. The 2022 festival's overarching theme was to uncover film practices probing alternative memory, subjectivities, and non-linear time structures.
The latest two films of Cambodia-born filmmaker Rithy Panh, Everything Will Be OK (2022) and Irradiés (2020), are premiering in North America at MoMA, as part of the first-ever retrospective of his 30-year-long career.
The film follows Ganapathy (Karuththadaiyaan) and his son, Velu (Chellapandi), whom he picks up from school and forces to accompany him on a bus to bring back his estranged wife from her mother's place.
El Gran Movimiento, the narrative focuses on a group of miners from the rural town of Huanini who walk for seven days with the hope of finding a stable source of income in the capital city of La Paz.
The film traces the directors personal artistic journey after coming to terms with an unseeming end to a toxic relationship during her young-adulthood.
