The Farewell

Friday 1 November

19:00 - 20:40 Trianon 1

After learning their beloved matriarch has terminal lung cancer, her family opts not to tell her about the diagnosis, instead scheduling an impromptu wedding/reunion back in China. Headstrong and emotional writer Billi (Awkwafina) rebels against her parents’ directive to stay in New York and joins the family as they awkwardly attempt to rekindle old bonds, throw together a wedding that only grandma is actually looking forward to, and surreptitiously say their goodbyes. Based on an actual lie, director Lulu Wang (who will attend the festival) has created a wonderfully heartfelt story of family and togetherness.

Deerskin

Another absurdist comedy by Quentin Dupieux, in his unique style: Deerskin. Jean Dujardin shows off his comedic ability as the main character, who goes to extreme lengths to make sure he is the only one looking good in his kind of jacket. Filming the results, Dupieux adds metacommentary to discuss the point of film.
