Cork International Film Festival Film Club 2021 Presents:
KONTORA + Q&A
Online Tuesday 15 June 7pm, corkfilmfest.org
“…Kontora delivers high-gloss monochrome visuals, strong performances and a layered narrative that wavers between past and present, realism and magical realism, straight family drama and poetic allegory.” – The Hollywood Reporter
For its CIFF Film Club season finale, Cork International Film Festival (CIFF) is delighted to present the premiere of the award-winning Kontora on Tuesday 15th June at 7pm. Available to watch on CIFF’s Digital Festival Platform from Tuesday 15th to Friday 18th June, film fans can immerse themselves in this mesmerizing drama which will be followed by a Q&A with director Anshul Chauhan. Following this screening, CIFF Film Club will take a short break over the summer and return in September.
After her grandfather dies, Sora retraces the diary written by him during World War II and begins to search for a mysterious treasure buried in the local woods. Meanwhile, a mute backwards-walking homeless man appears in the town and may be the catalyst to repairing the broken relationship between Sora and her father.
The screening will be followed by a recorded Q&A with director Anshul Chauhan, hosted by CIFF Programme Manager Si Edwards.
Winner of the Grand Prix Best Film Award at Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival (POFF) 2019.
