The Woman Who Left, by Lav Díaz

Yourself and Yours, by Hong Sang-soo
A must; nobody can leave the Festival without watching the last of Hong Sang-soo. This melancholic humor that characterizes the director of Woman in the Beach is part again of a new story that combines alcohol, film directors and divided personalities.

Gushing Prayer, by MasaoAdachi
Masao Adachi was the most provoking director of the festival. Almost 60 years making films are proof of his status of controversial and political figure within the cinema and the Japanese culture. Gushing Prayer shows his most sexual profile when he depicts a group of teenagers discovering their bodies, in the middle of turbulent times.

Destruction Babies, by Mariko Tetsuya
Mariko Tetsuya strips the everyday violence of the young culture and the morbidity in social networks. A man whose only purpose is wandering the streets starting fights. His brother follows him and a teenager takes advantage of the situation to get cyber followers. Dark, cynical, violent and reflexive; it is a great option to end the 31st edition at the top.
At 23.20 pm - AMB 2
