Writer-director Giuseppe Tornatore has replaced 48 minutes of footage in his autobiographical Oscar winner for Best Foreign Film (1989), a tribute to the love of movies and, well, love. For the first time in 30 years, an acclaimed film director (Jacques Perrin) returns to the small Italian village where he grew up. Revisiting the bittersweet past, he reconnects with poignant memories of his youth--as a precocious, movie-loving kid who develops a friendship with a crusty but kind-hearted film projectionist (Philippe Noiret), and then as a lovesick teenager who courts a blond beauty (Brigitte Fossey).
Most of the added footage reveals what happened to Perrin's lifelong love as he meets up with Fossey for the first time since their adolescent romance. Even if the exploration of their missed opportunities feels slightly expository, their reconnection deepens the film's resonance of longing and regret. A prime cut.
KATE BOWMAN (Jocelin Donahue) is a straight-laced, by-the-books social worker who finds herself plunged into a world of supernatural terror while investigating a series of deaths where people died in their sleep. The victims all reported being terrorized by a dark entity that paralyzed and tormented them, before eventually killing them. Kate is joined in this quest by EVAN (Jesse Bradford) an artist who is slow to believe that something supernatural is occurring.
Feeding Evan’s doubt is DR. SYKES (Lori Petty) an expert in sleep disorders. She’s convinced the victims all suffered a common but frightening sleep ailment called sleep paralysis. Dr. Sykes assures Kate and Evan that while sleep paralysis is scary, it’s not dangerous. But soon, Kate is approached by HASSAN DAVIES (Jesse Borrego) an eccentric doctor who was discredited for his unorthodox practices and beliefs. Hassan informs Kate that the evil entity haunting people’s nightmares is very real. Even worse, now that Kate has started studying it, she has opened herself up to the dark entity. Belief is the doorway that lets it find its victims.
Kate tries to brush off Hassan’s dire warning, but she soon finds herself falling victim to the dark entity she’s been investigating. And by talking about it to her family and friends, she’s caused them to start to believe.
As the terrifying entity stalks Kate’s friends and loved ones, she realizes that she’s brought death to the people around her. Now, she and Evan must fight to stay awake and get to the truth, in order to stop the nightmare she’s unleashed from claiming them all.

Creative Director, Luca Ceccarelli says, “Our mission is to bring the best of the newest Italian films to Santa Fe. It can feel like we keep you guessing about our schedule until the last minute, but that reflects the nature of the negotiations we need to make with our foreign distributors, where sometimes there may not even be USA rights in place yet. Stay tuned for our ‘surprise screening,’ as it can only be announced after Cannes Film Festival & Market.”
The Colorado, an epic film about North America’s wildest river, will have its New Mexico premier at the Jean Cocteau Cinema. Long-time Santa Fe resident William deBuys has co-written the script. Directed by Murat Eyuboglu, the soundtrack of the film is scored by five critically acclaimed composers—William Brittelle, Glenn Kotche, Shara Nova, Paola Prestini, and recent Pulitzer and Grammy winner John Luther Adams —and performed by Grammy-laureate vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth, percussionist Glenn Kotche (of Wilco), and cellist Jeffrey Zeigler (formerly with the Kronos Quartet).
For five million years the Colorado has carved some of the most majestic landscapes on the planet. It has also become the lifeline of a vast portion of North America, providing the water that sustains nearly forty million people, half a dozen major cities, and an immense agricultural empire. Because of these demands, the river is so overused and overpromised that it no longer flows to the sea or nourishes its delta. Placing the ecology of the river within a rich social context, The Colorado journeys through the prehistoric settlement of the region, the period of European exploration, the dam-building era, modern industrial agriculture and immigration, and the impacts of climate change.
