U.S. Dramatic Competition
World premiere of Take Shelter (2011), directed by Jeff Nichols: A working-class husband and father questions whether his terrifying dreams of an apocalyptic storm signal something real to come, or the onset of an inherited mental illness he’s feared his whole life. Post Production Facility: Stuck On On (Austin, Texas) www.stuckonon.com
World premiere of Gun Hill Road (2011), directed by Rashaad Ernesto Green: Greenâ€™s first feature film is a complex family drama, told with gentle humor, sensitivity, and a deep understanding of the environment that defines its inhabitants. Post Production Facility: Offhollywood (New York, New York) www.offhollywoodny.com
U.S. Documentary Premiere
Bobby Fischer Against the World (2011), director Liz Garbus: The documentary exposes the disturbingly high price Fischer paid to achieve his legendary success and the resulting toll it took on his psyche. Rare archival footage, and insightful interviews with those closest to him, expand this captivating story of a mastermindâ€™s tumultuous rise and fall.

World Cinema Dramatic Competition
World Premiere of All Your Dead Ones (Todos Tus Muertos) (2011), directed by Carlos Moreno: The story line is a disquieting allegory, a silent indictment of Colombiaâ€™s ongoing civil war. The imagery and sound illustrate a frightening crisis of social conscience. Tinged with mordant surrealism, the film demonstrates Morenoâ€™s rare ability to transcend genre and his remarkable storytelling vigor within a visual motif. Post Facility: Hangar Films (BogotÃ¡, Colombia) www.hangarfilms.tv
World Premiere of Restoration (2011), directed by Yossi Madmony: Madmonyâ€™s first feature depicts a complex set of frayed character relations for which restoration proves an apt metaphor within the rich texture of modern Israeli society. Post Production Facility: Opus Digital Lab (Tel Aviv Israel)
