Yorgos Lanthimos × 3

To celebrate the North American release of Greek Weird Wave flag-bearer Yorgos Lanthimos’s first solo feature, the scarcely seen Kinetta, The Cinematheque presents a trio of the Oscar-nominated director’s earliest homegrown efforts. These savage, absurdist, sort-of comedies — Kinetta (2005), Dogtooth (2009), and Alps (2011) — heralded the Greek filmmaker as an auteur of idiosyncratic vision and exceptional formal talent, and paved the way for his unlikely (and, blessedly, uncompromised) ascendancy in English-language cinema with The Lobster (2015), The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017), and The Favourite (2018).
