–First up is Bacurau, Kleber Mendonça Filho and Juliano Dornelles’ Brazillian Weird Western film that won the Jury Prize award at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.
–Next is this year’s Sundance darling Never Rarely Sometimes Always, Eliza Hittman’s American-British drama that took home the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival.
–And last but not least is Vitalina Varela, Pedro Costa’s Portuguese drama that won the Golden Leopard at the 2019 Locarno Film Festival.
Then at 3:15 p.m. EST / 12:15 p.m. PST, Clint and Scout will speak with independent filmmaker Penny Lane as they revisit her works, specifically 2013’s Our Nixon, 2016’s Nuts!, 2018’s The Pain of Others, and 2019’s Hail, Satan?.
