Rochester Premiere | Filmmaker in Person. The Nine, Katy Grannan’s first feature film, is an intimate, at times disturbing, view into an America most would rather ignore. Raw, poetic, direct, and unnerving, the film is less a window into a foreign world than a distorted mirror reflecting our own shared existence.

Rochester Premiere | Primal Screen. Paris, the present. A group of adolescents methodically prepares a series of terrorist attacks in the French capital. The very idea of producing a film on a subject like this at a time when the world is struggling with political violence is controversial in itself, but director Bertrand Bonello—who directed the equally contentious 2014 biopic about Yves Saint Laurent—pushes the challenge even further by staging the events with the geometric mise-en-scène of a Stanley Kubrick work or with the aplomb of a George Romero horror story.
