Alina returns to Romania from Germany, hoping to bring Voichita—the only person in the world she loves and was loved by—back to her. But Voichita has found God—and God is a hard lover to be jealous of. Alina wishes to take Voichita away from her remote monastery and back to Germany, but as it comes time to leave, Voichita doesn't seem ready to go. Alina decides to stick around to convince her friend, a small decision that will spiral into dark and disturbing places. The newest film from Palme d'Or winner Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days), Beyond the Hills was inspired by an alleged case of demonic possession in Romania in 2005. With the same unflinching view of his homeland that was on display in his last feature, in Beyond the Hills, Mungiu cements his place as one of the most challenging and vital filmmakers in the world.

Giacometti: Early Works

Giacometti: Early Works

Organized in collaboration with the Giacometti Foundation, Paris, the exhibition explores Giacometti’s prolific life, most of which the artist led in his studio in Montparnasse, through the works of his early period as well his late work, including one unfinished piece. Devoted to Giacometti’s early works, the first part of the exhibition demonstrates the influence of Giovanni Giacometti, the father of the artist and a Swiss Post-Impressionist painter himself, on Giacometti’s output during these years and his role in his son’s development.
