Weekend Watch: Bluebird and Stranger by the Lake

Two-Time SFFS/KRF Filmmaking Grant Winner

Lance Edmands' debut feature, a wintery drama on connectedness and consequences, has its West Coast premiere at SF Indiefest this Saturday, 12:15 pm at Roxie Theatre with a second screening on Sunday, 9:15 pm.

A terrifically solid and sturdy effort across the board, BLUEBIRD is the real deal and a true package of strong collaborators coalescing to make a wonderful debut film.
— Rodrigo Perez, Indiewire

Stranger by the Lake
French Cinema Now 2013

Winner of the Queer Palm and Un Certain Regard Directing Prize at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, Alain Guiraudie erotic thriller returns to SF for a theatrical run at the Clay Theatre and Shattuck Cinemas.

STRANGER BY THE LAKE invites you into its alluring and peaceful world, only to gradually uncover the darkness beneath it. Likewise, the naturalistic performances are extremely calm, even friendly, which makes the events depicted all the more unsettling.
