Buckle up for Opening Night of Cucalorus (and “Convulsions”) with Dmitrii Kalashnikov’s jaw-dropping documentary, which will run you over with absurdist wonders, shocking comedy, and creeping existential dread. Curated entirely from real dash-cam footage in Russian automobiles, this unpredictable mosaic features insane pedestrians, ridiculous accidents, highway forest fires, and even a crashing comet!


Short Before Feature: Fade// Ainhoa Rodríguez :: Conchita, a conservative and septuagenarian woman, returns home after cremating her husband. She is fed up with the suffocating social norms that have surrounded her, so she decides to break free. Meanwhile, a menacing shadow roams the house as the only companion of her solitude.
