Dinner and a Movie @ Chalet Edelweiss

Two journeys, two stories….. four lives. In Japan, Nakata sets out on the road to resign from his job. He meets Ellen, a mysterious young woman looking to get out of Tokyo. Together they drive southeast towards the fabled coast of Umikongo. On the other side of the ocean Ellen’s brother, Ben, is headed north along the California coast. He picks up Sarah, who’s hitchhiking from Las Vegas searching for a new life. Ellen’s health deteriorates by the sea. Ben performs a ceremony under the cliffs of Big Sur. And as the road unfolds, four fates collide.

ALL THAT REMAINS is the first feature length by Swiss emerging directors Pierre-Adrian Irlé (25 years old) and Valentin Rotelli (27 years old). As with their previous short-film BIG SUR (33’, 2008), nominated for Swiss Academy Awards Quartz© in 2009, the directors did a nomadic and chronological shooting. They worked closely with the actors to have them improvising under their guidance, revealing the script to them day after day along the road throughout the shooting. With a solid preparation based on the respective biographies of their characters, the actors evolved within the boundaries of the story that was written.

The film will be followed by a Q&A session with the co-director Pierre-Adrian Irle and the actors Travis Shakespeare and Toshi Toda (still to be confirmed).

Entry Dinner & Movie: $20, RSVP please.
