A Coffee in Berlin
Premiere: Friday, July 25 • NR • Comedy / Foriegn • 88 min

GFC Exclusive

Director/writer Jan Ole Gerster's wry and vibrant feature debut, A COFFEE IN BERLIN, which swept the 2013 German Oscar Awards, paints a day in the life of Niko, a twenty-something college dropout going nowhere fast. Niko lives for the moment as he drifts through the streets of Berlin, curiously observing everyone around him and oblivious to his growing status as an outsider. Then on one fateful day, through a series of absurdly amusing encounters, everything changes: his girlfriend rebuffs him, his father cuts off his allowance, and a strange psychiatrist dubiously confirms his 'emotional imbalance'. Meanwhile, a former classmate insists she bears no hard feelings toward him for his grade-school taunts when she was "Roly Poly Julia," but it becomes increasingly apparent that she has unfinished business with him. Unable to ignore the consequences of his passivity any longer, Niko finally concludes that he has to engage with life. Shot in timeless black and white and enriched with a snappy jazz soundtrack, this slacker "dramedy" is a love letter to Berlin and the Generation Y experience.

Venus In Fur
Premiere: Friday, July 25 • R • Drama • 96 min

GFC Exclusive 

Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway play by David Ives, which itself was based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's groundbreaking novella, VENUS IN FUR is the latest film from master filmmaker Roman Polanski. Alone in a Paris theater after a long day of auditioning actresses for his new play, writer-director Thomas (Mathieu Amalric) complains that no actress he's seen has what it takes to play the lead female character: a woman who enters into an agreement with her male counterpart to dominate him as her slave. Thomas is about to leave the theater when actress Vanda (Emmanuelle Seigner) bursts in, a whirlwind of erratic - and, it turns out, erotic - energy. At first she seems to embody everything Thomas has been lamenting. She is pushy, foul-mouthed, desperate and ill-prepared - or so it seems. When Thomas finally, reluctantly, agrees to let her try out for the part, he is stunned and captivated by her transformation. Not only is Vanda a perfect fit (even sharing the character's name), but she apparently has researched the role exhaustively, learned her lines by heart and even bought her own props. The likeness proves to be much more than skin-deep. As the extended "audition" builds momentum, Thomas moves from attraction to obsession until, with Vanda taking an ever more dominant role, the balance of power shifts completely.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) Rerelease
Premiere: Thursday, July 24 • R • Horror • 83 min

GFC Exclusives

MPI/Dark Sky Films, one of the leading distributors of independent and genre films, and Gateway Film Center are partnering on the release of a restored version of Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE.

The new version of the film will be released with a brand new 4K transfer, roughly four times the resolution of today’s more commonly used 2K for cinema. This is the only transfer of THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE to go back to the original 16mm A/B rolls, the actual film that rolled through the cameras.

"This 40th anniversary restoration is absolutely the best the film has ever looked. The color and clarity is spectacular, displaying visual details in the film that were never before perceptible. The newly remastered 7.1 soundtrack breathes new life and energy into the film. I am very much looking forward to audiences experiencing this film as they never have before," said Tobe Hooper.

If you haven't seen it, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE tells the story of five friends visiting their grandfather's house in the country.  When they arrive they are hunted and terrorized by a chain-saw wielding killer and his family of grave-robbing cannibals.
