Karlovy Vary to Fete Borderline Films

Campos, Durkin, Mond to attend Czech fest

MOSCOW – The work of New York indie production company Borderline Films is to be featured in a retrospective at the 48th Karlovy Vary Festival in the Czech Republic.

All the movies made by Antonio Campos, Sean Durkin and Josh Mond — the three filmmakers behind Borderline — will screen during the event, which runs June 28-July 6.

Karl Och, a.d. of a fest that has gained a reputation for indie retros, said Borderline Films: The First Ten Years would open with the shingle’s first picture, the short “Buy It Now” (2005), for which Campos took a prize at Cannes’ Cinefondation sidebar.

The complete works of the trio — regarded as among the most innovative indie filmmakers in the world — will include Campos’ feature debut, “Afterschool,” which bowed in Un Certain Regard in Cannes in 2008; “Martha Marcy May Marlene” (directed by Durkin and produced by Campos and Mond) and “Simon Killer” (directed by Campos and produced by Campos and Mond), which premiered in competition at Sundance last year.

Campos, talking about Paris-set “Simon Killer” at Sundance, remarked on the European influences the filmmakers have absorbed in their work and how that connects to U.S. film culture.

“Paris at night, especially Pigalle, looks like New York in the 1970s,” Campos said. “It is a really exciting film to show at Sundance: An American film with only one American actor in it.”

“Simon Killer,” starring Brady Corbet as Simon and French thesp Mati Diop, was made in conjunction with FilmHaven. IFC Films opens the pic in North American theaters April 5.

The retro will also include a masterclass taught by the trio and open screenings where Campos, Durkin and Mond will each select one of their favorite non-Borderline films.
