Chasing Reels: a premiere-marathon in Louis Hartlooper Complex with three of the best indiefilms that have never seen the white screen in the Netherlands. No blockbusters, no headliners, but an exciting selection from the grand indie filmscene. Beautiful, good American indiefilms that made an impression at festivals like South by Southwest, Telluride and Sundance and that you will now be able to see in Dutch cinemas for the very first time.
Featuring Transpecos, Una and Hunt For The Wilderpeople.Tickets RSVP
'Hunt For The Wilderpeople'. (Taika Waititi)
The first movie in our indie film marathon is 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople'!
Ricky (Julian Dennison) is a defiant young city kid who finds himself on the run with his cantankerous foster uncle (Sam Neill) in the wild New Zealand bush. A national manhunt ensues, and the two are forced to put aside their differences and work together in this hilarious and heartfelt adventure. Important to remember: 'Find water, get to higher ground, don't get naked'.

Una (Benedit Andrews)
Indiefilmqueen Rooney Mara (brilliant last year alone in Lion, Carol and more) plays Una, a young woman that unexpectedly arrives at an older man's (Ben Mendelsohn; The Dark Knight Rises, Star Wars Rogue One) workplace, looking for answers, the secrets of the past threaten to unravel his new life. Based on a play by David Harrower, this film made a deep impression at filmfestivals as Telluride, Toronto and London where international press praised both Mara and Mendelsohn’s best acting jobs so far.
“Breathlessly entertaining” - Indiewire
“One of the most explosive films of the season” - Los Angeles Times
(presented by SXSW) (US):
Transpecos (Gred Kwedar)
Final of 3 premieres will be Transpecos, featuring Clifton Collins Jr. (Westworld) and Gabriel Luna (True Detective). The film won the audience award at SXSW 2016 and plays at the American border with Mexico.
For three border patrol agents, the contents of one car reveal an insidious plot within their own ranks. The next 24 hours take them on a treacherous journey into the world of the border that could cost them their lives.
Aaron and Bryce Dessner (The National) made the soundtrack.
“I often visit international filmfestivals and often see so many amazing movies that will never screen in Dutch cinemas, I aim to change that with Chasing Reels.”
