(USA—2006—directed by Julia Loktev)

In a drab, anonymous motel room, a somber and hauntingly shy 19-year-old girl (Luisa Williams) is trained by three masked “handlers” in the rigid, step-by-step preparations of becoming a suicide bomber. Her final destination: Times Square. The debut feature from Cannes and Sundance prize-winning director Julia Loktev is a devastating work of high-powered suspense that straddles the delicate border separating nearly unbearable tension from deep, dark, ironic humor. Eloquent, terrifying and altogether unforgettable, Day Night Day Night is one of the year’s most astonishing, controversial and utterly relevant films, as well as the year’s most audacious and quietly spectacular directorial debut. (94 min.)

“The Cannes festival’s single most riveting work. A genuinely unnerving and unexpectedly moving tour de force.” -Gavin Smith, Film Comment
