  • Purely science nonfiction, La Région Centrale is cinema for attention-surfeit sufferers. Confounding the mythical status of the film as being entirely remote (in both time and place, and in its directorial will) was the presence of Snow himself, ensuring the audience that they will never have seen anything like it. The present, speaking of the past, about the future: Snow’s future perfect proposition seemed conceptually tailored to the festival’s multiple grammaticization of time.

  • Made by Michael Snow over the course of five frigid days on a remote Quebec mountaintop, La Région Centrale belongs to a special canon of films that alter your ways of seeing or hearing the world, that revise your understanding of the order of things by nudging you a few inches over from your usual spot on the space-time continuum.
