      EVENT DETAILS
      The Load

      Premiering to rapturous reviews in Directors Fortnight at Cannes, Ognjen Glavonis narrative feature debut, The Load, is a taut suspense thriller recalling The Wages of Fear and Sorcerer. During NATOs bombing of Serbia in 1999, Vlada, a truck driver, is hired to undertake a treacherous path across his war-torn country and deliver mysterious cargo. On a journey where friend and foe prove indistinguishable, Vlada comes to realize the horrifying ramifications of his mission. Brilliantly photographed and overwhelmingly atmospheric, The Load signals the arrival of a major talent. Masterful. One of the ten best films of the year. - James Quandt, Artforum Critics Pick! An atmospheric, gripping film. - Glenn Kenny, The New York Times "Four stars. This is one of the years best films. A mesmerizing narrative feature debut." - Matt Fagerhom, RogerEbert.com A brooding thriller. The overtly graphic isnt Glavonics visual style, but rather a cold, more powerful image seepage. - Robert Abele, LA Times Four stars! A masterpiece of suspense, a caustic thriller gorgeously photographed by Tatjana Krstevski. - Mark Rifking, This Week in New York Harrowing. A willful anti-thriller. An impressive new filmmaker. - Jessica Kiang, Variety "An ambitious piece of filmmaking, as thrilling as it is both politically and emotionally serious, and delivered with an injection of genre flourishes." - Rory O'Conner, The Film Stage An austere suspense thriller. - Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
