Featuring movies the Calgary Underground Film Festival couldn’t make work during its festival dates, Off the CUFF continues with Ali Abbasi’s critically-claimed yet subversive fantasy film, Border.
Based on the short story by John Lindqvist, author of Let the Right One In, Border shares the story of Tina, a border guard who has the ability to smell human emotions and catch smugglers.
During the day, she keeps a close eye on travellers. Off the job, she has a small place surrounded by primal forest and a normal life of family, friends, and work. But when she comes across a mysterious man with a smell that confounds her detection, she is forced to confront disturbing insights about herself and humankind.
Border screens at 7:00pm on February 5, 2019 at the Globe Cinema (617 8th Ave. SW).
