Altitude Adjustment

2 Episodes

Intense, complex relationships between women play out against the dramatic landscapes of the Alps in these multilayered explorations of power dynamics and female intimacy. Isolated in a snowbound chalet, a teenage girl and her babysitter test the boundaries of their relationship in Mati Diop’s psychosexual chamber piece SNOW CANON. It’s an appropriately heady prelude to Olivier Assayas’s shape-shifting backstage drama CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA, in which Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart blur the line between the personal and professional while on a transformative Alpine excursion.
