Chance meetings between strangers spiral out of control in two chilling visions of racial violence and communication breakdown. First, a misunderstanding between three juveniles and an unstable man escalates past the point of no return in Montreal-based Ivorian-Ghananian filmmaker Will Niava’s intense, unflinching, and all-too-familiar Zoo. Its visceral style contrasts with the brilliantly controlled formalism of Austrian master Michael Haneke, whose provocative CODE UNKNOWN unfolds in a series of arresting long takes that trace the devastating fallout of a seemingly minor incident on the streets of Paris.
