One of contemporary cinema’s most astute chroniclers of the intricacies of social interaction—often at its messiest and most awkwardly uncomfortable—German auteur Maren Ade navigates complex emotional terrain with deadpan delicacy. By turns wryly funny and profoundly piercing, her films—including her remarkably assured debut THE FOREST FOR THE TREES and international breakout EVERYONE ELSE—display a unique mastery of tone and nuanced understanding of human relationships that elicits laughs and cringes in equal measure.
