OVID’s May Releases: Jill Li’s “Lost Course,” Marco Bellocchio’s “Devil in the Flesh,” Resnais & Schoendoerffer Restorations, the Films of Eugenio Polgovsky, Dance Camera West Festival… & more!
OVID.tv, the curated streaming destination for documentary and art-house films from around the world, announces its wide-ranging selection of films coming in May.
In 1988, nearly a decade after leaving the US for France, renegade filmmaker Robert Kramer returns. “Back,” he emphasizes. Not “home.” To try to understand the contemporary United States, he decides to travel the entire length of Route 1, from the Canadian border to Key West, filming all the way for five months. ROUTE ONE/USA was shot more than 30 years ago, but it feels remarkably contemporary in its portrayal of many of the racial, social, and economic challenges America continues to face.
