World cinema’s champions (like the Criterion Collection) finds ways to embrace alternative voices from a wider variety of filmmakers; case in point, Euzhan Palcy. I had never heard of this filmmaker until I saw this recent “Closet Picks” on Criterion’s YouTube Channel.

You’ll want to do yourself a favor and get familiar with Palcy’s canon; she’s a remarkable filmmaker and doesn’t really get any kudos in the US indie or mainstream scene.
