Sebastian Brameshuber’s Movements of a Nearby Mountain (Bewegungen eines nahen Bergs) recently received the Grand Prix at the Cinéma du Réel Festival in Paris and the best camera award (to Klemens Hufnagl) at the Diagonale 2019 in Graz. The screening at the Art of the Real will be the film’s US premiere. Celebrating its sixth year, the Art of the Real festival offers a survey of the most vital and innovative voices in nonfiction and hybrid filmmaking. This edition promises yet another vibrant slate of brilliant new works by internationally acclaimed filmmakers and impressive, award-winning debuts from around the world.
In a remote, abandoned industrial site near a centuries-old ore mine in the Austrian Alps, a self-taught mechanic runs a business exporting used cars to his native Nigeria. As he pursues his lonely day-to-day activities with wondrous serenity, past, present and future begin to overlap, and memories of a lost friendship resurface against the backdrop of a mysterious promise of everlasting resources.
