The 30th Helsinki International Film Festival – Love & Anarchy treats the audience with two surprise films: Takashi Miike’s BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL and John Cameron Mitchell’s HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES. The festival’s last weekend also brings several reruns of festival favourites to the world’s best audience.

The last weekend of the 30th HIFF screens two surprise films. Longtime festival favourite Takashi Miike’s BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL is the Japanese cult auteur’s acclaimed return to samurai action. A weird love story from Cannes HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES is John Cameron Mitchell’s (Hedwig and the Angry Itch, HIFF 2001, Shortbus, 2006) comedy about punks, aliens and Brits. Nicole Kidman delivers a stellar performance as a stylish ex-punk diva.

Among the several reruns of festival favourites are Agnès Varda and street artist JR’s road trip documentary FACES PLACES, the ”British Brokeback Mountain” GOD’S OWN COUNTRY, festival guest Naoko Ogigami’s CLOSE-KNIT, audience favourite DAVID LYNCH: THE ART LIFE, Kristen Stewart-starrer ghost story PERSONAL SHOPPER and two films about youth struggling with their society’s taboos: LIPSTICK UNDER MY BURKHA and TEHRAN TABOO.

The reruns will be screened on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets to the screenings are on sale now.
