November 2019 Sundance Now Calendar
Friday, Nov. 1
The French film school La Fémis, which accepts only around 1 percent of applicants to its directing program, has a well-earned reputation as one of the most exclusive institutions of its kind. It promises world-class instruction and facilities to budding filmmakers, provided they speak near-fluent French and can pass its notoriously grueling, capricious, and competitive undergraduate admissions cycle—which, even for the lucky fraction who advance to the third and final round, usually ends in rejection. Claire Simon’s documentary The Competition offers a close look at this process.

Justice Horace Krever (Matt Craven, A Few Good Men, X-Men: First Class) leads an inquiry into the tainted blood scandal. Ben’s (Shawn Doyle, Frequency) quest for revenge intensifies. The people Krever intends to accuse take him to court.
