Excited for the Kiarostamis, Greenaways (the ones I haven't seen already), Kes, Near Dark, tons of others.

The Juniper Tree is the one starring a very young Björk and it's pretty great, bleak and silent and witchy.

Yeah, I recall seeing that on VHS as a youngster. It stays with you, or at least it stayed with me.

Oh wow, they've also got Aves, Keene's short film she made after the Juniper Tree... not sure there's been any way to easily see that until now.

not VERY young! her first album was recorded when she was 11, and she had another five out as an adult by the time she made the movie (at 25)
