Visage (Face), Tsai Ming-Liang, France, Taiwan, Netherlands, and Belgium, 2009 (so lucky those that live in Sydney and will be able to watch it fast…)

To check the many movies in the fest go here where you will find that the fest organized all the movies in quite an interesting way, as you can program your visit to the fest according to what you feel like watching. For example, Give Me a Kiss, Make Me Laugh, Push Me To The Edge, etc.
