The Wall

 

Inside everyone lies a truth only the wilderness can reveal. In The Wall, the unnamed lead character (Martina Gedeck) is exploring the beautiful Austrian mountain landscape when she suddenly finds herself cut off from civilization by an impossibly high and unreasonably strong invisible wall. Based upon Marlen Haushofer’s acclaimed feminist novel, the film explores the despair of isolation and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.

The Wall

 

Surrounded by a gorgeous environment that most people want to escape to, she can only think of escaping from it. She finds that virtual imprisonment reverses priorities in an instant. Together with her faithful dog Lynx, she begins to explore her surroundings and come to terms with her new world. It is a difficult task indeed, to accept being cut off from all human contact. Forced to look inward, she begins a journey of spiritual awakening and transcendence. In a world untouched by civilization’s controlling hand, she realizes that the only way out is to venture deeper in.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

Based on the bestselling series by Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones tells the story of an extraordinary teenager’s quest to save her mother. Clary Fray (Lily Collins) is living an ordinary life in New York City—until her world is rocked by a pair of dramatic revelations. First she discovers that she is a descendant of the Shadowhunters, a hidden force of half-human, half-angel warriors sworn to protect our world from demons. Then she discovers that her mother Joceyln (Lena Headey) has been kidnapped by a man feverishly searching for the Mortal Cup, a powerful artifact in Jocelyn’s possession. Clary realizes that she must take drastic action if she hopes to save her mother and connect with her heritage.

They introduce her to a dangerous alternate New York called Downworld, filled with demons, vampires, werewolves, and all manner of threatening monsters. Together they must fight their way through a maze of danger, greed, and betrayal if they hope to rescue Jocelyn and recover the Mortal Cup.
