FilmWeek Marquee: ‘Avatar: The Way of Water,’ ‘Bardo: False Chronicle Of A Handful of Truths,’ ‘Little Nicholas: Happy As Can Be’ and ‘The Runner’

Published December 16, 2022 at 10:27 AM PST
Daniel Gimenez Cacho stands on the dance floor in a crowded club. He wears a light blue button-up shirt with long sleeves. His arms are crossed over the front of his body at the wrists as he bends slightly forward. His hands reach up towards his face, fingers spread out. Cacho's eyes are closed and his mouth is opened slightly. He seems to be dancing. His hair is gray and shaggy, falling loosely below his ears. Cahco has a gray beard that is short but untrimmed. The crowd surrounding him are men and women of different ages, wearing colorful clothing all dancing, some with partners and some by themselves. The back wall is lit up with orange and purple lights with two white beams of light flanking each side shining towards the ceiling.
