BEST OF THE FEST: The Line (Čiara)

  •   Peter Bebjak
  •   Slovakia, Ukraine, Czech Republic
  •   Best of the Fest, International Feature Competition, Spotlight: International Film Noir

Winner of the Chicago International Film Festival’s 2017 Silver Plaque for Best Art Direction. Back by popular demand!


Cigarette smuggler Adam is squeezed from all sides in this entertaining, fast-paced thriller. His eldest, unmarried daughter is pregnant, and his gang is pushing him to expand into the narcotics trade—cargo Adam steadfastly refuses to transport. Featuring muscular direction, a savvy screenplay, spectacularly photographed locations, and a propulsive score, The Line is an exemplary crime drama that never lets up.



Penelope R. and Robert Steiner
