Berlin-based filmmakers Anja Dornieden and Juan David González Monroy fashion a poetic and deadpan 16mm work of fanciful nonfiction based on historical attempts to bring back the aurochs, a breed of wild cattle extinct since the early 17th century. Screening with the latest archival wonder from Sergei Loznitsa, an ironic mini-portrait of the galas of Paris’s Palais Garnier in the 1950s and ’60s.
