Among the Special Screenings added are Laurent Bécue-Renard’s documentary Of Men And War, Kazakh director Adilkhan Yerzhanov’s The Owners, Tony Gatlif’s Géronimo and Pablo Fendrik’s El Ardor. The latter is a Participant PanAmerica backed movie about a mysterious man who emerges from the Argentinian rainforest to rescue the kidnapped daughter of a poor farmer after mercenaries murder her father and take over his property. Jury member Gael Garcia Bernal stars with Alice Braga.

The festival runs May 14-25, Deadline reported.
