Paris based sales agent MK2 has the following films premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival this year:
Still The Water, by Naomi KAWASE
Cast: Nijiro Murakami, Jun Yoshinaga, Tetta Sugimoto, Miyuki Matsuda, Fujio Tokita, Drama – 116 min – Japan/France – 2014 – Japanese
On the subtropical Japanese island of Amami, traditions about nature remain eternal. During the full–moon night of traditional dances in August, 14–year–old Kaito discovers a dead body floating in the sea. His girlfriend Kyoko will attempt to help him understand this mysterious discovery. Together, Kaito and Kyoko will learn to become adults by experiencing the interwoven cycles of life, death and love.
From the award–winning director of “The Mourning Forest” (Grand Prix, Cannes Film Festival 2007) and “Suzaku” (Camera d’Or, Cannes Film Festival 1997).
Clouds Of Sils Maria, by Olivier ASSAYAS 
Cast: Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, Chloë Grace Moretz, Lars Eidinger, Johnny Flynn, Brady Corbet
Drama – 123 min – France/Germany/Switzerland – 2014 – English
At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena.
She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Chloë Grace Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.
