Additionally, “this year’s ‘chapter’ of Karlovy Vary’s ongoing series dedicated to the king of American independent cinema, John Cassavetes, will feature his latest feature as writer/director, Love flow (1984), in which he and his lifelong companion and muse Gena Rowlands represent an unusual sibling pair,” organizers said.
