Yumen

Yumen combines ghost stories and the "ruin tourism" to form a celluloid psycho-collage of wandering souls, seeking connection to one another and a lost collective history among the frozen remnants of the abandoned oil town of Yumen in China's northwest Gansu Province.

Wuchao Gate

Wuchao Gate is the south gate of Longting Palace in Kaifeng city of China. In front of the Gate is the Wuchao Gate Square, a "Holy Land" for many people. They are engaged in activities that distinguish them from visitors, some worshiping the gods, some praying, and some acting. With different backgrounds and stories, people meet and communicate here. It is where they find spiritual comfort.

The Weight of Life

In the year of 1996, a national weightlifter coach called A-Fu, founded a female teenager weightlifting team with three Bunun girls from the "Taoyuan Tribe". They're either orphaned or raised by a single parent or grandparents. Despite their success in weightlifting, they are confronted with the harsh reality of their family situations, career development and love lives.

Trucker and the Fox

Mahmud Kiani FALAVARJANI is an Iranian film amateur specialising in films featuring trained animals. He works as a truck driver every day but devotes his entire free time to his great passion. When his beloved fox dies, the man becomes depressed and may find consolation in one thing only - finding a similar animal and training it to work on the set of Mahmud's next film. But it is not so easy to catch a fox, not to mention training it.

Spark

Sparks of Fire is the only extant unofficial intellectual periodical from the time of the Great Famine. In the end, 43 people, including the Rightist teachers and students who were connected with the publication, the peasants and the rural cadres who sympathised with them, were arrested and given long prison terms. Among them, three key figures were executed during the Cultural Revolution.

Paldang

When Paldang Dam was built, many farmers lost their farms. Instead, they started organic farming in their land around Han River. In 2008, Korean government announced four River Plans including Paldang. The plan in Paldang organic town is to build bike lanes and a public park instead of farms. It causes serious conflicts among the farmers as they decide if they should fight against the government.

Magdalena

Magdalena tells of the struggle of a traditional midwife whose only daughter is battling with leukaemia and is due to give birth.

Lady of the Lake

Governments – even decades-old military regimes – may come and go but, like many rural communities in Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), the lives of the villagers of Pyun Su on the banks of Moe Yun Gyi lake are pervaded by deeper traditions – above all the lively cult of the nat.

Guardians of Time Lost

They are a group of marginalised young men known as the "thugs of Al Lija neighbourhood", addicted to drugs and involved in devious activities. They define the features of that chaotic neighbourhood in Beirut, and reveal a mysterious world, which carries within its folds the particular complexities of social and political realities in Lebanon.

The End of the Special Time We Were Allowed

This documentary tells the story Sota MASUDA, a young musician who once had a promising career but failed to develop it further. A series of frustrating events led to his suicide. He left a note and a tape that captured the event for director Shingo OTA, one of his friends. OTA uses the footage to piece together the final years of MASUADA's life and imagines what awaited him after death.
