The Other One

Somewhere at the end of the world, where the ocean and rocks play their endless games of hide and seek, lives a man. In his mysterious solitude he is not alone. One day the remains of a white whale are washed up on the beach by a storm. In this stranded portrait inspired by H. MELVILLE's masterpiece Moby Dick, the director questions our inner reality and our own gaze on it.

Rain in 2020

Rain in 2020 took LEE Yong-chao seven years to make. It shows how a family copes with the changing situation and what is happening in Myanmar. Amid the pandemic in 2020, a torrential rain caused the family and the entire village to soak in the flooding sewage. Nobody knows when the muddy water will be gone and what will come after the storm.

Zinder

In the town of Zinder in Niger, the poor area of Kara-Kara which used to be the lepers' district, a culture of gang violence reigns. A group of youths is trying to break free from this violence, trying to start a family and make a life for themselves rather than end up in prison. The Zinder-born filmmaker films their daily lives divided between their gangs and their families, witnessing their desire to break free from the cycle of violence which has built their identities.

Three Minutes - A Lengthening

The three minutes of footage explored in this extraordinary film is the only moving images left of the Jewish inhabitants of Nasielsk before the Holocaust. The filmmaker inhabits and examines every frame of the home movie Glenn KURTZ found in his parents' home in Florida, transforming the rare colour footage shot in 1938 Poland into a riveting and haunting essay film narrated by actress Helena Bonham CARTER that unravels the stories hidden in the celluloid.

Soy Libre

Just released from a juvenile detention centre, Arnaud longs for just one thing: unconditional freedom. The energetic young outsider, who grew up trapped between social housing and foster families, constantly struggles to be what he should have been. Free. The film subtly paints an intimate portrait of the filmmaker's younger brother searching for his place in society and provides unique insights into their extraordinary sibling relationship.

Looking for Horses

A film about a friendship between the filmmaker and a fisherman. One lost his mother-tongue because of a stutter, the other lost his hearing during the Bosnian civil war. They look for ways to communicate, while the camera mediates their growing bond, connection between language, friendship and trauma.

Landscapes of Resistance

97-year-old antifascist fighter Sonja was one of the first female partisans in Yugoslavia and a member of the resistance in Auschwitz. By listening to Sonja's stories, we travel through the landscapes of her revolutionary past, as her memories start to intertwine with the filmmakers' own confrontation with the rising fascism in Europe today.

Crotch Stories

You will give birth in pain. Why? Are there other stories? In order to answer these questions, the filmmaker talks to women who professionally assist women giving birth or who have given birth themselves. Captured with a lavish palette of animation and playful stop-motion, Crotch Stories attempts to show how birth in fact does not always rhyme with pain, and thereby transmit a new imaginary: women who are on their way to reclaiming their bodies and their labours.

In Flow of Words

In Flow of Words follows the narratives of three interpreters of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. They interpreted shocking testimonies from witnesses, victims and perpetrators, without ever allowing their own emotions, feelings and personal histories to be present. Contrary to their position at the tribunal, this film places their voices and experiences centre stage.

Eat Your Catfish

Kathryn's neuromuscular disease has left her paralyzed and her family's relations in tatters. Though despair finally overwhelms her, she holds on to see her daughter's wedding. Drawn from 930 hours of footage shot from Kathryn's point of view and without a crew present, this groundbreaking, personal portrait of a family pushed to its breaking point offers a brutally intimate view of disability and in-home caretaking.

International Competition

As far as the imagery can reach, internal fires shall ever be burning and never go out. All kinds of repression, exile, or loss represents one's search for ultimate freedom and the history of rebellion that longs to be awoken. The 15 selected titles from Europe, Americas, Africa and Asia will lead us to dive into mindscapes in the foreign lands.
