The Wall (Le Mur)
Dir: Samuel Lampaert
Hong Kong. A multitude of concrete skyscrapers without personality. Inside, cramped studios where the anonymous live among themselves. Until the day when bachelor Chung decides to hang up a picture …
Dir: Juan Pablo Libossart
AMALIMBO is the story of Tipuana, a five year-old girl who experiences the limbo when she tries to pass to “the other side” in her desperate urge to meet again with her recently deceased father. It is a short story that happens in an undefined place, and also in an undefined future.
Dir: Daniel Mulloy
Thousands of men, women and children struggle to get into Europe as a comfortable English family sets out on what appears to be a holiday.
I’m Not From Here (Yo No Soy De Aquí)
Dir: Giedrė Žickytė
An 88-year-old Basque native, Josebe, lives in a nursing home in Chile. She’s obsessed with finding out where the rest of the elder people she lives with comes from. Everyone tells her that they are Chilean, not Spanish as she is. Josebe insists on thinking about her youth in the Basque Country. After a full year living in that house, she struggles to remember that she is living in a nursing home. After 70 years in Chile, she still lively remembers her homeland.
90 Degree North (90 Grad Nord)
Dir: Detsky Graffam
It’s a fact: good Germans wait at red traffic lights. But what do you do when the green man simply won’t appear? Taking place almost entirely on the most pernicious traffic island imaginable, 90 DEGREES NORTH is a humorous, fantastical parable offering an extreme take on the notion of following the rules of a civil society.
