Modest Reception - Paziraie Sadeh

Leyla and Kaveh are the instruments of a cruel and bizarre game. The well-situated couple drive through the mountains distributing plastic bags full of money to every poor and unfortunate person they meet. At first everything goes according to plan as they disdainfully “share the joy” with their shocked “neighbors” while documenting the event via cellphone. They encounter those, however, who refuse the strange gift – and others who end up offending the irresponsible strangers. More

Le sommeil d'or - Golden Slumbers

A nocturnal drive along a rural highway into a city at dawn that is somehow moving in the wrong direction. It is only after a while that you notice that the vehicles are travelling backwards, receding back into the dusk of reality. This mysterious metaphor forms the starting point for a journey into the unknown history of Cambodian film. Nearly 400 films were made in Phnom Penh between 1960 and 1975, only 30 of which survive today. The Khmer Rouge burnt them or allowed them to decay along with many of the country’s studios and cinemas. More

Un mundo secreto

‘María, someday somebody will notice you and realise how special you are …’ these are the words that María notes down in her diary. She also writes herself passionate love letters. But nobody notices how desperate she is. How could they? She is such an unassuming girl and hardly ever speaks. Not even to the boys she often allows to sleep with her, just like that. Afterwards she slaps her face hard. She can’t go on like this. So, instead of celebrating the last day of school with the others, María packs her rucksack, climbs aboard the cross-country bus and travels Mexico. More

Avé

La Bulgarie des faubourgs  Parti de Sofia, Kamen se rend en stop à Roussé, dans le nord de la Bulgarie. Sur la route, il rencontre Avé, une jeune fugueuse un peu paumée de 17 ans, qui lui impose rapidement sa compagnie. A travers cette rencontre, c’est le portrait d’une jeunesse en errance et d’une Bulgarie oubliée de la mondialisation que Konstantin Bojanov nous fait découvrir. Mais le film est également une fine métaphore du passage à l’âge adulte et des sentiments ambivalents que cette phase de vie génère.  More

Soraya, 28, born and raised in Brooklyn, decides to return to live in Palestine, a country that her family was exiled from in 1948. On arriving in Ramallah, Soraya tries to recover the money left in an account by her grandparents but meets with refusal from the bank. Her path then crosses that of Emad, a young Palestinian whose ambition, unlike hers, is to leave the country for good.

Siberian Mammoth - O Mamute Siberiano

This film examines the creation and exhibition of the propaganda film I Am Cuba, a Soviet/Cuban collaboration. It follows Soviet filmmaker Mikhail Kalatosov as he travels to Cuba in the early 1960s to make his film, a vignette drama which failed in both countries and was ressurrected in the West in the 1990s when Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese endorsed Milestone Films' 1993 ancillary release. First-time Brazilian director Vicente Ferraz arrives in Havana to track Kalatosov's ambitious 14-month shoot. More

LANDSCAPE IN THE MIST is a film about the void. It is a film about despair, about the failure of contemporary society. The prodigal father who figures in almost every Angelopoulos film here has evaporated into his mythical essence - leaving his children to become the wanderers in search of him. In the «chaos», two children appear, little Alexandros and his older sister Voula. In order to exorcise their loneliness, they invent a secret universe for themselves, inhabited by their dreams.
