    dir. Mads KoudalDenmark2019fiction19'

    A story about an impossible, albeit inevitable, choice as well as a profound bond between a mother and a daughter. Seldom does life write for us scenarios we would dream about. An unwanted official letter changes both characters’ course of life forever. Only one of them is fully aware of what is going to happen, but she is unable to prevent it.

  • The Fantastic

    dir. Maija BlåfieldFinland2020documentary29'

    Cinema is powerful, it affects the senses, stimulates imagination and, above all, influences what we think about the world. The protagonists of this documentary are refugees from North Korea who, on the basis of smuggled foreign films, shaped their vision of reality outside the borders of the closed country.

  • My Name Is Sonila

    dir. Suela BakoFrance, Albania2019fiction20'

    A group of pickpockets robs the passengers of a city bus. Sonila’s purse is also stolen from her bag, which she refuses to ignore. She is convinced that she can recognise the perpetrators if the police help her. Minute by minute, this simple incident is turning into the Kafkaesque absurd.

  • Epitaph

    dir. Victor AsliukBelarus2020documentary28'

    This Belarussian necropolis is a place where some people can meet with dead family members and spend time on contemplation. Few others try to look for the traces of the past there and yet another group engages into family feasting. The faces from tomb photographs, frozen in time, look at all of them.
