Tradition / Zhanuzak Mamytov / Kyrgyzstan 2019 / 13 min. – A little boy’s crotch becomes the target of sneers and amusement when he pees in a rusted bus after a game. Rumours start circulating and these rumours push him to the edge of the community. The reason for this exclusion is tradition and traditions must be followed.
Black Box / Can Deniz Atici / Turkey 2020 / 14 min. – Selin is a talented 11 year old violinist who lives with her mother in Istanbul. She’s preparing for an important exam. Her situation is complicated though because she also needs to take care of the entire household. What’s in the black box and how long can the secret remain hidden?
Altitude / Nicole Scherer / Germany 2019 / 11 min. – Sarah and Thomas set off on a mountain hike, however their trip isn’t idyllic as the weather makes the situation difficult and they both soon become lost in the woods and within/to each other. What is reality and what is just an illusion? A horror film that won’t allow you to take a breath.
Luz, A Witch Story / Julie Roy / Canada 2019 / 15 min. – Every day Luz sets off in her ambulance to save lives. But sometimes regular medical regulations aren’t enough. Dreams are a warning, dreams are a sign, dreams won’t leave her alone. Someone, something threatens lives that Luz cannot save. Luz won’t give up, though.
The Golden Legend / Chema Garcia Ibarra, Ion de Sosa / Spain 2019 / 11 min. – Heil our Virgin Mary wrapped in towels. Jesus is my lifeguard and the sheep are feeding on human faces. The Golden Legend – Legenda Aurea – is the most read text of the middle ages, a water that’s begging us to go for a swim. The sun is shining, miracles happen, and the local swimming pool is full of people. Baby Jesus fell asleep on the blanket.
