Best of Fests
Innovative cinema and intimate insights: The BEST OF FESTS series brings together films that have already been screened at other important festivals and celebrated or awarded prizes there.
PRIMAS (Kanada 2017, Laura Bari). The childhood of the teenagers Rocío and Aldana is marked by abuse and violence. Now the two young women are trying to overcome their traumas: by speaking about them and dealing with the past through therapy. A film about survival and life going on.
THE FAMILY – DRUZINA (Austria 2017, Rok Biček). Matej becomes a father. But new family life proves difficult, something that may be exacerbated by Matej’s family background: his mother and brother have disabilities; he assumed responsibility from an early age. A film about curses – and blessings? – family.
OUAGA GIRLS – OUAGA GIRLS (Burkina Faso, France, Qatar, Sweden 2017, Theresa Traore Dahlberg). In a training centre in West African Burkina Faso young women learn how to be car mechanics. Self-assured and determined they are taking pioneering steps in a male-dominated profession.
WHAT WALAA WANTS – WHAT WALAA WANTS (Canada, Denmark 2018, Christy Garland). 15-year-old Walaa wants to be a police officer but she is a rebellious teenager. Her family offer her hardly any support. WHAT WALAA WANTS follows the girl from the West Bank on her path to adulthood and the police academy.
