Regarding form and content the main competition is as diverse as life itself: classic story-telling stands in contrast to the associative essay and the personal voyage counterparts the unsettling research. An Irish farmer fights against Intel, capitalistic growth fantasies are being questioned and an obsessive search for the godfather of Bossa Nova leads to Brazil. Will we encounter him? Slices of life, insights and perspectives: 13 films open doors to new worlds.
A YEAR OF HOPE
A year on a paradise island is supposed to pave the way for a better life for a group of street children from Manila. They have been severely traumatised by abuse and many have not seen their family for years. A film that is as upsetting as it is important.
