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.
