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.
Cut off from the world, the town of Norilsk lies in the deepest Siberian north. Against all odds, it rose up from the foundations of a gulag. In this environment everything is possible. Surrounded by ice, the inhabitants find their own means of escape.
