A boy is trapped in a flat with something monstrous this week in The Djinn, a woman hunts a man she believes is a war criminal in The Secrets We Keep and the residents of a retirement community try to find Some Kind Of Heaven. A man tries to build a new life after suffering amnesia in a pandemic in Apples - see our interview with director Christos Nikou - while a father and son travel to Ireland to scatter ashes in End Of Sentence, the story of a herbalist and faith healer is told in Charlatan. An alien takes the body of an Earthman for a joyride in Fried Barry - read what director Ryan Kruger told us about it - and a family is haunted in The Funeral Home. A father runs away with his transgender son in Cowboys - we spoke to director Anna Kerrigan - while a troubled former soldier gets a job digging up the dead in Atlantis and a daughter tries to help her disturbed mother in Paper Spiders - creators Inon Shampanier and Natalie Shampanier shared their thoughts. A young woman goes looking for her mother in Once Upon A River and the mourning of Stalin is considered by State Funeral. A woman seeks revenge in Scavenger, and there's a re-release for cyberpunk sci-fi Johnny Mnemonic.
