Chasing The Sun: El Shatt (Dohvatiti Sunce: El Shatt) (Country: Croatia; Year: 2023; Director: Ana Bilankov)
El Shatt was the largest refugee camp in the Sinai desert in Egypt during the Second World War. This transtemporal filmic journey reconstructs a fragmented memory of unknown history about migration in the Mediterranean.
Nothing But Shadows (Sombras Nada Más) (Country: Colombia, US; Year: 2023; Director: Kathy Mitrani)
On the anniversary of Marisol’s husband’s death, her neighbour’s construction work uncovers human remains. The coincidence of this discovery terrorises Marisol, a superstitious visionary, forcing her to face her own mortality.
Pacific Club (Country: France, Qatar; Year: 2023; Director: Valentin Noujaïm)
In 1979, the Pacific Club was opened in the basement of La Défense - the business district of Paris. It was the first nightclub for Arabs from the suburbs; a parallel world of dance, sweat, young loves, and one-night utopias.
Wander To Wonder (Country: Netherlands; Year: 2023; Director: Nina Gantz)
Mary, Billybud and Fumbleton are three miniature actors who perform in a 1980s kids' TV series. When the creator of the series dies, they are left alone in the studio to make increasingly strange episodes for their fans.
When We Encounter The World (Country: Portugal, US; Year: 2023; Director: Leonardo Pirondi, Zazie Ray-Trapido)
In 1934 an experiment by an amateur-scientist couple began. The Automeris Project placed a group of young children in an enclosed forest, leaving them to fend for themselves. On return visits, the couple presented self-made films depicting the outside world.
