1971 (Country: US; Year: 2013; Director: Johanna Hamilton)
Forty years before WikiLeaks and the NSA scandal, there was Media, Pennsylvania.

Misconception (Year: 2014; Director: Jessica Yu)
For almost 50 years, the world's population has grown at an alarming rate, raising fears about strains on the Earth's resources. But how true are these claims? Taking cues from statistics guru Hans Rosling, Misconception offers a provocative glimpse at how the world — and women in particular — are tackling a subject at once personal and global. Following three individuals, director Jessica Yu focuses on the human implications of this highly charged political issue, inspiring a fresh look at the consequences of population growth.
World premiere
Ne Me Quitte Pas (Country: Netherlands, Belgium; Year: 2013; Director: Sabine Lubbe Bakker, Niels van Koevorden; Writer: Sabine Lubbe Bakker, Niels van Koevorden)
Left by his wife for another man, Marcel falls into alcoholism and a deep depression, with only his friend Bob, also an alcoholic, to look after him. The friendship between the two men captures the frailty of the male ego and the natural comedy borne from their candid conversations. Ne Me Quitte Pas follows this downward spiral of mid-life crisis in a tender, often humorous, sometimes disturbing, examination of the ‘crisis of masculinity,’ alongside a mesmerizing exploration of mundane rural existence.

Tomorrow We Disappear (Country: US, India; Year: 2013; Director: Jim Goldblum, Adam M. Weber)
The puppeteers, performers, and magicians of the Kathputli colony in Delhi are the last slum-dweller–artists of their kind. When their land is sold to high-rise developers, they must fight for the only home they know. Fending off relocation, they struggle to keep their mystical Indian folk arts alive and to conserve what beauty remains as they are forced into someone else’s vision of the future.
