Augur

Vasco Sá, David Doutel | Portugal, France | 2018 | 16 min | PT

In a remote secluded house in the mountains, two cousins live surrounded by harsh nature and frosty weather. The water in a nearby river freezes and, besieged by the cold wind that rises that day, the hostility of their relationship grows, reaching its limit. This film with a stifling atmosphere is characterised by a strong visual style reminiscent of oil paintings and uses only minimal words to masterfully evoke tension.

Cyclists

Veljko Popovic | Croatia, France | 2018 | 8 min

The cycling season is nearing its grand finale. During the final race, the two men in the lead are competing for more than the Grand Trophy; they are fighting for the affection of a lady and fulfilment of their erotic fantasies. Meanwhile, the small port town prepares for the arrival of a large ocean liner and its dashing captain.

The Call

Anca Damian | Romania | 2018 | 10 min | RO

A full bath as a gateway into memories. To submerge and once again meet your husband or see things evoking the fleeting moments of joy. That’s how a son remembers his mother. Along with her collaborators, the director uses or alludes to various materials and artistic methods such as embroidery or the remnants of wallpaper on the walls of a torn down house and connects them into an originally branchy whole.

This Magnificent Cake!

De Swaef Emma, Marc James Roels | Belgium | 2018 | 45 min | NL

An anthology film set in colonial Africa in the late 19th century telling the stories of five different characters: a troubled king, a middle-aged Pygmy working in a luxury hotel, a failed businessman on an expedition, a lost porter and a young army deserter. All these felt puppet characters comprise a remarkable whole with a chilling reach into the present.
