The Edge

Géraldine Cammisar, Zaide Kutay | Switzerland | 2020 | 8 min

The duo of Swiss directors sent a truck driver on a trans-dimensional trip beyond the boundaries of reality. Warm colour tones of a vast desert alternate with empty black and white space between individual versions of the driver’s life (and death).

Listen to Me Sing

ISABEL GARRETT | United Kingdom | 2019 | 12 min

Sophie never wanted to entertain hotel guests. And they are not very keen on listening to a crab sing either. And yet, Sophie endures in her humiliating job. But one day, an unexpected partner comes into her life and plays a much bigger role than a mere second voice in an awkward show.

Heatwave

Fokion Xenos | Greece, United Kingdom | 2019 | 8 min

Snow-white houses glare into the distance, the sea surface sparkles and Greek islands endure a heatwave. When the first visitors come to the beach, we witness a series of routine tasks that – along with the heat – drive people crazy. The only rescue is the surging sea.

Nigel

Natasza Cetner | United Kingdom, Poland | 2019 | 9 min

Years ago, a male gannet called Nigel found a home at the New Zealand island of Mana. His touching story was followed by experts and the general public – Nigel settled down with a mate made of concrete, one of many placed here in an effort to bring birds back to the island. This film with a refined artistic style follows his story.

I Want a Sun in My Pocket

Laui Laessa | Canada, Costa Rica | 2019 | 5 min

Some of them feel smaller than the others and some feel less happy. Some drown in anger and some try to fix their relationships. And some sit on a rooftop of a house where all of this is taking place subject to the attacks of the surroundings. But all share a need for a remedy and peace that may never come.

Everything Will Fall Out of Place

Cheyenne Canaud-Wallays | France | 2019 | 4 min

The director, a student of the French school La Poudrière, takes us to a market. The day of a young banana seller named Reda doesn’t go well. His boss is not in a good mood and to navigate between swarming customers with two cups of coffee (when dressed in a banana costume) is just as hard as satisfying their needs.

Inside me

Maria Trigo Teixeira | Germany | 2019 | 6 min

In her graduate anidoc, the Portuguese director studying in Germany explains the circumstances of a crucial decision in the life of a young woman named Anna. She uses a minimalist black and white style to visualise the theme of abortion, giving the situation that many women find themselves in a convincing urgency.

One for All Things

Guoxiu Jiang | China, United States | 2019 | 4 min

Using neurotic animals, the director explores the anxiety and fear that some people feel when meeting new people. Humorous metaphoric scenes star an intellectual porcupinefish, exhibitionist stingray, exercising sloth and a chameleon in front of a mirror.

Forget Me Not

Adela Križovenská | Czech Republic | 2019 | 7 min

This film critically examines institutional care for children in the Czech Republic and its heritage from the communist era. Authentic testimonies of the film’s protagonists are sensitively underlined by a moderate artistic style. The Slovak director made this film at the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague.

Me and My Magnet and My Dead Friend

Maoning Liu | China | 2019 | 14 min

A story of a young boy whose best friend has for a long time been a magnet. The thing about the magnet is that it attracts various little treasures. But it can hardly measure up to a real human friend… A sensitive Chinese film about a strong friendship and a tragic event that cuts a childhood short.
