1489

When her brother goes missing during the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, Shoghakat decides to film her and her parents’ search and emotional process—even at times when others might have put down the camera.
Gerlach

Gerlach

A lyrical and tender portrait of Gerlach van Beinum, one of the last old-school crop farmers around Amsterdam. A beacon of patience and dedication, he plows on through the seasons, as capitalist society imposes itself more and more blatantly.
Sister of Mine

Sister of Mine

Age section 13+ year. The young filmmaker Mariusz Rusiński films his desperate parents and his 17-year-old drug-addicted sister Zuzia. How did it come to this? And what is his role in the messed-up family dynamic?
Life is Beautiful

Life is Beautiful

While on an exchange in the Norwegian city of Tromsø, young Palestinian filmmaker Mohamed Jabaly is “trapped” with his host family when Gaza’s borders are closed. His struggle to obtain a work permit sparks the close-knit community into action.
Flickering Lights

Flickering Lights

In Tora, an Indian village on the border with Myanmar, the rhythm of life is set by daylight and darkness. But the village is on the verge of change: electricity is finally coming. Will it bring this close-knit community the progress it is hoping for?
