Huo jian fa she shi | Mise à nu | To Write From Memory | Madden | Hito

At the basketball camp, 15-year-old Fang talks about her dreams. But life never stops, it moves too fast. Her phone fell into water. There are too many stairs to climb. The adults seem to decide her future. And the rocket keeps being launched every month.

When Theo awakens her sense of desire, Anouk, the only girl on the wrestling team, starts seeing the sparring sessions in a different light. A quietly intimate film, in which relationships between bodies, gazes and feelings are negotiated anew.

A young person’s transition is steadily progressing, despite their mother’s vocal objections. To Write From Memory is an essay on moving forward, and the inevitability of confronting one’s own past in the process.

To Madden, the muddy road to the nearby town in front of her family’s farm seems like a threshold to another world. A mystical coming-of-age story in which the teenager experiences glimpses of the unknown as feelings of longing and loyalty collide.

Between nuclear reactors and military curfews, 14-year-old Jani lives in a dystopian world oppressively devoid of empathy. Together, she and her slippery new friend Kiefer the talking catfish gear up to strike a surreal blow for freedom.

Ma mère et moi | Crushed | Simo | Yi shi yi ke | Antes de Madrid

Kees wants to roam far away from home, but her mother doesn’t seem ready to let her go yet. In light of the complexity and ambivalence of their close relationship, a joint road trip develops into an emotional tour de force.

A crush is emotionally very draining: what to do with all the infatuation, especially when it is unrequited? Ella Rocca questions the person they adore, the Internet and themselves. The data is sampled into an essay about a very (in)determinate feeling.

Simo secretly takes over his big brother’s gaming live stream. Suddenly, the number of viewers explodes – and brings an unexpected opponent onto the scene. This nuanced film illuminates the dynamics in a family that moves closer together through detours.

Wen Hui believes he was born to be a goalkeeper, even though nobody remembers how he first got into football. The odds of saving a penalty are against him, but he knows that when confusing events happen, there is comfort in the structure of the game.

It’s their last chance to have sex for the first time. Early tomorrow morning, Micaela is moving to Madrid. Santiago is staying behind in Uruguay. They have it all planned out: a secluded spot, condoms – and getting a few tips from a friend, just in case.

Aaaah ! | Huo jian fa she shi | Infantaria | Mirror Mirror | Timis | Nanitic | Man khod, man ham miraghsam

The tumultuous school day is filled with cries of “Aaaah!”: cries of anger, of boredom, of joy and surprise – in short, the full spectrum of young emotions. A charmingly grotesque animated short about unrest in a world dancing to the tune of the adults.

At the basketball camp, 15-year-old Fang talks about her dreams. But life never stops, it moves too fast. Her phone fell into water. There are too many stairs to climb. The adults seem to decide her future. And the rocket keeps being launched every month.

In opulent, lush scenery a birthday party is being held. Joana longs for her period to start, her brother Dudu misses his absent father, Verbena looks for a way out. Fulfilling your dreams can come with pain in this magical realist glimpse from Brazil.

Luthando is determined to sensually explore her body. However, her voyage of discovery threatens to fail between Internet research, magazine tips and FaceTime. A coming-of-age comedy about female sensuality and self-determination.

At dusk, the spirit world grows bolder. The darkness of the Dakar market where the solitary, slender figure of Pa Kong-Kong dwells, is considered no place for children to venture. But Binta must prove to her peers that girls have the bravery to lead.

Nine-year-old Trang and her family take care of her dying grandmother. As in an ant colony, each member has an important function. Carol Nguyen sensitively provides insights into the construct of family as a microcosm.

In her native country of Iran, Saba is not free to express herself through dance. When she rebels against the rigid rules in a poetic act of defiance, the lines between documentary and fiction begin to blur. A powerful and moving directorial debut.
