    Austria, 2017, 99min.
    Section: Imagina

    Johann Lurf compiled his film solely from images of the universe drawn from a total of 550 films across motion picture history. The result is a compelling poetic essay that is as much about the way we represent outer space as it is about the cosmos itself.

    Directed by: Radu Jude
    Romania / Czech Republic / France / Bulgaria / Germany, 2018, 140min.
    Section: Official Selection - Competition

    A young artist is planning to reconstruct a historical event from 1941, during which the Romanian Administration through the Romanian Army carried out an ethnic massacre on the Eastern Front. One of contemporary Europe’s most distinctive creators has come out with an ingeniously conceived film that – although the topic unfolds slowly and in detail – hits the viewer with a singular emotional punch.

    Directed by: James Benning
    USA, 1977, 82min.
    Section: Imagina

    James Benning, who has been breaking the habits of even the more indiscriminate fans of non-narrative film since the 1970s, dispensed with a classic story in this, his newly-restored first feature. Emanating a childlike joy from the surprising possibilities of a pure cinematic language, the work toys with the relationship between the characters, props, movements, and spaces of semantically unconnected scenes.

    Section: Future Frames: Ten New Filmmakers To Follow

    Gay saunas have their specific rules, which might be summed up as “what happens in the sauna, stays in the sauna”. And that’s what married couple Ivar and Pål are hoping as they set off with the aim of adding some zest to the partner stereotype. A film about love and about the kind of excesses one should only treat oneself to once in a while.

    Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
    United Kingdom / USA, 1968, 164min.
    Section: Out of the Past

    Fifty years ago Stanley Kubrik’s cult sci-fi picture shook the conventions of its genre and influenced the technical side of filmmaking (and more) for decades. Thus the chance to see it in its newly restored version is a no-brainer. The mysterious monolith of extraterrestrial origin and the calculating HAL 9000 onboard computer star in this epic poem about human evolution.

    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    The most ambitious work of the 1960s, 235 000 000 was made on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the 1917 Revolution. The film was made without any off-screen commentary, allowing images to speak for themselves to musical accompaniment. The resulting work is an emotional and visually attractive portrait of timeless moments in human life.

    Directed by: Jafar Panahi
    Iran, 2018, 100min.
    Section: Horizons

    One day, well-known actress Behnaz Jafari receives a painfully cruel video from a girl whose parents have forbidden her to study acting. Behnaz immediately cancels the shoot she is working on and, accompanied by director Jafar Panahi, heads off to the locations where the video was made. Recipient of Best Screenplay at this year’s Cannes festival, the film offers up a reflection on artistic freedom and acting, and on traditions that can enrich and restrict at the very same time.

    Estonia, 1968, 15min.
    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    The simple act of going to a café acquires new meaning in Sööt’s classic work. The film creates entertaining, contrasting views of Tallinn’s social life, employing a hidden camera, music from Handel and The Beatles, poetry as off-screen commentary, and the latest discoveries about Mars.
