    Lithuania, 1992, 25min.
    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    Audrius Stonys, another “break generation” filmmaker, debuted with Earth of the Blind, which came to serve as the generation’s manifesto. Stonys was a disciple of documentary filmmaker Henrikas Šablevičius, and the latter’s influence is present in Earth of the Blind, a picture that weaves the new generation’s silent aesthetics and novel characters into the old visual poetics.

    El Dorado Eldoraado
    Directed by: Ülo Tambek
    Estonia, 1971, 22min.
    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    Different eras and geographical locations have their own dreamscapes. Here, however, the mythical El Dorado is a mining site. Tambek does not simply document miners’ lives, but creates an image of a secluded universe far away from social norms, one that engenders a unified space between reality and dream.

    Elegy Elegy
    Directed by: Louis Rizzo-Naudi
    United Kingdom, 2017, 8min.
    Section: Imagina

    For 20 years the Cassini planetary probe supplied humanity with new findings on the moons and rings of Saturn. Using archive footage and staged scenes, an original lament emerged for this particular space mission that organically links unknown desolate spaces, technology, and humans’ very existence.

    An Elephant Sitting Still Da xiang xi di er zuo
    Directed by: Hu Bo
    China, 2018, 234min.
    Section: Another View

    In the city of Manzhouli they say they have an elephant that sits and sits all day long. The peculiar legend about the apathetic pachyderm introduces a beautifully filmed elegy, in which four dejected protagonists bumble through a hopeless day. One of the most important film events of this year’s Berlinale, if not the entire festival season, screened in the Forum section away from the fight for those prestigious Bears.

    Croatia, 2018, 60min.
    Section: Imagina

    A boy and girl wandering alone through lush terrain undergo a journey to real and imagined landscapes. This cinematic diptych by Croatian director Željka Suková is a playful allegory with an original approach to sound.

    Euforia Euforia
    Directed by: Valeria Golino

    Section: Horizons

    Two brothers – rich and prodigal Matteo and resigned and self-deprecating Ettore – could not be more different. But then a grave medical diagnosis completely changes their lives and forces them to rethink their priorities. Set among the Italian upper classes, this bittersweet film effectively captures the fleeting nature of precious moments.

    Everybody Knows Todos lo saben
    Directed by: Asghar Farhadi
    Spain / France / Italy, 2018, 132min.
    Section: Horizons

    Asghar Farhadi’s eighth offering Everybody Knows, which opened this year’s festival in Cannes, is another of his films to illustrate the complexities of human relationships and their ultimate transformation. Laura, a Spanish woman living in Buenos Aires with her husband and children, hardly ever goes back to her native country. The events that unfold on her final visit there change everyone’s lives. A sharply honed family drama starring the outstanding Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem.

    The Eyes of Orson Welles The Eyes of Orson Welles
    Directed by: Mark Cousins
    United Kingdom, 2018, 115min.
    Section: Out of the Past

    “Can we tell your story anew?” Mark Cousins asks Orson Welles, and then proceeds to look upon this iconic figure of 20th-century film from a practically unknown perspective: as the creator of hundreds of drawings and paintings to which Cousins gained exclusive access thanks in part to Welles’s daughter Beatrice. Cousins conceived his unconventional portrayal of the man behind Citizen Kane as an audiovisual letter to the visionary maestro, celebrated for his immense powers of imagination.
