    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    In the wake of Latvian independence, we see brief moments from the daily lives of people living in two different countries: the ferry on the Daugava river connects villagers across the newly established Latvia-Belarus border. A meditative portrait of a place at the end of the world, far from the hubbub of the nationalism that was characteristic of the early nineties.

    Section: Official Selection - Competition

    The sleepy town where Léo lives doesn’t offer her much chance of self-fulfilment. Extricating herself from her mother’s influence and her constricting environment isn’t easy for the frustrated young woman, yet happiness might be close at hand. A stylistically precise, pop-impressionistic film about a girl’s quest to find out who she really is, featuring the captivating Karelle Tremblay in the lead role.

    Flame Polte
    Directed by: Sami van Ingen
    Finland, 2018, 15min.
    Section: Imagina

    Three years ago a negative was found of a lost Finnish film made in 1937. After years of natural chemical processes and gradual degradation, the nitrate frames transformed the images of the filmed melodrama. Portions of the scanned negative, with all their defects left as is, make up a fascinating materialization of time and bear witness to the mutability of meaning and perception.

    Netherlands, 2017, 3min.
    Section: Imagina

    By mutually overlapping and approaching each other, mildly distorted images that have been photographed by a device sensitive to infrared radiation produce an almost hypnotic collage. This enchanting short film – created through optical illusion, perspective, the objects under observation, and even the camera itself – can cause one’s head to spin.

    An unknown woman suffering from memory loss turns up one day at Warsaw’s main station. Two years later, going by the name of Alicja, she is recognised in a television programme and goes back to her family. Yet will she be able to relate to people who were once close to her but are now complete strangers? This atmospheric psychological drama is dominated by a focused performance from Gabriela Muskała, who also wrote the script for the film.
