    Andrés, the single father of 12-year-old Pedro, has to break his back just to ensure the mere basics for his son. On the outskirts of Caracas, people live from one moment to the next and any mistake is immediately punished. This deeply realistic story takes us into the ruthless environment of the Venezuelan capital, which – at a time when the country suffers immense social problems, hyperinflation, and a shortage of food – takes on an increasingly more savage character.

    The Forester’s Song Do lesíčka na čekanou
    Directed by: Jiří Brdečka
    Czechoslovakia, 1966, 10min.
    Section: Out of the Past

    A film featuring minimalist animation, inspired not only by the well-known tragic folk ballad but, above all, by the artistic style of self-taught naivist painter František Braun, who worked with Jiří Trnka. Here Brdečka conveys his poetic sense of kitsch, blended with a melancholy irony.

    Billy Bloom never felt he was like other people, but if there’s something his classmates don’t like, it’s the fact that his fashion choices range between David Bowie and Lady Gaga at their most psychedelic. Billy’s response to bullying is simple: an even thicker layer of glitter and a stubborn determination to fight for his uniqueness.

    Section: Official Selection - Out of Competition

    A door-to-door soap salesman comes to a sparsely populated village in northern China. With his arrival, however, the number of bizarre attacks on the local population increases. Laced with a considerable dose of black humor, the movie offers an unusually entertaining and uncompromising sketch of Chinese society today.

    Directed by: Siegfried A. Fruhauf
    Austria, 2016, 5min.
    Section: Imagina

    Is the image we see on screen in thrall to order or is it an eruption of visual chaos? Siegfried A. Fruhauf presents a volatile and frenetically-changing painting of a grid of squares that fill the image space at different angles and in varying sizes and quantities. The result is a compelling, almost physical experience.
