    Imperial Valley (cultivated run-off) Imperial Valley (cultivated run-off)
    Directed by: Lukas Marxt
    Germany / Austria, 2018, 14min.
    Section: Imagina

    The Imperial Valley stretches to the southern border of California. Through the efforts and investment of the agricultural industry, an inhospitable desert region was transformed into an oasis of verdure whose existence is subject to the strictly defined demands of human engineering. Contemplating the relationship between the landscape and civilization, the film unfolds in almost abstract shots taken from a bird’s-eye view.

    Directed by: Šarūnas Bartas
    Lithuania, 1990, 40min.
    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    Šarūnas Bartas’s documentary In Memory of the Day Gone By is one of the first works by the “break generation” of Lithuanian filmmakers who debuted in the 1990s. Marginalized members of society and people with disabilities, unseen in earlier documentaries, came to be principle characters in the new generation’s works, while settings shifted from romanticized countrysides to soiled cities.

    Section: Czech Films 2017–2018

    Can the creative process be more important than the work itself? Director Jan Švankmajer follows a troupe of nonprofessional actors rehearsing for a theatre performance in a small town while, at the same time, inviting the viewer onto the stage as well, where surrealism’s legacy is interwoven with the magic of human dreams, and where most of the questions that arise don’t have rational answers.

    Directed by: Jana Andert

    A shock therapy of news coverage from the war front. Documentarist Jana Andert spent eight months with an elite Iraqi Army unit on the front lines of the battle for Mosul, occupied by Islamic State fighters from 2014 to June 2017. An unflinching report from a city in ruins, robbed of its soul by one of the worst catastrophes of modern times.

    In the Stillness of Sounds L' esprit des lieux
    Directed by: Stéphane Manchematin, Serge Steyer
    France, 2018, 91min.
    Section: Documentary Films - Competition

    Marc Namblard, whose profession combines his talents as a biologist and sound engineer, well knows that nature has overwhelming sedative effects, particularly in terms of its acoustic dimension. A discourse on the tranquillity of the forest that permeates the very heart of man, this documentary cultivates our ability to observe, and, if we half-close our eyes, the viewing experience will be all the greater.

    Section: Another View

    Everyone is suspiciously pale. Humankind of the future is beset with epidemics. Part of the planet is shrouded in eternal darkness. The world is divided by impassable borders. This spectacular game played with the viewer brings together a dystopia, a sports-world crime drama, and a mysterious romance laced with vampirism – all in a single shot.

    Invasion of the Aluminum People Invasion of the Aluminum People
    Directed by: David Boone
    USA, 1981, 30min.
    Section: Made in Texas: Tribute to Austin Film Society

    This remarkable film celebrates fifties science fiction films, aluminum, and life in the modern world. A science fiction mystery of sorts. The film can also be seen as an allegorical testimony for “the Church of the Sub-Genius” (a satirical, parody religion started by artists and musicians).
