    The Mail Pasts
    Directed by: Laila Pakalniņa
    Latvia, 1995, 20min.
    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    The film is a study of mail delivery and receipt: a letter carrier goes about her regular mail delivery route early in the morning. We observe various locations and people, and witness different peculiarities. The camera is often motionless, allowing the action to unfold within a static frame.

    The Man Who Killed Don Quixote The Man Who Killed Don Quixote
    Directed by: Terry Gilliam

    Section: Horizons

    Toby used to be an idealistic film student; today he is a cynical director of commercials. When, after ten years, he visits the picturesque hamlet where he shot his student project about Don Quixote, he discovers to his horror that the film changed the inhabitants’ lives beyond recognition. But separating fact from fiction won’t be all that easy.

    Marica Marica
    Directed by: Judita Gamulin
    Croatia, 2017, 18min.
    Section: Future Frames: Ten New Filmmakers To Follow

    Marica’s husband has problems again and, for her, it’s the last straw that prevents her from returning home from work, but it’s also what allows her to finally be on her own. To have the time to reflect upon the life she doesn’t have and possibly can’t ever have. A fragile film about a moment that can change everything in the life of a middle-aged woman.

    Directed by: František Vláčil
    Czechoslovakia, 1967, 160min.
    Section: Seven Close Encounters

    Tono Stano presents

    This wide-ranging fresco, set in the early Middle Ages and focusing on the love between a pious virgin and an unruly heathen from a marauding yeomen family, is both a unique reconstruction of a distant epoch and an ecstatic poem. The expressive modernist work, capitalizing on the film achievements of the 1960s, is a singular accomplishment in Czech and world cinema.

    Markéta Wants Her Bag Markéta chce taštičku
    Directed by: Miroslav Janek
    Czech Republic, 2018, 37min.
    Section: Czech Films 2017–2018

    Markétka is happy when she can talk, paint, or ride the bus. The 16-year-old girl suffers from Rett syndrome, and thus her mental capacity is that of a two-year-old. Documentarist Miroslav Janek looks once again with empathy at the world of people who are “other” and at those closest to them who are tasked with contemplating their future.

    Mask of Sarnath Mask of Sarnath
    Directed by: Neil Ruttenberg
    USA, 1981, 20min.
    Section: Made in Texas: Tribute to Austin Film Society

    Mask of Sarnath, a finalist for the 1980 Student Academy Awards, is structured as an entry in the horror film genre. The theme of the film, “Evil Never Dies,” dominates the narrative and is backed by a hauntingly eerie soundtrack recorded especially for the film by Throbbing Gristle, a British punk/art/new wave rock group with a following on two continents.

    Match Point Match Point
    Directed by: Woody Allen
    United Kingdom / Ireland / Luxembourg, 2005, 124min.
    Section: Seven Close Encounters

    Marek Eben presents

    It was not Allen’s sole attempt at serious matter, yet this dark and disturbing drama about a young man’s rise to the higher circles of London society is the first film he shot abroad. It shines for its well-paced plot and its precisely delineated characters, but the work is especially engaging for pondering the extent to which we are subject to a fateful temptation and how far we are willing to muzzle our consciences to gain an advantage.

    Midsummer Day Jaanipäev
    Directed by: Andres Sööt
    Estonia, 1978, 20min.
    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    Daring, honest, and provocative, Sööt’s camera exposes a traditional midsummer night’s celebration in a Brezhnev era urban setting, when drinking had become a problematic issue. Songs from pagan romantic rituals are almost the only link between the old traditions and contemporary reality.

    Miriam Lies Miriam miente
    Directed by: Natalia Cabral, Oriol Estrada
    Dominican Republic / Spain, 2018, 90min.
    Section: Official Selection - Competition

    Shy girl Miriam is waiting to celebrate her 15th birthday and she wants to invite her guy. So far they’ve only chatted online, and the anticipated blind date only complicates things. A gentle picture about the uncertainties of growing up, girls’ competitiveness, and the demands of others, which can all be confusing when you’re young.

    The Miseducation of Cameron Post The Miseducation of Cameron Post
    Directed by: Desiree Akhavan
    USA, 2017, 91min.
    Section: Horizons

    When her guardians find out that their ward Cameron likes girls they take drastic steps – they send her to a Christian camp for gay conversion therapy. Set in the 1990s, this pleasing picture took the Grand Jury Prize in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at this year’s Sundance.

    Moments Chvilky
    Directed by: Beata Parkanová
    Czech Republic / Slovak Republic, 2018, 95min.
    Section: East of the West - Competition

    It might seem that Anežka’s life is not her own – her entire family want to get involved in every aspect of it. The young woman tries to please everyone, but she is gradually losing what is most important – herself. This confident debut deftly captures the pitfalls of family life, which are interpreted with humour, understanding and a remarkably mature sense of situations we experience so often that we aren’t even conscious of them.

    Section: Horizons

    Christmas Eve, 1985. While the family is eating dinner Juan decides to implement his plan: he and his best friend are going to rob the National Museum of Anthropology.

    My Friend “A” Yuzai
    Directed by: Takahisa Zeze
    Japan, 2018, 129min.
    Section: Official Selection - Out of Competition

    Masuda, a new worker at a factory, suspects a coworker of being a convicted killer. And a properly written exposé might allow him to return to the world of journalism. But it might also reopen the scars of his own past. This carefully constructed picture explores the limits of responsibility while treating the notion of coming to terms with guilt.
