    A research center in Sukhumi, the capital of today’s Abkhazia. Legend has it that it was built at the end of the 1920s to create a hybrid between man and monkey. The hypothetical creature never saw the light of day, but people and primates, like sad relics of the past, live together in the derelict wings of the medical institute to this very day.

    Section: Horizons

    While Britain is being heavily bombed, women have to take up roles normally assigned exclusively to men. Thanks to her refined sense of dialogue, Catrin is given the task of working on a screenplay for a film which requires authenticity and optimism to raise the spirits of British women contributing to the war effort. A star-studded, period romance about filmmakers and the desire to inspire.

    There Was Once a Miller on the River Jsouc na řece mlynář jeden
    Directed by: Jiří Brdečka
    Czechoslovakia, 1971, 11min.
    Section: Out of the Past

    Inspired by an old broadside ballad, Jiří Brdečka brings us a woeful tale of a veteran returning home who is accidentally killed by his own parents. Combining Eva Švankmajerová’s paintings with cutout animation, special effects, and even a live actor, the filmmaker once again brings into play his fondness for naive folk kitsch.

    Slovak Republic / Czech Republic, 2016, 90min.
    Section: Documentary Films - Competition

    This uncompromising, sometimes painfully revealing but always deeply insightful portrait presents the life of Richard Müller from a fresh perspective.

    Section: Variety Critics’ Choice
