    I didn’t think about religion until it became a violence.” A personal film, where religious iconography merges with intimacy, and in which a dense text accompanies images of Catholic icons and personal items. A colourful prayer which reminds us that faith is bound by many frontiers.

    Sometime in the nineties, somewhere in a Turkish coastal resort, Calum (Paul Mescal), a young, divorced father, is spending the vacation with his daughter Sophie (Francesca Corio), a girl almost in her teens. This debut by Charlotte Wells, one of the most agreeable surprises at this year’s Cannes festival, captures fragments of childhood memories and doesn’t require flamboyant gestures to portray unutterably intense life impressions.

    Here's work in progress that’s relaxing to watch. A stark, analytical and meticulous film which nevertheless pulsates with life as it demonstrates that machines, animals and people can function in a fascinating synergy. Does efficient industrialisation give you a sense of well-being or is it more likely to make you feel nervous? Whichever answer you give, Agrilogistics is a film that will have you reaching for those tomatoes.

One year on from Mirrors in the Dark, Šimon Holý brings us another wholly independent film about life’s traumas as seen from a female perspective, this time with a liberal dose of esoterica on top.

    In 1972 Yugoslavia became the site of Europe’s last smallpox epidemic. This gripping archival documentary, aptly described by its creators as a medical thriller, reconstructs the dramatic events of those spring months, and viewers will find it difficult not to draw comparisons with the worldwide events of the past two years.

    Artistic endeavour isn’t about competing; even so, applicants still have to be placed in order of merit at the academy’s entrance exams. But how do you assess artistic talent?

    The young and the restless from the Venetian Lagoon. The heroes of this impressionistic docu-fiction piece are shrouded in a dreamlike atmosphere; their prospects, however, are not entirely favourable. A film about a shared experience where, in a world of fast motorboats, there is no room for gondolas.
