A renowned director is preparing to shoot a film about the celebrated Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi. But his work is suddenly interrupted by an invitation to a small town in the middle of the Arava desert, where they’re showing one of the filmmaker’s movies. The routine courtesy visit, however, develops into an angry confrontation and indictment of the hypocritical system. This controversial and formally radical film won the Jury Prize (ex aequo) at the recent festival in Cannes.

Morocco, 1978, 88 min
Celebrated Moroccan filmmaker El-Maanouni’s first feature is a searing portrait of an heir of a rural family torn between his domestic duties and his dreams of leaving for the city for a better, different future. Raw and uncompromising, El-Maanouni’s trailblazing documentary paved the way for the subsequent wave of realism that would shake up Arab cinema.

Ali, a charismatic joker who keeps his sorrow carefully locked away, encounters Ava, a likeable woman bearing her heart on her sleeve and a trauma from her distant past. The sparks fly and a romance is born. An enchanting film full of irresistible humour that doesn’t try to paste over reality as it tells its story of love, the quest for reassurance, and the importance of Bob Dylan. The audience hit of this year’s festival in Cannes.

In this film, Ananda doesn't denote the Hindu state of sublime delight, but instead refers to a tribe of eternally joyful children who have decided to live freely. The search for this elusive tribe forms the apparent axis of this skilfully edited video diary charting a journey through India. The filmmaker has chosen a personal perspective that allows him to rise above the stereotypical travelogue.

An ageing proprietor of a technology company (Miroslav Donutil) has dedicated his whole life to his work, so it comes as a big blow when things suddenly start to fall apart at the seams. Olmo Omerzu’s new film relies on persuasive character acting and his special brand of gentle irony to demonstrate that, in order to preserve our dignity, we occasionally need to lose face in the eyes of others.
