    Aga's House Shpia e Agës
    Directed by: Lendita Zeqiraj
    Kosovo / Croatia / France / Albania, 2019, 107min.

    A diverse group of women live in a remote mountain location. The only male element in the house is nine-year-old Aga, the son of one of the women. Opening the East of the West competition, Lendita Zeqiraj’s debut authentically re-creates the vibrant world of her energetic female protagonists, in which the flow of stories, the sound of singing, and coarse humor cannot mask the dark undertone of their country’s wartime past and its enduring ethnic tensions.

    Alexandria... Why? Eskanderija... lih?
    Directed by: Youssef Chahine
    Egypt, 1978, 125min.

    Winner of a Silver Bear at the Berlinale, this is one of Chahine’s most popular movies abroad: a grand autobiographical ode to pre-WW2 cosmopolitan Alexandria centering on a young actor (standing in for Chahine) who dreams of studying acting in the United States. Whimsical, multi-layered and utterly invigorating, this loving, crowd-pleasing panorama of Chahine’s birthplace meticulously reconstructs an Alexandria known by few outside Egypt.

    Amazing Grace Amazing Grace
    Directed by: Alan Elliott, Sydney Pollack
    USA, 2018, 87min.

    Oh Lord! In 1972 Aretha Franklin recorded her greatest gospel album, and director Sydney Pollack was there to capture the explosive spiritual music, Aretha’s singular charisma, the African-American community in Los Angeles, period outfits and the ecstasy. As The New York Times wrote: “Don’t bother with tissues. Bring a towel!”

    Apart Spolu sami
    Directed by: Diana Cam Van Nguyen
    Czech Republic, 2018, 10min.

    Apart is an intimate, melancholic, and highly sensitive story of three people who lost a parent during their adolescence. This animated documentary takes a fresh approach to rotoscoping, in which live-action footage of real people is painted over to create an animated format. The movie’s structure is thus organically transformed into everything from abstract images to realistic scenes.

    Directed by: Todd Douglas Miller
    USA, 2019, 93min.

    Fifty years after the first lunar landing, NASA has opened up its extensive archives and released previously unseen material of amazing audiovisual quality, including a 70mm film of the launch from Cape Canaveral and intimate footage of the otherworldly calm that prevailed in the lunar module. The nine-day mission becomes more than just Armstrong’s iconic “giant leap for mankind,” growing instead into a fascinating space odyssey.

    Arrest Arest
    Directed by: Andrei Cohn
    Romania, 2019, 126min.

    August 1983, somewhere in Romania. The bright summer’s day that Dinu is spending with his family on the beach is darkened by the arrival of the police and his unexplained arrest. He finds himself sharing a cell with small-time crook Vali, who soon proves to be quite a sinister fellow inmate. A formally inventive drama about the chilling absurdity of totalitarian regimes.

    The August Virgin La virgen de agosto
    Directed by: Jonás Trueba
    Spain, 2019, 129min.

    In the hot summer months, when Madrileños leave their homes in droves to escape the insufferable heat, the centre of Madrid is left abandoned. That is, except for the tourists and a handful of undaunted locals – and those who can’t see the way forward, like Eva, a charming thirty-something. Told with appealing finesse, the story unfolds during the city’s August festivals, when a person’s inner turmoil can be soothed by fleeting encounters and unexpected adventures.
