MOUNTAIN PLAIN MOUNTAIN
Deepening confusion becomes a delightful experience watching this collaborative film by Daniel Jacoby and Yu Araki. Sound and rhythms take centre stage in this observational documentary on Ban’ei, a rare kind of draft horse race that takes place only in Obihiro, Japan.
MANED & MACHO
A young girl’s repressed emotions and instincts are embodied in the animals that come out of her dreams. However, no one in her family can see these animals.
A hunter’s son falls asleep counting the jumping deer. One of them gets shot, one bleeds a little, another one limps away from the meadow. And the antlers grow and grow on the boy’s head, puncturing the pillow each night. The film is a horror fairytale about instincts.
THE LOST HEAD & THE BIRD
A disorientating and absurd world on the fringes of contemporary India where the boundaries between fact and fiction blur, and the undercurrents of caste, sexual, religious, and political violence lurk beneath the surface, erupting in ever more frequent outbursts.
LIVING LIKE HETA
Heta lives with her pet seal in a very peculiar house full of curious rooms and endless corridors. Her entire life consists of carefully planned and conducted routines. When the latter get thrown into disarray, Heta’s world begins to crumble.
Each year on July 12, bonfires from wooden pallets, tires, and garbage are lit by protestants on their own territory to commemorate the victory of the 1690 battle of the Boyne.
A coyote loses his wife and children in a wolf attack. Tormented by human emotions, he tries to process the experience. Besides grief and delusion, evil takes up more and more space.
