Program for June 12
The River - by Sam Handel - USA
The River is a comedic journey to the river on a sweltering hot day with a pregnant Maria. Her loving-kindness practice is tested by work schedules, mechanical failures and complex human relationships, all conspiring against a desperately needed cooling dip.
Curfew by Brenden Hubbard - USA
At the lowest point of his life, Richie gets a call from his estranged sister, asking him to look after his nine-year old niece, Sophia, for a few hours.”
Magnetic Reconnection by Kyle Armstrong - Canada
Magnetic Reconnection is a short documentary film contrasting the Northern Lights with decaying manmade debris surrounding the Arctic Canadian town of Churchill, Manitoba. The film touches on the regenerative power of nature and the futility of mankind’s struggle against natural processes of decay.
To Kill A Child by Alexander Skarsgård - Sweden
It's the happy morning of an evil day, because this day a child is to be killed by a happy man. No shadows pass over the kitchen, and yet even now the man who will kill the child stands near a white gas pump. The man and the young woman is going to the sea, and there they will rent a boat and row far, far out.
The Big Leap - by Kristoffer Rus - Poland/Sweden
Does God exists? - everything started with this universal question that the Swedish director, Kristoffer Rus, wanted to ask in the era of a global financial crisis. With the help of pitch black humor, The Big Leap stresses the moral dilemmas that erupt when the protagonists realize that everything they have fought for is gone. They meet atop a skyscraper and they have the same intention - to commit suicide due to a major financial crisis. The conflict quickly escalates when they discover that they all represent a different conviction about the afterlife. The only way to find out who's right is to take The Big Leap.
