Argyris Germanidis / Katerina Strauch, Germany
Somewhere on the mainland, the tenants of a building sleepwalk towards their windows to watch Sisyphos sweep away the fallen leaves. It’s autumn. On the radio, a voice mentions Cortázar’s aquatic endeavours. A series of drownings and disappearances connect the water supply system to a secret passage to the sea.
BRUTALIA, Days of Labor
Manolis Mavris, Greece
Perfectly identical girls in military uniforms, work day and night. A matriarchal and oligarchic society. What would happen if we replaced bees with humans? Anna observes the universe of her hive. Not being able to consent to the violence that surrounds her, she will have to make a radical decision.
The short film “Brutalia, Days Of Labour” directed by Manolis Mavris won the Canal+ film prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
Zina Papadopoulou / Petros Papadopoulos, Greece
In a single-tone, vertical city, a lonely man. He stands out as he stands out from his selves. Divided, split. Trying to fit in, to synchronize.
Iris Baglanea, Greece
Ira lives with her family at a remote location within Greece. She will face one of the strongest experiences of her childhood during a “training” session with her father, who has a very specific view for life.
The End of Suffering (a proposal)
Jacqueline Lentzou, Greece
Η Σοφία είναι πανικοβλημένη, πάλι. Το Σύμπαν αποφασίζει να επικοινωνήσει μαζί της. Ένας διάλογος με άλλες λέξεις. Μια συμφωνία πλανητών για τον Άρη, όπου οι άνθρωποι ονειρεύονται ξύπνιοι και αγωνίζονται για την αγάπη.
Sofia is panicky, again. The Universe decides to contact her. An other-wordly dialogue. A planet symphony for Mars, where people dream awake and fight for love.
Spyros Maltezos, Greece
How do you find inspiration? Where does it come from and where does it end? Stardust is a short, philosophical film that wants to imitate the moment of inspiration, without end, without beginning. An actress is giving an interview for the promotion of a movie that is going to be released in movie theatres. Her answers are converted into an inner – existential search through cinema. How have memories been imprinted on humanity? In every decade, technology has created through cinema the image that our collective memory has of each era. Stardust is a cassette-diary on an interstellar journey of some people who in one corner of the universe realized they existed.
