CORNER / KUT

Croatia, Estonia, 2016, 2 min.

Life isn’t easy in a corner, in the angle where two edges meet. Everything is geometrically relative when perspective and the laws of gravity start playing tricks on you.

Anna Katalin Lovrity

Hungary, 2017, 9 min.

Somewhere on an oceanic island the forces of nature are still at work, as in primeval times. A young, naive female tiger lives there in harmony with herself and nature. When her awakening femininity is noticed by an older male tiger, the young tigress is getting increasingly scared by his heated approach. But escape is impossible on this secluded island.

FOREIGN BODY / CIALO OBCE
Marta Magnuska

Poland, 2016, 7 min.

A foreign body lives its own life. You can’t get rid of it. It’s always with you, you need it. Caress that odd part of yours, don’t try to shave its long tousled fur. This is a story about something  considered strange at first, but which turns out to be the dearest thing to us. About the transformation of inside and outside.

FAREWELL / SLOVO
Leon Vidmar

Slovenia, 2016, 6 min.

Lovro is tired and sad. He fills the bathtub with water, looking at droplets dripping from the tap. As one hits the water surface, Lovro is reminded of the day he first went fishing with his grandpa. His thoughts return him to the fish pond, and the bathroom sounds and objects bring back memories of that day: putting a black worm on a hook, getting tangled in his grandpa’s line, driving to the pond in a beaten old car, catching a fish for the first time and seeing it die. Memory and reality merge into one.
