A Machine To Live In
The feature-length documentary essay by the filmmaking duo of Yoni Goldstein and Meredith Zielke tells the story of the Brazilian capital’s unique, almost mystical architecture, its prophetic history, and the cosmic dreams of the future that surround it. Pieced together from snippets of audiovisual texts, songs, interviews, and snapshots, the four distinct narrative perspectives form a hybrid portrait of the futuristic, almost cosmic landscape of Brasília, which becomes a source of UFO cults, spiritualist temples, and the transcendent. The filmmakers portray the architectural environment of Brasília as a unique, inspiring place where utopia often becomes reality.  "A Machine to Live In attempts to locate where the desires for myth and reason sublimates in the building of utopian spaces. It collects vignettes and stories from architects and builders as they describe their ideal cities, both real and transcendent." (Yoni Goldstein)

The Disappearance of My Mother
Benedetta Barzini, a former icon of the 1960s fashion world, provocative intellectual and leader of the feminist movement, educator, publicist, willful wife and mother, is planning a symbolic retirement. She is unable to escape the hectic world of media attention and her own son. Her main commitment is a promise to her son, a filmmaker, who decides to make an intimate portrait of his mother and the trajectory of her disappearance from the fake world of media images, simulacra and perfidious morality. Evasive glances and frank confessions, depression and spontaneous dancing. A touching, comic and sentimental struggle of a mother and her son in the (self)reflection of the film lens. “Disappearance of My Mother is rife with grand philosophical questions about beauty, capitalism, love, life, and death, while still maintaining the intimacy of a family connection.” (Lorri Kikta, Filmthreat)

The Earth Is Blue as an Orange
Anna, a single mother, lives with her four children in the war zone of the Ukrainian Donbas. Although the war has intervened in their lives, the family manages to maintain the cosy atmosphere of a home full of joy and mutual support amidst the endless bombing and chaos. The members of the household also share a passion for cinema and decide to make a film together about their experiences of war. Iryna Tsilyk’s feature documentary debut shows how, through passion and creativity during filmmaking, one can cope with trauma and remain human despite living in an inhospitable and life-threatening environment."The film asks: Does art somehow inspire us to deal with traumatic experiences? What can help us to stay human in times of trial? … I think our story is quite universal. Apparently, not everyone in the world knows what war is — but lots of people know what everyday survival means in this big world. All of us need some basic things to rely on: family, friends, love, art, etc."

The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear
To get away. The main motif of the existence of young Georgians, who spend day after day in helplessness, misery and frustration with the reality of their homeland affected by the shadow of the Soviet past and an unclear future. A tapestry of destinies and fragments of extraordinary and ordinary life stories begins with the casting of young Georgians between 15 and 25 years old for the film shoot. A dream career in Hollywood, a desire to show off their singing skills, concern for their relatives and a flock of sheep, and above all, a strong need to share their stories of everyday hardship and joy. The portrait miniatures are transformed into a more complete parable about a broken, dying country and young people with dreams and a touch of hope.„Mixing metanarrative with heightened visual aesthetics, THE MACHINE WHICH MAKES EVERYTHING DISAPPEAR intuitively penetrates individual lives to conjure a richly layered, indelible portrait of a society, brilliantly becoming more than the sum of its parts.“

VENUS - Let's talk about sex
An unexpectedly open-ended film-survey, an intimate confession of Danish women, is based on deep, intimate female desire and frustration with their own sexuality. From penetration to voyeurism, from fellatio to masturbation, a studio arrangement of female desires spreads out against the white background of their own fantasy. One hundred women, one hundred encyclopedias of wild and conventional sexual desires, dreams, and phobias that span between language, description, and revelation of one's own body and nudity. The intimate narrative, groping in words and feelings, gradually transforms into a manifestation of feminine uniqueness, malleable sexuality, and the erotic identity of the goddesses of everyday sensuality."In our preparation, we thought of it as a slow seduction. The original idea was to hold this casting as a research for a film where we would sort of reinterpret and reenact sex scenes based on real women’s fantasies and stories. Later we decided, that this was going to be a film." (Mette Carla Albrechtsen)
