In alphabetical order:
Dustin / Naïla Guiguet / Fiction / FR / 2020 / 20’
In an abandoned warehouse, a crowd is dancing as one on 145 BPM techno music. Among them is Dustin, a young transgender and crew: Felix, Raya and Juan. As the night draws on, collective hysteria morphs into sweet melancholy, and euphoria into yearning for tenderness. Director Naïla Guiguet won the Go Short Award for best fiction film last week.
Maalbeek / Ismaël Chandoutis / Documentary / FR / 2020 / 16’
Memory flowing like quicksand. In Ismael Chandoutis’ latest film we follow Sabine Borgingnons who survived a terrorist attack in the Maalbeek metro station. When she awakes from a coma without recalling what happened to her, she starts digging into the catastrophic event to reconstruct her story.
Mustachio / Victoria Warmerdam / Fiction / NL / 2020 / 11’
A room, an adult man, and his unsolved youth trauma: these are the ingredients for this touching tragicomedy. It is recommended to invite your imaginary friends to come and watch this film with you.
My Uncle Tudor / Olga Lucovnicova / Documentary / BE / 2021 / 20’
NAYA / Sebastian Mulder / Documentary / NL / 2021 / 25’
Sebastian Mulder tells the story of Naya, a wolf who travels unseen from Germany, through the Netherlands, to Belgium. This movie tells us as much about humans and how we are obsessed with controlling our environment as it does about the wolf. Sebastian Mulder also received a special mention from the jury for his film.
