  • In My Room
    In My Room | Director: Ayelet Albenda  
    Year of production: 2017 | Country of production: Israel, United Kingdom, USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    “In My Room” is a coming of age film. It takes place within the walls of the rooms of 6 teenagers around the world. It is based on archival materials shot by them behind closed doors and then posted on YouTube. They are not internet sensations or celebrities, just teenagers talking to themselves and to anyone who is willing to listen. The film follows a chronological timeline. It starts in 2008, the year they shot their first videos, and follows them throughout their presence on YouTube.

  • The Swedish Theory of Love
    The Swedish Theory of Love | Director: Erik Gandini  
    Year of production: 2016 | Country of production: Sweden | Language: Swedish (with full English subtitles available)

    The stereotype defines Sweden as a perfect society with a very high quality of life. But is it really a happy country? Is it possible that the most self-sufficient and independent people in the world are unsatisfied? Without the need to ask for help or favours, human contact is reduced to the minimum. The number of people who die alone is growing year after year. Is it worth assuming isolation and loneliness in order to have a self-sufficient, independent life? Iconoclastic filmmaker Erik Gandini explores the Swedish way of life with a sense of humour, considering how a secure and easy life can turn into an empty and lonely existence.

  • The Distant Barking of Dogs
    The Distant Barking of Dogs | Director: Simon Lereng Wilmont  
    Year of production: 2017 | Country of production: Denmark | Language: Russian (with full English subtitles available)

    THE DISTANT BARKING OF DOGS is set in Eastern Ukraine on the frontline of the war. Oleg lives with his beloved grandmother, Alexandra, in the small village of Hnutove. Having no other place to go, Oleg and Alexandra stay and watch as others leave the village. Life becomes increasingly difficult with each passing day, and the war offers no end in sight. In this now half-deserted village where Oleg and Alexandra are the only true constants in each other’s lives, the film shows just how fragile, but crucial, close relationships are for survival.

  • Connected
    Connected | Director: Tiffany Shlain  
    Year of production: 2011 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Have you ever faked a restroom trip to check your email? Or become so overwhelmed that you just unplugged from it all? In this funny, eye-opening, and inspiring film, Tiffany Shlain takes audiences on an exhilarating rollercoaster ride to discover what it means to be connected in the 21st century. Using a brilliant mix of animation, archival footage, and home movies, Shlain reveals the surprising ties that link us not only to the people we love but also to the world at large. A personal film with universal relevance, Connected explores how, after centuries of declaring our independence, it may be time for us to declare our interdependence instead.

  • (Dis)Honesty
    (Dis)Honesty | Director: Yael Melamede  
    Year of production: 2015 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    It’s human nature to lie; we all do it! From scandalous headlines to little white lies, (Dis)Honesty – The Truth About Lies explores the complex impact dishonesty has on our lives and everyday society. Interweaving groundbreaking experiments from celebrated behavioral economist Dan Ariely with personal stories from individuals affected by the unraveling of their lies, Ariely and a team of scientists uncover our propensity to be dishonest—sometimes even unknowingly. What’s revealed is a fascinating look at the forces behind our collective behavior and the many truths behind lies.

  • One Day on Earth
    One Day on Earth | Director: Kyle Ruddick  
    Year of production: 2012 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    ONE DAY ON EARTH is the first film made in every country of the world on the same day. We see both the challenges and hopes of humanity from a diverse group of volunteer filmmakers assembled by a participatory media experiment. The world is greatly interconnected, enormous, perilous, and wonderful.

  • Shipwrecked America
    Shipwrecked America | Director: Alexandra Kandy Longuet  
    Year of production: 2016 | Country of production: Belgium, France | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina, the most violent storm in the history of the United States, ravages New Orleans. The city’s entire population is displaced. In the land of opportunity, the disaster seems to provide an opportunity for a city’s rebirth on a fairer basis. But against all expectations and despite the Obama presidency, the Crescent City turns into a ground zero for imposing economic shock therapy, intensifying drastically the economic, social and racial inequalities that existed before. This is the portrait of a city that became the US laboratory and reveals the divisions of a whole country.

  • Where is my Son?
    Where is my Son? | Director: Chaiman Ahn

    Giseon Kwon lost her husband shortly after the birth of their son. She dedicated her entire life to her only son. JunKyo Lee had a successful career in the big city, and after more than 50 years came back to his hometown of Andong.
    Before it was too late, JunKyo wanted to make his mom happy during her final years. This documentary records their last year-and-half together, offering a meditation on family and loyalty.

    ROMEO IS BLEEDING is a documentary film following Donté Clark, a young poet in Richmond, CA, a community that struggles with gun violence stemming from a turf war spanning across multiple generations.
    Donté transcends the violence in his hometown by writing poetry about his experiences. Using his voice to inspire those around him, he co-founded an arts organization called RAW Talent, where like-minded youth from both sides of Richmond mount Te’s Harmony, an urban adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, with the hope of starting a meaningful dialogue about violence in the city.

  • Burning Out
    Burning Out | Director: Jérôme le Maire  
    Year of production: 2016 | Country of production: Belgium, France, Switzerland | Language: French (with full English subtitles available)

    Burning Out is literally a drama about life and death. For two years, Belgian director Jérôme le Maire followed the members of a surgical unit in one of the biggest hospitals in Paris. Constantly under severe stress, understaffed and subject to severe budget cuts, employees fight each other for resources. Meanwhile the management imposes ever more stringent efficiency and profitability targets. All over Europe burnout has reached epidemic proportions among employees in the public and private sectors. Will we end up killing ourselves? Or will we be able to find meaning and joy at work?
