SIX WEEKS, dir. Marcin Janos Krawczyk, Poland 2009, 18’

Six weeks – that much time is left for mothers to change their decision about giving a child to adoption. Meanwhile, newly born babies are taken to day care centres and wait for the course of events.

LAST TRAIN HOME, dir. Lixin Fan, Canada / China, 2009, 85’

More than 130 mln Chinese people work far away from home. They come back once a year – to celebrate the Chinese New Year`s Day. Qin`s parents are among those who left their children to earn for their better future and education. They want their children to graduate and not to work in a factory. However, Qin does not want to spend all her life in the countryside, she wants to leave her home and start working. Does one of her parents` visit is able to change her attitude and strenghten family ties?

DISCO AND ATOMIC WAR dir. Jaak Kilmi, Kiur Aarma, Estonia / Finland 2009, 80’

Socialist Estonia enters television era. TV shows happy workers and children singing communist songs. The Soviet propaganda reaches Finland and Finland gives as good as it gets. Supported by the West, Finland launches a competitive TV channel reaching directly Estonian capital – Tallinn. Estonian minds are now occupied by Dallas soap opera and disco dance. Govermental bans and removing antennas from the roofs seem to be useless. When broadcast time comes, creativity of Estonian people goes beyond any borders.

IVAN AND LORIANA, dir. Stefano Cattini, Italy 2008, 10’

Adults who became deaf still remember sounds and melody of words. For children who were born deaf, it is really difficult to learn to speak. Kindergarden pupils Ivan and Loriana, led by nuns, exercise their tongues very carefully but they succeed most in mutual communication. A flesh of joy in their eyes during games and playing speaks for itself.

THE HOUSE, dir. Tayo Cortes, Columbia / Spain 2009, 70’

Mendez family are small sellers dreaming of a house with running water and electricity. They have been living illegaly for years in the outskirts of Bogota. They can be evicted any time. However, it is not the only problem of the family – the inner conflict makes their life even more difficult.
