Love and Fear (World Premiere)

Directed by Thora Lorentzen (Denmark)

Thora, documentary director and main character, is filming her trembling love life with Sebastian during their holiday trip to a cottage by the sea. She investigates her fear of losing, and her inability to trust the long term perspective of their relationship. The strangely staged documentary is a poetic and intimate insight in a love relationship with visual fragments of early memories. She is confronted with the reality of a real relationship, where you have to to let go, and trust.

A Home in Memory (US Premiere)

Directed Helena Oest (Finland)

A home in Memory' shows an almost 300 m2 apartment in the very centre of Helsinki and how it is being emptied, picture by picture. Visually, the film consists of still photos only. On the sound track we hear two sisters discussing, the sounds of the apartment and the surroundings. The siblings are not shown in the photos, we can only hear them. It is as if what we see is in the past but what we hear in the present.
