Margo Mot

Gust, an imaginative ten-year-old boy goes to meet his stepmother’s family for the first time. He is the only child other than his baby brother, who gets all the attention whilst Gust gets left behind to occupy himself with his imagination. At the family meeting Gust meets his aunt Vera. Just like Gust, Vera experiences the meeting from a distance and soon it becomes clear that she doesn’t function like the rest of the family. Though she tries hard to be accepted in the same way as her younger and more successful sister Nathalie. The adults treat Vera like a child but with his fanciful and unprejudiced view, Gust gets interested and fascinated by her. When Vera desperately runs away after yet another incident, Gust decides to follow her into the woods, where he finds her standing in a lake. They become aware of each other and the connection they share and decide to wait in the woods together as the family party carries on without them. MORE

Yia Yia: A Portrait

Greg Sego

Between 1939 and 1945, an estimated 40.5 million Europeans were uprooted and displaced… This is the story of 1 of them. "Yia Yia: A Portrait" documents the life and times of "Yia Yia" Mary Vorgia, as told by herself. From a youth spent in the sleepy mountains of Peloponnesus, to her sudden exodus to a land called Manhattan, Yia Yia reflects upon her life's journey, one both familiar and unique. For before she was Yia Yia, or even Mary, she was Maria, one of the millions of mid-20th century Europeans to have had their lives interrupted by the encroaching forces of World War II. What follows is one woman's odyssey, spanning much time and many places, to reclaim her lost innocence, heal an enduring trauma, and grow a family of her own. (English, 20 min.) MORE

Three retired friends love to talk in a bar in their country.

The flashbacks of a more erudite narrator than others will open up surreal moments that trigger these new questions. Between doubts and certainties, between faith and reason, friends will reflect on the fundamental questions of existence. MORE
