In Bloom

Early nineties, in Tbilisi, the capital of the newly independent Georgia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The country is facing violence, war on the Black Sea coast (Abkhazia) and vigilante justice that plague society. But for Eka and Natia, fourteen-year-old inseparable friends, life just unfolds: in the street, at school, with friends or elder sisters who are already dealing with men’s dominance, early marriage and disillusioned love. For these two girls in bloom life just goes on...

IT'S ALL SO QUIETdir. Nanouk Leopold, Netherlands, 2013, 94 min

It's All So Quiet

Helmer, a single farmer in his fifties, lives with his aged, bedridden father in the Dutch countryside. His working days are marked by the visits of milk collector Johan, a man of his own age for whom Helmer holds a secret fascination. One day Helmer decides to renovate the house, buying himself a new double bed and moving his father upstairs. His life gains even more momentum when adolescent farmhand Henk comes to help him out.

THE ALMOST MANdir. Martin Lund, Norway, 2012, 75 min

The Almost Man

Uneasy feelings about becoming a father and an adult cause Henrik to act out in hilariously inappropriate ways in this offbeat comedy. On the one hand, he wants to ignore adulthood and spend time fooling around with his friends. On the other, he must grow up and make his relationship with Tone, the mother of his unborn child, work...The Almost Man comically tells a tale of one man's long road toward maturity, and how hard it can be for some individuals to face the prospect of growing up.
– Joe Keenan, CINEQUEST catalogue

ONCE UPON A TIME VERONICAdir. Marcelo Gomes, Brazil, 2012, 91 min

Once Upon A Time Veronica

Veronica is fresh out of medical school. It's a crucial time in her life, a period filled with doubts and important decisions to be made: tough career choices, her intimate bond with her ailing father, and her active but chaotic love life. Veronica must deal with all of them as she tries to cope with the adult life that lies ahead.

Once Upon a Time Veronica is a fairy-tale in reverse. There are no fairy godmothers, no weddings, and no dreams. Veronica's story reveals itself through adventures, misfortunes, desires and songs.
