On the banks of a lake in Lithuania, Sangailé dreams of aviation and loops, flights she does not dare to carry out: her vertigo comes in the way.

Until she meets the extrovert Auste, full of confidence and imagination - Sangailé is fascinated and readily let herself go, enjoying a feeling of happiness and security that she has never experienced before. A chronicle that smells as good as freshly cut grass, tinted with poetic and fairy-like escapes, both fragile and tempting, this film won the prize for the best direction at the Sundance Festival 2015.

These 2 films examine diverging views on the "border" in an attempt to have multiple overlapping appearances/identities, desires for love and couples, freedom, movement and change in a hardly conducive environment. Mondial 2010 is the story of an impossible road-trip between Beirut and Ramallah undertaken by a Lebanese-Palestinian couple out to discover a vanishing city. Oriented is based in Tel Aviv/Jaffa at the dawn of the 2014 Gaza conflict. It follows the journey of 3 Palestinian friends determined to change the world by exploring their national and sexual identity.

+ Oriented

Jake Witzenfeld, 2015, IL, HD, ov st fr & ang, 81'

Too gay for the village, too Palestinian for the city, too Israeli for the Middle East and too comfortable for the interest of the international media... Oriented follows the lives of three gay Palestinian-Israeli citizens living it up in Tel Aviv as they confront their national and sexual identity in the build up to the Israeli-Gaza conflict of 2014.

Oriented follows the lives of three Palestinian friends exploring their national and sexual identity in Tel Aviv during the Israel-Gaza conflict of 2014. Khader is a Tel Aviv "darling" from a prominent Muslim family living with his Jewish boyfriend, David, a local LGBT nightlife impresario, and their Dalmatian, Otis. Khader is conflicted by his desire for change in the face of a seemingly hopeless situation. Fadi is an ardent Palestinian nationalist confronted by guilt-ridden Jewish love and Naeem must confront his family with the truth about his sexuality. Meanwhile, a war is brewing...

Determined to make a change, these three best friends form a non-violent, cultural resistance group (Qambuta) making viral content for gender and national equality. While their work may not change the world, it certainly helps them deal with the frustration of living with multi-faceted identities.

+ Mondial 2010

Roy Dib, 2015, LB, DCP, ov st fr & ang, 19'

Mondial 2010 is a film on love and place. A Lebanese gay couple decides to take a road trip to Ramallah. The film is recorded with their camera as they chronicle their journey. The viewers are invited through the couple’s conversations into the universe of a fading city.

Mondial 2010 is a discussion of institutional borders in modern day Middle East. It uses video as an apparatus to transgress boundaries that are inflicted on people in spite of them. It is a travel film in a trajectory that doesn’t allow travel, starring two male lovers, in a setting where homosexuality is a punishable felony. Shot with a hand-held camcorder, Mondial 2010 borrows the aesthetics of a travel video log. It normalizes the abnormal, and by doing so creates its own universe of possibility. It is a shift from the mainstream passive view of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict that places the victim/oppressor in the forefront of the produced imagery. This video glides over this conflict with an upper hand.

On a beach in the Dominican Republic, the young Noelí and her companion (pretending to be her brother) seek to engage in paid, not always transitory, relations with tourists. Anne (magnificently portrayed by Geraldine Chaplin), who plans to leave Paris and come end her days in the sun, starts to nourish feelings for Noelí who, on the other hand, would like to leave the island for Europe. This free adaptation of a novel by Jean-Noël Pancrazi questions a contradictory fantasy, the inevitable parallels between two lives that Anne, between romanticism and exoticism, would like to intertwine in a lasting fashion.

"Stories of our Lives" was created by Nairobi art collective The NEST who spent several months travelling across Kenya collecting stories of young LGBT people in a country that is still extremely homophobic. Issues like concealment or, on the other hand, affirmation of one’s own identity as also the fight to be accepted are expressed in poignant, highly poetic first-hand accounts. Banned in Kenya on the grounds of obscenity, the film is a strong expression of the hopes and courage of women and men who are hardly inclined to bury their heads in the sand.

Fassbinder is undoubtedly the most important German director of the second half of the 20th century. His death at the age of 37 left an immense void. Having followed Fassbinder for 13 years, Christian Braad Thomsen has made this film on the basis of his own memories, the many conversations he had with Fassbinder and his mother and recent interviews with close relations of the German director. The film, divided in 7 parts, begins in the post-war period and draws an intimate and enlightening portrait of the man and his work, which is a source of much enthusiasm and controversy even today.
