Special Screenings

These short silent films for children have one theme in common: being different. How can you fit in this world if you feel as though you don’t belong? How to overcome differences? Various characters, such as a schoolgirl, a giant, a mouse, a square, and a cupcake, show us how they deal with the subject. Their moving and funny stories encourage reflexion and discussion.

+ The Burden

Niki Lindroth von Bahr, 2017, SE, , 14'

Existential fear and boredom take center stage in this dark but delightful animated Swedish musical filled with quavering fish and monkeys with 9-to-5 office jobs. The apocalypse will prove to be a seductive savior.

+ Les îles

Yann Gonzalez, 2017, DCP, ov , 23'

A meticulously staged film about desire, flesh, and love between characters entranced by a strange, ecstatic, Lynchian magnetism. A clash between 1970s soft porn and cheesy 1950s movies, and the big winner of last year’s Queer Palm at Cannes.

+ Stacey and the Alien

Nelson Polfliet, 2016, BE, , 15'

A young cheerleader can’t say goodbye to her deceased mother, so she continues to take care of the dead body. A depiction of the grieving process, which pushes through absurdity into compassion.

+ Everything

David O'Reily, 2017, US, , 10'

In this interactive experience, everything you see is something that can become something else – from the animals to the planets and to the galaxies and far beyond. A philosophical video game featuring the soothing voice of the late philosopher Alan Watts.

+ Caducea

Christophe Mavroudis, 2017, BE, , 25'

Tom hides not only a deformed face behind his flamboyant Commedia dell’arte masks, but also a dark secret that won’t be divulged until decades later. A beautifully photographed and atmospheric Gothic fairytale.
