2019 CANDIDATES

DETROITERS

Andrei Schtakleff
Documentary / France / Spectre production, The Dark / 1h24

What remains when the mythic automobile capital dies? A field of ruins, souvenirs and snow. And a small, fragile fire that continues to burn because some people have not left. They try to determine how to rebuild.

 

MIGUEL'S WAR

Eliane Raheb
Documentary / Lebanon / ITAR productions, Kabinett Films, Zeitun films / 2h30

When he was 18, Miguel participated in the Lebanese civil war to prove to the society that he “exists” and could act like a “real man”. He fails and immigrates to Spain. It’s only now – more than 30 years after leaving Lebanon – that Miguel is willing to confront his trauma and the ghosts from his past.

 

OS LIVRES

Isabel Joffily and Pedro Rossi
Documentary / Brazil / Coevos Filmes / 1h36

Adel and Hadi were only teenagers when they fled the war in Syria in 2013. In Rio de Janeiro, they changed and adapted. After 5 years without seeing their parents, the family reunites in a transformed Brazil that will take Adel and Hadi to the streets again.

 

THE PLAINS

David Easteal
Fiction - documentary / Australie / autoproduction / 2h58

Every day a man commutes home at the end of the working day in the outer suburbs of Melbourne. As the seasons pass we observe dramatic events of his life as well as mundane quotidian details. Within the microcosm of the car the film ultimately becomes a meditation on time, memory, work, and how love and the relationships in our life sustain us.
