I WANT TO RETURN RETURN  RETURN

A late-summer morning in Wrangelkiez, Berlin, Elpi, a young Greek woman, receives a phone call from a long-lost friend. As the day progresses, Elpi’s apprehensive wait for their reunion interweaves with the lives of other neighbourhood locals. There is a lingering feeling of wanting to get back to something in the neighbourhood. But to where, to what, and to whom?

ULYSSES MUST GO

CUCKOO

George is a teenager and also autistic. That’s the reason he and his parents live separately. George’s grandmother is the one to take care of him. It all changes dramatically after both of George’s parents visit Saint springs in the Russian suburbs. The water there is supposed to heal broken hearts and lives. Even if sometimes to heal means to kill.

ANATOMY OF A CZECH AFTERNOON

Temperatures are rising, and crowds of people push around the banks of lakes every day as if they were thirsty animals. Summer hits blasting from the speakers are silenced by an announcement that two boys had gone missing. We may witness a tragedy or just lie in the shadows with the feeling that it’s not our concern.
