INCIDENT BY A BANK

INCIDENT BY A BANK

DIRECTOR: Ruben Ostlund - (Sweden)

Shot in a single take, this detailed and humorous account of a failed bank robbery reveals how people react to unusual circumstances. (10 mins.)


THE ACCORDION

THE ACCORDION

DIRECTOR: Jafar Panahi - (Iran)

When their accordion is taken from them, two young street musicians in Tehran provide a metaphor for a new generation that, led by understanding, prefer solidarity to conflict. (9 mins.)


THE WONDER HOSPITAL

THE WONDER HOSPITAL

DIRECTOR: Beomsik Shimbe Shim - (US/South Korea)

An animated look at the illusion of beauty, told through symbolism and amazing 3D, CGI, and hand puppetry. (12 mins.)


THE KISS

DIRECTOR: Ashlee Page - (Australia)

On a hot summer’s night, two girls, fueled by hormones and alcohol, take a leap that will change their lives. (15 mins.)


FLAWED

DIRECTOR: Andrea Dorfman - (Canada)

Dorfman’s drawings burst colorfully into life as she animates the story of her long-distance relationship with a man whose profession, plastic surgery, gives her plenty of fodder for creative imagery. (12 mins.)


THE SIX DOLLAR FIFTY MAN

DIRECTOR: Mark Albiston, Louis Sutherland - (New Zealand)

Andy lives in a make-believe superhero world, circa 1970s New Zealand. Retreating into his imagination allows him to deal with playground bullies, but the real world—and his only friend Mary—needs Andy to count on himself instead. (15 mins.)


LITTLE CHILDREN, BIG WORDS

DIRECTOR: Lisa James Larsson - (Sweden)

When it’s Alex’s turn to tell his seven-year-old classmates what he wants to be when he grows up, an uncomfortable discussion begins about the meaning of an unknown but loaded word. (12 mins.)
