I AM YOURS

DIRECTOR: Iram Haq - NORWAY

Mina is a young single mother living in Oslo with her six-year-old son Felix. A Norwegian-Pakistani, she has a troublesome relationship with her family, who blame her for her divorce. Understandably: she’s a natural flirt, and while she has plenty of male companions, they tend not to hang around for long. One day, Mina meets Jesper, a Swedish film director, and they fall head over heels in love, but boy and man don’t exactly see eye to eye.... “I wanted to make a very naked and true story.... Often we see female characters being as good a person as possible....

IDA

DIRECTOR: Pawel Pawlikowski - POLAND

Orphaned during World War II and raised in a rural convent, Anna is about to take her own vows. But before becoming a nun, the mother superior insists she visit her last remaining relative. Aunt Wanda, Anna discovers, is a worldly intellectual—an embittered ex-judge in Warsaw—and a woman who deals with her painful memories with liberal doses of sex and drink. An offhand revelation about Anna’s true identity sets in motion a road trip through the Polish countryside during which these two strikingly different women confront devastating family secrets and postwar demons. One of the most internationally acclaimed films of...

IN BLOOM

DIRECTOR: Nana Ekvtimishvili, Simon Gross - GEORGIA

It’s 1992 in Tbilisi, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, but 14-year-old best friends Eka and Natia are unfazed by the fear and insecurity lurking around them. As civil war rages in the rest of the country, the girls are preoccupied with school gossip, learning how to smoke cigarettes, and flirting with the neighborhood boys. Their lives change when Natia receives a pistol as an unexpected love gesture, and suddenly the girls must face circumstances beyond their control. Loosely based on Ekvtimishvili’s experiences, In Bloom portrays distinctively fierce female characters who struggle to escape their turbulent families and male-dominated...
