  • The Revenants

    2013. Germany. Directed by Andreas Bolm. An older couple dwells in the dense forest, and a boy wanders through the green landscape as well. The characters seem to be in a dreamlike state or daze, caught in the aftermath of an sinister event or, perhaps, suspended in time. Voiceovers and a radio news report provide clues to how these lives intersect, while sounds from the forest and live music infuse the picture with quiet mystery. In German; English subtitles. 62 min.

  • Kalifornia

    2013. Germany. Directed by Laura Mahlberg. Pavel is on the road, but where to? California, he tells anyone who asks. We see him walk down empty roads and wait expectantly at disused bus stations, but the German countryside stretches as far as the eye can see. Laura Mahlberg adeptly crafts an archetypal itinerant everyman, filled with opportunity but shrouded in melancholy. In German; English subtitles. 27 min.
