306 HOLLYWOOD

Dir: Elan Bogarín & Jonathan Bogarín

When their beloved grandmother Annette dies, siblings Jonathan and Elan set to work at 306 Hollywood Avenue, transforming her home into an archaeological dig, in the attempt to bring lively memories of Annette into the physical world.

BECOMING ANIMAL + Q&A

Dir: Emma Davie & Peter Mettler

A moose sits chewing in the snowy woods, sunlight shimmers on a buffalo, steam rolls over a spectacular geyser. In sublime landscapes, philosopher David Abram questions the connection between humans and nature, and how perception passes between living beings.

EVELYN + Q&A

Dir: Orlando von Einsiedel

Director Orlando von Einsiedel turns the camera on himself in this deeply personal film, as he and his siblings embark on a journey in remembrance of their brother, Evelyn, who took his own life over a decade ago.

MAGIC MEDICINE + Q&A

Dir: Monty Wates

Can magic mushrooms cure depression? Over 2 years, filmmaker Monty Wates was given exclusive access to the first ever medical trial to give psilocybin (the psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms) to a group of volunteers suffering from clinical depression.

PUTIN'S WITNESSES

Dir: Vitaly Mansky

An eerie fly-on-the-wall documentary with intimate access to Putin from 1999-2000, covering the president’s first election and offering a rare, up-close portrait of Putin as he flourishes from Deputy Prime Minister to one of the world’s most powerful leaders.

SO HELP ME GOD

Dir: Jean Libon & Yves Hinant

Anne Gruwez is a Brussels-based judge with a lot of character. She faces her defendants with a steely confidence and lays down the law with a light-hearted, no-nonsense force, and a nonchalance for the macabre.

THE PRICE OF EVERYTHING

Dir: Nathaniel Kahn

Director Nathaniel Kahn talks to artists, collectors and auctioneers in pursuit of the meaning and consequences of artworks selling in auctions for millions of dollars. It’s a gross, peculiar world riddled with the steaming rich trying to keep up with the Joneses.

THEATRE OF WAR

Dir: Lola Arias

The Falklands War was a particularly brutal chapter in Thatcher’s legacy. Uniting British and Argentinian veterans in an experimental set of staged sequences, director Lola Arias reawakens memories and unsettled hostilities.
