COMEDY
SNOW IN VENICE                                  
by Elliott Covrigaru
Comedy - France - 2016 - 80min 
 
Serial (Bad) Weddings meets The Dinner Game. Christophe, a paling playwright, and his leading actress and partner Patricia, get invited for the weekend by a former classmate preparing to marry his naive girlfriend. During dinner, fed-up with Christophe's attitude, Patricia pretends to be an immigrant from a made-up country, and the quid-pro-quo quickly spirals out of control... A pitiless comedy about conformism, selfishness and good humanitarian feelings.

'An indie stalwart’s refined leap into the mainstream... Z has proved that the spirit of the New Taiwan Cinema remains very much alive.'

In order to confront the ghosts that haunt him, Palestinian director Raed Andoni assembles an eclectic group of ex-prisoners to build a replicate of Al-Moskobiya, Israel's main interrogation centre, where he was himself jailed at age 18. From fragmentary memory, day after day, they give shape to the interrogation centre they all experienced, and re-enact its stories. As the walls of the cells rise, the tongues and the emotions loosen.

TV SERIES
REY'S EDUCATION                                  
by Santiago Esteves
Drama Thriller - Argentina - 2017 - 8 episodes x 30min
 
Escaping from his criminal baptism, Reynaldo Galíndez, alias “Rey”, lands in the patio of the house inhabited by Carlos Vargas, a retired security guard. Vargas offers him a deal: the young boy will repair the damage caused to his home when falling - in return for not being handed over to the police. The lessons given to the teenager by the old guard will give rise to a relationship not unlike the old legends of educating a king (for the “Rey” of his name, meaning “king”). But the agreement will start to fall apart when the loose ends of the robbery Reynaldo had participated in start wrapping themselves round them…
