Oasis (Justine Martin, CA 2022, 15')
Camping together in the woods is what the twins Raphaël and Rémi like doing best. But Raphaël has an intellectual disability, and their paths will soon diverge. During this one last summer, time seems to stand still for a while.

Drawn in flowing lines, this short animated documentary tells the story of Manel Botão, the filmmaker’s uncle. Conversations around the table with relatives paint a portrait of an extraordinary man during a dark period in Portuguese history.
Elsa (Julia Jansch, US 20220, 15')

A rugged youth documentary about 14-year-old kickboxing talent Esma, who wants to become the world’s best fighter. She also lives in constant fear of losing her mother, who’s gravely ill. Dutch screening.
