A Still from Becoming Animal

The film Becoming Animal directed by Emma Davie and Peter Mettler, filmed in the Grand Teton National Park and made in collaboration with the philosopher David Abram, will send the audience to spaces where people and animals meet. The film explores the experience of nature through paradoxical use of numerous sensory means of cinema.

The director Emma Davie will also be a member of the jury of the festival’s international competition and a speaker at the DOCU/CLASS workshop.



A Still from Song Titled 328

 

Song Titled 328 by Aliaksandra Dynko and Tanya Haurylchyk will reveal the problem of criminalization of drug storing and use. The number 328 refers to the infamous “anti-drugs” article of the Criminal Code of Belarus, according to which, as the film’s protagonists themselves say, you can end up in jail for 9 years just for some “dust in your pocket.” After losing a friend to ecstasy overdose, the film’s protagonists experience the consequences of this repressive government policy and try to regain control over their own lives.
