The Father / Bashtata

Directed by Kristina Grozeva & Petar Valchanov

Bulgaria / Greece, 2019, 90 min


After losing his wife Ivanka, Vasil believes that she is using his phone to reach him from beyond the grave, so he enlists the services of a psychic to try to make contact with her. His son Pavel tries to bring him to his senses, but Vasil stubbornly insists on doing things his own way… This small-scale family drama, about the difficulties of connecting with those close to us, includes many of the carefully arranged absurd or comic situations typical for the Bulgarian filmmaking duo.

Michelsen, an elderly truck driver, sets out on his last trip driving freight to the southern tip of Chilean Patagonia.

Last Visit / Akher Ziyarah
Directed by Abdulmohsen Aldhabaan
Saudi Arabia, 2019, 75 min


On the way to a wedding, Nasser finds out that his father is dying. He changes plans and heads straight off with his adolescent son Waleed to his dad’s small town. However, the strictly upheld customs they encounter in this rural environment start to affect Waleed and Nasser’s relationship. Using the story of a family encounter as its backdrop, the film adopts a realistic approach to discussing Islamic traditions while it examines the true nature of paternal love.

The Fading Village / Chun qu dong lai
Directed by Liu Feifang
China, 2019, 172 min


Unlike the other young people in their forlorn mountain village, Hou Junli has remained with his family instead of leaving for the city. The dilapidated houses continue to resist the snow and rain, but how long will this place exist if there is nobody left to carry on local work and traditions? A long-term observational documentary about a difficult life and the love of one’s native soil.

The Last Autumn / Síðasta haustið
Directed by Yrsa Roca Fannberg
Iceland, 2019, 78 min


If the world has an edge, then it is almost certainly visible from Iceland. On the outermost cape, beyond which there is only the inhospitable Arctic Ocean, lies a farm belonging to Úlfar and his wife. This autumn will be the last time their grandchildren come from the city to drive the sheep back down from the hills. An almost tangible cinematic fabric that weaves a tale of an abandoned place where the mist clings to the steel-blue surface of the sea and where the occasional human visitor is sometimes welcome.
