    Nevio Marasovic / Croatian New Wave Spotlight, World Cinema / Croatia / 2013 / Comedy, Drama / 81 mins
    Rising star director Nevio Maravic, a cross between Woody Allen and a Croatian Alexander Payne, has a relaxed approach to filmmaking. This bittersweet comedy follows a film director and his leading man to the remote island of Vis to work on the script. Due to the isolation they face during the winter, they unexpectedly face their own frustrations which are constantly intertwined with the film's plot! The film is praised for its fantastic scenery and a delightful score by Andrew Bird.

  2. Within the Eye of the Storm

    Shelley Hermon / Cinema of Conscience / Israel, Palestine / History, News, War / 74 mins
    Bassam and Rami, a Palestinian and Israeli, were once dedicated fighters willing to kill and be killed by one another for the sake of their nations. Yet each one of them came face to face with the price of war when their daughters were killed in the conflict. Left with the excruciating pain of bereavement, they chose to do the unexpected. They set out on a joint journey to humanize the very enemy, which took the dearest thing from them and prevent the vicious cycle of retaliation in themselves and their societies. Along the way they reveal the friendship and humor that keeps them alive.
