  1. Longwave

    Lionel Baier / World Cinema / Switzerland, France, Portugal / 2013 / Comedy, History, LGBT / 85 mins
    A Swiss Radio crew is sent to get upbeat stories in Fascist Portugal in 1974, only to fall into the heart of the Revolution to rid Portugal of dictatorship. The Portuguese “Carnation Revolution” in which only six people died, ending 42 years of oppression, was a precursor to Spain’s peaceful liberation and later, the peaceful revolutions of Eastern Europe. With great characters, this smart comedy is based on real radio reporters who were honored by the French. This is their story... and quite a story it is!

  6. Vis à Vis

    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.
