A deeply wealthy American and his attractive wife, a British DJ suffering from memory lapses, two Serbian tourists, a Lebanese immigrant stranded on the shore, a Turkish merchant and an artist couple interact at a seaside tavern, as the owner struggles to keep the business afloat against her brother's will.
Set against a backdrop of luscious Greek nature, Serbian producer/director Vladan Nikolic builds a rich tapestry of diverse characters, whose encounters and conflicts give rise to hilarity, question reality and stir up emotions. One of the most affectionate and optimistic films of this year’s festival.

    Schneider vs. Bax

    Schneider vs. Bax

    A paid assassin is asked to kill a writer on his birthday but the soon-to-be victim receives an unexpected visit from his daughter. Naturally, nothing goes according to plan. Our favorite Dutch director orchestrates a feisty black comedy, starring himself.

    Hector

    Hector

    Peter Mullan delivers a devastating performance as Hector, a vagrant who embarks on an adventurous journey from Scotland to London, hoping to arrive at the homeless shelter in time for Christmas. The first-time director handles the main character's traumatic past masterfully, elevating his personal tragedy to a social issue that concerns us all.

    Nasty Baby

    Nasty Baby

    Sebastián Silva, Chile's rising star and the man behind "Magic Magic", directs Kristen Wiig and TV on the Radio frontman Tunde Adebimpe in a contemporary tragicomedy with a shocking finale. An interracial gay couple use their best friend as a surrogate mother, but a once harmless neighbor won't leave them in peace.

    Unexpected 

    Unexpected 

    An unexpected bond develops between a student and her teacher when they both find out they're pregnant at the same time, as they deal with the challenges of motherhood from diametrically different perspectives. An endlessly generous film with two fittingly affectionate performances by Cobie Smulders and young Gail Bean.

    Elephant Song

    Elephant Song

    A psychiatrist suddenly disappears and only one of his disturbed patients knows what happened, but he won't give it up so easily. Xavier Dolan, the enfant terrible of Canadian cinema, delivers an extraordinary performance that elevates this psychological drama of subtle tensions and unexpected plot twists.
