The spectators will go down to the underground in search of a light in Eduardo Williams' "That I'm falling" I Que Je Tombe Tout le Temps (France, 2013), follow two Polish sisters who are looking for their mother in "Out of Reach" (Poland, 2011) by Jakub Stozek, and witness a rather unexpected incident at a convenience store in the animation "Blind Spot" (France, 2007).
Directors Nedeljkovic & Majdak from Serbia take the audience on an extraordinary trip to Rabbitland (2012), while Jenny Toivoniemi shows a date of a different kind in her film "The Date" (Finland, 2012), and finally Sam French invites the audience to join in the world of Afghanistan's "Buzkhasi Boys" (Afghanistan, 2011) to see a different story of the coming of age of two best friends.
