Twilight

World Premiere
Heather McIntosh, Laura Wayne, Gerardo Carballo Valiño, Giovanbattista Tusa and Kenny Ozier Lafontaine | | 7:40 mins

The state of twilight can be described as a period which simultaneously wanes, and yet remains. It's a period in which time seems to hold back and become frozen. This film is a portrait of that very twilight period in the nation of Cuba. It documents a country that is wandering between two worlds; one dead, and one powerless to be born.

As buildings crumble and revolutionaries age, an old man who has lived through the glory of the nation's past now observes the stagnation and weariness that pervade his beloved city, Havana. The film captures Cuba poised between a past that has lost its meaning and a future that remains uncertain.

Timeless River

UK Premiere
Anja Medved, Nadja Velušček | , | 63 mins

The Isonzo has always been a borderline river. Its relatively short course links two different worlds: the Alps and the Mediterranean. It seems to have two personalities, mirrored in its two names: Soča, a feminine name, and Isonzo, a masculine one. Rich in contradictions and very beautiful, the river is also dangerous; famous for its emerald colour and the bloody battles that have taken place along its banks. Who does the Isonzo belong to? Slovenia steals it from Italy with its dams, Italy wastes its waters through a reckless irrigation regime. Construction companies plunder its gravel, and industry pollutes its waters. Amongst all these competing interests the river is forgotten. This beautifully shot film travels the length of the ever-changing river and speaks of our troubled relationship with Nature.
