Mashed Potatoes

A surreal story of about indifference, negligence and apathy. Critic about materialism. How items that people think are worth something, are worth nothing. The most important thing proves to be the sentimental connection with your own past and memories.
Directed by Juha LIlja (Sweden)

The colors of “Le Bonheur (Happiness)”

The choices of color in shot compositions have a significant impact on the narrative and the emotions the director tries to create. In “Happiness”, every shot is carefully composed, where all the colors match and create a beautiful composition that could easily be a painting.

Directed by Teddo November (USA)

All the Cities of the North

An example of the power of the visuals and a very poetic movie, not only because of its shot composition but also for the voiceover with texts and a Serbian poem, increasing the dramatic intensity.

A withdrawn mid-twenties man named Jarrett attends a New Year’s Eve party roiling with hidden tensions and some particularly dangerous resolutions.
Directed by Jason Sealy (USA)

Directed by Mia Basile and Alexander Basile (Germany)
