LIVE ACTION SHORTS (Running Time: 132 minutes) Several of you asked what we mean by “live action.” In this case, it refers to films involving real people or animals, as contrasted with animation or computer-generated effects.

 

Ennemis Interieurs: An interview at a local police station turns into an inquisition during which a French-Algerian born man sees himself accused of protecting the identities of possible terrorists. This close-up on France’s troubled history with its former colonies has one man controlling the fate of another with the stroke of a pen. Dir. Selim Aazzazi, France, 28 minutes

La Femme et le TGV: Elise Lafontaine has a secret routine. Every morning and evening for many years, she has been waving at the express train that passes her house. One fateful day, she finds a letter from the train conductor in her garden and her lonely life is turned upside down. She engages in a promising correspondence through poetic and thoughtful letters where the two anonymous writers share their world with each other until the day the train line get’s cancelled. The story is inspired by true events and stars César Award nominee Jane Birkin Dir. Timo von Gunten, Switzerland, 30 minutes

Silent Nights: Inger volunteers at a homeless shelter and falls in love with an illegal immigrant Kwame. Kwame moves in with Inger and they are happy for a while, until the day when Kwame’s mobile phone reveals everything about his secret life in Ghana. Dir. Aske Bang, Denmark, 30 minutes

Sing: Zsofi is struggling to fit in at her new school – singing in the school’s famous choir is her only consolation, but the choir director may not be the inspirational teacher everyone thinks she is. It will take Zsofi and her new friend Liza to uncover the cruel truth.
“Sing” is a childhood drama with a lot of music set in 1990s post-socialist Budapest. Based on a true story, it follows an award-winning school choir and the new girl in class facing a tough choice: to stand up against a corrupt system – or to fit quietly into it. Dir. Kristof Deak, Hungary, 25 minutes

Timecode: Parking lot security guard Luna is bored with her uneventful daily routine but a call about a customer complaint leads her to discover how the night guard, Diego, alleviates his boredom. Soon the pair develops a relationship by communicating through the garage’s CCTV footage. Dir. Juanjo Gimenez Pena, Spain, 15 minutes
