Panah Panahi, Pantea Panahiha, Hassan Madjouni, Rayan Sarlak, Amin Simiar
Description: It takes the tradition of the Iranian road-trip movie and adds unexpected twists and turns. It follows a family of four two middle-aged parents and their sons, one a taciturn adult, the other an ebullient six-year-old as they drive across the Iranian countryside. Throughout the trip, they bond over memories of the past, grapple with fears of the unknown, and fuss over their sick dog. Unspoken tensions arise and the film builds emotional momentum as it slowly reveals the furtive purpose of their journey. The result is a humanist drama that offers an authentic, raw, and deeply sincere observation of an Iranian family preparing to part with one of their own.

Radu Jude, Serban Lazarovici, Bogdan Zamfir, Ioana Iacob, Big World Pictures
Description: In 1981, chalk slogans written in uppercase letters started appearing in public spaces in the Romanian city of Botosani. They demanded freedom, alluded to the democratic developments taking place in Romania's socialist sister countries, or simply called for improvements in the food supply. The culprit was Mugur Calinescu, a teenager who was still at school at the time and whose case is documented in the files of the Romanian secret police. Theatre director Gianina Carbunariu created a documentary play based on this material. Besides presenting the play, Radu Jude also uses archival footage from Romanian TV of the era. Cooking shows alternate with interrogations, transcripts of wiretapped phone calls with recommendations to exercise instead of taking sedatives. This dialectical montage creates an image of a dictatorial surveillance state, drawing on the authorized popular entertainment of the Ceausescu regime to unmask it.
