with Francois Morel , Jacques Gamblin , Maria De Medeiros , François Damiens & Dominique Pinon

Language: French
Produced by Xavier Delmas

One spring weekend on the Atlantic coast, two pensioners on their way to their second home — a maisonette no bigger than a postage stamp — cross paths with a couple of punks whose vacation residence is a house drawn in the sand. At the hotel, the lives of both couples are turned upside down by a lost kite. It is a weekend marked by the meeting of destinies, social classes, generations, and feelings of grief and of joy. A real weekend by the sea.

Un Lac

A film by Philippe Grandrieux

2008 - France - Drama - 1.85 DCP - 90 min.

The story takes place in a country about which we know nothing: a country of snow and dense forests, somewhere in the North. A family lives in an isolated house near a lake. Alexi, the brother, is a young man with a pure heart. A woodcutter. An ecstatic, prey to epileptic fits, he is entirely opened to the nature that surrounds him. Alexi is terribly close to his younger sister, Hege. Their blind mother, their father, and their little brother are the silent witnesses to their overwhelming love. A stranger arrives, a young man barely older than Alexi…

Eldorado

A film by Markus Imhoof

2018 - Germany/Switzerland - Documentary - 1.85 - 92 min.

In the lean years of WW II, the family of Swiss director Markus Imhoof took in Giovanna, an Italian refugee part of a limited-term program for children. When her stay ended, Giovanna was forced to return to Italy, where she died of illness soon after. With this early experience as a point of entry to the ongoing refugee crisis, Imhoof takes us on a journey with extraordinary access through the Italian warships of Operation Mare Nostrum, refugee camps handled by the Italian Mafia, asylum hearings with local authorities, all designed to turn back refugees at all levels. What emerges is a stark picture of a human tragedy and the biggest mass displacement of people since World War II.
