MADRE (MOTHER)
Dir. Rodrigo Sorogoyen, Spain, 19 minutes

A single mother receives a call from her seven-year-old son who is on vacation with his father in the French Basque Country. At first the call is a cause for joy, but soon it becomes a horrible nightmare when the child tells her that he is alone and cannot find his father who left a while ago.


FAUVE

Dir. Jeremy Comte, Canada, 17 minutes

Set in a surface mine, two boys sink into a seemingly innocent power game with Mother Nature as the sole observer. Alone in the wild the two boys play around. Complicity evolves into a confrontation where one wants to have power over the other. Taking proportions larger than nature, this game will not prove as harmless as they thought.

MARGUERITTE
Dir. Marianne Farley, Canada, 19 minutes

An aging women and her nurse develop a friendship that inspires her to unearth unacknowledged longing and thus help her make peace with her past.


DETAINMENT

Dir. Vincent Lambe, Ireland, 30 minutes

Two ten year-old boys are detained by police under suspicion of abducting and murdering a toddler. A true story based on interview transcripts from the James Bulgar case which shocked the world in 1993 and continues to incite public outrage across the UK today.


SKIN

Dir. Guy Nattiv, USA, 20 minutes

In a small supermarket in a blue collar town, a black man smiles at a 10 year old white boy across the checkout aisle. This innocuous moment sends two gangs into a ruthless war that ends with a shocking backlash.
