The lineup includes the following:

• “Big City”: a nine-minute narrative about making a friend on a ride home.
• “Anna”: a 24-minute narrative about Anna who works in a sewing workshop and finds herself unexpectedly alone without her son on a hot summer day. She sets out for a night roaming the streets of her small desert town, looking for a man who can touch her, even if it is for one brief moment.
• “Bende Sira” (It’s My Turn): a 10-minute narrative about a declaration of love to cinema, a play between kids in an urban surrounding.
• “Zela Trovke” (Cutting Grass): a 13-minute documentary about an old moritat (folk song about crime) from Slovakia recovered by the Holland Baroque Society included in its Barbaric Beauty program. The orchestra’s violinist, Maite Larburu, unveils the song’s hidden secrets.
The screenings will be followed by a question and answer period with festival director Michael Harrington.
