PROGRAMME

MY BROTHER

Democracy is at stake, always. And I think Richard Rorty suggested that  the survival of the species is linked to our ability to radically extend our  sense of family. With this, My Brother is a structuralist-essay document about my brother, Phil. I hate him and I love him.

REPUBLIKA
Antonia Begušić, HR, 12min. 
…” - Well, Adeimantus, has our state now grown to its full size? - Perhaps. 
- Then, where in it shall we find justice or injustice? If they have come in  with one of the elements we have been considering, can you say with  which one? 
- I have no idea, Socrates; unless it be somewhere in peoples dealings  with one another. “ (Republic, Plato)

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN 
Liam Torres, USA, 15min.
Jenny is about to commit a heinous crime due to abuse of the mind, and  neglect of the heart. Only through the good-natured acts of her closest  friend, Lucy, and the most fortuitous acquaintance with the local town's dance mentor, Will Power, Jenny realizes at the last moment before  committing the crime that her long-dead dad would have liked more for her  than this. Jenny remembers that life is worth living regardless of the toxic narcissistic circumstances she's been thrown into. 

AND THAT'S FOR THIS CHRISTMAS 
Peter Vulchev, BG, 15min.
While preparing the details for his own funeral, an elderly man realises that  he will be celebrating Christmas alone. Unable to fall asleep, he decides to  spend the holiday at the grave of his deceased wife.

AH-MA: A TALE OF TWO GENERATIONS  
Ying Chu, AU, 16min.
Ah-Ma is a captivating narrative that delves into the lives of two remarkable  women from different worlds and generations. Born in Taiwan, Na-Na's  early years were colored by the enchanting presence of her grandmother,  Ah-Ma. However, at the tender age of four, she returned to Australia,  leaving behind the profound influence of Ah-Ma, a celebrated Taiwanese  Opera actress renowned for her powerful performances in Gezaixi. Ah Ma's legacy imprinted deeply upon Na-Na, igniting in her a fervent desire to follow in her grandmother's footsteps and become an opera actress  herself. As the film unfolds, the haunting melodies of Gezaixi's songs  resound, serving as a poignant backdrop to the emotions of longing and  connection that thread through the narrative.
