Time & Tickets

Christos Massalas / Fiction / Greece / 15’
This is the story of Copa-Loca, an abandoned Greek summer resort. Paulina is the girl at the heart of Copa-Loca. Everyone cares for her and she cares about everyone – in every possible way.

Solar Walk
Reka Bucsi / Animation / Denmark / 21’
Solar Walk shows the journey of individuals and their creations on through time and space. Any meaning of action is only existent from the perspective of the individual, but never mandatory when looking at it from the perspective of a solar system. It’s about the melancholy of accepting chaos as beautiful and cosmic. 

Kiem Holijanda

Andi really wants a phone to watch 5 minutes of free porn, and doesn't notice his brother is saying goodbye.

Black Line
Francesca Scalisi, Mark Olexa / Documentary / Switzerland / 11’
A woman fishing in turbid waters, a suffering nature, the broken chant of the muezzin, all linked by a thin, black line.

Hot Tea
Marcel Tigchelaar / Animation / The Netherlands / 2’
In this drawn animation without dialogue, a man indulges in the vapour of a glass of hot tea. He drifts off to a colourful world where scents seem to be visualised and assume physical powers. Just when the man’s pleasure builds up to a sensual climax, the glass throws a spanner in the works.

Olivia Kastebring, Julia Gumpert, Ulrika Bandeira / Documentary / Sweden / 18’
JUCK is a film which is a hybrid between documentary, dance and fiction. The film depicts the all-female dance group JUCK who made a name for themselves in 2013 with a video that became a viral hit all over the world. The word “JUCK” is Swedish for “HUMP” and their groundbreaking appearance pushed the boundaries for how we are used to seeing the female body. JUCK questions the positions of object and subject. They provoke, inspire and break norms. The film poses the question: what is femininity?
