West Side Story

Manhattan, Upper West Side, 1957. Against the backdrop of the decaying tenements in the San Juan Hill neighbourhood and the constant threat of the wrecking ball, two warring gangs–tough Riff’s Jets and swaggering Bernardo’s Puerto Rican Sharks–fight for supremacy. Now, with a once-and-for-all, winner-takes-all rumble on the cards, an unexpected whirlwind romance at the high-school dance between former Jet brawler Tony and Bernardo’s delicate little sister María sets the stage for an all-out turf war. But what’s a gang without its territory? Above all, when the future is uncertain, what’s hope without love?

Quo Vadis Aida?

Aida, a local teacher-turned-interpreter working at a Dutch-run UN base near the town of Srebenica in 1995 Bosnia, finds herself with her back to the wall. As the Serbian army takes over, and the gun-toting men of General Ratko Mladic close in on the allegedly safe zone of Srebenica, thousands of Bosnians flock into the base camp begging for shelter, including Aida’s family. Now, against the backdrop of false promises, bureaucracy, confusion, and fruitless, white-knuckle negotiations in the name of peace, Aida risks everything to protect her husband and two sons. But time is running out, and desperate Aida is looking for logic where there is none. Where are you going, Aida?

Babyteeth

When seriously ill teenager Milla falls madly in love with smalltime drug dealer Moses, it’s her parents’ worst nightmare. But as Milla’s first brush with love brings her a new lust for life, things get messy and traditional morals go out the window. Milla soon shows everyone in her orbit – her parents, Moses, a sensitive music teacher, a budding child violinist, and a disarmingly honest pregnant neighbour – how to live like you have nothing to lose. What might have been a disaster for the Finlay family instead leads to letting go and finding grace in the glorious chaos of life. Babyteeth joyously explores how good it is not to be dead yet and how far we will go for love.

Another Round

Amid an ongoing midlife crisis, Martin (Mads Mikkelsen), Tommy (Thomas Bo Larsen), Nikolaj, and Peter–a close-knit group of friends, colleagues, and high school teachers–find themselves faced with stale careers, failing marriages, and the cruel certainty of lost youth. Then, after a long, booze-fuelled night in town, the companions hit on the idea to keep themselves constantly semi-inebriated, inspired by an untried scientific theory claiming that when people maintain a golden 0.05% Blood Alcohol Concentration at all times, they are more relaxed, poised, and self-confident. So, without delay, the grizzled friends set rules and start observing the effects of sustaining that perfect, low-level buzz, one glass at a time. However, are they prepared for the dangers and the negative psychological impact of the intoxicating social experiment?

Yearning to own a small patch of land and be more than a chicken sexer, the ambitious paterfamilias, Jacob Yi, relocates his Korean-American family: sceptical wife, Monica, and their children, David and Anne, from California to 1980s rural Arkansas, to start afresh and capture the elusive American Dream. However, new beginnings are always challenging, and to find out what is best for the family, let alone start a 50-acre farm to grow and sell Korean fruits and vegetables, is easier said than done. But, amid sincere promises, cultural unease, fleeting hopes, and the ever-present threat of financial disaster, Jacob is convinced that he has found their own slice of Eden in the rich, dark soil of Arkansas.
