Douggy dir Matvey Fiks
USA/Russia, 2017, (19mins) L:

Tow-truck driver Douggy’s mind is on a series of unanswered phone calls as he goes through the motions of his last two night shifts. Fiks renders his routine’s quietude and rusty infrastructure in warm 16mm grain. Previously Screened: Locarno Film Festival, New York Film Festival  

Robin (feature) – dir Toby Schmutzler, Kevin Schmutzler
Germany /South Africa (75 mins) L: English, German

A man of words is forced to become a man of action as John discovers the secret bucket list of his terminally ill son Robin. The two secretly disappeared from a hospital to experience a father-son adventure in South Africa and fulfill the boy’s greatest wishes. Later the police pursue John for kidnapping. However, a lingering question remains – Where is Robin?
