These formally bold nonfiction films offer portraits of life both past and present. A psychologically distraught prisoner tells her story in Moriom (Switzerland). A casting-call peers past fiction and reminds us of the human cost of war in The Face of Ukraine: Casting Oksana Baiul (Australia). A Rust Belt city attempts to change its reputation in Balloonfest (U.S.). Refugees wait in limbo while voices from the past linger in Now: End of Season (Lebanon/Syria). A phone call from a brother to a sister turns into an astonishing personal and familial portrait in Chekhov (U.S.). Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel walks us through his grandest accomplishments in Jean Nouvel: Reflections (U.S.). In Home of the Brave (Sweden), a small Swedish town and home of a Blackhawks player makes painstaking preparations for a fleeting glimpse of the Stanley Cup.
