Synopsis:
In a sinister hospital, modification of physical beauty is not at all what you would expect in The Wonder Hospital (USA/South Korea). Twenty-year-old Stanley’s uneventful life with his clockwork family is turned upside down by a beautiful young lady in Stanley Pickle (UK). A young man goes on a powerful emotional journey through time and space in A Lost and Found Box of Human Sensation (Germany), featuring the voice of Joseph Fiennes. Jealousy and suspicion bubble to the surface under the photographer’s relentless gaze in A Family Portrait (UK). What you see is invariably not what you get in Moskito Bravo (France). Colorful concertinas march and swirl across the screen in The Bellows March (USA). Sam lives a relaxed life in the forest with his hot dog van and his bear buddy in Sam’s Hot Dogs (UK). Seed (Czech Republic/USA) features a surreal stop-motion world where an egg and an apple build competing broadcast towers. Lipsett Diaries (Canada) is a moving, expressionistic portrait of the troubled life of filmmaker Arthur Lipsett. Two young men named Tord spend some quality time together in the whimsical Tord and Tord (Sweden).
