Stirring performances and stunning visuals are on full display in this eclectic program of films exploring love, paranoia, and the need to understand.

From acclaimed auteur Yorgos Lanthimos, Nimic (Germany/U.K./U.S.) details a strange encounter on a train and its surprising consequences. A marriage is tested when a woman accompanies her husband to an audition and discovers her own talent for acting in The Role (Iran). Fish infest the piping of a dilapidated apartment in Pond (U.S.), a stunning portrait of a mother and daughter. The Last Trip to the Seaside (Romania) exposes cultural tensions as misunderstandings spread throughout a train car. A woman wanders a golf course looking for her late husband’s grave, searching desperately for Blessed Land (Vietnam). When two friends accidentally photograph an Automatic (Greece) rifle, paranoia begins to take hold. A woman and her boyfriend try to find peace on a holiday when the trauma of an old wound resurfaces in Watermelon Juice (Spain).
