Duration: 93’
Language: English
Subtitles: Greek
Country: USA
Director: Bo Burnham
Year: 2018

 

13-year-old Kayla is a girl full of confidence and good advice for everyone who needs it – at least that’s what she acts like in her online vlogs that she uploads to her YouTube channels, for her tiny audience of subscribers. In real life, however, Kayla is insecure and not particularly sociable (she was awarded “Most Quiet” in her class) and as she gets ready to start eighth grade, her anxiety is getting worse. She decides to expand her social circles, starting with a party she was invited to by a classmate, at the behest of her mother, which leads Kayla to a tumultuous evening.

A brilliant, multi-award-winning feature film (received the Best Original Screenplay Award from the Writers Guild of America and was nominated for a Golden Globe) about the seismic collision of the digital and the real self of a teenage trying to find her place in the world.

Director: Dorte Bengtson
Year: 2018

 

Vitello lives with his mother in a small house and, by and large, he’s doing well: he eats a lot of spaghetti with butter and shredded cheese, he has two very annoying best friends and he’s friends with William, the spoiled brat. There is, however, a problem: Vitello doesn’t have a father. Or rather, he does have one, but he doesn’t know who he might be. His mother describes the father as “a scoundrel” and refuses to reveal anything else about him, but Vitello is not satisfied and resolves to track him down. But, when he does, he discovers him to be someone he would never have expected… Yet another cinematic adaptation of the popular Danish series of novels which manages too keep young audiences on the edge of their seats, looking for the next new adventure from the popular little rapscallion.

Little Chuskit’s dream to finally go to school is suddenly interrupted, when a horrible accident renders her paraplegic. The little girl is stuck inside the four walls of her house and her only company is her strict grandpa. And, although she holds on to the hope of one day going to school, her grandpa is constantly trying to convince her that a school would not be able to support her special needs. As the conflict with her grandpa gets worse, Chuskits parents and brother cannot pick a side, trapped between the obligation to respect the views of their elders and their desire to encourage the little one. Chuskit must convince her grandpa to embrace her wishes, otherwise she will have to accept a reality that her grandpa has chosen for her.

After a summer full of fantastic adventures with his little brother and his best friend Sophie, Sune returns to school to start 4th Grade only to face an unpleasant surprise: a new classmate who is not only talented, popular and American, but is also called Sune. However, Sune deploys his little brother’s formidable imagination to help keep Sophie close, as she has become enamoured with Sune’s new nemesis, who happens to also be her new co-star in the school play. The consequences of Sune’s “transformation” promise to give us an entertaining comedy while audiences of all ages will relate to the universal fear of not being good enough.
