"Broken Palace" [Canada/Ross Munro/6 min.]
With only a precious few single-screen heritage theaters remaining (and those only just barely hanging on with a stay of execution from the wrecking ball’s relentless path), the documentary short “Broken Palace” takes the viewer on a nostalgic and bittersweet journey into this once-grand movie-going experience, by creating a living and breathing sensory journey through music, spoken word, and the haunting images of the formerly glorious cinematic palace.
"Two Worlds" [Poland/Maciej Adamek/52 min.]
Three people, two ways of perceiving reality, one family. This is a portrait of deaf parents and their 12-year-old daughter Laura, who takes on the role of her parents’ mouths and ears to help them in everyday activities such as buying coal. She is also the medium that introduces the viewer to the daily life of people with disabilities. Not only is she the narrator, but also the transmitter of emotions.
