2020 SHORT FILM BLOCKS


Block #2 - documentary (75 minutes)


1. Futhark

An exploration of the world of magic, rituals, Nordic myths and

        runes. A philosophical journey into the past in search of the

        origins of the present, providing a pretext to reflect on man's place

        in the world, his relationship with nature or the loss of authentic

        spirituality.

          Dir. Konrad Kultys - Poland 2020 (12 min)

People of all ages pray – children right through to the elderly.

        Japanese have been praying this way for the last thousand years.
