FREE FALL 
Russia, 29 minutes
Director: Alexey Slinkin
A man tries to commit suicide by jumping off a dangerous cliff, but is interrupted by a woman who, by chance, decided to do the same thing, in the same place, at the same time. The woman decides to postpone her attempt and disappears. The man stays there and waits for her to return, meanwhile saving other people who come to the cliff to end their lives.

THE NEPHEW 
France, 20 minutes
Director: Wilhelm Kuhn

Set in Burgundy, France, at the end of World War II, Uncle Jules has prepared a very non-traditional gift for his nephew Louis’ 15th birthday. Eager to turn this little bugger into a real man, Jules takes Louis to his favorite brothel, all expenses paid. Through the evening's bittersweet encounters, Louis discovers the adult world, in all its cruelty.
Expected to attend: Director Wilhelm Kuhn


YAKOV IN SNOW
Russia30 minutes
Director: Dmitriy Orlov

There is a house within the snow. There's a table in the house. There's food on that table and there are two educated men talking with each other. But who are they?

STORMCHASER
USA, 28 minutes
Director: Gretl Claggett

All Bonnie Blue ever wanted was to chase tornadoes with her Dad. But dreams die with time. Now, she’s become a different kind of storm chaser — hawking storm-doors “door-to-door” for her charismatic boss, Flip Smyth, a cult-like father figure to Bonnie and his tribe of young salesmen. But when Bonnie realizes that Flip’s sales doctrine of “Flip the Switch!” is just a way to exploit customers, a different kind of switch flips inside Bonnie — unleashing an inner and outer storm of violence.
 Expected to attend: Director Gretl Claggett and actor Stephen Plunkett
