Grandma Lo-Fi

Amma Lo-fi (original title)


A film by Orri Jónsson, Kristín Björk Kristjánsdóttir, Ingibjörg Birgisdóttir

At the tender age of 70, Grandma Lo-Fi, started recording and releasing her own music straight from the living room. 7 years later she had 59 albums to her name with more than 600 songs – an eccentric myriad of catchy compositions mixing in her pets, found toys, kitchen percussions and Casio keyboards. Sigrídur Níelsdóttir is her name, and before long the Icelandic/Danish musician became an adored cult figure in the Icelandic music scene. Shot mostly on Super-8 and 16mm ‘Grandma Lo-fi’ is a cinematic tribute to her boundless creativity, created by three musicians and artists whom she inspired.

Approved for Adoption (original title)


A film by JUNG and Laurent BOILEAU

Cartoonist. 42 years old according to his civil status, Jung prefers to place his birth at the age of 5, when a policeman found him wandering alone on the streets of Seoul. He is one of those 200 000 adopted Koreans spread around the world. Jung decided to return, for the first time, in South Korea, in order to breathe the air of his home country, tread the land of his ancestors, and maybe find traces of his biological mother. This trip of reconciliation with his roots and with himself – shot as a documentary — leads our character to recall – in animation – the child he once was and the winding path that made him grow up, until the encounter with his wife, an adopted Korean herself. This travel in time – the present of the trip and the memory of the past – will push him little by little towards a peaceful cohabitation between his inner diversities.

A film by Anca Damian

The animated documentary feature-length “Crulic – The Path to Beyond” tells the life’s story of Crulic, the 33 years old Romanian who died in a Polish prison while making hunger strike. The acclaimed Romanian actor, Vlad Ivanov, narrates Crulic’s ironic voice over from beyond the grave. A strong visual style, the result of beautiful hand drawn, collage, stop-motion and cut-cut animation techniques, blend to create a striking, surprisingly integrated and memorable film.
