The Kingdom of Men (Hong Kong)
by Sham Kwan Yin

An experimental short integrated the creative process of contemporary theatre art in filmmaking. Exercising the concept of the theatre of absurd, the screenplay depicts a group of jailers who are ridiculously assigned by the authority to endlessly guard an long abandoned ancient prison - how would the jailers live their lives? How would the protagonist ‘boss’ who only knows obedience in his life face the absurd situation of guarding the empty cells? Three new recruits, educated together by the country, embarked on different journeys after relentless fighting, competition, and conspiracy. What would be their upcoming fate? A deserter realizes the absurdity of such situation - his escape has shaken the worlds of the remaining jailers: should they succumb to the powerful and guard the empty cells or should they pursue their freedom? - if the creation of the ideal kingdom, 'the Kingdom of Men, need us to sacrifice our free will, is that the right thing to do? The question remains.

Kev (Belgium)
by Clémence Hébert

Kevin is a child who runs away, breaks things, cannot speak, has a partly cut-off ear. The type of autism he suffers from is said to be so severe that most institutions refuse to care for him. The filmmaker has been visiting him regularly with her video camera since he was 14 years old; now he is 18. The film follows him from one living situation to another, without any certainty about the future, and invites us to approach an entirely different relationship to the world.
