Bee Whisperer (Dir: Dhivya Kate Chetty)

Using nothing more than smoke and a t-shirt, septuagenarian Rastafarian, Barry, can often be found rescuing swarms and teaching bee-keeping around Liverpool. A beautifully moving meditation on the cycle of life, belonging, and the centrality of bees to human existence.

My Mother’s Tongue (Dir: Sapana Pun)

An exploration of the encounter of different languages, the shapes of these languages and the difficulty in grasping new sounds with a tongue that is accustomed to the movements of its mother tongue.

There Are Lights (Dir: Nadia Emam)

Menna and her father recently moved from North Africa to the North of England, to an isolated seaside town with its identity built around a gothic novel. Their attempts to adjust, or refusal to do so, begins to drive them apart. On Halloween night, the two finally must confront their differences.

Life, In There (Dir: Rozalinda Borcila)

X is a former employee at a detention facility for undocumented migrant children run by Heartland Alliance in Chicago. In intimate and secretive conversations spread out over months, he gradually reveals how the space-time of daily life inside these jails is organised, managed, and regulated.

Mogoneba, memories of a journey (Dir: Mar Garro Lleonart)

It was in 2003 when Sofiko and her family were forced to abandon their motherland, Georgia, and walk across Europe. In conversations between mother and daughter, they recall their odysseic trip.

The Place That Is Ours (Dir: Dorothy Allen-Pickard, Zena Agha)

A daughter returns to her father's village in Palestine, which was destroyed in 1948. She journeys through unfamiliar landscapes and is confronted with the reality of her own exile.

Not Go Gentle (Dir: Sasha Ihnatovich)

Idyllic villages hide traces of sorrow and suffering inflicted to humans by each other. A film based on the stories of people who cross the borders in search of peace, but find humiliation instead.

Warsha (Dir: Dania Bdeir)

Warsha follows Mohammad, a Syrian refugee working as a crane operator in Beirut. One morning he volunteers to take on one of the tallest and notoriously most dangerous cranes in Lebanon. Away from everyone's eyes, he is able to live out his secret passion and find freedom.
