From the creative minds behind Ernest & Celestine, Song Of The Sea and The Secret Of Kells, this stunningly beautiful animation is set in late 19th century Saint Petersburg. Sacha, a young girl from the Russian aristocracy, dreams of the Great North and anguishes over the fate of her grandfather, Oloukine, a renowned scientist and Arctic explorer who has yet to return from his latest expedition to conquer the North Pole. Sacha has always been fascinated by the adventurous life of her grandfather and has the same calling as Oloukine to be an explorer. But Sacha’s parents, who already made arrangements for her marriage, strongly disapprove of the idea to say the least. Defying her destiny, Sacha flees her home and launches an adventure-filled quest toward the Great North in search of Oloukine and his ship.

Neurotic and manic, bold and magnetic, Paula is a muddle of contradictions. Fresh from an unceremonious dumping by her boyfriend of 10 years, she finds herself wandering the streets of Paris- jobless, homeless and single – with no idea of what life holds for her next. At 31 years old, with little to show for it but a kidnapped cat and a sense of adventure, she sets out to reinvent herself new job, new friends, new life and finds that these things never do come easily.

Lucky follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment. This movie is at once a love letter to the life and career the actor Harry Dean Stanton who plays Lucky as well as a meditation on morality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.

After years abroad in Italy, Shadi returns to his native Nazareth. But this is no spectacular homecoming. He’s back somewhat begrudgingly to honour his “wajib” (or duty) to hand out invitations to his sister’s wedding with his father, Abu Shadi. The simmering tension between the two – who are often stuck in a car, more often than not in traffic – builds, exposing the sometimes comic chasms that exist between men who live in different worlds but share an unshakable bond. With its humour rooted in observational moments and in the actors’ uncanny ability to convey all-too-relatable familial exasperation – Wajib is a touching tale that examines the easily blurred line between love and duty.
