Through the novice eyes of a child, Joana positions herself against social norms, as she observs, feels and decides to create her own universe. And so the wind continues to blow - but with greater freedom…

The year is 1981 and the Apartheid reigns in South Africa. Like all White boys over the age of sixteen, Nicholas must complete two years of compulsory military service at the South-Angolan border to defend the Apartheid regime against the communist threat and “die swart gevaar” ("the Black danger"). But that’s not the only danger Nicholas faces. He must also survive the brutality of the army and deny allegations of being a "moffie" (weak, effeminate, illegal - a faggot in fact), which becomes even more difficult when sparks fly between him and a fellow recruit. Oliver Hermanus paints an intense portrait of a young White man as he confronts an extremely violent form of homophobia within an environment led by toxic masculinity. This film does not spare us from the murderous and sinister insanity of the infamous Apartheid regime.

Cristi, a young policeman from Bucharest, lives his homosexuality out of the sight of his colleagues. He has a long-term relationship with Hadi, who lives in another town. The same day Hadi comes to visit him, Cristi is called in for an intervention in a cinema, where a fascist group has sabotaged the screening of a queer film. When one of the cinephiles recognizes Cristi, the tension takes on explosive proportions. Using a camera that is generous in long takes, this debut feature by Eugen Jebeleanu embodies a divided and distressing contemporary Romania.

A deep-dive into the little known life of Tove Jansson (Alma Pöysti), the legendary Finnish cartoon strip artist and creator of the Moomins - little hippopotamus-like characters loved by children and adults alike across the world.

In her consciously targeted biopic, Zaida Bergroth highlights the extravagance of Post-War Swedish Intelligentsia, and captures the unpredictable love life of this bisexual artist, centering the film around Tove's sulphurous affair with femme fatale Vivica Bandler (Krista Kosonen), a married woman of the stage. How can one be free, as an artist who is in love, at a time when society is still unenclined to support diversity and equality?

Vento Seco

Sandro, a bear in his forties, lives surrounded by puzzles and fantasies. Between his after-work appointments with the beautiful Ricardo and his greedy thoughts towards the tarzan of the Maicon pools, dream and reality mix... A kitsch neon fable about the quest of love, located in a little shown Brazil, very far from the beaches of Rio. The fetishes overflow there: leather, cruising, BDSM, close-ups on super tight trunks... But Vento Seco is also embodied in social reality. It tells of intergenerational homosexuality in a working class environment, and has three transgender actors portray the roles of cisgender characters. A tropical Tom of Finland.

In this melodrama on the coast of the Black Sea, Eliko, an old and timid man, who was not widely liked by his neighbours, has committed suicide. His granddaughter Moe, a young woman from the capital, is called in to arrange his funeral. She finds support in Amnon, the beach bar tender who seems to have known Eliko better than one would think, and in Fleshka, the other "quirky" character in the village. Together, they form a complex and touching trio as they face the bigotry of a community rooted in toxic conformism.

This film is Elene Naveriani's second feature, a poetic Georgian ode to resistance to anti-LGBT discourses.
