AMATO (CANADA) BY ROMY
Synopsis: Amato is about the diversity of polyamorous models in the Quebec portrait. Three unique and interrelated stories are staged through performing arts. Running time: 00:08:07.
LIMITS (SWITZERLAND) BY SIMON DE DIESBACH
Synopsis: In a forest he digitized, Simon runs. Within an autobiographical narrative where the images were entirely captured in the forest of Chaney in Switzerland, running embodies the intimate link between the protagonist and the forest, a forest that has witnessed a multitude of personal events and that is now being destroyed by a gravel pit. Immersed in a fragmented world, Simon questions the reasons that pushed him to 3D scan his forest. He questions his relationship with the living world, with the limits of matter, and with the limits of digital representations of nature. Running time: 00:07:40.

PETITES (BELGIUM) BY PAULINE BEUGNIES
Synopsis: The collective story of the Dutroux Affair, told by the generation of children of the 90s. Their memories are distorted by the media prism and their own childlike eyes. Together, they deliver an intimate version of history. A piece of collective memory. Running time: 01:23:00.
Selections/awards: Hot Docs Toronto.
