Glassy Stares (Turkey)

by Rıdvan Karaman

Twin brothers, Tayfun and Taykan, live at a retirement home, although they are in their early forties. Both passionately committed to music and having isolated themselves from life, the twins spend their time writing and composing songs. 'Glassy Stares' is an ecstatic insight into truth amid the fogs of schizophrenia. It is knotting guitar strings in restoring torn ties with the real. A story of brotherhood.

Brother, move on (Switzerland)

by Antshi von Moos

Geeta is one of the few taxi drivers in India. Her taxi service "for women by women" enables women to move freely in the city at any time. Her motivation is: "The more women become taxi drivers, the less women are afraid to step out of the house." Geeta's hope is that the cityscape and atmosphere of the city will increasingly change and so will the position of women in society.
