Lumen (Canada)

by Sarah Seené

Lumen (meaning light in Latin) is a sensorial film shot in Super 8 that paints a portrait of an adolescent with albinism. The hypersensitivity that this genetic condition engenders and the lack of pigmentation in her skin and eyes lend her an extraordinary aura. This film echoes a series of photographs entitled Fovea, which takes as its subject visually impaired young people. Running time: 00:01:41

Mood Atlas (Ireland)

by Mia Mullarkey

'Mood Atlas' explores Bipolar Disorder through one man’s experiences, and his search for hope in neuroscience. Psychological tests administered to Shane within the context of a brain mapping study act as a device, for the film viewer, to enter Shane’s psyche and his history. Within his own life they act as a means of giving him hope; people are working to better understand his condition and he can offer something to others who struggle as he does. Running time: 00:18:30

Being Sascha (Switzerland)

by Manuel Gübeli

Sascha's name wasn't always Sascha. But now it is. Sascha doesn't identify as a man or as a woman, but as trans non-binary. A story about what it means to live in a society that wasn't expecting you. A glimpse into a life that allows us to question our own categories. And a film about what it means to be oneself. Running time: 00:35:22
