Ghent Short Film Nominee:
Director: Miguel Fonseca | Producers: Luís Urbano, Sandro Aguilar
Star: Alice Contreiras, Andreia Contreiras

Year: 2012 | Length: 22 min | Live Action
 
Beautiful, truly Portuguese seascapes swept before my eyes. Tied up in these images was my youth, my paradise lost. The vast sea, the beach, the people, all waiting, all dying gently, sadly, beautifully. Life and death were being recorded here as a whole: death as a part of life, a cosmic change, a trans- formation.

ZIMA (Russia)

Locarno Short Film Nominee:
Director: Cristina Picchi | Producers: Guillaume Protsenko, Tanya Petrik

Year: 2013 | Length: 12 min | Documentary
 
A portrait of a season – a journey through North Russia and Siberia, through the feelings and thoughts of the people who have to cope with one of the world’s harshest climates; a reality where the bound- ary between life and death is so thin that it is sometimes almost non-existent, where civilization constantly both fights and embraces nature and its millenarian rules and rites. A reflection on life, on adaptation and on the immutable cycles of existence.

Sergiy and Sveta live in Chernobyl. He is a truck-driver at a radioactive waste plant. She works at a radioactive decontamination station. Their work and life are dictated by one unchangeable rhythm with clockwork precision. But what sets this mechanism in motion - day by day?
