SONGS MY BROTHERS TAUGHT ME
USA 2015, 94 Min, OV, D: Chloé Zhao
Johnny and Jashaun are young native Americans, brother and sister. They live in a reservation in South Dakota. Johnny wants to leave this place at all costs and Jashaun, his little sister is afraid of losing him. It's a simple, everyday story of growing up, told so wonderfully, heartbreaking and tender. An exceptional piece of cinema.

FRANCOFONIA
F/D/NL 2015, 87 Min, OV w/ Eng. subs, D: Aleksander Sokurov
The absurd story of rescue of the Louvre by the Germans from the Germans. For Sokurov it is a basic picture of the impending destruction of culture, a farewell to the Western heritage and a highly artificial, entertaining and exciting essay the relationship between art and history.
