Joanna Hogg: Unrelated
A stay with a circle of posh Brits in a beautiful villa in Tuscany turns out to be just a temporary escape. But amidst bourgeois superficialities and hopeless flirts with young macho men, middle-aged Anna tries hard to convince herself of the opposite. Fleeing the humdrum of married life and her own low spirits under the Italian sun, captured in long takes by Joanna Hogg, Anna must face up to the fact that she cannot escape herself. The blue sky turns grey as the summer once more proves to be one of a woman’s stymied possibilities.

Angela Schanelec: Marseille (approximate start time: 8:45PM)
Still: Marseille, Director: Angela Schanelec
Arriving to a foreign place, we often bring an idea of it with us. We imagine what might happen. As a rule, it is ultimately the place that happens to us, having little to do with what we have imagined. We are at the mercy of the place and our expectations are frustrated. Marseille deals with this disappointment. Photographer Sophie is lost in the eponymous city, home to so many dreams of literature and cinema. But instead of discovering the magical South of France, Sophie witnesses a normality that is unconcerned with her. It is only when she gets back to Berlin that Marseille begins to live in her again.
