France, Germany, Ukraine, Lithuania, 2016, 90′
Director: Mantas Kvedaravičius
A man repairs his fishing net and goes out to the bridge. Two trams run into each other – nobody is hurt and cables are fixed the same day. A small concert is given for factory workers and the sincere performance of a violinist makes them cry. Bombs fall into the sea, no one notices.

Director: Hlynur Pálmason
Hylnur Pálmason shot this film right outside his house over a period of 18 months with the support and assistance of his three kids. This short unscripted film plays with the idea of time. Nest is a tale about a utopia, but also an attempt to craft a narrative in a different way, using the weather combined with the natural energy that kids have as a trigger for a story.
