People say that the island sank four centuries ago, hit by a meteor. Some say it
simply got tired of being an island and became sea. There are those who ensure

DIR: Eileen Hofer . 25 min . Switzerland . 2017
Between melancholia and fights, between laughter and anger, six members of former USSR share a dinner. They are trying to remember the good days of the Soviet Union, a lost universe.

The Dead Fish Story
DIR: Marion Naccache . 6 min . Brazil, France . 2017
“The dead fish story” is a fragment from the film "Years ago, I was working on a movie..." which is both a documentary "sort of"; and a story being told by Tom Jarmusch, driving his car while I'm shooting the lights of New York City at night. It's a journey, a promenade, wandering the streets of the city as well as Tom's stories about NYC in the 90ies, and cinema, and stores that don't exist anymore. It is also a documentary about the birth of a friendship. “The dead fish story” is the first story told during that promenade, Tom remembers working on Robert Frank’s “Last Supper”, and old church and a drug dealer on the block.
