Spain | Nacho Rodriguez| 4:20 

A little cat who lives on a dying planet has to leave. On this voyage he will face dangers and adventures but ultimately he will return home. A Lifestory is a metaphor about life as a circle that begins when we are just children at home. Based freely on the second century poem ‘The Hymn of the Pearl.’


Argentina | Carlos Lascano | 9:00

UK | Pater Baynton | 3:19
