Sink or Swim
Gilles Lellouche - Belgium, France (2018) - 122 mins

Gilles Lellouche's warm and amusing film poses this question: Can a loose collection of mismatched oddballs come together to find success as a male synchronized-swimming team? The absurdity of the premise is matched by the sincere commitment of a group of barely athletic men bonding over this seemingly impossible task. In Sinhalese and French with English subtitles


Ten Meter Tower
Maximilien Van Aertryck, Axel Danielson - Sweden (2016) - 16 mins

People up on a ten-meter diving tower for their first time ponder the prospect of how to get down. This film is an entertaining study of human vulnerability. Nominee, 2018 Academy Awards. Official Selection, Sundance Film Festival 2017. In Swedish with English subtitles
