"Issa is a football player from Guinea-Bissau who, like many other African young men, looks for an opportunity to play in Portugal and thus reach the top leagues, fulfilling his dream of going pro. In order to tell this fictional story, José Magro, who believes that “reality is always stranger than fiction”, uses a hybrid style, in a register closer to documentary filmmaking, in which, beyond mere narrative, the viewer watches the very making of the film. With this intention, he created the characters of two filmmakers who follow Issa’s trajectory, in their research for a documentary about African footballers playing in Portugal, so often unprotected and victims to unscrupulous managers or clubs that do not comply with their contracts. We don’t see either the ball or the match, only Issa’s loneliness, in a movie that, more than football, is about the dreams that remain unfulfilled."
"Yuddy, a Hong Kong playboy known for breaking girls' hearts, tries to find solace and the truth after discovering the woman who raised him isn't his mother."
"A British-Pakistani man renovates a rundown laundrette with his male lover while dealing with drama within his family, the local Pakistani community, and a persistent mob of skinheads."
"Two young boys experience an unforgettable Italian summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. But all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: they are sea monsters from another world just below the water's surface."
"A teenage hustler and a young man obsessed with alien abductions cross paths, together discovering a horrible, liberating truth."
"Kit can’t remember much of his native Vietnam. When he returns to the Land of the Golden Star for the first time in over thirty years, he takes in his local surroundings as any Western tourist would, and the environment is as exotic as the language is incomprehensible. The aim of Kit’s travels – to find a place to scatter his parents’ ashes – thus becomes part of a journey back to his roots and to the discovery of his identity, which external circumstances have rendered ambiguous and complex."
