Bird

YUN Hyeong-gu, an ornithologist more than 80 years old, had a son who went missing about 40 years ago. One day, he spots a Siberian common starling flying from Japan to North Korea. Puzzled by the fact that this bird species does not inhabit in Japan, he decides to further investigate it and eventually discovers that it was sent by his son living in South Korea. After confirming his son is still alive, he begins a research project on migratory birds in collaboration with his son by bypassing Japan. Along the way, they find an opportunity to reunite with each other decades after separation.

Summer Breeze

Hand in Hand

Black and white images of war alternate with colour sequences of the Torch-bearers: the recent and tragic past, and the redemption with the Games (the second edition held in Asia) from war to peace, with slow-motion takes of hundreds of doves flying over the stadium while the world stares at them. Several delegations participated in traditional dances, melting with the Korean ones. The film has no dead times with an engaging stream of events. The rhythm of the images can be defined ‘frenzied’.

Little Germans

As a child Elsa played soldier with her beloved grandpa. Full of pride she used to shout ‘For leader, nation and fatherland!’ with her arm outstretched for the Nazi salute. Today, she looks back on a childhood based on hate and lies, trying to understand what her upbringing in a radical right-wing environment has made of her and her own children Little Germans is based on this authentic story presented in a unique hybrid of animation and feature documentary.

PIPFF Choice

Pink Femi

Since my mother was working in the women's rights group, the field of feminist movement was my playground. I grew up as a little feminist who cut her hair short and refused to wear skirts. However, as I got older I experienced things that made me run away from feminism. Eventually, I decided to be a princess rather than a feminist, and started to stick to pink as a survival strategy. Could a person like me can be a feminist again?

POV: Refugee on Earth

Hevi

Hévi and Walat, a young Kurdish refugee couple have arranged to meet a human smuggler to cross an undefined border to a place of freedom.
