Homeless (Chile)
Directed by: José Ignacio NAVARRO COX, Jorge CAMPUSANO, Santiago O'RYAN

Underdog (South Korea)
Directed by: Sung-yoon OH, Chun-baek LEE

A dog is a man's best friend. Affectionate and loyal, but once he gets old, or behaves badly, he is thrown out like a dirty hanky. Although when he finds himself alone face to face with nature again, his animal instinct returns, and then his place as a pack animal. United and determined this little pack of stray dogs will slowly but surely relearn how to survive on their own, and discover freedom.

Ville Neuve (Canada)
Directed by: Félix DUFOUR-LAPERRIÈRE

The poetry and powerful images bring together intimate and collective destinies. Joseph moves into a friend's house and tries to reconnect with the woman who left him. A fragile redemption becomes imaginable, in a Quebec, perhaps, at the dawn of its independence.

Directed by: Nicolas BLIES, Stéphane HUEBER-BLIES, Denis LAMBERT

Human Lost (Japan)

Tokyo, 2036. A revolutionary medical discovery has just been exposed. By means of nanomachines, humans are guaranteed a 120-year lifespan free from illness. An idyllic promise... for the handful of those who can access it. Increasing economic disparities, ethical and moral decadence, pollution... The reverse side of the ideal suggests a much darker evolution of humanity.
