376 AD — a refugee crisis in the Roman Empire. The destiny of a Germanic family and its tribe reveals a historical perception on today’s migrational movements. Inspired by actual events. The summer of 376 AD. The Gothic female warrior Elja is forced to give in to the marauding Huns and to seek shelter for herself and her clan in the Roman empire. Once at the border they must wait for orders and provisions from the Roman authorities. Elja tries to understand the Roman plans in spite of the language barrier. Reluctantly Elja must hand over her sword as the Roman general Cossus tells her that, being a woman, she will never be accepted as a warrior in Rome. She feels helplessly at the mercy of her alleged allies and their laws. Why is she being treated like a prisoner of war? Why can’t she travel onwards with her clan? What will happen when the Huns reach their camp? The Gothic faith — and in turn Elja’s entire identity — is put to the test. When Cossus surprisingly calls upon the Gothic clan leaders, tempers reach their boiling point and the situation escalates.

Why kill your own food? A new mindful generation of teens defy factory farming and turn to hunting as a way of connecting with the source of their sustenance. They are part of a new urban movement in the United States: locavore hunters. Nick, Alex and Ashlie leave behind their modern lives and embark on a journey that is foreign to their parents. To make a humane kill, these animal lovers confront tormenting ethics and their worst nightmares, partly to eat dinner, and partly to carve out their own identities in a world increasingly at odds with reality and nature.

This dark comedy focuses on the themes of remembrance, and the marks we leave behind us after death. A reflection on how memory can be manipulated in the perception of those who grieve the death of their beloved ones. Giorgio Priscoli, owner of a funeral home, launches a new service for the families of the departed: to enhance and embellish the memory left by loved ones after their death. Helped by his colleagues, Giorgio turns ordinary lives of ordinary people into fabulous or even adventurous existences. Thus, the manipulation of memory becomes collective joy and approval. Nothing is final, definitive, not even death. At the end of the funeral, during the final act of life, the last eulogy is recited and thus the departed has the chance to reborn in people’s eyes, to live a new existence as a spy, a philanthropist or a hero. Never say never.

Two estranged siblings are reunited at the funeral for their parents, a couple of crazy doctors-without-borders who rarely stuck around to do any parenting. Though supposedly all grown up, Marcus and Michelle are as lost and self-centered as kids. They struggle with their lack of grief over the deaths, and they struggle with each other. Tensions rise while Michelle stays with Marcus and his wife. They wait for days as the family lawyer sorts out the convoluted estate of the globe-trotting doctors, who may not be the angels they were thought to be. Marcus tries to keep a sputtering music career alive as he spirals into a black hole of mysterious health ailments, and Michelle begins a secret affair with Marcus’ father-in-law that will be disastrous if discovered. The siblings can’t help but turn their current lives and relationships into chaos as they’re forced to reckon with their shared past. The movie is about pain, laughter, loss, sex, ego...it’s about the search for real family and the strong pull of roots. Turns out it’s hard to be the children of saints.

Kenny played guitar in a bar and  his family lived in the adjacent motel. From those humble beginnings — a storyteller was born, the director's father Kenny Montgomery. How far will a father go to protect and love his family? Kenny picked Oklahoma cotton from the age of 5 and bought his first guitar from the Sears Roebuck catalogue when he was 7. By the time he was 10, preachers came from all over Oklahoma to take him to tent revivals to play his beloved Silvertone guitar. Over the years, he collected and played Gibsons, Martins and Fenders and when he wasn’t playing them they hung on the wall of his music room. Now in the final days of his long life, he has one last request, "Don’t sell my guitars," with a surprising revelation of what happened to his most beloved guitar of all: that old Sears Roebuck Silvertone.

Whilst we remain safe and sound, watching the highest grossing cat fail compilation - all that is kept out of sight gets back to us in this consumerist nightmare. On a global playground, without bounds, the cat’s body is devoured, exploited and controlled - its fear of pain being stronger than its longing for freedom. Objects are fetishized and subjects made into things that are quantifiable and ready for use. They are the natural resources of a luxury they will never know. We are here because you were there — and waste is dumped in the ocean. In the end, bodies reveal the causes and effects of power, pleasure and hate.
