The eye was in the tomb and stared at Daney/L’oeil était dans la tombe et regardait Daney (Chloé Galibert-Laîné)

To varying degrees and in different ways, all 0f

of these films or videos are experimental,

which is also true of the two films found below.

Best debut feature: The Chaotic Life of

Nada Kadić (Marta Hernaiz Pidal, Mexico)
