LISBON PREMIER

Jim, an isolated ex-miner who works as a night-shift security guard faces his last day at work before retirement. He spends the night patrolling the slag heap of a former coal mine - a remnant of Scotland's industrial past. The film explores the intrinsic relation of an individual to work and asks what's left when, at the end of a lifetime of labour, a man loses his purpose.

PORTUGAL PREMIER

California on Fire utilizes time, sound, and the catastrophic effects of climate change as a backdrop to examine loss. Each of the film's five chapters are based on the stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, sadness, and acceptance. To create California on Fire, artist Jeff Frost trained as a firefighter, gained full access to more than 70 wildfires, and shot over 350,000 photos from 2014 to 2019. It has been featured in PBS Newshour, TIME Magazine, National Geographic, and Artnet.
