Director: Nataliya Stoltidis
Country: Russian Federation
Synopsis: «Ancentor’s day” is a story about the complex relationship of mother and daughter.
On Saturday morning, her mother comes to Nadya to take her with her to the cemetery. Nadia has her own plans, but her mother authoritatively pulls her out of the usual schedule. They need to visit the grave of Nadya’s father, whom his mother divorced long before his death. On the way, the mother swears and in every possible way manifests her irreconcilable nature. Nadia suffers, but on the way back, women quarrel violently. Mother slams the door in the middle of the road and leaves, and Nadia pierces the wheel and has to stop.
After a while the mother runs and with shouts comes back. Behind her runs a tiger, escaped from the car-transportation. Women hide from him in a naked car.
While they are waiting for help, memories make them open their hearts to each other. They say good words to each other, they have not been found for each other for a long time.

Director: NADEEM SHAH
Synopsis: ‘The Perfect Girl’ is a story about a little girl who lives with her single parent; her father, in a small part of Mumbai – also known as the ‘City of Dreams’.
The two of them had made their own small world where they had everything that they needed. Suffering from hearing and speaking disabilities, this little girl was drawn towards dance like any other regular child but what made the little girl more special was her imagination and the effort to overcome the layer of her disability and learn to dance with the help of an extremely helpful and observant dancer who makes her believe that all she needs is a belief!
‘The Perfect Girl’ directed by Nadeem Shah elaborates a beautiful bond between a father and daughter and inspires us to think that a disability can never stop you from acquiring your imagination.
