Documentary lovers would be happy to see the Brazilian production BARONESA by Juliana Antunes at 6 pm in the crypt, which was made under difficult circumstances and portray two women who befriend each other in the favelas around Belo Horizon. Scripted, authentic, surprising, challenging! We are looking forward to the conversation with Juliana Antunes.
At 10 pm, the supposed friends Richard, Sasha and Jonah head for showdown on the high seas in the Canadian HARPOON. With engine damage and no food aboard a yacht, feelings of jealousy boil up between the three of them. A bitter and bloody reckoning with love and friendship, in the presence of the producer Mike Peterson.
