A moviemaker hands in a script for an arty production in order to receive film funds. Due to political reasons beyond his reach, his film is not provided with a certificate of accreditation. But a true moviemaker never gives up.
Martin is 12 years old and dreams of making the neighbourhood baseball team. When he gets cut, his father steps in and together they spend a summer full of hope and disappointment, line drives and foul balls.
The film documents contemporary North Sea fishery and the fishermen's struggle with a changed public perception, fluctuating regulations, and excessive global competition, while parallels are drawn between fishing and filming.

Centaur lives a modest life with his family in rural Kyrgyzstan until he abruptly becomes the center of attention when he is caught stealing a racehorse at night. A story inspired by the myth when horses became the wings of men.
Documentary about French cartoonist Jano (Jean le Guay), and his visit to Rio de Janeiro in 2000. The city's beauty and uniqueness inspired him to draw a book called "Cadernos de Viagem - Rio de Janeiro" (Travel Notebooks - Rio de Janeiro), in which he captures the many facets of the city and the essence of daily life in Rio.Written by
Rio de Janeiro, the directors and Jano, a "menage" of visions revealing the subtleties of a major not-exactly-third-worldly metropolis, below its touristic glamour, not a huge slum neither a rousseauan heaven. Jano, raised in a blue collar family, penetrates its secrets with his cartoonist eye and go through any prevention. The inhabitants work, date, go to funk shows, punk rock shows and even native music shows, they go to the beach, they pick disposed cans in the beach to sell for recycling, they drink with their friends in open bars (thanks for the climate), they try to get money from tourists in the tourist traps and so on. Great moments: the moment when Janot is addressed by an iranian who was his fan since the Metal Hurlant days when he used to draw Kebra, the punk mouse, they sit to talk in a truck and the truck owner arrives inviting them to go to another city.
