TABU (Portugal - 113 min.)
Winner -- 2012 Berlin Film Festival -- FIPRESCI Jury Prize and Alfred Bauer Prize for Artistic Innovation
A temperamental old woman, her Cape Verdean maid and a neighbour devoted to social causes live on the same floor of a Lisbon apartment building. When the old lady dies, the other two learn of an episode from her past: a tale of love and crime set in an Africa straight from the world of adventure films.
Director: Miguel Gomes

EMOND WAS A DONKEY (Canada - 15 min.)
Edmond is not like everybody else. A small, quiet man, Edmond has a wife who loves him and a job that he does extraordinarily well. He is, however, very aware that he is different. When his co-workers tease him by crowning him with a pair of donkey ears, he suddenly discovers his true nature. And though he comes to enjoy his new identity, an ever-widening chasm opens up between himself and others.
Director: Franck Dion
Original version in french with english subtitles
