Plunge into the darker sides of humanity. This popular strand showcases some of the finest elements of filmmaking, tapping into narratives that raise the pulse and enliven audiences with a subtle persuasion of the emotions.
Our 2017 selection promises to translate the familiar into a playground for psychological introspection. Be lured into a fabricated sense of security as characters submit to inner dialogues, and react in ways which surprise, mesmerise and intoxicate.
Nour Wazzi’s Baby Mine evokes a sense of dread as a little girl’s life hangs in the balance. When her husband kidnaps her child, Sarah blindly recruits a prejudiced neighbour to hunt them down.
