Havana, Cuba. Monolithically, an extraordinary high-rise building stands out from the surrounding old buildings, 14 storeys high. A poetic snapshot of everyday stories and architecture, in the stairwell and in the corridors. The calm pictures and scenes convey a feeling of tension, as if something could happen at any moment. In the midst of the flaky facades of the colonial old buildings, a modernist skyscraper from the 1960s rises into the sky: in front of it is the long promenade along the shore - the Malecón - and the open sea. The cleaning lady talks to herself as usual. The water pipes drip and the plumber skilfully seals them with a plastic bag. Elsa, an old but energetic woman, does exercises with the physiotherapist, she smokes too much. Later she sits together with her friends, they talk about God and the world and about men, about Spaniards and Russians, Italians and French and their peculiarities. The phone doesn't work? It'll work again tomorrow. A neighbor is repairing his heavy American limousine. Everything stands still and everything moves: everyday stories and snapshots of a society in trance. A building becomes a metaphor for the whole island. WMH
The photographer Issa Touma can't leave his apartment in Aleppo - the Assad army fights hard outside the door against the insurgents and finally the IS. Issa directs the camera at herself and through the blinds pulled down from the window. The result is an authentic image that may seem familiar to people from conflict regions: news images, the real sounds of street battles from outside and the "normality" of everyday life - the perversion of war.

For almost ninety years, nothing more was known about the outcome: no reply from Serpa was ever found and Régio never mentioned the subject again. However, the discovery of some old reels in a collector’s hoard seems to provide the ending to the story.

Sometimes a little something brings an unexpected turn into our life so far or turns it upside down. Where there used to be the intact world of the homeland, now a dark past haunts in the bright light. A box with AGFA photos from the Second World War and two 16mm films: Private photos mixed with photos of the Warsaw Uprising, of the ghetto in Silesia Częstochowa ... The filmmaker Michał wants to know where they came from and how they came into the possession of the family. Sometimes they're condensed, sometimes the tracks are blurred. Car license plates, which can be seen on a photo, lead him to the Schröter family, which operated a transport company in Hirschberg, today Jelenia Góra, before the war ... Again and again, Michał loses himself between historical and personal motifs on his journey into the past. This, however, forces him to keep looking for new perspectives and to put his original narrative in a new light. Found footage reflection on the impossibility of telling history from only one perspective, using unique archive material. KM
