The films of the day
14:30 – Sala Tripcovich | The Open

The bombs have exploded, the war is spread worldwide, but André and Stéphanie won’t give up: the Roland Garros means everything to them, it’s what they are living for. They will organize their tournament, no matter what. Even without rackets, even without balls, with nothing but the indestructible strength of their faith.

17:00 – Teatro Miela | Sum of Histories [Terug Naar Morgen]

What would you do if you could send an e-mail back to the past? Would you run the risk of changing the course of events? A Flemish love story; a sci-fi romance swinging between the past, the present and the future.

17:30 – Sala Tripcovich | Approaching the Unknown

A solo journey to planet Mars: the captain William D. Stanaforth has organized his mission paying attention to the smallest details… but if everything went according to the plans it wouldn’t be fun!

How would our life be if every day, every hour, we lost all our memories and we didn’t know who we were? The world struck by a general amnesia, with no memories of the past, through landscapes in ruins. Humanity doomed to an eternal present.
