CITY OF – (3F, 3M) -Four disparate Americans journey to Paris in search of love. A mysterious symphony of speech and dreams unfold as their lives entangle in a web of paintings, opera, and absinthe.

STILL LIFE (4F) – A struggling painter enters an art contest called ‘Images of Death.’ She seeks help from her ex-lover’s teacher. The two women form an unusual relationship that pushes the boundaries of both their art and their humanity.

SONG OF THE WIND – (1F, 2M) On a lonely beach in the North Channel Islands, the boundaries of dream-life and waking-life blur, as two men travel through time to find their future in the past. Song of the Wind is a love song to the vanishing rural lives of two soul mates who believed they had found Tír na nóg, the mythical Land of Youth.
