THOSE WHO GO THOSE WHO STAY
by Ruth Beckermann (Ruth Beckermann Filmproduktion (A))
Rain on a window pane, a fire truck, a tomcat with innumerable offspring: it is an intentionally unintentional gaze that
allows for chance encounters, for stories and memories leads that Ruth Beckermann follows across Europe and the Mediterranean.
THOSE WHO GO THOSE WHO STAY is a story of being on the move, in the world and ones own life.

Documentary Films Competition
STEADINESS by Lisa Weber
A man and a woman travel to North Cape. By car. They are filmed by their granddaughter. The closer they get to reaching their
destination, the less important it becomes. No longer a film about the difficulties of a long drive but one about the difficulties
of a long life together.
