THE ROOTS WEAVER by Fernando Saldivia, Chile, 10′

MEET RAMON by Pilar Aldirico, Argentina/Uruguay, 4′
Little Ramon, a fur seal pup, was rescued from an oil spill with just a few days old. He was adopted by Richard, the owner of a marine wildlife rescue center who takes care of him as his dad. His new brothers and sisters are many other animals that also carry plastic and garbage issues. Ramon will grow up and return home someday. Which ocean are we leaving to him?
A LITTLE BIT OF PARADISE by Andrzej Cichocki, Poland, 19′
A documentary story from the borderlands of realism and fairy tale. In an out-of-the-way corner of a metropolis, a Silesian family share moments from their lives, which are inextricably bound up with the nature around them.
EATING AN ELEPHANT by Julia Saponova , Russia, 65′
Masha’s challenge is to become an actress. She has a Down syndrome and she is shy. But a dream can push a person into amazing deeds.
