THAT WHICH IS TO COME IS JUST A PROMISE Flatform In the course of a long, slow take over Funafuti, both drought and floods appear in a constant uninterrupted rhythm. The state of flux between both type of events is reflected in the places and actions of the inhabitants making the island's extremes seem familiar: the air is riven with waiting and suspension. The island of Funafuti, in the archipelago of Tuvalu, for some years now has become the stage for a unique phenomenon. Due to the unnatural warming of the sea, salt water seeps into the subsoil bubbling up through the porous terrain provoking floods which put the future of life on this island at risk.

BUÑUEL IN THE LABYRINTH OF THE TURTLES Salvador Simó In a stranger-than-fiction tale befitting the master surrealist director, this film tells the true story of how Buñuel made his sophomore movie. Paris, 1930. Luis Buñuel is left penniless after a scandal surrounding his first film L’AGE D’OR. His friend, sculptor Ramón Acín, buys a lottery ticket with the promise to pay for his next film if he wins. Incredibly, the ticket is a winner and they set out to make the movie. Both a buddy adventure and fascinating episode of cinematic history, the film utilizes sensitive performances and excerpts of Buñuel’s own production footage, to present a moving portrait of an artist chasing his purpose.
