Lewis Klahr's collagist elegy on New York nightlife; CLUB OF THE DISCARDED,

Jiri Barta's tale of a family of discarded mannequins who enjoy a quiet

life in an abandoned warehouse until a group of hipster mannequins move in

and spoil the neighborhood; GENTLE SPIRIT, Piotr Dumala's

Dostoyevsky-inspired story of the psychological landscape between a young

lady and an ominous male figure; JOY STREET, Suzan Pitt's story of a woman

who journeys from suicidal despair to personal renewal with the help of an

unlikely spirit guide; and THE STORY OF THE CAT AND THE MOON, Pedro

Serrazina's mini-classic of the fatalistically unrequited love as a cat
