Papicha (STA)
14 years old and up

Algeria, the 1990s civil war, violent fundamentalists limit women’s freedom. Nedjma (charismatic Lyna Khoudri), in year 3 of French studies in college, is obsessed with fashion designing. Everyday life soon becomes more restrictive and even life-threatening, yet Nedjma and her best friend still find ways to sneak-out of their locked dormitory at night and sell handmade dresses in discotheque washrooms. Many of Nedjma’s contemporaries have emigrated, but Nedjma refuses to leave her beloved Algeria. Why not assert female pride and independence by organizing a fashion show, outfoxing the radicals?

Inspired by real events, first-time director-co-screenwriter Mounia Meddour spins a harrowing tale bursting with energy.

Corpus Christi (STA)
Showing with French or English subtitles.

After spending years in a Warsaw prison for a violent crime, 20-year-old Daniel is released and sent to a remote village to work as a manual laborer. The job is designed to keep the ex-con busy, but Daniel has a higher calling. Over the course of his incarceration he has found Christ, and aspires to join the clergy - but his criminal record means no seminary will accept him. When Daniel arrives in town, one quick lie allows him to be mistaken for the town’s new priest, and he sets about leading his newfound flock. Though he has no training, his passion and charisma inspire the community. At the same time, his unconventional sermons and unpriestly behavior raise suspicions among some of the townsfolk - even more so as he edges towards a dark secret that the community hasn't revealed in the confessional booth.
