37º4 S (12', France, 2013)
Director: ADRIANO VALERIO
Winner of a Special Jury Mention at Cannes 2013, 37º4 S speaks about growing-up and the illusions first love entails, as well as about the notion of "home" and uprooting. In a lyrical cinematographic style with documentary elements, the story is set on a remote island in the Atlantic Ocean, inhabited by only 270 people. Two of them, the teenagers Nick and Anne, have been together for as long as they can remember. But Anne has to leave now for boarding school in London, which shakes the boy's entire world. Her decision makes his present time blend with beautiful memories of the past and questions without answer related to an uncertain future.
