Rated R for violence, language, and adult themes. Included in this year's 108 minute Live Action program: 

Madre – Rodrigo Sorogoyen and Maria del Puy Alvarado, Spain, 19 minutes
A single mother receives a call from her seven-year-old son who is on vacation with his father in the French Basque Country. At first the call is a cause for joy, but soon it becomes a horrible nightmare when the child tells her that he is alone and cannot find his father who left a while ago.

Fauve – Jeremy Comte and Maria Gracia Turgeon, Canada, 17 minutes
Set in a surface mine, two boys sink into a seemingly innocent power game with Mother Nature as the sole observer. Alone in the wild the two boys play around. Complicity evolves into a confrontation where one wants to have power over the other. Taking proportions larger than nature, this game will not prove as harmless as they thought. 

Marguerite – Marianne Farley and Marie-Helene Panisset, Canada, 19 minutes
An aging woman and her nurse develop a friendship that inspires her to unearth unacknowledged longing and thus help her make peace with her past.

Detainment – Vincent Lambe and Darren Mahon, Ireland, 30 minutes
Two ten year-old boys are detained by police under suspicion of abducting and murdering a toddler. A true story based on interview transcripts from the James Bulger case which shocked the world in 1993 and continues to incite public outrage across the UK today.

Skin – Guy Nattiv and Jaime Ray Newman, USA, 20 minutes
A small supermarket in a blue collar town, a black man smiles at a 10 year old white boy across the checkout aisle. This innocuous moment sends two gangs into a ruthless war that ends with a shocking backlash.
