10:00am Waiting for the (t)rain – Documentary – France – PG-13 Director: Simon Panay A small village lost in a dusty desert in Burkina's bush. Two times a week passes the train. Various food items and water bottles thrown by the passengers while passing by constitute the main income of the village, and the only source of water during dry season. Different portraits follow each others. The older ones have known slavery in the service of France, the young dream of distant horizons. 10:25am All the World in a Design School – Documentary – Sweden – PG-13 Director: Mattias Löw Eclectic students and faculty from all over the planet meet at one of the the world's top industrial design school in Scandinavia's faraway north just below the Arctic Circle. This documentary explores everyday life, unique study methods and dynamic design processes at Umeå Institute of Design during the school's 25th anniversary when traditionally welcoming and generous Sweden, with its export-driven economy, imposes steep tuition fees for non-Europeans, the very students that have been instrumental in making the school what it is today. 11:25am The Titanic of Southampton – Documentary – USA – PG-13 Director: Justin Zimmerman The Titanic of Southampton traces the lasting and haunting effects of the Titanic disaster on the town of Southampton a century later. Focusing on interviews with both the son of the last Titanic survivor and a leading local historian, TTOS delves into history and tragedy using never-before-seen documents, breathtaking photography and intimate remembrances. TTOS is a powerful meditation on tragedy, culture, class and loss . . .
