Inspired by Dutch painting, Hunters in the Snow, A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE is essentially a series of self-contained vignettes that loosely follows a pair of travelling salesmen Jonathan and Sam as they attempt to win over customers with their novelty party items, albeit unsuccessfully.

The final instalment of Roy Andersson’s “Living” trilogy and made almost 25 years after his last work, A PIGEON is also his most widely known and lauded work in recent times and winning him international acclaim, including the coveted Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival in 2014.

*The film will be preceded by 14-min short film, WORLD OF GLORY (M18) only on 16 February.

*There will be a post-show Q&A with Line Producer, Johan Carlsson only 16 February.

A heartbreaking portrait of divorce, filmmaker Karin Ekberg documents her own parents as they seek to live their own lives after 38 years of marriage. While one is ready to embrace the future and move on, the other clings on to the past and is burdened by the possibility of what could have been.

Ekberg being a daughter and documentarian puts herself in a unique position to have a personal stake in the events unfolding in front of her and inadvertently puts us, the audience, in a position to witness intimately, what is in essence, the breakdown and reconciliation of a family unit.

They lock eyes at a park, flirt at the pinball machines, fight at the playground and snog on bike. And just like that, a love most tender is born between Annika and Pär, two teenagers to whom each other is the world. The grown-ups, caught up with their own messy lives, don’t understand. They never do…

His first feature after graduating from the Swedish Film Institute, A SWEDISH LOVE STORY was a commercial and critical success upon its release both at home and internationally and heralded the entry of a strong new voice in Swedish cinema, winning best film at the Guldbagge Awards (i.e. “Swedish Oscars”) and four awards at the Berlin Film Festival that year. The film has since become a classic of world cinema.

NICE PEOPLE is a documentary that plays out like a real-life "Cool Runnings", as we follow a group of Somalian immigrants in Sweden, as they train to compete in the World Championships as the very first Somali Bandy (a form of ice hockey played with a ball instead of a puck) team. None of them had ever played the sport or even been on skates before.

A timely story that touches on the the complex social issues surrounding emigration and integration globally, the film is a moving tribute to human compassion, tenacity and hope.

NC16Some Nudity

Said to have been informed by director Roy Andersson’s observations of daily life from his office on the second floor, SONGS FROM THE SECOND FLOOR is a distanced view on modernity as told through somewhat disconnected episodes of various characters and situations that are at once surreal and nihilistic.

The first of what would be a cinematic triptych, SONGS FROM THE SECOND FLOOR was director Roy Andersson’s first feature in 25 years after facing critical and commercial failure and focusing his efforts on television commercials where he developed a distinct visual style which provided him with the palette with which he made is later works.

1982. Stockholm. A pair of awkward tweens armed only with their undying love for punk music are determined to resist the oppression of disco, mean boys and gym class by teaming up with a shy Christian girl to form the best punk band ever.

Based on his wife Coco Moodysson’s graphic novel Never Goodnight, Lukas Moodysson’s (SHOW ME LOVE, LILYA-4-EVER) WE ARE THE BEST! is a film that is bursts with youthful exuberance and infectious energy. A joyful ode to a time in all our lives when anything was possible and every moment was eternal.

R21Sexual Scene

The second film in Roy Andersson’s loosely connected trilogy, YOU, THE LIVING is an alienating and strangely comforting exploration of the “grandeur of existence”. Over the course of 50 short sketches, a plethora of unique characters live out tragicomic situations with a humorously unexpressive disposition.

Employing his typically meticulous production design, Andersson took three years to finance the film, resorting to pawning his own possessions and halting several times to take up commercial work. Eventually the project was completed with the aid of several organisations from six different countries and went on to win world acclaim including an award for Best Nordic Film in 2008.

5 BROKEN CAMERAS is a first-hand account of life and non-violent resistance in Bil’in, a West Bank village surrounded by Israeli settlements. Shot by Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera to record the birth of his youngest son, Gibreel, the film was co-directed by Burnat and Guy Davidi, an Israeli filmmaker. The filmmakers’ collaboration follows one family’s evolution over six years of village upheaval. As the years pass, we witness Gibreel grow from a newborn into a young boy who observes the world unfolding around him with the astute powers of perception that only children possess.

Despite a tangle of roadblocks and checkpoints, a thriving street car racing scene has emerged in the West Bank. Held at improvised tracks–a vegetable market, an old helicopter pad, a security academy–the races offer a release from the pressures and uncertainties of life under military occupation. The fanfare and rivalry between cities brings spectators out in droves, lining rooftops and leaning over barricades to snap photos of their favorite drivers and to catch final times on the scoreboard.

In four episodes, Suleiman recounts family stories inspired by his father Fuad's private diaries starting from when he was a resistance fighter in 1948, and his mother’s letters to family members who were forced to leave the country during the same period. In addition, Suleiman also combines his own memories in an attempt to provide a portrait of the daily life of the Palestinians who were labeled "Israeli-Arabs" after the establishment of the State of Israel.

THE WANTED 18 recreates an astonishing true story: the Israeli army's pursuit of 18 cows, whose independent milk production on a Palestinian collective farm was declared "a threat to the national security of the state of Israel." In response to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, a group of people from Beit Sahour decide to buy 18 cows and produce their own milk. Their venture is so successful that the collective farm becomes a landmark, and the cows local celebrities - until the Israeli army takes note and declares that the farm is an illegal security threat.

R21

In 1987, 22 people were arrested by Singapore’s Internal Security Department, and accused of being involved in a Marxist conspiracy.

Featuring interviews with ex-detainees and political exiles, 1987: Untracing the Conspiracy focuses on the first 30 days of their ordeal. In the film, the ex-detainees describe in detail the physical and psychological torture techniques used by their interrogators.

The revelations in the documentary are a damning indictment of the Internal Security Act, and how detention without trial is not just a special kind of law, but a suspension of law.

Winner of the Best Southeast Asian Feature at Freedom Film Festival 2015.

*There will be a post-screening Q&A with ex-detainees and director Jason Soo.
