Leonie, actrice en spionne by Annette Apon
Leonie Brandt is one of the most mysterious characters in 20th-century Dutch history. German-born, Dutch by marriage: actress, playwright, café owner, double agent. Universally feared, not least for the dirty secrets she kept about the high and mighty. Who was Leonie Brandt really? Is there really a 'really'? A documentary thriller.

Fung Chih-chiang, previously screenwriter for Stephen Chow and Johnnie To, again proves that no city is as perfect for genre cinema as Hong Kong.

Blanco en blanco by Théo Court
Mainly shot in the depths of winter in inhospitable Tierra del Fuego, Théo Court's second film is a hypnotic trip to the historic hell of Western expansionism. Around 1900, photographer Pedro (an amazing Alfredo Castro once again) travels to the southernmost part of South America, to photograph a wealthy landowner’s wedding.
