SISYPHUS DREAMING (HONG KONG) BY JAS PUN
If Sisyphus were conscious in his dreams, is he still dreaming? A young man one day dreamt that he is 'pressed by a ghost'. He then experienced various strange things: a new colleague with a weird pose; a guy with sunglasses at the toilet; a printer that spits letters; and even meeting the bald man who appears in his dream. The young man gets on a red minibus after work, he then finally realizes the meaning of all these strange incidents. Running time: 00:15:35.
POISE (PORTUGAL) BY LUÍS SOARES
A sad and restrained man lying on the bed in his empty room. Hesitates, ponders hypotheses in a cycle without deciding, stuck. In exhaustion all anguish is equal. Another man is sitting at the window: he looks at him and at the street. Characters in broken situations. The key positions, the suspended sequences, are shown. The man almost decides - and they almost return, inside and out, to them and to the city, time and movement. Infinite dawn. Running time: 00:07:00.

Running time: 01:32:25.
