The Heartthrob / Le Tombeur - A young married woman will live an amazing experience during a business trip.A young married woman and mother of two kids is forced to make a business trip. Behind this room is hiding in fact a big secret . It's during this day that the curtain will fall and the truth will take place

Bodies of Water - "Bodies of Water".is a story of a young man isolated by profound shame and fear of absolute rejection. It's about longing for acceptance and the possibility of love, and, ultimately, seizing the moment to reach out to another human being.Marsh is 24 years old, and he struggles with a tormenting secret. Feeling disconnected human relationships others take for granted, Marsh treads water in the often painful doldrums of everyday life. One evening, a spark ignites Marsh's imagination of what could be and he embarks on a very private quest.

As the filmmaker, I hesitate to call this a "gay film". Yes, Marsh is gay but the young man he ultimately meets and who is poised to change his life, may or may not be. Marsh's struggle with loneliness, isolation, and his desire for a genuine human connection is universal.

Ellar Coltrane plays Marsh. The world watched Ellar grow up before its eyes, literally, in the award-winning film Boyhood. Ellar and I have known each other for eight years. We have forged a strong friendship and a unique bond which we dug into to find the emotional core of the film.

An American Attorney in London - A routine visit to the US embassy in London forces a brash mob lawyer to travel a dark and uneasy path to the last place on earth he wants to be.

New York mob lawyer Robert Logan always wins big - until he loses his passport while on business in London. Attending an interview at the US Embassy, the brash attorney soon discovers that some situations can’t be resolved with bribes, threats or intimidation. Confronted with evidence of his involvement with a New Jersey crime family by a tenacious embassy official, Logan soon realises that it is he himself who stands trial in the claustrophobic and brutalist basement of the London embassy, a tense and bitter confrontation that could prove to be his last.

AINHOA - Ainhoa is 9 years old and she has left home, bringing only her school bag and a Playmobil.

"Ainhoa is a story that, instead of trying to put children to sleep, tries to wake up the adults."

Mail.Man - A veteran mailman, already coping with work cutbacks, is further frustrated that he’s mainly delivering bills and ads, as actual letters today are a rarity.

He grows up to become a mailman, but in the new digital world of texts, tweets, posts and email, he finds himself delivering fewer and fewer actual letters.

His wife’s suggestions that he find a better job fall on deaf ears, but he has to face the reality of Post Office closings and cutbacks.
