4 Minute Mile

USA | 2014 | 96 minutes | Charles-Olivier Michaud

Idealistic yet troubled, teen track runner Drew is constantly coming in second--on the tracks as well as at home. When his reclusive old neighbor (Richard Jenkins, The Visitor) offers to train him using tricks from his old coaching days, they form an unexpected bond.

The Amazing Catfish

Mexico | 2013 | 89 minutes | Claudia Sainte-Luce

In the hospital for appendicitis, young supermarket clerk Claudia makes fast friends with Martha, a 46-year-old single mother of four. With little time left on this planet, Martha reaches out to lonely Claudia and invites her to join her family.

Bad Hair

Venezuela | 2013 | 93 minutes | Mariana Rondón

In this finely acted, deceptively small-scaled film, nine-year-old Junior and his frustrated single mother clash over Junior’s desire to straighten his kinky hair. The tower blocks of Caracas, Venezuela are the backdrop for a subtly powerful domestic drama.

The Better Angels

USA | 2014 | 94 minutes | A.J. Edwards

Stunningly shot and set in 1817 Indiana, this Terrence Malick-produced hyperrealistic reflection plumbs the difficult early years of Abraham Lincoln, whose later struggle against slavery made him a legend.

BFE

USA | 2014 | 98 minutes | Shawn Telford

In a small town where everyone has been dealt a bum hand, four people seek an escape from reality. A stunning debut from local filmmaker Shawn Telford, delivering diverse, well-written characters with one distinct commonality: they all need to get out of BFE.

The Boy and the World

This wordless, sensuous, uniquely original animated film follows Cuca, a young Brazilian boy who ventures from his simple countryside home into a neon-infused, carnivalesque metropolis in search of his father.

Boys

Netherlands | 2014 | 78 minutes | Mischa Kamp

Class Enemy

Slovenia | 2013 | 112 minutes | Rok Biček

Club Sandwich

Mexico | 2013 | 82 minutes | Fernando Eimbcke
