FILM TITLE:   Yellow’s Anxiety

Sam hates yellow, her full name and a long list of other things, including herself.
The morning she decides to die, she finds a yellow carillon by her door and decides to give herself 24 hours. Waiting for a bus that will never pass, under an old bus shelter next to two strangers: the extravagant Mr. Manfredi and quiet Timoteo collector of sounds.
Their story is told by Victor, an old writer in love with his fragile wife who wants to turn herself into a yellow fish with blue strips.

Sam odia il giallo, il suo nome per intero e una lunga lista di altre cose, tra cui, se stessa.
La mattina in cui decide di morire trova una carillon giallo davanti alla sua porta e decide di darsi 24h di tempo per scoprire chi lo ha lasciato.
Si ritroverà ad aspettare un bus che sembra non passare mai, sotto una vecchia pensilina con due sconosciuti:
Lo stravagante Manfredi e il silenzioso collezionista di suoni, Timoteo.
La loro storia è raccontata da Victor, un vecchio scrittore con una fragile moglie che vuole trasformarsi in un pesce giallo, con le righe blu.

BEST ITalian DOCUMENTARY (60 MIN OR LESS)

FILM TITLE:   Ladies First

DIRECTOR:  Uraaz Bahl 

SINOSSI

Ladies First tells the inspirational survival story of Deepika Kumari who, as a girl born on the roadside to abject poverty in rural India, went in search of food, stumbled upon archery at age 12, and within 4 years became the number one archer in the world.

We document Deepika’s path to the 2016 Olympics. Having to overcome the obstacles of a repressive system, she strives to achieve her dream of becoming the first Indian woman to win an Olympic Gold Medal. Talent is evenly distributed across the world; but opportunities are not. We hope this story shatters India’s tragedy of small expectations for girls and puts Ladies First.
