Green Book tells a story of a poorly educated Italian named Tony who loses his job in 1962. A bouncer in the past, the only thing Tony is good at is fighting. Reluctantly, he takes on a job of a driver for a refined African-American pianist Don Shirley. As they set off for a tour across America, they realise how different they are, which makes it hard to get along. Despite their different ideals, the horrible injustices and segregation Tony and Don face during their trip, make them friends.

Chelyabinsk State Youth Theatre
This story happened in a child’s room while there was no one there, and when one dream became a reality. And then a fairytale began. This fairytale is about all of us; it is about how we love and what we believe in, and how we wait for a miracle to happen. The main hero is just like you - he is different. He has a gentle soul and a kind heart. And... he is filled with buckwheat.

Golden Mask: Ekman / Goecke / Naharin
This film incorporates the works of such great contemporary choreographers as Alexander Ekman (Sweden), Marco Goecke (Germany), and Ohad Naharin (Israel). Golden Mask: Ekman / Goecke / Naharin shows the world of modern European dance at its best. The freedom of plasticity, masterful techniques, sadness and irony, search for the new ways of self-expression, and the beauty of classical music (Vivaldi, Shostakovich) - all create a unique effect of co-participation and magic.
