 by Francisco Marise. Teetering on the boundary between fiction and documentary, this film, which was first revealed at San Sebastián (in the New Directors section) and is a co-production between Spain, Argentina, Portugal and Panama, was co-written and co-produced by Javier Rebollo. Seven feature-length fiction films will be going head to head with it for the 2018 Janine Bazin Grand Prize, including two US titles (Classical Period by Ted Fendt and The World Is Full of Secrets by Graham Swon), two Japanese pictures (Forgotten Planets by Takayuki Fukata and The Kamagasaki Cauldron War by Leo Sato), one South Korean movie (Winter's Night by Jang Woo-jin), one Iranian flick (Reza by Alireza Motamedi) and one Brazilian effort (Long Way Home by André Novais Oliveira). This impressive crop of works explore the fringes of the modern world: demoted Japanese people, the outskirts of Paris and its slums, the forgotten soldiers of ideological wars (elderly Cubans and young Ukrainians), the farmers of the old world, youth and its lost illusions, the ghosts of history and fiction, and bashful, weary and betrayed lovers…
