I Do Air by Martina Amati (2009) (UK) (7m) *

I Do Air is a dialogue-free film telling the story of a young girl feeling insecure at a swimming pool - manifest in her inability to dive off the top diving board. When the rest of the children have gone, she returns to the pool to find two adult male free-divers doing underwater lengths. Believing that this could be her calling, she decides to join them. How will they react? And should her parents or school be investigated for a total lack of supervision?


September by Esther Campbell (2008) (UK) (21m)

September tells the story of Marvin (Nicholas Aaron), stuck working as a kitchen porter at a motorway services, who comes across a strange girl practising a superhuman power in the nearby shrubland. A bridge crossing the motorway acts as the central metaphor, with the safety of the services one side, and the unknown world found on the other. Will Marvin be spurred into leaving his life behind by his brief encounter with the girl?
