    Two Lives (Zwei Leben)

    Raised in East Germany, Katrine has been living in Norway for the last twenty years, enjoying a happy family life with her mother, her husband, daughter and granddaughter. The daughter of a Norwegian woman and a German occupation soldier during World War II, she finds her idyllic life disrupted when a lawyer asks her and her mother to testify in a trial against the Norwegian state on behalf of the war children. Gradually, a web of concealments and secrets is unveiled until Katrine is finally stripped of everything.

    The Mill and the Cross

    The film focuses on a dozen of the 500 characters depicted in Bruegel's painting. The theme of Christ's suffering is set against religious persecution in Flanders in 1564. Directed by Lech Majewski, "The Mill and the Cross" is inspired by Pieter Bruegel the Elder's 1564 painting "The Procession to Calvary". The film focuses on a dozen of the 500 characters depicted in Bruegel's painting. It consists of a series of vignettes depicting everyday peasant life in Flanders, interspersed with monologues from some of the principal characters, including Bruegel explaining the structure and symbolism of his painting.
