Heres our days selection to the unmissable events. Everything else can be found in the calendar here.

ART- Iranian folklore & melancholic madness

Gray House 

A dark and evocative work between documentary and abstraction, which is more than just spiritually akin to Lynch senior. Raw and real scenes from life in the American working class play out in five settings, in its own, original territory of cinematic abstraction between dream and reality.Q&A with director afterwards.

Time: 20:00, Venue: Empire Bio Tickets.

NB! For this event we have a daily giveaway – check it out here.

Burma Storybook

A sensually saturated and in every sense poetic film from a country, whose many poets can finally express themselves freely after decades in the iron grip of dictatorship. Czech director Petr Lom’s sensuous film beautifully and touchingly shows how important poetry is for the country’s people, and it is dedicated to the poet Maung Aung Pwint, Burma’s most famous dissident poet who has served 30 years in prison for rebellion. Q&A with director and free beer afterwards.

Time: 21:30, Venue: Cinemateket Tickets.

Janbal

Fables, folklore and Persian mythology meet in the adventurous Iranian docu-fiction ‘Janbal’, which takes place on the island of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf  and in the artist Mousa’s wild, inner fantasy world. A world where everything is possible, and where the boundaries between reality and dream are blurred. Q&A with the director afterwards

Time: 21:45, Venue: Cinemateket Tickets.

Tarrafal

Portuguese ‘gentrification blues’ from Porto’s troubled outskirts, where the residents are defending the outsider status that decades of heroin and gang dominance has bestowed upon them. Pedro Neves continues and renews the Portuguese tradition of investigating the origins of melancholy in madness, and has created his very own variation of hard and dark social realism with an almost supernatural edge of something threatening and inexplicable. Q&A with the director afterwards.

Time: 19:00, Venue: Nordisk Film Dagmar Tickets.

POLITICS – Kenyan farmers & radicalism

Boiling Point

Soldiers of Odin and the True Finns are making gains in the far north. Finland is hit by the refugee crisis, but in the saunas there is hope to be found in conversation. ‘Boiling Point’ takes to the ultimate harmonious public place, the sauna, where the director Elina Hirvonen finds the space for two Finnish men - fat and thin! - to discuss the situation in all of its nuance. Q&A with the director afterwards.

Time: 19:00, Venue: Nordisk Film Palads Tickets

Accidental Anarchist

From diplomat to anarchist and from disillusioned to activist. Take a trip around the world in search of direct democracy, with the British Carne Ross, diplomat with a CV including everything from political attaché for the British Foreign Office in the 1990s to declared anarchist with a mission to promote democracy in its most direct form. Q&A with the director afterwards.

Time: 21:30, Venue: Grand Teatret Tickets

The New Radical

Hacktivists and crypto-anarchists are the internet’s new black. But is their project a digital freedom fight or a totally unpredictable threat? ‘The New Radical’ takes us right into the heart of their project, and explores a new form of radicalisation, which has unforeseeable consequences. Q&A with the director afterwards.

Time: 19:00, Venue: Grand Teatret Tickets.

NB! For this event we have a daily giveaway – check it out here.

Thank You for the Rain

From Kenyan farmer to self-taught documentary filmmaker, and on to indomitable climate activist in the high circles of COP21. ‘Thank You for the Rain’ is an inspiring and captivating tale of an indefatigable optimist, who nonetheless tests his limits in the fight for a greener world. Q&A with the director afterwards.

Time: 20:00, Venue: Empire Bio Tickets.

MUSIC – Shamanic performance & Canadian R’n’b

Hibridios – Live Cinema World Premiere

High-tech, psychoactive ritual in cinematic form – an interactive experience from another world with Vincent Moon & Priscilla Telmon. Be a part of a high-tech audiovisual ceremony, which brings us from trance ceremonies in Rio’s suburbs via shamanic practices in the Amazon jungle to the Afro-Brazilian cult movements of Bahia.

Time: 20:00, Venue: Literaturhaus Tickets

Jacques Greene

In collaboration with VEGA, we have managed to fly Jacques Greene over from Canada to perform a dangerously danceable concert with an audiovisual installation that will enshroud the audience in light and sound. We can guarantee you wonderfully disorienting R’n’B-inspired break beats, with a touch of pop sensitivity.
