Las Acacias. Argentina/Spain, 85 min.
A truck driver hauling logs from Paraguay to Buenos Aires gives a lift to a young woman and her four-month-old baby. Nothing happens, but by the end of the journey something has happened.
Empire North. Denmark, 58 min.
A Danish cartoonist (oops) designs a fake rifle that supposedly tags political dissidents with nano tracking devices. When he takes his phony weapon to an arms show, he gets serious offers from big powers. The Chinese are enthusiastic enough to offer to take over production. Unfortunately this good idea is buried in a mish-mash of irrelevant amateurish video.
Jean-Luc Persecuted. France, 45 min.
Set in the Pyrenees in the early Twentieth Century, the film tells, without dialogue, the story of Jean-Luc, a hulk of a man obsessed with the beautiful, fragile baby he has fathered. If only he bestowed the same affection on his neglected wife. The film is spoiled by a loud annoying score.
