New Europe Competition

The Kindergarten Teacher

Unusual characters and their feelings of loneliness, displacement, exclusion, social handicaps and exclusivity appearing from Iceland to Africa – this is the list of the central motives of this year's New Europe competition. The main protagonist of Patrick's Day suffers from schizophrenia, yet his condition unexpectedly improves when he falls in love. Love also plays a pivotal role in the British X+Y, as autistic Nathan takes part in the Olympiad in China, where he meets beautiful Mei. Aerobics: A Love Story brings together two mentally handicapped people who want to be on television with their own show dedicated to aerobics. Displacement is a key feeling for the protagonists of the Finnish They Have Escaped, who decide to run from a youth detention centre. 

African refugees are the focus of Hope, while The Kindergarten Teacher sees a miraculous child create mature poems at the age of five. A lighter note is provided by Pause, a romantic comedy about an introverted musician, or a poetic fairy-tale for adults, Liza, the Fox-Fairy. The Czech representative in this year's competition is the debut Schmitke about an ageing German engineer who is sent to the Czech borderland to repair a wind power plant turbine, and we can also find a bit of Czech influence in Life in a Fishbowl, an Icelandic-Czech co-production drama.
