The Oscar-nominated Live Action Shorts Program will include:

• An Irish Goodbye (Ireland): On a farm in rural Northern Ireland, estranged brothers Turlough and Lorcan are forced to reunite following the untimely death of their mother.

• Ivalu (Denmark): Ivalu is gone. Her little sister is desperate to find her. Her father does not care. The vast Greenlandic nature holds secrets. Where is Ivalu?

• Le Pupille (Italy, USA): From writer and director, Alice Rohrwacher, and Academy Award-winning producer, Alfonso Cuarón, “Le Pupille” is a tale of innocence, greed and fantasy. This live action short is about desires, pure and selfish, about freedom and devotion, and about the anarchy that is capable of flowering in the minds of girls within the confines of a strict religious boarding school at Christmas.

• Night Ride (Norway): It is a cold night in December. As Ebba waits for the tram, an unexpected turn of events transforms the ride home into something she was not expecting.

• The Red Suitcase (Luxembourg): An Iranian girl decides to remove her Headscarf/Hijab in a life changing situation.
