Sweet Disaster

SWEET DISASTER tells the story of FRIDA. German-Finnish, painting therapist and 40-y.o. Two events change the usual course of her life. She gets unexpectedly pregnant and FELIX, the father
of her child breaks up with her to re-unite with his ex who is suddenly back. FELIX admits that it is not the best timing, however it does not prevent him from leaving. FRIDA cannot accept FELIX’ decision. Although some serious health problems caused by the late pregnancy force her to rest, she tries to get FELIX back with the help of absurd, exaggerated and sometimes absolutely comic actions.

Laura Lehmus / 90 minutes / English, Finnish, German / Germany

Doing Swell

Twenty-somethings Ethan and Jessica are both on the right side of getting over their exes. Or at least they’d like the world to think so. And when their paths cross one afternoon, they both wonder if they’ve just conveniently stumbled upon a replacement soulmate.
