— FISH STORY
D: Charlie Lyne | 13 min | UK

THE ARIA OF BABYFACE CAULIFLOWER BROWN
D: Tim Grant | 4 min | USA
A professional wrestler, Chace ?Cauliflower? Brown brings a new perspective to the art and craft of wrestling. His musings about this oft-derided sport embrace interesting narratives that unfold between opponents in the ring and not on a page, elevating this sport to art.

BALLOONFEST
D: Nathan Truesdell | 6 min | USA
In 1986, the city of Cleveland released 1.5 million balloons to capture a world record and shed its nickname of the Mistake by the Lake. But their inflated pride is quickly popped.

INVADING GIANTS
D: Kevin Fraser | 12 min | Canada
The beauty and grandeur of the icebergs in Iceberg Alley, between Newfoundland and Labrador, are seen through the wistful eyes of residents and tourists. Bearing a special bond to the ancient and colossal structures, admirers share stories in deep awe of a sight they may never see the same way again.

SEARCHING FOR WIVES
D: Zuki Juno Tobgye | 12 min | Singapore
Patha, like many foreign workers in Singapore, makes the trip to a professional photo studio to have his portrait taken. It?s his golden ticket to securing a bride back home. But time is not on his side as his family races to find him a wife before his 32nd birthday. Though his marriage is arranged, there?s still some thrill to this chase.

CLOSE TIES
D: Zofia Kowalewska | 19 min | Poland
Barbara and Zdzislaw?s marriage has technically lasted 45 years. Despite spending the last eight years apart, they decide to host an anniversary lunch. For all their petty bickering over bills, furniture and their impending anniversary celebration, this couple does have a lasting and unbreakable love.

CONVERSATION WITH ZIAD
D: Juliette Guerin | 7 min | Canada
A Syrian refugee reminisces about his life back home, speaking about the people, place and culture with a bittersweet and palpable sense of nostalgia as he responds to images of Syria projected on a wall. We travel with him to different parts of the country, as he talks about his initial reluctance to leave and challenges popular stereotypes of the country.

116 CAMERAS
D: Davina Pardo | 16 min | USA, Canada
