Among the attractions, the first highlight is the debut feature, Fuga, by Jonas Poher Rasmussen, elected best documentary at the Sundance Festival. It is a curious specimen (although not a pioneer) of what experts call “animadoc” in the intimacy. Documentary animated films, which, in more traditional times of the format, would be a kind of contradiction in terms. With animation technique, Fuga tells the very real story of the character, on his way from Afghanistan plagued by the Taliban to a troubled exile in Denmark. The film is quite impressive, both for the formal aspect and the tone used in matters of such seriousness.

Quite interesting, too, is Gloria à Rainha, by Tatia Skhirtladze, a production from Austria, Georgia and Serbia. It presents the story of four female chess players who were successful in a predominantly male world. Nona Gaprindashvili, Nana Alexandria, Maia Chiburdanidze and Nana Ioseliani, all Georgians, turned the chess world upside down with their intelligence and talent. This was at a time of the Cold War, when sport was considered a priority in the former Soviet Union as a way of affirming socialist superiority over capitalism. Beautiful film, which appears in a moment of interest in the female chess awakened by the Netflix series O Gambito de Rainha.
