2158 Stories is an ode to cinema inspired by the discovery of a notebook, in which a manual worker has documented the 2158 cinema trips he made over the course of his life. Behind the orderly notebook is a split family with a shared passion for cinema. We follow four of the notebook owner’s descendants living in contemporary Hungary and discover how the only thing that unites them is their love for action movies. We hear their reflections on cinema, having always been an audience themselves. What is cinema, if something above and beyond an artform? A way to travel, to live out one’s fantasies, to forget the mundanity of everyday life. A way to keep a family together?

SHE are the voices and bodies that narrate about labor in the Bac Ninh industrial park in Vietnam, where Samsung's largest industrial plant is based, with 80,000 workers.
80% of the basic workforce are women who have agreed to work 12-hour shifts, day and night, with very hard rhythms guaranteed by strict discipline and a thorough control of the workers, inside and outside the factory.
The villages surrounding the industrial park display suffocating architecture, useful for the survival of the workers, but insufficient for the development of individuals and families.
SHE is a mother, daughter, wife, single, migrant and settled at the same time.
