THE MOUSE | Liat Akta| 12:00 | Israel | 2018
This is the story of a hard-working family in an Israeli suburb in the seventies. Each parent uses their kids to their advantage while giving them responsibilities they cannot hold. The kids try to imitate their parent’s behavior in order to survive. We follow the family’s reality from the kids’ point of view, the lays and manipulation of the adults, the messages thy deliver to their children, those that will make them how they are.

Lilah and Dan, two film students, go for drinks after their second dinner date.

Lilah offers, as a rebuke, her inspired reenactment of the climactic scene from a classic French movie about a silenced young woman.
PLAY THE FIELD | Lesley Marshall | 3:08 | Canada | 2017
“We decided to get the band in front of the camera really quick so I threw every piece of sports equipment I had in a car and drove through the night to get to Windsor. Was really stoked to work with Partner who are some great women doing fun things in music and wrestle around in sports and comedy. Women really do not get nearly enough screen time in sports and it’s a total sexist shame – here’s to the future of increased representation for all folks left off screen.”
