Pain and Glory (STA)
Pain and Glory tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films. Pain and Glory talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one's own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.

The World according to Amazon (STA)
In 1994, in a Seattle garage, Jeff Bezos created a bookstore. 25 years later, his company owns over 250 warehouses, ships 14 million parcels a day and dominates the market in five continents. The World According to Amazon pulls back the curtain on Bezos’ monolith and how it’s discretely taken over our lives. If the world’s first centi-billionaire has his way, his company will become the only one we’ll ever need.

That is if it doesn’t destroy us first. Staff in Amazon’s 250 warehouses are required to behave like robots, According to a Polish employee, “you work as a machine but you are also controlled by machines. This is something scary.” Scarier still is the state of emergency the Seattle government called on homelessness since Amazon took over one fifth of the downtown area. Filling up their shiny high rises are tens of thousands of executives, all who need homes, causing rents to skyrocket and a 600% increase in residents living on the streets.

But for Bezos, dominating a city or the world is not enough, and so he’s turned his attention to the skies, or, more specifically, the cloud. Amazon is the leader in online data storage infrastructure. 70% of the world's Internet travels through just one of Amazon’s 120 data centres in Northern Virginia.

The World According to Amazon explores how a single company controls the distribution of all our daily products, the infrastructure of our economy, and the data that defines us. Out of the mouths of Amazon workers in Germany, small business owners in India and even an executive who worked in Bezos’ garage, we learn the truth behind this global empire, and the disturbing future Amazon has in store for us.

With his signature virtuosity, Terrence Malick delivers a meditative, profoundly humanist film on the shattering journey of an Austrian farmer caught between his deepest convictions and the desire to protect his family. Inspired by the true story of Franz Jägerstätter, who risked capital punishment when he refused to pledge allegiance to Hitler during World War II, Malick’s singular reflection on life and faith is refracted through the prism of his most poignant love story to date: the blazing passion of two people united in their unwavering opposition to Nazism.
