Monday, 26. 07. 2021 / 21:30 / The Ljubljana Castle

Amidst a worldwide pandemic that causes sudden amnesia, Aris finds himself enrolled in a recovery programme designed to help patients build new identities. Prescribed daily tasks to create new memories and document them on camera, Aris slides back into ordinary life, meeting Anna… Enigmatic, larded with deadpan humour, this multi-awarded directorial debut had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.

Kitty Green

Tuesday, 27. 07. 2021 / 21:30 / The Ljubljana Castle

The Assistant follows one day in the life of Jane who has landed her dream job as an assistant to a powerful film mogul. As Jane follows her daily routine, she grows increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colours every aspect of her work day. This gripping debut is a searing indictment of a system that perpetuates workplace harassment.
