    The Recorder Exam

    A rapturous and touching 27-minute short film from Kim Bora that is a somber look at a young girl trying to practice the recorder for an upcoming exam in 1988 Seoul during the Summer Olympics as she deals with neglect and indifference in her family as there are moments that are devastating to watch as it play into a young girl just trying to get attention and love as it's a great short from Bora.

    The Garden of the Finzi-Continis

    A rich and ravishing film from Vittorio De Sica in his adaptation of Giorgio Bassani's novel about the lives of two upper-class Jewish families as they live during the era of Fascist Italy where a young man pines for a young woman whose family live inside a lavish home with an idyllic garden that is an escape from reality as it features great performances from Lino Capolicchio, Dominique Sanda, Romolo Valli, Helmut Berger, and Fabio Testi.
