Snakeskin by Daniel Hui (Singapore) 105 minutes 

Synopsis: In 2066, a survivor of an enigmatic cult recounts his country's traumatic history and the events leading to the rise and fall of the cult. Through his reminiscence, ghosts from 2014 and before appear as witnesses. Part dream documentary, part city symphony, this film traces the lineage of oppression as inscribed in Singapore’s landscape and collective unconscious.

River of Exploding Durians by Edmund Yeoh (Malaysia) 128 minutes 

Synopsis: A coastal town is turned upside down by the construction of a radioactive rare earth plant. An idealistic teacher and a group of high school students find themselves battling for the soul of their hometown. Based on real-life events, River of Exploding Durians is a sweeping tale of Malaysian history and its youth, where people are enveloped by politics and sadness while searching for love.

Chasing Waves Charliebebs Gohetia (Philippines) 92 minutes 

Synopsis: Young Sipat’s family lives in the remote Southern Philippines community Panyan where he has spent his entire life. However, they are forced by their landlord to leave the mountains to migrate to the unfamiliar landscapes of the seaside. Nervous but excited, Sipat is convinced that his greatest dream of experiencing the beach will be fulfilled. As he counts down the days to his departure with his best friend En-En, he is unaware of what the future will hold. The semiunexplored terrain of Barangay Tamugan with its peaks, caves, falls and rivers forms a dramatic backdrop to the natural, unaffected performances by the child actors.

Jalanan by Daniel Ziv (Indonesia) 108 minutes 

Synopsis: Jalanan tells the captivating story of Boni, Ho and Titi - three gifted charismatic bus musicians in Jakarta- and through them a wider, mostly unknown story of contemporary Indonesia.

Under Construction by Rubaiyat Hossain (Bangladesh) 88 minutes 

Synopsis: Struggling to find herself in the sprawl of urban Bangladesh, actress Roya reconstructs a famous and politically minded play for modern times, reclaiming her identity and sexuality in the process.

Mencari Hilal by Ismail Basbeth (Indonesia) 94 minutes 

Synopsis: A journey of father and son. Mahmud, an Islamic conservative, and Heli, a young liberal, are pushed to travel together in search of hilal, the very first new crescent moon, which also defines their new opportunity to have a better relationship.

Elegy by Yousef Kargar (Iran) 

Synopsis: An old man, an expectation, a hope.

The Young Man Who Came From The Chee River by Wichanon Somumjarn (Thailand)

Synopsis: Golf works as a debt collector in Khon Kaen. One day he wakes up early to go to work as usual. He meets many people, including a desperate man in debt who falls critically ill. The situation forces Golf to weigh his professional duty and his moral sense against each other.

Following Diana by Kamila Andini (Indonesia)

Synopsis: When Diana's husband returns home one night with big news — he has taken on a second wife, and expects Diana to live in harmony with the situation — she does what is least expected and plans to make a life on her terms.

November by Shane Lim (Singapore)

Synopsis: Kai has just tested positive for herpes, and breaks the news to his girlfriend, Min, who then goes for a test. With the specter of infidelity looming large over the couple, the teenagers confront fears and uncertainties as they transit into adulthood.

The Cat and The Orange Seeds by Nguyen Le Hoang Viet (Vietnam)
