1. Still from 'Helping Hand'.HELPING HAND
Jang Eun Youn (South Korea)

This is a difficult film to both watch and perhaps understand. Some viewers have objected to the visualisation of sexual abuse of a boy with learning difficulties. However, good drama has always explored the less attractive sides of life and this is a powerful example from another culture. The acting of the boy deservedly won the best acting award.

Some may find the sexual content disturbing.

Drama
23.mins


2. Still from 'Dancer'.DANCER
James Webber (London)

Two people are at the centre of a tragic accident. A family and friends grieve. The perpetrator feels guilty. What will happen if both sides ever meet? The structure and subtle acting in this poignant drama are near perfect.
