4 What is lined up in the near future

5 Anything else you want to share/tell/show/preach

I came across an inspiring sphere of films which are being made in/about the peripheries. If you have the chance, watch for example Vitalina Varela (2019) made by Portuguese director Pedro Costa, and listen to him speaking about the film.
