BORAT - CULTURAL LEARNINGS OF AMERICA FOR MAKE BENEFIT GLORIOUS NATION OF KAZAKHSTAN
USA 2006, 1.24
Dir: Larry Charles, cast: Sacha Baron Cohen, Ken Davitian, Luenell
In "Borat" Sacha Baron Cohen - star of hit comedy series "Da Ali G Show," takes his outrageous Kazakhstani reporter character Borat to the big screen. In this hilariously offensive movie, Borat travels from his primitive home in Kazakhstan to the U.S. to make a documentary. On his cross-country road-trip he meets real people in real situations with hysterical consequences.

CHILDREN OF MEN
USA - Great Britain 2006, 1.54
Dir: Alfonso Cuaron, cast: Clive Owen, Julianne Moore, Michael Caine
"Children of Men" envisages a world one generation from now that has fallen into anarchy on the heels of an infertility defect in the population. The world’s youngest citizen has just died at 18, and humankind is facing the likelihood of its own extinction.
Set against a backdrop of London torn apart by violence and warring nationalistic sects, "Children of Men" follows disillusioned bureaucrat Theo (Owen) as he becomes an unlikely champion of Earth’s survival. When the planet’s last remaining hope is threatened, this reluctant activist is forced to face his own demons and protect her from certain peril.

LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE
USA 2006, 1.43
Dir: Jonathan Dayton ja Valerie Faris, cast: Greg Kinnear, Toni Collette, Abigail Breslin, Alan Arkin
"Little Miss Sunshine" is an American family road comedy that shatters the mold. Brazenly satirical and yet deeply human, the film introduces audiences to one of the most endearingly fractured families in recent cinema history: the Hoovers, whose trip to a pre-pubescent beauty pageant results not only in comic mayhem but in death, transformation and a moving look at the surprising rewards of being losers in a winning-crazed culture. A runaway hit at the Sundance Film Festival, where it played to standing ovations, the film strikes a nerve with everyone who’s ever been awestruck by how their muddled families seem to make it after all.

Great Britain - USA 2006, 2.10
Dir: Christopher Nolan, cast: Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson, David Bowie
From acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan (“Memento,” “Batman Begins”) comes a thriller woven out of the stuff of illusions. In this twisting, turning tale of mystery, two Victorian-era magicians spark a powerful rivalry that builds into an escalating battle of tricks and an unquenchable thirst to uncover the other’s trade secrets. As these two remarkable men pit daring against desire, showmanship against science and ambition against friendship, the results are dangerous, deadly and deceptive.
NB! Before the film Sleepwalkers’ Student Film Festival screens "Pihtas põhjas", a music video of Vaiko Eplik & Eliit.
