Natural Sciences, an Argentinian wonder directed by Matias Lucchesi, is about a 12-year-old girl who has just reached puberty, and desperately wants to track down her father who she has never known. Her teacher, who first tries to stop her, eventually joins her in her quest. Watch this different kind of a road movie at Kalabhavan, Show 1.

Field of Dogs, by Lech Majewski, is a visual delight from Poland. It tells the story of a young poet who has lost his best friend in a car crash and tries to get in terms with reality. If you a hard-core art film fan, look no further. Instead, head to Sree Kumar theatre for Show 1.

Track 143, directed by Narges Abyar, is an Iranian war film, about a mother who waits for her son to return. The film had seen rave reviews at various festivals.

Winter Sleep is the new film from the Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan.  This 196-minute drama is worth the time, and had earlier bagged the Palme d'Or at Cannes. Screening at New Screen-1, Show 2.

One for the Road by Jack Zagha is exactly what it says. It details three ageing citizens who are trying to wean away from the bottle. Screening at Nila, Show 4.
