Zombillenium is an amusement park like no other : only
genuine werewolves, vampires, zombies, and other
citizens of the undead community are employed there…
for eternity. One day, Hector, a young compliance officer,
comes to control the park’s safety and threatens to shut it
down. Francis, the vampire who manages the park, has no
choice but to bite him to protect his business.
And so Hector is hired. He gets to know his co-workers and
Gretchen, a witch who’s interning at the park, teaches him
the workplace culture. Hector could well be Zombillenium’s
last chance : attendance figures are down and the park
needs a new special attraction to avoid bankruptcy. But
deep down Hector longs for his young daughter, Lucy,
who’s waiting for him back in the ‘real’ world...

ION
Famous Israeli author and renowned cartoonist, Michel Kichka is the son of a man who was the sole survivor of
his family, all of whom were exterminated in the concentration camps. At 20 years old, Michel’s father returned
to his native Belgium, fathering four children, two girls and two boys. In response to their father’s life being so
devastating, his children have never stopped wanting to free themselves, each in his or her own way.
URB
Second Generation is not a reckoning with history. It’s a film that retraces the decisive moments of a childhood spent
in the shadow of the Holocaust, from Belgium to the promised land, filled with both nightmares and joyful moments.

and finds out where to buy fake identity papers with the hope of making it to Taiwan. But Guo has different ambitions…
