Salas's Dead Man Working -- a wry feature-length mockumentary, that skillfully sets up the recent economic crisis as the prelude to a very bleak future; Leon Prudovsky's Welcome and our Condolences - a existential drama from Israel; Anya Belkina's System Preferences -- a fascinating animated documentary about the computer pioneer Bashir Rameyev; Jono Oliver's Home - an independent film about a man recovering from mental illness who tries to rebuild his life; Brian Titshaw's funky and quirky feature The Space Jockey Pursuit; Don Freeman's Art House: Part One - a superbly crafted documentary moves poetically through the houses of four artists, who created these splendid interiors for themselves; Richard Hankin's 16 Acres which focuses on the rebuilding of the World Trade Center and many others.
