9pm – 7 Boxes: Playing with the genre of classic Hollywood car chase thrillers, Paraguayan film 7 Boxes tells the story of young Victor who is on the run with a dangerous load to deliver...but his vehicle of choice is a wheelbarrow not a motorcycle. (Spanish with English subtitles)

9pm – Consuming Spirits: 15 years in the making, director Chris Sullivan painstakingly created an animated universe, using glass painting, pencil drawing, stop motion and other techniques.
