Production: Didier Brunner, Henri Magalon, Stéphan Roelants, Vincent Tavier / La Parti Productions, Les Armateurs, Maybe Movies, Studiocanal, France 3 Cinéma, Mélusine Productions, RTBF.

Deep below snowy, cobblestone streets, tucked away in networks of winding subterranean tunnels, lives a civilization of hardworking mice, terrified of the bears who live above ground. Unlike her fellow mice, Célestine is an artist and a dreamer –and when she nearly ends up as breakfast for ursine troubadour Ernest, the two form an unlikely bond–. But it isn’t long before their friendship is put on trial by their respective bear-fearing and mice-eating communities.

Spain. Direction: Rafa Molés, Pepe Andreu. Production: SUICAfilms, REC Grabaketa Estudioa. Screenplay: Rafa Molés, Pepe Andreu. Photography: José Luis González. Music: Joan Valent, Montefuji. Edition: Pepe Andreu, Mónica Zamora. Running time: 77min

A couple of dancers appear one morning in a secondary school classroom. It’s Monday and they announce to a group of students they have five days to go on stage and dance. A week for change. Little time, but a huge challenge: to move people when the world paralyses us. Dance forces the teenagers to break their social roles right on the moment of their lives when they are being strengthened. The cute guy is no longer the most admired, the shy one steps forward… Dance forces them to touch each other. They communicate, they become equal. Some will not break free until the last moment. Wilfried Van Poppel and Amaya Lubeigt are the choreographers. He’s Dutch, she’s from San Sebastian. Dance is the common language. The place doesn’t matter. This is their challenge: five days, a classroom full of teenagers, a microcosm where a little “big-bang” takes place.
