- Forgotten space
- The sea is forgotten until disaster strikes. But perhaps the biggest seagoing disaster is the global supply chain, which - maybe in a more fundamental way than financial speculation - leads the world economy to the abyss. This essayistic, political documentary follows container cargo aboard ships, barges, trains and trucks, listening to workers, engineers, planners, politicians, and those marginalized by the global transport system. We discover the most sophisticated expression of the belief that the maritime economy, and the sea itself, is somehow obsolete.

- Lyrical nitrate & The forbidden quest : the found-footage films of Peter Delpeut.
- Two films originally distributed by Jean Desmet or exhibited in his own cinema, Lyrical nitrate is a selection of silent film fragments, constructed from old black & white and color tinted and toned nitrate films. Soundtrack is present on some of the clips and is from old recordings, ranging from Caruso to the sounds of a glass harmonica. The second film is a mockumentary that tells the fictional story of the ship Hollandia sailing near South Pole in 1905-1906 as told by ship's carpenter J.C. Sullivan. Uses the documentary style filming intermixed with archival footage actually shot during the period of real expeditions to document this fictional story of a tunnel connecting the two poles.
