Other European films in the running for the prize include the Belgian director Jonas Geirnart's animated short, Flatlife on the daily life of four neighbours; Trafic from the Romanian Catalin Mitulescu; Der Schwimmer (The Swimmer) from German Klaus Huettmann; and Thinning the Herd from the Dane Rie Rasmussen.
The American continent is represented by Michelange Quay's The Gospel of the Creole Pig about a slum in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; Accordion, Canadian director Michèle Cournoyer's film about a woman who lets herself go in the pleasures of the Internet; and finally, Quimera, directed by the Brazilian Eryk Rocha, son of director Glauber Rocha, that takes the viewer into a journey mixing contemporary art and cinema. Finally, David Rittey's Closer, a short film that uses silence, represents New Zealand in the competition.
