On Sept. 25, "Song From the Southern Seas" (80 minutes) portrays the quaint but scarred town of Tito Veles, Macedonia, in the post-communist world. Three sisters long to escape the suffocating environment of their dying community. Burdened by memories of their late father, each chooses a different path: Sapho struggles to secure a visa to Greece, Slavica desperately searches for a rich husband, and Afrodita harbors hopes for love and children. It is a contemporary story of urban decay, blending a stark realism with memorable performances to create a vivid landscape of life and longing.
