Two mermaids came ashore at a night club in Warsaw. Polish director Agnieszka Smoczynska says the film echoes a youth spent in her mother’s nightclub, where she had her “first shot of vodka, first cigarette, first sexual disappointment, and first important feeling for a boy.’ The film takes on H ans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid story into another realm!

Midnight Horror Stories: The Last Ferry
Galip Dursun

I remembered a game as I was waiting in the passenger lounge for the ferry to arrive just a few minutes ago. A game we used to play at home when I was young, in my country that is very far away from here, a relic from the distant past; I don’t even remember how we used to play it. The kind of game that makes me feel a thousand times lonelier than I already am among the crowd waiting to get on the ferry.
