    Take a break before finals and watch a documentary! Winter Buoy is Cannes-awarded Frida Kempff's first feature documentary, a poetic and intimate story that portrays life in all its fragility.

If these expectant mothers can only manage to break free of the vicious cycles dogging their steps, they have a chance to keep their newborns. Lunch will be provided.
