    Cubes is about the relationships formed of necessity when two people get partnered up in cubicles. Our personal lives tend to invade our workspaces, and we are often forced to share both with people who we might not ordinarily choose to spend time with. Sometimes we might get along well enough to become "work friends" with our cubicle partners, and perhaps go out for the odd drink. More often, however, these are people who we would feel at least slightly uncomfortable around in the supermarket, away from the confines of the cube. In Scene 1, Henry and Charlene while away the office day playing spirited (and often mean-spirited) games at the expense of their co-workers. But the fun comes to an end when Charlene catches her boyfriend in a compromising position, and enlists an unwitting Henry to get revenge. In Scene 2, Laurie's idyllic life is thrown into turmoil and she is forced to look to the nearby Charlene for an unlikely sympathetic shoulder. In Scene 3, Laurie has to figure out how to survive working side by side with Ted, the company freak. In Scene 4, Barry, a cocky new programmer, comes face to face with the inevitability that is Ted. In Scene 5, a torrid office affair faces trouble as Barry and Lindsey get honest with each other. And finally, in Scene 6 Laurie returns to work only to find that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Written by Jason Sherry

                Anselmo works as a taxi driver at the international airport in Santiago, Chile. He is a decent man with good intentions who earned the nickname "The King of Fools" when he returned a very large sum of money that a passenger left in his car to the police. He is secretly in love with Sandra, the girlfriend of his best friend and neighbor,Mario. Anselmo has never attempted, out of respect for his friend, any kind of affectionate behavior toward Sandra. All of their lives become turned upside-down when Eva, Anselmo's beautiful passenger, convinces him to take care of her four-year-old son. Seduced by the gorgeous woman, Anselmo agrees to it without realizing the mess into which he is getting himself. The child turns out to be a kleptomaniac and involves Anselmo in all sorts of trouble. Sandra takes pity on Anselmo and helps him take care of the child. The closeness between the two provokes the attraction they both feel for one another to surface, causing them anguish and confusion. When Eva arrives to retrieve her son, she involves Anselmo in some sketchy business. Anselmo tries to flee, but he does not want to abandon the child with whom he has begun a mutual caring relationship. On the other hand, his relationship with Sandra begins to get out of hand and even more irresistible. Anselmo is constantly tempted to change the way he is, to leave his honor at his side in order to make the most of the opportunities that present themselves to him, as much in his love life as in his physical well-being. Nevertheless, and to his dismay, he will continue to bear the throne of "The King of Fools" until the end of the film. Written by Anonymous

                  Fabricating Tom Zé is a documentary that portrays the life and work of one of the most controversial Brazilian musicians, having as its backdrop Tom Zé's 2005 European Tour. The documentary mixes different video, film and animation formats in order to show a detailed vision of Tom Zé's personal musical universe, in which a guitar and a vacuum cleaner have the same melodic importance. In intimate interviews, he narrates different parts of his life and tells us about his musical debut in the early 60s, his downfall during the 70s and his 90s comeback. The film carries interviews with Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, David Byrne and others. Tom Zé, at his 70th anniversary, continues to produce highly original music. Written by Decio Matos Jr.
