Caricaturistes - Fantassins de la démocratie

This is a documentary about cartoon artists spoken in the first person by the artists themselves. The list is impressive: from Le Monde’s cartoonist Plantu to Damien Glez from Burkina Faso, the film features professionals of cartoon art in their different work environments, mostly dangerous areas. In the beginning, we hear Plantu’s voic...

Cinema: A Public Affair

This is a story of resistance, cinephilia –lucid, combative, and not at all mournful– and civism. Naum Kleiman is a historian, curator of the Eisenstein Archive, and director of the Moscow Museum, which was closed in 2005. Kleiman is a charming man with an elegant and paused loquacity, who states his case before authoritarianism with br...

El botón de nácar

Following his acclaimed 2010 documentary Nostalgia for the Light, legendary Patricio Guzmán delivers an equally stunning achievement with The Pearl Button. Whereas Nostalgia… vividly explored Chile’s national heritage through its distinctive skies and deserts, The Pearl Button takes water as its central metaphor through which fl...

El ruido de la memoria

The director of Garage Olimpo approached the figure of Vera Vigevani Jarach, a loving 86 year-old woman who was born in Italy and came to Argentina in 1939, and later joined the Mothers of Plaza de Mayo. Her heartbreaking story synthesizes two different horrors: the Holocaust and the last military dictatorship. She lost her grandfather, who died on...

Esto es lo que hay

In one of their many songs –the one entitled “What Belongs to Everyone Belongs to No One”, Los Aldeanos say, among many other things: “Justifying all with the blockade / you need to get a license to fart / I see, I see, how ugly this is getting (…) / no evil lasts a hundred years, yup, but half, yes.” Los Aldean...

Finding Phong

Young and troubled Le Quoc Phong lives in a village in Vietnam with one single thought: travelling to Hanoi to have a sex-change operation. In an über-redundant selfie-mode, he proves his anguish by elaborating in tears –and yet also a curious dry crying– on the horrors he is facing. The recipient of this confession as well as the...

Hotline

Hotline inquires into the everyday work of an Israeli NGO that fights against two almost unbreakable forces: xenophobia and bureaucracy. Volunteers assist illegal African immigrants who arrive in Israel escaping repression and torture but end up trapped in an atrocious limbo, labeled as “infiltrators” and imprisoned in growing detention...

Jade Miners

While extraction industries were once an important part of Burma’s economy, today others, mainly agriculture, have relegated the activity. Despite that, in the northern part of the country, in the state of Kachin, a group of men endures miserable living and working conditions in the hopes of finding in the mud a small piece of mineral that co...

L’Abri

A new frontal view of the bumps in Switzerland/Europe/the First World: the everyday life of a shelter in Lausanne that only allows fifty immigrants each night, which results in a chilling selection ritual every day. Melgar distances himself from overstressing or denouncing through the exposition of the harsh reality, and instead turns it over to th...

Stories of Our Lives

Five independent fictions converge in a theme that is common to all of them: the social and legal condemnation suffered in Kenya by individuals whose sexuality doesn’t fit with the normative heterosexual model. Based on anonymous testimonies by Kenyan LGBTIQ people, and almost as a manifesto in favor of sexual freedom, Stories of Our Lives po...

The Look of Silence

It takes wisdom and character to be able to portray the humanity of a mass-murderer, to find beauty in absolute horror, and to forgive and embrace such deep contradictions. Oppenheimer is not making a sequel of his extraordinary The Act of Killing, but an “in-quel”: he gets inside his previous film and goes deeper, digging bravely in th...

Walsh entre todos

In one of the intertitles of Walsh entre todos, artist Jorge González Perrín tells that, for many years, he felt the need of honoring his friends who were murdered and disappeared during the Argentine military dictatorship, and that it was when those responsible went to trial that he came up with a way of carrying it out. So in 2010 a...
