The forgotten space

The forgotten spaceLoading The sea is forgotten until disaster strikes. But perhaps the biggest seagoing disaster is the global supply chain, which - maybe in a more fundamental way than financial speculation - leads the world economy to the abyss. This essayistic, political documentary follows container cargo aboard ships, barges, trains and trucks, listening to workers, engineers, planners, politicians, and those marginalized by the global transport system. We discover the most sophisticated expression of the belief that the maritime economy, and the sea itself, is somehow obsolete.

Deported

DeportedLoading Through the portraits and interviews of four deportees in Haiti and their families in North America, DEPORTED presents the tragedy of broken lives, forced separation from American children and spouses, and alienation and stigmatization endured in a country they don't know and don't understand, a country that most of them left at a very early age. Since 1996, the United States has implemented a policy of repatriation of all foreign residents who have been convicted of crimes. Every two weeks, about 50 Haitian nationals are deported from the United States; 40 percent are convicted legal residents who completed their jail sentence in America. To a lesser extent, Canada applies a similar policy. DEPORTED, winner of Best Documentary Award at the Vues D'Afrique International Film Festival, [...]

The Electric Valley

The Electric ValleyLoading Tennessee Valley Authority -- TVA -- was a project like no other, and after more than a half-century, continues to shape life in the South. The Electric Valley is the first independent film to tell the story of TVA, a tale of one of the most interesting, controversial federal agencies ever created. In 1933 TVA was given the broadest possible mission: to tame the forces of nature, create cheap energy, and produce a lasting prosperity in the Depression-wracked Tennessee Valley, a region the size of Great Britain. For better or worse, it touched peoples' lives in innumerable ways. The film is both political parable and human drama, a narrative journey through fifty years of American history with this controversial institution as its focus. It explores both the issues and the people who [...]
