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.

al-Maydān = : The square

al-Maydān =Loading "From the 2011 overthrow of a 30-year dictator, through military rule, and culminating with the forced military removal of the Muslim Brotherhood president in the summer of 2013, we follow a group of Egyptian activists as they battle leaders and regimes, and risk their lives to build a new society of conscience. The Egyptian Revolution has been an ongoing rollercoaster. Through the news, we only get a glimpse of the bloodiest battle, an election, or a million man march.

Tout est permis

Tout est permisLoading "The driving license system with points was set up in France in 1992. It consists in withdrawing a certain number of points from the license (which has twelve or six) depending on the seriousness of the offense, sometimes resulting in the retirement of the permit pure and simple. In such a case, point recovery courses are organized to help offending drivers to recover their license. Coline Serreau has undertaken to film this type of courses in various parts of the French territory, allowing their participants to express themselves, at the same time turning the floor over to different personalities, for or against the system." -- IMDb.

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, [...]

No gazaranLoading "February 2011: 20,000 people demonstrate in southern France against the shale gas licenses that have been issued in backroom deals, Meanwhile the European Parliament begins its first inquiry on the subject, From the outset, there is a split between the conservative representatives, swayed by the economic arguments in favor of fracking, and opponents invoking the precautionary principle. In areas affected by the permits, people are getting organized, building their knowledge, and taking action. Local mayors step up, issue local bylaws and relay information about the situation up to the national government. This grassroots movement makes it all the way to European-level institutions." -- IMDb.
