Legal rights / Speaking your truth
The voices of many. Testimonies either sung out loud or carefully investigated and thoroughly retold in attempts to make the world a better place. Corruption and misuse of power seen in different variations across the world.
The Killing of a Journalist, (The Killing of a Journalist), Matt Sarnecki, 100 min, Denmark, Czech Republic, USA, 2022.
Identity & (Social) Heritage
Coming to terms with destiny and the lottery of life. These films tell stories about the complicated relationships to the places we call home. Whether it means traveling across the world in order to find out where you come from or accepting the reality that your home can’t really give you what you need. Stories about coping with life with the tools given, and about the people helping along the way.
Challenging Anthropocentrism and nature in focus
A close look at the human world, its past, present and near future. Different perspectives and eyes on our planet remind us to cherish what has been here long before us and prepare us for what might come next. Tributes to the force of nature, and condemnations of humankind.
Invisible Demons, (Invisible Demons), Rahul Jain, 70 min, Finland, Germany, 2021.
Children, youths and rebellion
Not so classic coming of age stories shine light on the clever, thoughtful and funny minds of children and young adults: a much needed perspective. What can we learn from the leaders of tomorrow, and their blunt look at life?
A message from a generation left behind/ On Grief and Growing up
Intimate portraits captured in the heat of the moment or retold through conversation and archive. During the course of these films, we get invited to follow different journeys of healing and coping with the loss of loved ones.
A message from a silenced generation of Russia, a torn generation of Greenland and the people left behind after great tragedies.
