OUR AFRICA

For more than 35 years, the Soviets expand their geopolitical influence in Africa with humanitarian aid programs based on Marxist ideology. Up until 1991, some of the country’s best filmmakers were sent along to document the ‘glorious advance’ of socialism on the African continent. The Soviet Union broke apart and “socialism” became a dirty word. Russia, struggling with an economic crisis, lost all political interest in Africa. Still, thousands of kilometers of film footage remain.

TUPAMARO: URBAN GUERRILLAS

In Caracas, Venezuela, the murder capital of the world, the Tupamaros have been hailed by some as modern-day Robin Hoods, and by others as violent thugs who rule the shanty towns with an eye for eye mentality and no regard for the law. With unprecedented access to these controversial vigilantes, director Martin Markovits chronicles seven turbulent years in the life of Alberto 'Chino' Carias, a former guerrilla fighter and Tupamaro leader, who rose to prominence after Hugo Chavez became president of Venezuela. Once accused of robbing banks and killing cops, Chino sheds his outlaw reputation and embraced Chavez's socialist revolution that promised to empower the country's poor.

DOUBLE ME

Following the discovery of manuscripts, photographs and films of the Colombian ethnographer Gregorio Hernández de Alba, a delusion is intertwined and presented: the one that caused -and continues to cause- the tragic disagreement and misunderstanding between Spaniards and Native Americans, between conquerors and settlers, and the traces of this trauma in history. Double Me is a hypnotic visual and sound experience, built as a palimpsest of different eras and materials. An archive film both found and created; a documentary filled with fiction and stories that update the main drama of the history of Colombia: the impossibility to come face-to-face with one another and to recognize in our differences a shared humanity and a shared homeland.

THE MAN WHO STOLE BANKSY

In 2007 Banksy slips into Palestine to paint on walls. Among the artworks Banksy and his team left in the streets of Bethlehem, one in particular, the mural of an Israeli soldier asking a donkey for its papers incites fury: it's one thing to enter the territory and start working without even introducing yourself to the community, but it's quite another to depict them as asses for all the world to see. Local taxi driver Walid steps in and with the support of the community and a water-jet stone cutter cuts out the offending wall. His declared aim: to put it on Ebay and sell it to the highest bidder. What follows is a story of clashing cultures, art, identity, theft and black market.
Ono što sledi je priča o sukobu kultura, umetnosti, identiteta, krađe i crnog tržišta.

ROLL RED ROLL

At a pre-season football party in small-town Steubenville, Ohio, a heinous crime took place: the assault of a teenage girl by members of the beloved high school football team. What transpired would garner national attention and result in the sentencing of two key offenders. But it was the disturbing social media evidence uncovered online by crime blogger Alex Goddard that provoked the most powerful questions about the case, and about the collusion of teen bystanders, teachers, parents and coaches to protect the assailants and discredit the victim. As it painstakingly reconstructs the night of the crime and its aftermath, Roll Red Roll uncovers the engrained rape culture at the heart of the incident, acting as a cautionary tale about what can happen when teenage social media bullying runs rampant and adults look the other way. The film unflinchingly asks: “why didn’t anyone stop it?”

ARCADIA

With Arcadia, the BAFTA award-winning Scottish director Paul Wright has repurposed archive material to tell a provocative story for our times. Set to an original score by musicians Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp), Arcadia blends a mixture of film and TV footage from the BFI National Archive and regional archives around the UK, creating a powerful mosaic of images, sounds and moods, taking in folk carnivals and masked parades, hunting and harvesting, communes and raves, mechanisation, environmental destruction, fires, floods, storms. Arcadia reminds us what happens when our connection to nature, and each other, frays and unravels. By exploring and asking ourselves what we have gained and lost in the last century, perhaps we will discover something of what we’ll need to survive in the next.
