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.



Area 51, flying saucers from another world - and the program to create a fierce technology. Bob Lazar has lived a wild life. He remains the singular most famous and controversial name in the world of UFOs. The reason you know about Area 51 is because Lazar came forward and told you about it. His disclosures have turned his life upside-down and he has tried to stay out of the spotlight. For this reason, he has never let any filmmaker into the private world of his daily life - that is - until now. Corbell’s film will explore Lazar’s claims through the lens of thirty years - providing rare and never before revealed footage - guaranteed to alter the landscape of the debate.



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.
