Lampedusa-Parigi: diario di viaggio

Dialog language:

french,italian,arabic

Synopsis:

Lampedusa - Paris: travel journal" is an "on the road" documentary about a journey from Italy to Paris of Tunisian migrants, who fled away from the Tunisian revolution. The first part of the documentary features the Tunisians landing on the island of Lampedusa, their transfer to the immigration reception centres, the issue of temporary residence permits (which gave rise to much controversy between France and Italy), their railway journey throughout the Italian peninsula, the crossing of the border at Ventimiglia and their arrival in France. The second part was shot a few months later and follows some of the characters in Paris. Here, we discover where they live, whether or not they have found a job and how they spend their days in France. Through the involvment of the director, we share emotions, tiredness and fears of these young people. We accompany them in their daily lives in a new country which appears very different from their expectations.

Synopsis:

Over 60 million Indians belong to communities imprisoned by the British as "criminals by birth." The Chhara of Ahmedabad, in Western India, are one of 198 such "Criminal Tribes." Declaring that they are "born actors," not "born criminals," a group of Chhara youth have turned to street theater in their fight against police brutality, corruption, and the stigma of criminality — a stigma internalized by their own grandparents. 'Please Don't Beat Me, Sir!' follows the lives of these young actors and their families as they take their struggle to the streets, hoping their plays will spark a revolution.

A cinematic journey into the world of Yona Wallach, a legendary poet, who's radical life and poetry ended in an early age, leaving behind a myth and a trail of admirers.

Ramon rojas – Dreams of huts

Length:

27 min

Age:

No limit

Original title:

Ramon Rojas – Sueños de chozas

Dialog language:

spanish

Synopsis:

Musician, street poet, bum by own choice, anarchist, Rojas is one of those urban characters so marginal to the system that is virtually invisible to a majority of society. Re-discovered by visual artist María Rosa Andreotti’s camera, Rojas is featured as an essential part of the current social and economic Argentine landscape. "Ramón Rojas · Sueños de chozas" ("Ramón Rojas · Dreams of huts") deals with culture as refuge and value of survival. The documentary proposes a look into Ramón’s paradoxes as well as at the external decisions to which one may be driven, almost to the limit of losing the most intimate thing we have – the right to privacy, to fantasy and hence, to individual freedom, for all of which a home or a refuge is absolutely necessary.
