Granny's Flags

Dir: Naziha Arebi

Haja Fatma, a mother to eight children, tells the tale of family life in Tripoli during the Libyan Revolution. Women, young and old, all contributed during these hostile months in their own unique way. A human portal into the acts of ordinary people in their hope for freedom.

Just beside an endless white desert up in the Bolivian Andes, Daniel Lopez and his family lead traditional salt workers' lives. Since it has become known that Salar de Uyuni holds the world's biggest amount of lithium - the future's resource - their little village finds itself in a place where global interest reaches in. A careful portrait of two generations from a culture on the dawn of globalisation.

Bill Cunningham New York

Dir: Richard Press

RED WEDDING

Dir: Guillaume Suon & Lida Chan

Sochan Pen was one of them. Aged 16, she was beaten and raped by her husband before managing to escape, albeit deeply scarred by the trauma of her experience.
