CATFISH

Dir: Ariel Schulman & Henry Joost

In 2007 the filmmakers sensed a story unfolding as they began to film the life of Ariel's brother, Nev. They had no idea that their project would lead to the most exhilarating and unsettling months of their lives.

CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY

Dir: Michael Moore

Moore explores the issue he has been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans and the rest of the world. It explores what price Americans pay for their love of capitalism.

CONFESSIONS OF A NAZI SPY

Dir: Anatole Litva

CORRIDOR #8

Dir: Boris Despodov

In 1997 the EU launched Corridor # 8 – a massive project to build a road connecting the Black Sea to the Adriatic and the people of Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania to each other for the first time. Ten years on, not much has happened, and the residents along the proposed route are not sure what to make of it – after all, who said they wanted to be connected up in the first place?

CAN TUNIS

Dir: José González Morandi & Paco Toledo

Can Tunis is a seedy suburb of Barcelona. The local authorities are determined to knock down the entire quarter, but the Gypsies who live there will not budge that easily - they demand alternative housing they can afford. 

CHECKPOINT

Dir: Yoav Shamir

Multi award-winning documentary conveying the grueling reality of Israeli occupation through a series of encounters between heavily armed Israeli soldiers and humiliated Palestinians, at military checkpoints. The impression is one if an endless situation, in which people on both sides are forced into positions that leave little room for human dignity.

CHRONICLE OF A SUMMER

Dir: Jean Rouch & Edgar Morin

Few films can claim as much influence on the course of cinema history as Chronicle of a Summer. The fascinating result of a collaboration between filmmaker-anthropologist Jean Rouch and sociologist Edgar Morin, this vanguard work of what Morin termed cinéma- vérité is a brilliantly conceived and realized sociopolitical diagnosis of the early sixties in France. 

CHOROPAMPA - THE PRICE OF GOLD

Dir: Ernesto Cabellos & Stephanie Boyd

The story of a Peruvian paradise lost after a devastating mercury spill at the Yanacocha mine. The environmental catastrophe turned Choropampa, a quiet village into a hotbed of civil resistance. The mine, partially owned by the World Bank, claim the problem was quickly resolved - the villagers tell a starkly different story.

CHASTIE

Dir: Sergei Dvortsevoy

An ethnographic poem about Kazakhstan, Chastie follows a nomadic shepherd's camp in Kazakhstan - and indifferently allows you to observe the rhythm of life on the grand, severe steppe. The film consists of thirty sequences that demonstrate that even the most elementary activities (eating, sleeping) can possess a great beauty, bliss and especially humour.

CHILDREN ONLY ONCE

Dir: Ditsi Carolino

A documentary about child labor in the Philippine provinces. The directors recorded small children working under excruciating conditions in slaughterhouses, sugarcane fields, and ship docks in order to add to their family income.
