107 Mothers by Peter Kerekes

Leysa is convicted of the murder of her husband. She gives birth to her son in a prison for young mothers and is allowed to stay with him for three years before they are separated, until the end of her sentence. This extraordinarily sensitive film shifts between fiction and documentary: Leysa is played by an actress, but the other characters are real guards and prisoners in the Odessa prison where this deeply moving film was shot.

Grands reportages

Made to Measure by Hans Block, Moritz Riesewieck & Cosima Terrasse

Can a person be recreated alone based on their search history? Five years of a woman's life have been excavated to create a composite portrait, subsequently played by an actress. The original is then presented to its double. Part experiment, part cross-media project, part documentary, Made to Measure is a dizzying project about the surrender of our private lives, directed by the filmmakers behind The Cleaners (FIFDH 2018).

    La Finance lave plus vert by Matteo Born & Romain Girard

    Since autumn 2019, a green wave has been sweeping across Europe. The climate issues raised by Greta Thunberg and the thousands of protesters are bringing a new, younger, female generation to power, promising to shake up the climate-sceptic old guard. A wind of change anticipated by banks and public institutions, who for some years now have been shifting to “sustainable finance”. Following the financial crisis and repeated tax scandals, an opportunity to improve its image has presented itself for the banking sector.

    The illusion of abundance by Erika Gonzalez Ramirez and Matthieu Lietaert

    Carolina, Bertha and Maxima share a common goal: they are leading today's fight against modern conquistadors. Whereas governments and corporations, trapped in a global race towards unlimited growth, need to get the cheapest raw materials, these three women tell us a story of tireless courage: how to keep fighting to protect nature when your life is at risk?

    «The Illusion of Abundance» is not only a film about those who pay the high price of 'development' and 'progress', it is above all a film about the globalization of their environmental resistance and their conviction to hunt down misbehaving transnational corporations, wherever they hide.
