1975 the Saharawi people, nomads of North-West Africa, were forced to live in three different zones due to the Moroccan occupation: a refugee camp on Algerian territory, that became a state of its own; a won-back part of the desert and the occupied zones along the Atlantic coast. Today artificial borders and a 2,700 kilometres long Wall wanted by the Moroccan authorities divide the Saharawi.

In each zone the audience will be invited by a protagonist, each from a different generation to have a tea. They tell their stories and give insight into their lives and experiences. … Read More »

In the 70ies and 80ies a Bollywood Film that flopped in India, succeeded to create a small cultural revolution in Algeria: “Janitou”. For the first time millions of Algerians, both men and women, gathered together and watched this exotic film that melted their hearts. The film became an overnight sensation. After the end of the Soviet affine social People’s Republic, the land suffered from a civil war and brutal terrorism, succumbing to a dark decade.

The documentary accompanies the collective memory of a nation and the personal journey of the director, a young Algerian man, breaking a societal taboo: to talk openly about love and restrain in … Read More »

Concrete Empire website

From 1967 to 1986 Albania built 750,000 bunkers for a war that would never happen. With a population of only 3,5 million, the bunkers totalled one for every four citizens. The construction of these concrete domes – ordered by the dictator Enver Hoxha -, led to years of seclusion, economic crisis, and corruption.

“Concrete Empire” is a feature length documentary that explores the history of the Albanian people; their trials, tribulations and triumphs during and after communist rule.
The film poses many questions: How is a community shaped by the extreme paranoia of a single person and its resulting isolation? How do individuals live through extreme hardship? How does a nation redefine … Read More »

Greenland happens to host the loneliest grave on earth: it is Nazi Lieutenant Zacher’s burial spot. The smallest battle of World War Second took place in this desert of ice on the largest battlefield of the world – fought between the Germans and the Danish. The reason to fight was to build up weather stations and the reason for a new archeological expedition today is to look for their importance.
