Director: Erez Laufer & Miri Laufer.
Can the means used to resolve the conflict in South Africa be applied to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict? As someone who experienced both conflicts firsthand, Robi Damelin wonders about this. Born in South Africa during the apartheid era, she later lost her son, who was serving with the Israeli Army reserve in the Occupied Territories. At first she attempted to initiate a dialogue with the Palestinian who killed her child. When her overtures were rejected, she embarked on a journey back to South Africa to learn more about the country’s Truth and Reconciliation Committee in overcoming years of enmity. Robi’s thought-provoking journey leads from a place of deep personal pain to a belief that a better future is possible.
Director: Emiliano Pappacena - Anna Maria Selini.
In ports all over the world, alongside cargo and tourist ships, there are also vessels that have not been operated for months, if not for years. These abandoned ships are left moored to rust by their shipowners, often never to be recovered, because of financial distress, security issues or seizure. The problem is that in most cases the whole crew is still on board. These seafarers, who were recruited months before with a valid employment contract, suddenly find themselves thousands of kilometres from home, without food, water and, ever worse, pay cheque. This TV report was made by Emiliano Pappacena and Anna Maria Selini in collaboration with Antonio Demma.

by Sandy Mandelberger, Film New York Editor Summer is the traditional time at movie multiplexes for blockbuster films from the Hollywood studios that tend to focus more on explosions and special effects than effective storylines. While there is no denying the box office clout of such films as TRANSFORMERS, TERMINATOR SALVATION and WOLVERINE, there are some less deafening art films that are also being released on American screens. Call it counter-programming, a strategy of offering a breather ...
