La Mer de la Tranquilité / The Sea of Tranquility

Director: Antoon Cox.
In the first half of the 20th century, La Louvière was a prosperous mining town in Belgium. Today, more than three decades after the closing of the last mine, this same place is generally known as a grim town famous for its high unemployment rates. Still, to those who are willing to look beyond the statistics, this town reveals its beauty. In particular, this documentary shows a multicultural and convivial dream come true. The two main protagonists (see picture) mama Jeanne from Congo and Pierre (see picture) from France mount a terril (slag heap) and discover the beauty of their habitat. Comming from the Congo Mama mounts the terril in a typical African dress and high heels. The little mountain reminds her of Congo. At the summit treats the local population to blazed bananas and Chicken Moambe. The party at the summit depicts well the diversity of this town with the Africans to be the latest immigrants after the Italians, the Turks. Towards the end they are all surprised by the resurrection of singer Claude François, the French singing legend who passed away in an accident just a few years after La Louvière's last mine was closed down.

the third eye of resistance

Director: razi.
A journey through the life of C. Saratchandran who travelled constantly with the camera and cinemas. It is a journey through the vivid, living memories of the protesters at Chaliyar, Plachimada, Muthanga and Kathikudam; through the experiences of his friends and everyone who have travelled with him or parallel to his path. As someone who pioneered in media activism as part of the little magazine movement during the Emergency, Sarat later on took up the very political duty of documenting the popular struggle movements of Kerala. This film tries to be exactly that, a clear take on the popular risings of not just Kerala, but the whole of India, by exploring and coordinating the history of those who have travelled along with Sarat. While capturing the essence of Sarat's political rebellion through documentation, which began with the VHS camera to reach the zeniths of pioneering experimentation with the Digital technology, the film is also an inquiry into the ongoing technical and creative evolutions in the production and screening of documentaries, in its right as an important media in the new world. What Sarat did with his video camera was much more than transmitting the socio-political issues to be portrayed in the mainstream society. He stood by each of those struggles, feeding them with energy and the spirit to go forward, to reach success. For someone like Sarat, who remained wide awake in both at the struggle fronts and in his personal relationships; for someone as unconditionally empathetic, the camera was always the third eye for fulfilling his mission; the third eye of resistance.
