DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL

CHAR... the No-Man's Island

Director: sourav sarangi.

Meet Rubel, fourteen years old boy smuggling rice from India to Bangladesh. He has to cross the river Ganga acting as the international border. The same river eroded his home in mainland India when he was just four. Years later a fragile island called Char was formed within the large river. Rubel, with his family and many homeless people settled in this barren field controlled by the border police. He dreams of going his old school in India but reality forces him to smuggle stuff to Bangladesh. But he fights on while monsoon clouds arrive inviting the flood, the river swells up again. 'Char may disappear but we won’t, smiles the boy.Meet Rubel, fourteen years old boy smuggling rice from India to Bangladesh. He has to cross the river Ganga acting as the international border.

"Overlooked Suspect-What If OJ SImspson Didn't Do It ? "

Director: David Nerman.
This compelling documentary raises important and critical questions and highlights an incredible search for the truth, by one of America’s leading and acclaimed private investigators, William C. Dear, along with a team of internationally recognized experts in their respective fields. Each of these global experts in their fields has come to the same, independent conclusion. The documentary includes references to high-level communication between the LAPD and agencies responsible for the original trial, among others, and the lead investigator William Dear, which makes the viewer wonder…Why the Overlooked Suspect was not more vigorously pursued? Was there a cover up? The film’s Producers state: “We have distilled over 16 years and 5,000 hours of intense research and investigation into a one-hour, thought-provoking, viewer-friendly documentary that will empower the public to decide what they feel, in conclusion, about the case and whether there was a rush to judgment”. They add: “In the end, you be the Judge”.
