TRES TRISTES TIGRES

Director: DAVID MUNOZ.
Migration can provide hope for escaping poverty. Yet many migrants know about the other side of that hope - suffering. Leaving behind their homes and families they submit themselves to the mercy of middlemen at home and employers in distant countries. Tens of thousands become indebted and impoverished as a consequence. This film tells the story of three men from the rural village of Rajbari, Bangladesh who travelled to Dubai.

Troyanos

#
Director: Vera Fabrykant.
El skinhead es un tipo pelado, lleva borceguíes, a veces tiradores, están los que andan tatuados de pies a cabeza. Lo que muchos no saben es que hay algunos que llevan un parche con la figura de un casco troyano de perfil, negro con letras blancas que dicen “SHARP”. Es decir, Skinhead Against Racial Predjuice (Skinhead contra el prejuicio racial). También se llaman a sí mismos “antifascistas”. La cultura skinhead existe desde hace 40 años. En Buenos Aires ya lleva más de 20 y sin embargo los prejuicios siguen intactos. La gente les tiene miedo y la prensa los difama. Son considerados una “tribu urbana” en el mejor de los casos y en el peor (y el más común) se los tilda de neo nazis. Lejos de eso, el movimiento skinhead se origina en 1969 en Inglaterra, cuando la llegada de una ola de inmigración de Jamaica irrumpe en los barrios obreros. Los jamaiquinos comienzan a juntarse con los “mods” y se dan cuenta que no sólo tienen en común su origen de clase trabajadora, sino que además comparten el gusto por la música negra. Por ende, el skinhead nace, nada más y nada menos, que de la unión de blancos y negros, siendo éste el verdadero espíritu del movimiento. Lo curioso es que a pesar de lo que los medios de comunicación afirmen, la mayor parte de los skinheads de Buenos Aires siguen esta tradición. Troyanos mostrará la parte de la historia británica (cómo nació y se fue transformando el movimiento), pero hará especial hincapié en cómo fue recibido y adaptado en Buenos Aires. Será un documental con un estilo formal expositivo, en el que se usarán principalmente entrevistas y material de archivo. Una vez desarraigado el prejuicio del espectador común, se mostrarán las distintas aristas de una tan interesante como poco explorada cultura.

Trulichka

Director: Jean Counet.
Time seems to have stopped in the village of Pededze in northeast Latvia. Animals are making noise, the wind is sighing and a wrinkly old lady, leaning on a curved walking cane, is chasing chickens out of the stable. But time has not stopped: on the contrary. Time is passing and Latvia has gone through some drastic changes during the past fifteen years. Trulichka is a portrayal of the life in Pededze village. There the old and new generations live side by side. Old folks reminisce over the good old Soviet times, lamenting the new life and unemployment following the fall of socialism. Some of their relatives have stayed behind Russian borders and without a visa they can’t go see each other. As to the youth of EU times, they don’t feel any need to visit their former motherland. Trulichka is a warm and humane depiction of the old making way for the new, and also of their mutual harmony in today’s Latvia, living under winds of change.

Trust Me

Director: Roberto Rizzo.
A six degree of separation story, where Ponzi scheme's, drug dealing, and money laundering all meet in a disloyal world of betrayals. Thomas, a white collar Ponzi schemer has a particular way to meet his clients, or better put his prey. A very charming good looking man, well spoken with kind manners betrays his clients with false promises of very good returns on their investments. Thomas runs into problems when he can’t back up his promises any longer. In order to keep his schemes going he needs to do something else to get more cash, and nothing better than money laundering. Thomas creates a money laundering system based on fake donations to different “Charities” all over Manhattan. With the help of his best friend, Al Genovesse, an associate of a prominent Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, Thomas is introduced to the underworld of business fraud and Mafia bosses. One of Al's referrals is Johnny Bramanti, a film producer who runs into trouble when a mafia boss, Michael Dileo, asks him to clean twenty million dollars from a drug deal. Johnny tries to refuse Michael’s offer as a silent partner in his movie business, telling him he needs to “think about it.” Very upset and violent, Michael reminds Johnny that ten years ago he helped him with some money to start his Sexy Films Production, and without “thinking “The money was ready to help. Johnny is literally against the wall and has no other alternative than to help Michael and clean the twenty million dollars for the sake of his life. Johnny wants to nail Michael but he has no proof; the money laundering won’t be enough because he knows that Michael has the best lawyers and always walks free of any charges at the increasing frustration of the DA’S office. Johnny’s only possibility comes when Michael wants to have his young mistress and prisoner, Brigitte, as a star in one of his movies. Johnny uses her to find the proof he needs to put Michael away for good. Her desperate pursuits of the evidence that will make her free, becomes very far reaching and looks more like an impossible task. Frustrated, she tries to escape, but, it proves an unsuccessful move.

Truth Lies Beneath

Director: Gautam Sen.
It was the day of Deepavali, festival of lights… When others were busy in celebrating the sounds and lights of the festival, a girl named Mousumi Ari, of seventeen years of age, was being tortured in her in-laws house. She was murdered eventually. Mousumi hailed from the family of a poor fisherman in Narayanpur village, Kakdwip, 24 Parganas, India and was married to a boy of her village, at the age of barely sixteen. Her father-in-laws, Swadesh Ari was a home guard in the local Kakdwip Police Station. After her marriage she fell prey to the wrath of her in-laws and was subjected to torture regularly. On the day of Deepavali, she was murdered by Swadesh Ari and his family members. The administration not only remained mute. An unholy nexus of the police, hospital-morgue authority and legal administration tried to veil the culprits… to establish the murder as a case of suicide. They wiped out the trace of murder and twisted the events to suite their choice. Apprehending the caucus of some vested interested, Sukumar Sahu, Laxmi Sahu, the parents of Mousumi and their relatives did not cremated the dead body of Mousumi but buried it under the earth in quest of justice. The film depicts the victim’s voice, so far unheard and the experience of the rights activists stood by the side of the victim family…. narrating what happened actually and explores the eventually of Mousumi’s murder.
