WASTE : THE NUCLEAR NIGHTMARE

Director: Eric GUERET.
Looking at the cases of France, Germany, the United States and Russia, this scientific and political report explores the taboo subject of nuclear power, particularly the darkest aspects of the latter. Nuclear power is not without risks, its Achilles heel being nuclear waste.People are afraid of it, scientists cannot find an acceptable solution to the problem, industry companies are trying to reassure us and politicians avoid talking about it altogether. But what do we really know about nuclear waste ? How can people have a clear vision of something that has always been shrouded in secrecy ? In seeking “the truth about waste”, this film aims to provide, for the very first time, the keys to understanding the choices which weigh heavily on the future of humanity.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO MONSANTO

Director: Marie-Monique ROBIN.
Since its beginnings in 1901, the Monsanto empire has been built upon on the manufacture of chemical products that have ended up being banned from the market. Every time, the multinational has lied, hidden or doctored studies that demonstrate the harmfulness of its products. It has had proceedings brought against it and been ordered to pay hefty fines, but that has not stopped its irresistible ascension. Today, it is the world leader in GMO production.  The transgenic seeds it markets are resistant to the powerful herbicide, Roundup, its landmark product for twenty years. An investigation into the Saint Louis “giant” and the recent developments it has made in biotechnology and seed control.

CUBA, AN AFRICAN ODYSSEY

Director: Jihan EL TAHRI .
An untold story about the cold war on the African continent, or the defeat of an ideal, internationalism, which Cuban guerrillas failed to defend. In Africa, in the early '60s, four adversaries with conflicting interests face off: the Soviets want to expand their influence; the United States intend to appropriate the continent's natural riches; the former empires seek to revive their shaky colonial power; and the young nations defend their newly-won independence, armed with an ideal: internationalism. African revolutionaries like Patrice Lumumba, Amilcar Cabral and Agostinho Neto call on Cuban guerrillas to help them in their struggle, and Fidel Castro's men will play a central role on the continent, from Che Guevara's tragicomic epic in the Congo up to the triumph of the battle of Cuito Cuanavale in Angola. This film relates a largely untold story, going from 1961 to 1989, with archives and interviews to back it up.

MONO NO AWARE FILM PERFORMANCE EVENT

You are welcome to submit. MONO NO AWARE is open to any person or group of persons making work incorporating Super8 or 16mm film format as part of that presentation. For example: blending film & theater performance, musicians creating a visual experience for their sound, & experimental filmmakers working with story tellers. Entries will only be accepted on Super8 or 16mm film. FILM ONLY. No Digital Video. Part of our purpose in having this gathering is to put an emphasis on the cinematic experience. Film & video are so easily accessible, you can watch something on a website, television, a home projector, or even your cell phone. For some filmmakers those vehicles are copies of the original artwork, each one degraded by its format. We believe there is a magic in seeing the film as a print. There is a presence a poet has reading his/her own writing. There is a feeling that resonates in your chest when you see a band live. For these reasons we are encouraging live music, performance, and audio to expand the cinematic experience beyond the screen. We ask that in the spirit of the festival you not video or create copies of your performance. Some participants have gone as far as to destroy the work after its first run at the event. Embrace the film medium. Cut & splice found footage you picked up at a yard sale. Take all your unused footage from an old project and create something new with the unused scenes. Spend 50 bucks to shoot & process 100 feet of 16mm & make a 3 minute masterpiece with a friend's Bolex. Paint on the film surface. Go on eBay and pick up a dozen old reels for ten bucks. Run 10 projectors at once on a single screen. Splice, dice, paste, shoot, and do it all over again. Create visual poetry, colorful abstractions, a comedic narrative, a cinematic comet that will light up the space for several minutes and live in the minds of those there to see it in its pure state. While it's there, fill the audience's ears with a score nothing short of sonorous.
