Seeing in 2-D

Director: Howard Egger-Bovet/Michael Abela.

Seeing in 2-D

Are you seeing the world in three dimensions? Are you? This hip-hop video frames the issue that without an historical understanding, without recognizing the past, you are actually seeing the world in two dimensions. Is there a danger to be focused solely on the present and the future?

Doc Meeting Argentina

DOC Meeting Argentina


DOC Meeting Argentina is a space devoted to documentaries meant to encourage the construction of networks among cinematography and television industry professionals, at the national, regional and international levels; the development of projects under process; the creation of an area for the discussion of different strategies for co-production, marketing and distribution of the documentary genre; and, undoubtedly, a business area created to market documentaries filmed in various formats.

DOC Meeting Argentina Edition has a three-day duration and is geared to cinema and television producers, leaders of state-owned or private national and international television networks, filmmakers and television producers, public officials, cultural managers, lawyers, educators and other film and television industry-related professionals.

DOC Meeting Argentina is divided into three distinct sections:

Conferences, Workshops and Seminars. Two-day duration. Representatives of television networks and co-production funds and forums, among other professionals, will be presenting lectures on topics such as co-production, acquisitions, distribution, new technologies, legislation and copyright.

One On One Meetings. One-day duration. A business roundtable will be held as part of DOC Meeting Argentina. In this roundtable, producers, buyers and sellers will have a chance to show their projects – completed or under development – to co-producers, television representatives and organizations.

Pitching Forum. In DOC Meeting Argentina, producers and/or directors will have a chance to present their projects to a group of 12 Commissioning Editors (representatives of international television networks who are responsible for the co-production or pre-purchase of documentaries), with the intention of receiving international financing for their projects. Twenty-four projects will be selected.

Shadows of War
Innovation and Tradition in European Cinema 1940-1950


The 1940s: a decade of extreme conditions and social unrest – brutal economic conditions, a devastated infrastructure and tight political control. The general topic stays – but with new perspectives.

The focus will be on filmmakers’ reaction to war and the aftermath. What artistic solutions did film directors in different European countries find to handle the chaos and the human and cultural catastrophes around them?

The central focus will again be the repercussions of the general economical and political situation on the aesthetic and artistic production. One facet of this will be a look at the fractures or continuities in filmmakers’ careers.

GOD NO SAY SO

Director: Brigitte Uttar KORNETZKY.
GOD NO SAY SO Sierra Leone 2009 Brigitte Uttar Kornetzky Director, Editor, DOP After 11 years of a war they did not understand, rife with horrible war crimes, Sierra Leoneans live fraternally and peacefully despite a ruthless corruption, which strips them of the basic necessities. God No Say So weaves a colourful mosaic of Sierra Leone and her peoples' extraordinary forgiveness and resilience. In a crux moment, a baker maimed during the conflict still feels unsettled and cannot find peace within himself. With the camera characteristically close, he is asked if he would seek revenge against the man who did this to him, he replies after a long moment of silence, "Me? God no say so." Yet God is not the centerpiece for tales of survival, access to water, education, hard work, prostitution, and fear of accused war criminal Charles Taylor. While filming, Taylor literally flew over in a helicopter on his way to jail in Freetown, which was terrifying for everyone being filmed at the time. His trial at The Hague should end this Fall, with the sentencing perhaps in 2010. Over two hundred at time survived the war in the belly of a bridge above the ocean. Kornetzky was the first outsider to see it. The core group of survivors breaks rocks beside the bridge for a meager living. "No stealing. No fighting. Righteousness. Together as one." It's a contemporary post war bohemia. In a long conversation between a broker and a woman with keen wit who hustles Whites when she can, to support her family, we find a treasure about hope, dreams, and optimism. "Corruption is so rife", we hear a journalist say, that everything goes to a few people, while the others suffer miserably. Then the camera descends into a shantytown by the ocean. God No Say So captures a spot in human history so dark that it demands a new order of our minds. Searching within so much confusion doesn’t find solid ground. The victims’ minds still turn, as do ours, with their outrageous reality. The criminal acts are enormous. Could our neighbors – our children - could we do this? Why is this happening to this good spirited people?

BOSCH: President Caught Between Empires

Director: Rene Fortunato.
The documentary presents the most important political and social events that occurred during the administration of the constitutional government with popular backing, headed by Juan Bosch, in the Dominican Republic, during the first seven months of the year 1963. The military coup d´etat that overthrew the Bosch government, the foreign policy of United States President John Kennedy, and relationship of the United States with members of the military who overthrew regimes throughout Latin America, are subjects that occupy a large part of this documentary, made entirely with original images and sounds from that era.
