A Turning Tide in the life of Man

Les marées dans la vie des hommes (original title)


A film by Loic Jourdain

John O'Brien, a fisherman from the small island of Bo Finne in Ireland did not know he would embark on a long crusade when he initiated with the help of an insular group of international experts and NGOs, a European campaign to regain his ancestors right to fish. How could he have measured the magnitude of the task? Filmed for 8 years, the film tells how this man put himself, as "David against Goliath", in the heart of the new reform of the Common Fisheries in Brussels to try to understand and change the system that took everything from him. This is the story of a man, the story of a community, a country and all Europe.

SLOW

Slow (original title)


A film by Sascha Seifert

Underneath bushes and hedges, along alleys and fields, in the woods and on meadows, they roam around peacefully, in beauty, with dignity. Unimpressed by the speed of life around them. Always careful but also constantly ready for stunts beyond human sense of gravity. They glide, they climb, they dive, they enjoy. A meditative journey into the mystical world of those marvelous creatures popularly known - but yet ignored far too often - as snails and a beautiful & cinematic walking meditation. Slow depicts quite fittingly the life of snails. A peaceful slow documentary about life in nature; the embodiment of slowness, far away from mechanical clocks which have caused so much trouble that we now have to create events like Slow Art Day to remind us that we’re moving too fast.

MAN VS TRASH

SUPER TRASH (original title)


A film by Martin Esposito

Martin returns his childhood place. He has now been buried by a huge open dump.

Martin decides to settle and live in this world of garbage, punctuated by the forth back and forth dances of trucks and bulldozers leveling and discharging waste. For days and months, Martin will mark his place in an unbearable universe seemingly driving to madness. He feeds himself with the trash. He bathes into the river each daily, like a step back to the primitive world. He looks after animals trapped in the hellhole, and surfs on giant wave generated by the trash. Nothing looking for exposure such pointing fingers at one other, Martin simply tries, in this film, a desperate effort to make a metaphor for our world, minus the guilt. Martin won’t accept this universe that has been imposed, he wants to appropriate it, ingest and digest.

This until the final and permanent closure of the dump, where he will save the last seagull from poisoning.

Un film de Jean-Paul JAUD

From 2009 to 2011, under conditions of total secrecy, Professor Séralini and The *CRIIGEN lead an experience with unsuspected consequences. It’s the world’s longest-lasting experiment: the first independent study of a *GMO and the herbicide Roundup. The conclusions are appalling …

After the terrible accident at Chernobyl, the invisible radioactivity reappear en march 2011, with the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident. All over the world, 443 nuclear power plants are in activity.

GMO’s, NUCLEAR POWER: we use and accept those technologies without health or environmental independent tests. Are we all of us guinea-pigs now?
