How can enough food be produced for 10 billion people? Two camps claim to know the answer. One of them is for industrial farming, which relies on ultra-efficient mass production and which is continuing to expand globally. The other supports organic and traditional agriculture. The film shows the global interactions in agriculture by interviewing people involved in the key areas of production: seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, animal feed production, animal husbandry, wholesale and retail. We’re all active consumers – and 10 Billion – what will we eat tomorrow? provides a sound basis helping us decide how to act.

Hur kan tillräckligt mycket mat produceras för 10 miljarder människor? Industriell odling som förlitar sig på ultraeffektiv massproduktion står mot organiskt traditionell jordbruk. Filmen visar det globala samspelet inom jordbruk genom intervjuer med experter inom områdena.

Winner of Best Human Rights Documentary at Galway Film Fleadh 2014 ‘African Pride’ shares the stories of lesbian women in South Africa’s townships who are meeting homophobic violence with their visibility.

South Africa’s Constitution was the first in the world to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. But rights belie the reality for many. Homophobia has found violent expression in assaults, rape and murders. In South African townships lesbian women are frequently the targets of some of the most brutal of these attacks; their sexuality condemned as un-African, un-Christian and unacceptable. However there is a growing movement of people who are responding to this violence and prejudice by taking to the streets. They hold memorials. They protest. They celebrate Pride in their townships. These demonstrations are noisy, colourful and courageous and they have become impossible to ignore. Each person bearing a banner has their own reason to be visible and it is through these stories that “African Pride’ explores this determined, relentless and colourful movement.

Stories of lesbian women in South Africa’s townships who are meeting homophobic violence with their visibility. South Africa’s Constitution was the first in the world to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. But rights believe the reality for many. Homophobia has found violent expression in assaults.

Den etablerade homofobin i Sydafrika har fått ett våldsamt uttryck i form av mord och våldtäkter, och det är framförallt lesbiska kvinnor som blir offer då deras sexuella läggning ses som oafrikanskt och okristligt. Det finns dock en växande rörelse som kämpar aktivt mot våldet och diskrimineringen. Med en färgsprakande ihärdighet håller ‘African Pride’ i minnesstunder, demonstrationer, och parader som inne går att missa.

HOMMELESS_KEYPIC_horizontal
From all outside appearances, Mark Reay seems to have the glamorous New York City life that many would envy. Handsome and always impeccably dressed, the charismatic former male model works as a fashion photographer, appears in movies and attends the best parties. When he leaves those events, however, he heads to the East Village— not to an overpriced loft, but to a hidden corner of a rooftop to sleep each night. Thomas Wirthenson exposes the dark underbelly of the American Dream in an often-merciless city.

Vid första glans ser Mark ut att leva det glamorösa New York-livet som alla drömmer om. Den före detta modellen är stilig, välklädd, jobbar som modellfotograf, är med i filmer och går på de bästa festerna. Men när han åker hem från festerna och lyxlivet sover han blott i ett gömt krypin under taket på ett hus. Thomas Wirthenson avslöjar den mörka sidan av den amerikanska drömmen.

In the 70s the Greenlandic rock band Sumé released three albums that changed Greenland’s history forever. Sumé’s political songs were the first to be recorded in the Greenlandic language – a language that prior to Sumé didn’t have words for “oppression” or “revolution”. They influenced an era, boosting the political process of establishing Greenland’s Home Rule Government and the country’s first uprising against the Danish colonial powers.

På 70-talet släppte ett rockband från Grönland tre album som kom att ändra Grönlands historia för alltid. Bandet hette Sumé och deras sånger inspirerade en era av politiskt uppror mot den Danska kolonialmakten.
