SAINTS

The tiny island of Saint Helena is so remote and isolated that it was used to imprison the serial escaper Napoleon Bonaparte. Even today it lies a five-day boat journey from the nearest mainland. But life on this remote British Outpost will soon be changed for good with the arrival of an international airport. As the construction of the airport begins, the Saints, as they are known, wonder how their lives will change as the high-end eco-tourists start to arrive. An ode to an island that for many years lay forgotten in the South Atlantic Ocean. A cinematic memory journey to a place that feels as familiar as it does outlandish.

LADA

A movie about an iconic vehicle and a few of it's last remaining drivers, 'LADA' takes you on a Russian journey. The film explores people's affinity to a Russian car that stereotypically is considered as one of the worst in the world. A humorous and intimate story told from behind the steering wheel. 'LADA' was part of the Russian film making experience: Cinetrain. Seven filmmakers embarked on a journey through Russia each making their own short film about a different Russian stereotype. LADA was shot in different cars while travelling from Murmansk (in the Arctic) to Siberia.

       
     
Movements

A contemporary dance choreographer and a practical philosopher team up with a group of twelve year olds at an inner city school in Brussels to create a short dance piece. Together they embark on a journey where experimentation with movement and thought lie at the heart of their creation. Two worlds collide as the project evolves. Adolescence looms within the group and affects both the process and the final show. “Movements” is a poignant and at times comical portrait of a dance project that reveals the emotions and challenges of growing up.
