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' 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.

(un)usual

In this documentary dance film we see the world through the eyes of 13 children, who move in space and in their thoughts. Through workshops of practical philosophy and contemporary dance a group of young people from a Brussels primary school explored
the relation between thinking, intuition and movement. By turns funny and thought provoking, we watch them as they are discovering (un)usual ways of dancing and thinking.
