Weird 2017, R: Fausto Montanari, 2 Min, OF

“Weird" is a short animated film about the diversity. It is a shout of a girl usual to be judged as weird and different. She expresses in the monologue her sufferance and her dream to make possible to delete the concept of weird. She thinks that in the end weirdness is only a point of view and that we are all the same. But sometime during her speech, she falls into the error to indicate something like weird because again Weirdness depend on each self and a personal perspective.

Home to roughly 200,000 refugees, and another 150,000 locals living nearby, getting enough fresh, clean water is one of the major struggles of daily life. In 2016, a team of Canadian geoscientists traveled there to try to find more sources of fresh water.

Darioush is an Iranian paperless person in Gothenburg facing his worst nightmare, as two Swedish police officers come knocking. He barely escapes and heads towards his employer to cash out his remaining salary. Later he needs help to work out a plan B and calls everyone in his contact list.

Only one person returns his call and offers him a hand; Ali, the human trafficker that served him his entry to Sweden in the first place. Will Darioush avoid the police hands of the state and once more go into hiding, or will the state representatives finally catch up with him and send him to his certain death abroad?


Testimonies of a Massacre: Tula Toli 2017, R: Shafiur Rahman, 20 Min, OmeU

Filming in the border areas between Myanmar and Bangladesh and also the Rohingya refugee camps, Shafiur Rahman encountered survivors from what is likely to be the worst massacre of the Rohingya crisis of 2017 - Tula Toli. The film shows distressing images from the border as well as harrowing interviews with refugees who describe mass killings, including the killing of children, rape, and the destruction of entire villages.

This film is the first documentary to discuss crucial evidence of pre-planning of the massacre on the part of the Myanmar military and officials designed to drive the Rohingya from their ancestral land. The crisis itself has resulted in well over half a million people, mainly children, fleeing their homes and becoming refugees.
