Films

  • Grown Ups

    Grown Ups follows a group of adults aged between 40 and 50 who have Downs Syndrome. Many of them have never lived independently, and as their parents grow old and infirm, they decide they are tired of being treated like children.

  • Nueva Venecia

    Nueva Venecia is a fishing community based in the middle of Colombia’s biggest lake, which bears the scars of the country’s internal conflict. But residents find an outlet through their shared passion for football, and work tirelessly to prevent the pitch – and their community – from being swallowed up by the surrounding water.

  • Quipu

    Quipu tells the story of Esperanza, who is fighting for justice after being sterilised against her wishes 16 years ago. Esperanza is just one of 300,000 women and 20,000 men who were sterilised during the 1995-2000 Fujimori government, as part of a government policy that was promoted aggressively in rural, impoverished, and indigenous communities. After extensive investigations by Amnesty International, it is now well known that many women were coerced into the procedure or did not give consent.

  • Sumercé

    Sumercé follows the stories of four Colombian campesinos of different generations on the frontline of the struggle against mining, which is endangering the biodiversity of the unique paramo Andean ecosystems and the existence of thousands of rural communities located in areas where mining corporations want to operate. Many of those resisting the advance of the mines have been killed.
