Films

  • #387

    Every day, more migrants die at sea. #387 is one of them. With exclusive access to their work in Italy and Greece, this film follows a team of forensic pathologists who are fighting to give these people back a name, a memory, a dignity. At their side, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is facing a new challenge: to find the families of the missing migrants, from Senegal to Afghanistan. Together they converge into the matrix of the search for identity, drawing us into a philosophical thriller.

  • All That I Am (formerly The Girl In The Mirror)

    The Girl in the Mirror is a coming-of-age story of Emilie (18) who is on her way into adult life after a childhood with fear, sexual abuse and her youth spent in different homes selected by child welfare authorities. The film offers an intimate insight into what it is like to get a grip on your future when your experiences so far in life have mainly been painful. Everybody around Emilie seemed to struggle trying to relate and support her. Now the public authorities are demanding Emilie to start work and participate in society but she is struggling to cope on the road to this new found freedom.
