FILM ON:

Seven years after the fall of Milosevic’s regime and the revolution on October 5th, 2000, Serbia is still a country largely isolated from the rest of the world where extreme right-wing parties are getting stronger every day. What is most worrying is the fact that the incidents caused by the ultra-rightist groups, made up mostly of very young people, have become public and more frequent following the year 2000. It is this very extremism that is the key topic of this film, and we tried to point ou... more

It is estimated that up to 140 million women and girls have undergone some form of female genital mutilation, FGM, otherwise known as female circumcision. FGM should not be viewed as an isolated practice. It occurs in 28 countries, and its justification is that it is an important initiation which reinforces virginity, chastity, purity, marriageability and fidelity, and in some African countries affects over 90% of the female population. This film, narrated by Meryl Streep, reports from four countrie... more

FILM ON:

Afghanistan is a country where day does not fade into night without news of bombings and killings, and we have certainly noticed that the Western media has always announced these events as terrorist attacks conducted by Islamic fundamentalists and extremists. A coincidental filming during a bloody event that left the country shocked for several months is a great impetus to look for the real roots of events of this ilk among the biggest tribe of this land, namely, the Pashtuns. This movie ha... more
