WIND OF CHANGE
Kenya, Norway 2012 40'
Directed by: Julia Dahr
The portrait of a peasant family in Kenya in March when in the past there would be heavy rainfall. The head of the family Kisilu confides his anguish to the camera as in a dairy. We live day after day waiting for the rain, the slow growth of the shoots in his millet field. An intimate and touching view of the daily struggle against climate change.

VOLTA À TERRA
Portugal, Switzerland, France 2014 78'
Directed by: João Pedro Plácido
Four seasons in Uz, in the Portuguese countryside. The life of the small community follows the rhythm of nature, that also sustains their livelihood. Old Antonio was a migrant, who has now come back to Uz. He is preparing the village feast. Daniel is a young shepherd who dreams of love. Perhaps he will find it at the feast. Volta à terra is the film director’s tribute to his native land and a forgotten lifestyle.
