Vote For Kibera

This film is clear proof that when a Czech documentarist has ambitions and isn’t afraid to venture out of his or her comfort zone, a unique spectacle can come of it. Vote for Kibera does a perfect job at depicting the essence of the Kibera slum, and through non-violent means it exposes audiences to this shanty town’s way of life with the help of a strong protagonist and highly sophisticated visuals. Poetic, raw, and above all authentic viewing.

OW Online tip

Požár v pralese a hasiči stojící v plamenech a snaží se ho uhasit. Všude je dým a plameny.

Incendios

Czech documentary filmmaker Martin Trabalík travelled to Bolivia to capture the efforts of volunteer firefighters to prevent the burning of the Chiquitano forest. Despite the efforts of environmentalists, this tropical dry forest is still suffering in the name of industrial and agricultural interests. If the film Incendios had an impact on you, you can contribute to the FCBC – Foundation for the Conservation of the Chiquitano Forest. Since 1999, this foundation tries to protect this tropical dry forest on many levels.

Journey to Utopia

Ecological grief has driven director Erlend and his family to make one radical decision – to move out of their comfortable cottage in Norway and relocate to Permatopia, Denmark’s newly established and super-sustainable eco-village. But slowly they come to grips with the fact that living together in harmony with the planet’s needs is certainly no cakewalk… Journey to Utopia is a complex spectacle thematising not just the positive aspects, but also the limitations of sustainable living as seen through the eyes of one family, who were perhaps all too enthusiastic in their search for utopia.
