Taste of Hope

In 2010, Unilever announced the closing of the profitable Fralib tea processing and packaging plant in the South of France. After 1336 days of resistance, the workers celebrated their victory against the giant multinational and became owners of the factory. Now, with the take-over of the company and production under workers’ control, a new struggle has begun. Can this alternative project be viable within an oversaturated, highly competitive market?

Ouaga Girls

In a country with youth unemployment at 52 percent, jobs are a hot issue. The young girls at a mechanics school in Burkina Faso’s capital Ouagadougou are right in the middle of a crucial point in life when their dreams, hopes and courage are confronted with opinions, fears and society’s expectations of what a woman should be. Using interesting narrative solutions, Theresa Traore Dahlberg depicts their last school years and at the same time succeeds in showing the country’s violent past and present.

Nisman - 6 Part Series

Fed for years with information by Stiuso, a spy with close links to the CIA, prosecutor Nisman is ready to testify in the Argentinian Congress against president Cristina Kirchner. He is accusing her of negotiating the impunity of Iranians in the Buenos Aires’ 1994 AMIA bombing, the worst terrorist attack in the West before 9/11. The night before, however, Nisman is found dead in his bathroom with a single shot to the head. Murder or suicide? The intrigue is endless, and the stakes are high.

Let It Burn

Downtown São Paulo, Brazil. An Apartment Building: 7 floors, 28 rooms, 107 residents who all have in common the addiction to crack. Over the course of several months, life in a social housing project - part of a city hall “damage reduction” program about to be extinguished - is revealed. Characters on a hallucinated hunt for bonding, and fighting passionately for life, can be seen as the camera drifts through hallways, rooms, elevators, stairs; day and night. In this claustrophobic place, anything can happen.
