Republic of Silence

Twelve years in the making, Republic of Silence bears witness to a tragedy on an epic scale, accompanied by an ever-expanding mosaic of fragile, deeply embedded moments from Diana El Jeiroudi’s life, beginning with the memory from the age of seven when her father gives her a camera, right up to the present day.

"A contemplative journey from silence into words, from blindness into seeing, and of how cinema made it possible and saved their lives." - Venice Film Festival

Radio Silence

Incorruptible journalist and news anchor Carmen Aristegui is one of the few voices in Mexico with the courage to speak the truth, becoming one of 
the most dangerous voices in the eyes of the government. Millions of people listen to her when she draws attention to maladministration and misinformation on the radio or television. Following the unveiling of a corruption scandal involving the president, Carmen is fired from the radio station where she works, and 200,000 people take to the streets in protest, calling for her re-instatement. Refusing to be intimidated, Carmen assembles a team of investigative journalists and launches her own news platform, continuing the fight against an authoritarian and corrupt political system.

"This powerful portrait of an uncommonly courageous and tenacious woman makes it very clear what you get when the freedom of the press is crushed: no rule of law and a crumbling democracy." - IDFA

Citizen Nobel

The 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry transforms Jacques Dubochet’s life. Passing from the shadows to the light, he is solicited from all sides. What can he do with this voice, which is now being heard by everyone? How to define the struggles to be fought? How to become a “Citizen Nobel”, with the objective of assuming responsibility as a researcher and member of the human community? A speech by Greta Thunberg turns everything upside down…

"an invigorating portrait of one of Europe’s most distinguished scientists" - The Guardian

Speak So I Can See You

Conjuring reality and wonder, 'Speak so I Can See You' takes us to a seemingly different era, by exploring the world of Radio Belgrade. One of Europe’s oldest radio stations and a true institution of the city, the station still broadcasts original programming and helps keep history, culture and critical thought, as well as ever- relevant questions about ourselves and the world, from slipping out of memory and mind.

"broadcasting as a gateway into another dimension" - The Guardian


Within unfolds in Geneva, in the district around the Vernets barracks. It delves into the spaces of life and encounters with its inhabitants. These domestic chronicles evolve between the military barracks at the edge of the blocks of flats and the insane asylum which had occupied the space in the past. Through these chronicles and the history of the place, the question arises for each spectator: what is my place within?

"Never closed in on itself...constantly opens up to others to tell the story of singular intimacy as much as the micro-history of a city." - Visions du Reel
