One Way or Another
Film as revolution, film as feminism, film as a portrait of political change and contradictions.
Porno misery existed before this film, but no one noticed till Mayolo and Ospina delivered this openly critical, non-cynical fiction-documentary about First World exploitation of Third World countries through cinema.
Fuego en Castilla
Cinema as an ongoing powerful machine to invent itself and to portray the past, memories, the future of art and history.
The sound of colonialism, the madness of power and control.
No Home Movie
A film about a mother and a daughter. A film about love, distances, letters and sad farewells.
Meshes of the Afternoon
David Lynch knows it: this film is everything. New forms, camera as a creative tool, the beginning.
À PROPOS DE NICE
Shot and counter-shot. Political editing, candid cameras, sense of humour. Nice as the centre of class struggle.
La Petite Vendeuse de 'Soleil'
Second part of an unfinished trilogy, The Little Girl Who Sold the Sun is a hymn to brave people in post-colonial Senegal or, as the filmmaker stated, a “hymn to the courage of street children”.
Animation as imagination, cinema as a cry for a dying world.
BABY I WILL MAKE YOU SWEAT REEL 1 and 2
Sex, tapes and female liberation. A sweat film about race, love, politics and heat.
