Two post-war migrants look back
LIVED LIFE: Two short Austrian documentaries from Diagonale, the Austrian Film Film Festival, offer varied glimpses into the life and experiences of older post-war migrants in the capital Vienna.
HAITI / VOODOO: A young Haitian named Britis filmed one of the most notable documentaries recently. But it's only halfway into the movie that even the most vigilant viewer discovers who - or what - the
abuse of power:
Criminal justice in Northern Ireland and Spanish abuse of power in the Basque Country were the subject of two of the Scottish Documentary Institute's debut films during the Bridging the Gap program this year.
BETWEEN THE FORMAT: Unfortunately, the medium-length film is often overlooked. With his new works, directors Jean-Charles Hue and Ivan Marković each prove in their own right that the format has more than enough weight.
ROTTERDAM FILM FESTIVAL: This year's film festival unveiled several documentaries and short films, including Above Us Only Sky and Pelourinho: They Don't Really Care About Us, which turned out to be a rough staple of a movie.
Two newcomers stood out during this year's Underdox festival in Munich: Sec Rouge - one of 2018's most striking, perfect and beautiful films - and the innovative and delicious 48 minute film Accession.
Romania is struggling with population decline and emigration. The film scene in the country, on the other hand, is both dynamic and growing, something this year's Transilvania International Film Festival highlighted.
