Conflicts

DURATION: 56 min.

It has been called the “Rebellion of Dignity”. The spark that was set off by the self-immolation of a 26-year-old in a Tunisian provincial town spread like fire in the entire country. The cry of the Tunisians who demanded freedom and fought for their right to work shook the entire world and gave, once again, a historic role to optimism. Ben Ali, the once almighty dictator, fled the country and his corrupt regime was unmasked. The first revolution of the 21st century is a fact and the Arab world will never be the same again.

“29 Days” goes back to the beginning, to the roots of the “Arab spring”. Through the soul-stirring testimonies of those who were in the middle of it and the rich archive that they salvaged from the period of the uprising, the documentary presents the chronicle of the 29 days that changed the course of history.

Fur

DURATION: 60 min.

Since 2003 Arab paramilitaries known as ‘Janjaweed', along with the Sudanese army, have been regularly conducting raids against revolted African tribes in the Darfur province, in the west part of Sudan. So far more than 2.2 million people have been dislocated from their villages and have become refugees and more than 300.000 people have been murdered. Yorgos Avgeropoulos records - in some cases ‘legally', in others ‘illegally'- death and persecution in the context of a relentless civil war. A war that began in the form of a small scale conflict over some land and water, as a consequence of climate change. ‘Aided' by the country's dictator, President Bashir, it has turned out to be one of the most savage of today's wars; a tragedy that, while unfolding right before the eyes of the international community, seems to be well hidden behind the desert dust...

Taliban_-_Poster_EN

DURATION: 58 min.

The "revival of the Taliban" is a fact. And Pakistan is the new centre of developments in Central Asia, for it is from its grounds that the new waves of fighters with the black turbans, and their continuous attacks, unexpectedly shift the geopolitical map of Central Asia, as well as the international balances.

The hideout and base of operations of the "new Taliban" is located in the rough and inaccessible mountains of the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. Not only western people, but even the authorities of Pakistan themselves are incapable of reaching Waziristan, the inaccessible region of the Pashtun Tribal Areas. The creators of this astonishing documentary managed to get remarkable access.
