Today, stem cells are virtually presented as a panache, a “miraculous” biological material of the human body which can cure a great number of diseases, from leukemia to Altzheimer's disease. Big enterprises in most countries of the world are encouraging parents to privately store their children’s stem cells, and pay so as to ensure their future as well as that of the family. Where is the line between wishful thinking and reality drawn?

"Control oil and you control nations. Control food and you control the people!"

Henry Kissinger 1974

A handful of multinational companies have managed to control the "heart" of the food we put on our table everyday: The very seed and, therefore, global agricultural production. Brokers in the developed world gamble with food, raising and lowering prices, playing with the fundamental right of millions of people to access food. Meanwhile, almost a billion people on this planet are undernourished and 25,000 die of hunger each day. Could it be that the Earth can no longer feed its population?

The evidence proves otherwise! The food crisis, as it will go down in history, occurs at a time when the planet is producing more food than ever. Filmed in India and the USA, "Dying in abundance" unfolds the absurd before our eyes, the interconnections of a system in which, while there is enough food, it is so expensive the poor cannot afford it.

Plain_Old_Greed_-_Poster_EN

DURATION: 58 min.

"Plain Old Greed", Exandas new documentary film, is an "economic thriller" or, rather, a social horror movie which is timelier than ever. Through the saddening stories of those who lose their homes because of the savage bank raid emerges the famous "housing crisis" which torments the US economy and causes huge damage at a global level. However, what is more important is the unveiling of the logic of modern globalized economy and its "secret mechanisms". In other words, the money market's new way of making money... out of thin air!

Showdown_-_Poster_EN

DURATION: 57 min.

The Arctic Ocean spreads across 14 million square kilometers and conceals 25% of the global oil and natural gas reserves. As the ices melt, bays, marine areas and islands that had been long forgotten suddenly find themselves in the spotlight of the international agenda.

Five arctic states, Russia, Canada, Norway, Denmark and the US, lay claim to a piece of the Arctic Pole and, of course, to the largest share of the treasure. This is a new-age western film on the Wild North, which explores the economic and geostrategic facts of the Great Arctic Game that has just begun.
