GAME OVER

Alba Sotorra, 78/52 min. (Prod : Gaia audiovisuals, ES)

How far can one take this guns fantasies? 

Djalal was obsessed with war games before he could walk. He was raised as an only child in a middle class Spanish family with his parents indulging his every whim. He got all sorts of toy guns with which to play the soldier and as he grew up, his games became more and more sophisticated. He started to film himself reenacting military operations, and to upload his videos in Youtube, creating a cyber identity, Lord_Sex, with thousands of followers. As he followed this dream to the extreme, he went to the Afghan front as sniper. But the war is not as exciting as in the movies. Djalal returned to his parents home disenchanted, to realize that nothing is the same. The economic crisis stroked his family and he is forced to take action. The game is over and he needs to find his own place in the real world.

17 NON REQUIRED INDIANS


17 NOT REQUIRED INDIANS

Soniya Kirpalani, 72/52 min. (Prod: Sprocket Science, UAE) 

17 death penalties for the murder of one man !

The film reveals the heartbreaking story of 17 Men on death row and the struggle of their families to secure their release. Through this we reveal the very universal challenge of global migration, migrant labor rights and representation, especially in context with the GCC and Asia.  In a strange twist of events, Indian Embassy stops their defense lawyers from putting in evidence. Derailing an important case, to support a political aspirant’s bid to claim; they broker a ‘Blood Money Compromise’ buying justice for money. This wins him media attention in an election year; but it marks the men as ‘Murders’. Furthermore the politicians ‘fine’ these 17 men and their families. Returning to India, they question their freedom ‘Why did the Embassy’s lawyers NOT put proof of our innocence? Why were we compromised by our own protectors? This question lingers… Can the migrants ever get freedom between a complex and corrupt systems?
