"From local to global.. and back again.."

A French family unexpectedly arrives in a remote, abandoned village of Serbia to grow grapes and produce wine. They believe they have discovered a promised land, one of the top five wine regions in Europe, as it proved to be back in the past. But they met only old people, with old habits and distrust. Back in France, they faced another challenge -- how to convince wine connoisseurs that a "grand" wine can originate from an unknown troubled region? The Promise – a tale of passion and hope, and a revealing story of migration and globalization.

Rwanda women's power and drive to social change ...

The story of Godelieve and Florida, hutu and tusti. Despite their divided histories, these women are struggling for a common goal: equal rights, reconciliation, and political empowerment for women. We follow Godelieve and Florida organizing selfIempowerment trainings for women to confront patriarchal structures; to the rural area, where the new generation of children born out of rape are redefining their identities, facing a life shoulder to shoulder with the murderers of their families, their fathers. And where more and more women get organized to break the silence and speak out.

Apostolos Karakasis (52'/90', Minimal Films, GR)

Self-management against despair

When a building material factory in Thessaloniki, closed down three years ago, its 70 employees faced the risk of never finding work again. After a year of unsuccessful efforts to reopen the factory Makis , the main character, suggested they occupied the factory and run it themselves : “White collar” workers would have nothing to do with it. The 20 production workers, however, unanimously signed a manifesto declaring their will to run the factory as a workers’ cooperative under the principles of absolute equality and direct democracy. On the ruins of Europe’s most wrecked economy, an egalitarian utopia was being born. A year after the occupation, internal conflicts rise. Not everyone shares the same enthusiasm in this enterprise, not everyone contributes equally.

Back to the roots, a solution to modern life and economy crisis ?


Since the start of the crisis in Greece, a growing number of young unemployed Athenians are moving to the countryside, hoping to change their lives for the better. The film follows 35-y-old Theodoris, as he settles on the remote island of Ikaria. There, he discovers a society with a unique culture of autonomy and cooperation, and people who live not only better, but longer than everyone else- in one of the world’s few “blue zones” where inhabitants enjoy extraordinary longevity. Director Nikos Dayandas goes in search of the Ikarian secret, discovering how the islanders’ radically different lives are increasingly relevant to us in times of economic and social upheaval.

Isolated: the world's most populated island, in the Caribean sea    

In the Colombian Caribbean, there is a small artificial islet made by African descent fisherman that established in the region 160 years ago. They built the islet little by little in the middle of the ocean, using a coral reef as ground base and accumulating garbage, seashell, coral, and debris. Today, the islet has the size of half a block and is home for almost 600 people. There are no policemen, priests, doctors or traces of the Colombian armed conflict in this highly populated place; there are 97 houses where 18 families live, and a small piazza with a cross in the middle in honor of the islet’s name: Santa Cruz del Islote (Holy Cross of the Islet).

Nowadays, regular routine live in the islet is changing because of new technologies and telecommunications. Modern and foreign habits are challenging the local and ancestral traditions that were practiced year after year. However, this cultural swift has brought ecological, political and social awareness.
