(FR: Coming Out)

Not even a second. Just a few stammered words. Again I can feel this long forgotten fear. Violent, tenacious. In front of my computer screen, I have just discovered this video made by a young teenager. He is filming himself, soon he will tell his grandmother he is gay. He calls. The loudspeaker is on. One ring, two, three. The old lady picks up, the teenager breaks down.

Through a montage of compelling and breathtaking videos posted on the Internet by young gays, bis, lesbians or transexuals, Out makes us experience from within the groundbreaking moment of their coming out –after which their intimate and social life shall be forever changed.

DR Congo, 2018. The long awaited presidential elections trigger hopes and debates all over the country. In the countryside, community radios struggle to cover the turmoil despite increasing political unrest, censorship and depletion of energy resources. When in a village lost in the palm fields a forgotten palm oil Diesel engine is found, all the farmers are asked to unite to save their local radio. A resounding tale about freedom of expression, political awareness and the frailty of democracy.

Palestinian Women
by Mariette Auvray

10 x 10’ - In development
Arabic, Hebrew, English







From Jerusalem to Haifa, stopping by Acre, Bethleem, Hebron and Ramallah, we travel across Israel and the West Bank to meet with Palestinian women shaping the cultural landscape. These activists, feminists, artists... tell us about their culture and identity in a war- torn territory. The series offers a dive into the lives of these young women and thus sheds light on this generation of girls, who are striving to build a future in a divided and much disputed country.

In the wake of the presidential election, rages the battle for Congress. All over the country, a new kind of candidates runs under the ‘En Marche !’ banner, the movement created only a year ago by new president-elect Emmanuel Macron. Half of these wannabe representatives come from civil society. The documentary focuses on the campaign of Marion Buchet, a former fighter pilot running for MP in a forlorn industrial area, in the East of France. The National Front scored locally in the first round of the national vote. Is Marion going to win this new battle?
