KAJARYA

2013 | FictiON | 108′ | IN  | vo HI st Fr Nl Eng

with: Nasir Ali, Manoy Bakshi, Shashi Bhushan

“Kajarya”” is a film about the force of circumstances and how they make people who they are and that it is only our personal choices that actually define the outcome of the circumstances. Set against two backdrops, New Delhi and a village in Haryana, the protagonist murders unwanted girl infants in the garb of religion. Kajarya and Meera are two absolutely different women from two different worlds. Kajarya is an uneducated woman who lives in an Indian village. Meera, an educated, modern woman who lives alone in a city.

Meera is a global citizen. She could be living anywhere in the world. Ordinarily, the lives of these two women should never have crossed. But circumstances bring the two together and lock them in to an orbit that neither can break out of. Like planets they are caught in each other’s energy field almost without their willing. At another level, Kajarya and Meera’s circumstances are defined by the time and place of their birth. And yet the society they live in judges them for their actions. And so the film also looks at the deep societal hypocrisy that collectively supports something heinous and ugly and pushes everything under the carpet. And then stands on judgement of those who have been forced in to positions they did not really want.”

 

 quote

“Kajarya is a metaphor for that ugly side of society that everyone wants to hide.”

Madhureeta Anand.

In July 2012, Libyans lived their first democratic national elections, after 42 years of Gaddafi’s dictatorship, 6 months of Civil War and more than 20.000 dead. 3.702 candidates ran for the Libyan National Congress. For the very first time, women could also be part of it. 625 took their chance. «Pionneers» reveals a country in an historical moment, through the struggle of two of these women. Myriam El-Tayab took part in the revolution from the very beginning. She was pregnant by then, but active on the front line of the war, and even fought against her own family. By running for elections in the Tripoli area, she wanted to build a country where Gaddafi’s supporters would live together, in peace with revolutionaries. Layla El-Sounoussi went up and down the 400 km desert’s of the Mourzouk region, in south-east of Lybia, in order to campaign in villages, talking to men when they go out from the Mosq, explaining them what elections and democracy are about. She struggled for women to have a space in politics. Within the Libyan people, Myriam and Layla, navigate through the unknown territories of democracy, in asociety that never allowed women to be the leaders.

THE RICE BOMBER 

2014 | Fiction | 80′ | TAI  | vo Ch st Fr Nl

Set during an economically turbulent period in Taiwan’s recent history, the film follows the small town boy from his life on a rice farm in the central Changhua region, to the military service that taught his the tricks of his trade and finally to full blown agitator trying to bring attention to the plight of the island’s farmers. As Taiwan enters the WTO and struggles beneath the burden of a newly globalized food supply, Yang Rumen (Huang Chien-Wei) transforms into an advocate for local farmers. Progressing from letters to the editor, to petitions at government agencies and finally his renowned rice bombs, Rumen (in reality now a major proponent and practitioner of organic farming after 7 years in prison) doesn’t want to hurt anybody, one of the reasons his 17 bombs (which spray rice like buckshot) are planted in reasonably empty spots. That’s not the case of his likeminded friend Troublemaker (Nikki Hsieh), a rich gangster’s daughter who prefers more militant action. (Elizabeth Kerr, the Hollywood Reporter)

TOMORROW

2014 | Fiction | 70′ | FR  |  vo Fr

In order to cure their respective procrastination, a film director, an actor and a musician, go on a pilgrimage to Tunisia to see the cave settings in Matmata where George Lucas shot several scenes of « Star Wars ». As they arrive, they look for an anti-procrastination ritual which would help them to finally get back into action…This is alternative cinema: poor but free.

TOMORROW has been shot with a very small camera, a computer and very limited resources. This means no technical crew, just me and the actors… TOMORROW could not have been made differently; its creation process, very open and based on improvisation in every level, was incompatible with the ways of film industry.
