  • Sonotoki

    • Authors: Amanda Belantara
      Abstract: This film takes inspiration from the work of Kon Wajiro,- an architect, ethnologist and sociologist who created detailed sketches of everyday life on the streets of Tokyo in the 1920s. Shot in Aomori City, Japan in the depths of winter, Sonotoki captures fleeting movements through the snowy streets as they play out before a static camera. Humans are made of generations of cycles; each leaving subtle indications that are part of an inexpressible whole.

  • Our Courtyard - Bai people of South West China

    • Authors: Frode Storaas, He Yuan Wang
      Abstract: This documentary opens the gate to a courtyard and the lives of the Yang family as they look into the past and towards the future for guidance on how to secure a home in post-reform China. Yang used to live with his two uncles in his ancestral courtyard home until the Land Reform swept the country in the 1950's. As a result of the collectivization that ensued, his uncles were assigned `landlord´ class status, stripped of their property rights and evicted. Because he enjoyed `middle peasant´ status, Yang was allowed to stay. However, he was force to share the Yang clan courtyard with three poor peasant families, and has been living with them ever since. Today in post-Reform China's market economy, property rights have been restored and many Chinese are seeking to better their living conditions. The aging Yang now has the opportunity to buy back a portion of his family courtyard. At the same time, Yang's son dreams of building a courtyard home by the lake. This documentary opens the gate to the Yang ancestral courtyard and sheds light on the lives and emotions of the family as they look into the past and towards the future for guidance on how to secure a home in which they and the future generations of Yangs can continue to prosper.

  • Sleeping Rough

    • Authors: Martin Gruber, Jochen Becker
      Abstract: "Sleeping Rough" was shot during the summer of 2001 among a group of homeless men and women in the city centre of Hamburg after six months of ethnographic fieldwork. While the homeless are often represented as outcasts of society, this film shows critical and self-reflexive people who master their lives in public with an undefeated spirit. The cohesion of the group provides the matrix through which individuals in varying stages of liminality can find solace and support. The camera offers a privileged view of daily routines and work as well as leisure time which is spent socialising in a public square equipped with a container for luggage. Intimately and sometimes with disenchanted frankness the protagonists reflect on the circumstances of their situation, between romance and tragedy, past disappointments and future ambition. More than 20 years after the production of the film, the situation of homeless people in Germany has not improved. The number of rough sleepers in Hamburg has increased from roughly 1000 in 2009 to almost 2000 in 2018. The city centre of Hamburg is still a highly contested space.

  • Alfred Melotu, The Funeral of a Paramount Chief

    • Authors: Rolf Erik Scott, Peter Ian Crawford, Trygve Tollefsen
      Abstract: Alfred Melotu is a Big Man and Paramouth Chief among the Melanesians in the Reef Islands group off, the Solomon Islands. In 1994 a film crew visited Alfred in order to plan a future film. Unfortunately, on the return in 1996 Alfred was on his deathbed suffering from mouth cancer. Nevertheless, he was still a Big Man. Alfred consequently allowed the film crew to record his deathbed and funeral in order to be remembered for the future. However, the film was also to be used as a documentation for his family in order to further secure his land and possessions from other Big Men. In other words, Alfred, used the film as a medium to try to further his power beyond his death.
