America Is Waiting


Armed only with a camera and a microphone, the filmmaker Georg Koszulinski decides to document what, according to him, is the most important day in the America’s contemporary history: the inauguration of Donald Trump as president of the United States.

Placed to the side of a huge mass that opposes his new role as president, the documentary shows a series of testimonies from those who do not feel represented by the nationalist and racist attitudes of the tycoon. Many of them are immigrants, African Americans and members of the LGBTI community.

Do We belong?


Only a few weeks after Trump was inaugurated as president, a 32-year-old Indian man was killed in a bar in Olathe, Kansas, in what was a serious hate crime.

The nonsense of the murder has left Sunayana, his widow, in a limbo in which she struggles to continue her life in a country that is increasingly distant from herself.

This short documentary is an approximation to that feeling of uprooting and lack of identity that leaves the trail of blind xenophobia that now is seeing its biggest rise.

Citizen Juling


In this documentary, three filmmakers travel around the three provinces of southern Thailand, an increasingly intolerant country among their religious groups.

The trigger for this trip was the murder of Juling, a Buddhist school teacher, a hate crime that shocked the country.

The film is an open reflection that gives voice to the inhabitants of the region, testimonies that speak of the despotism of the repressive forces of the State, of a growing desolation and subsequent anger that grows among the population.
