AT NIGHT I WALK
Sirah Foighel Brutmann, FR, 30 min.
Everything starts from the encounter between Helena and Françoise. Between them, about forty years and a wheelchair. In a cinematographic walk, they ask themselves how does falling lead them to live differently? The act of getting up becomes a cry of desire for life.
IS IT A KNIFE BECAUSE...
Helena Malak, BE, 26 min.
An uncompromising look at the ways in which parenthood and the process of filmmaking crush into each other. Through a collection of family videos, the film challenges the agency kids and grown-ups have on their image. While different forms of violence render visible and audible within the household — the police is outside the window.
