    That Which I Love Destroys Me is a unique and powerful film by director Ric Roman Waugh.

  • Isis, Tomorrow. The Lost Souls of Mosul
    Isis, Tomorrow. The Lost Souls of Mosul | Director: Francesca Mannocchi   Alessio Romenzi  
    Year of production: 2018 | Country of production: Germany, Italy | Language: Arabic (with full English subtitles available)

    Isis, Tomorrow follows the destiny of the surviving families of the fighters in the complexity of the post-war period, a post-war time of marginalisation and stigma, in which battle blood leaves room for daily revenge and retaliation, for violence as the only response to violence.

  • The Cleaners
    The Cleaners | Director: Moritz Riesewieck, Hans Block  
    Year of production: 2018 | Country of production: Brazil, Germany | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Enter a hidden third world shadow industry of digital cleaning, where the Internet rids itself of what it doesn’t like: violence, pornography and political content. Here we meet five “digital scavengers” among thousands of people outsourced from Silicon Valley whose job is to delete “inappropriate” content off of the net. In a parallel struggle, we meet people around the globe whose lives are dramatically affected by online censorship. A typical “cleaner” must observe and rate thousands of often deeply disturbing images and videos every day, leading to lasting psychological impacts.

  • Allah in Europe
    Allah in Europe | Director: Johannes Bucher   Jan Leyers  
    Year of production: 2018 | Country of production: Belgium | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    What is the future of Islam in Europe? How hopeful can we be of an European, enlightened version of Islam? Will it be possible to overcome the Europeans’ distrust of Islam? Jan Leyers goes in search of answers. He heads off to Sarajevo, Budapest, Vienna, Hamburg, Paris, London, Copenhagen and Malmö. He listens to the voice of experts and the word on the street and talks with religious men and women, with ex-believers and new converts. What do they hope for and what are their concerns? In this series, Jan stays true to his style: nuanced and respectful, without shying away from controversy.

  • The 50 Year Argument
    The 50 Year Argument | Director: Martin Scorsese   David Tedeschi  
    Year of production: 2014 | Country of production: Japan, United Kingdom, USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Acclaimed filmmaker Martin Scorsese and longtime documentary collaborator David Tedeschi ride the waves of literary, political, and cultural history as charted by the influential publication, The New York Review of Books, America’s leading journal of ideas for over 50 years. This provocative film explores the power of ideas in shaping history. The film weaves rarely seen archival footage of cultural icons, newly filmed interviews with many of the Review’s current contributors with original footage reflecting the humming, restless energy of the paper’s brilliant and charismatic editor Robert Silvers at work in the Review’s West Village offices.

  • Cartel Land
    Cartel Land | Director: Matthew Heineman  
    Year of production: 2015 | Country of production: Mexico, USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    In this Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary, director Matthew Heineman and executive producer Kathryn Bigelow (“The Hurt Locker”, “Zero Dark Thirty”) gain unprecedented, on-the-ground access to the riveting stories of two modern-day vigilante groups and their shared enemy – the murderous Mexican drug cartels.

  • The Islands and the Whales
    The Islands and the Whales | Director: Mike Day  
    Year of production: 2016 | Country of production: Denmark, United Kingdom | Language: Danish, English (with full English subtitles available)

    The whale hunters of the Faroe Islands believe that hunting is vital to their way of life, but when a local professor makes a grim discovery about the effects of marine pollution, environmental changes threaten their way of life forever. As the islanders come to terms with the health revelations, they face increasing pressure from the outside world to stop the whale hunts.

  • Far from the Tree
    Far from the Tree | Director: Rachel Dretzin  
    Year of production: 2018 | Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    FAR FROM THE TREE follows families meeting extraordinary challenges through love, empathy, and understanding. This life-affirming documentary encourages us to cherish loved ones for all they are, not who they might have been. Based on Andrew Solomon’s award-winning, critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling non-fiction book “Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity.”

  • Life Is Sacred
    Life Is Sacred | Director: Andreas Dalsgaard  
    Year of production: 2014 | Country of production: Denmark | Language: Spanish (with full English subtitles available)

    Violence is a fact of everyday life in Colombia, where the drug cartels have kept the country in an armed conflict for decades, and where almost all families have lost a loved one.
    The unorthodox presidential candidate Antanas Mockus does all he can to reverse the vicious circle with an imaginative and positive election campaign. His idealism is both his strength and his weakness in a corrupt political system, where the people have lost faith in being able to make a difference.
    An inspiring man, and an inspiring story, whose points are relevant far beyond Colombia’s borders.

  • Reporters Against Power
    Reporters Against Power | Director: Kees Schaap  
    Year of production: 2016 | Country of production: Netherlands | Language: Burmese, Chinese, Dutch, English, Russian, Spanish, Turkish (with full English subtitles available)

    When powerful governments don’t want to be controlled, journalists become weapons against dictatorship and injustice. In their plight for truth, their pens become swords. Journalist Fidan Ekiz travels to Columbia, Turkey, Uganda, Russia, Myanmar and Hong Kong to speak to the people committed to reporting on the society around them, despite the considerable risks that this involves. In this six-part series, Ekiz explores how journalists can make a profound difference, whilst facing threats both to their own personal safety and to the concept of Truth itself.
