Two men measure the heights of pine trees. A woman listens to what the trees are saying. The children of the village set up the camp.  A cloud of digital dots reveals the forest. The pines have said that we can ask. They always called this place “Paraíso”. Machines will come soon.

In 2018, a group of filmmakers, calling themselves THE MOTIONLESS, embarks on an essay film about a hypothetical stillness syndrome in the Republic of Colombia. For this purpose, they invite Luis Ospina, master of the Colombian documentary, the presidential candidate Gustavo Petro, and writer Juan Gabriel Vásquez to give them clues with which to delve into the history, geography and idiosyncrasy of Colombia, a country that, paradoxically, is not motionless at all. For unknown reasons, the project is never finished.

Maka Gogaladze

2The fast and radical changes brought by the collapse of the Soviet Union in my city (Tbilisi, capital of Georgia) were followed by a fire at my home. All my memories vanishing away led me to alienation. Carrying my camera and going through the burned remains of my home-place, through the old spaces around my neighborhood, through everything that refers to my childhood and survived, I try to bring together the artifacts of my personal history and preserve my memory, which reflects the collective emotional memory of Georgia”, Maka Gogaladze.

A documentary about Margot Dias (Germany, 1908 – Portugal, 2001), an ethnologist who shot between 1958-61 among the Makonde tribe, at Mueda, Mozambique. The film is an inner journey that will gradually unravel the circumstances in which these original filming were made, during the period of Portuguese domination of Mozambique, based on Margot Dias’ unpublished diary and other texts and sounds, from archives related to the colonial period. But it’s also these materials’ confrontation with the people we are meeting on the trip to Mozambique, to whom we want to return part of its history.

Roser Corella 

The film chronicles the dire reality of foreign domestic workers in Middle Eastern countries such as Lebanon. By combining a multitude of perspectives, it offers intimate insights into the private lives of employers, agents and maids. From the legal framework that creates a structure of power and control that is conducive to corruption and abuse, analysing the architectural patterns of the city founded on racism, to the private sphere of the house that serves to reproduce a patriarchal system that discriminates against Lebanese women and which in turn undermines the rights of foreign domestic workers in the household. Exposing modern forms of slavery, it also reflects on the role of women and domestic work at large in capitalist societies.
