Rupa's BoutiqueRupa’s Boutique (2017). 52 mins.

Director, Glória Halász (Hungary)

In Rupa’s Boutique there are dreams on the hangers. Dreams that meant hope for the victims of acid attacks even in the worst times. All the girls there are back on their feet after their tragedy, becoming independent and visible. According to the activists of Stop Acid Attacks helping the victims, in India there are 3-5 attacks each week. Many victims do not report the crimes to the police because they are afraid of being socially stigmatised.

Calais: On the Road to ReliefCalais: On the Road to Relief (2016). 20 mins.

Director, Jake Martin Graves

Caught between the increasing demands of a growing camp and the regular police raids, this documentary reveals the chains of relief networks that entirely sustained the residents of the Calais Jungle over 8 months leading up to its demolition.

Mayor (2016). 15 mins.

Director, Moritz Adlon (Germany)

Dupfing expected refugees. And Mayor Zepp is afraid – less prior to the asylum seekers themselves, but rather from the reactions of his community citizens. So he keeps it for himself. But his secret threatens to fly up as yard owner Otto someday showsup: He knows about Zepps situation and offers a solution: He wants to make him his more than questionable real estate palatable, which could equally well be out of town to accommodate the newcomers. On the tour of the farm to trailer tent the situation escalates between the two and Zepp is set back to itself. The next morning, in fact, the new church members standing on the street, but it is still short of just a brilliant idea: before the assembled congregation he explains it to his own family.
