Epicentro

An immersive and metaphorical portrait of post-colonial, ‘utopian’ Cuba, and its resilient people a century after the explosion of the USS Maine in Havana, the event that ushered in the American Empire alongside a modern form of world conquest: cinema as propaganda. In Epicentro, SAUPER explores a century of interventionism and myth-making together with the extraordinary people of Havana to interrogate time, imperialism and cinema itself.

The 2nd Repatriation

In 2000, in the era of inter-Korean reconciliation, 63 non-converted long-term prisoners were repatriated to the North, and a 2nd repatriation movement was launched in 2001 but failed again and again in later years. As of 2022, the average age of the surviving secondary repatriation applicants is 91.

Repatriation

Repatriation chronicles the lives of ‘unconverted’ North Korean spies who were captured and imprisoned in South Korea for more than 30 years. Director KIM Dongwon developed a close relationship with them after their release from prison and eventually made a documentary that spanned 12 years in the making, providing a penetrating insight into the tragic consequences of the Cold War that still persist in Korea.

Irradiated

Through the encounters and testimonies of victims of bombings that remind him of his past and what he has lived through, director Rithy PANH crosses these stories in all senses, using images, words and looks that bear witness to the attempt to destroy the world. And yet the traces are there. Tangible, real. Even nature speaks. Some plants become monstrous, while others resist and heal wounds.

The First 54 Years – An Abbreviated Manual for Military Occupation

What is the meaning of a military occupation? Through the testimonies of the soldiers who implemented it, director Avi MOGRABI explains the functioning, logic and practices of a colonialist occupation. He uses the 54 years of Israeli occupation in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip as the basis for a ‘Short Manual of a Military Occupation’.

All Light, Everywhere

An exploration of the shared histories of cameras, weapons, policing and justice. As surveillance technologies become a fixture in everyday life, the film interrogates the complexity of an objective point of view, probing the biases inherent in both human perception and the lens.

Reason

From 2013 to 2017, gunmen on motorcycles has shot dead four prominent Indian rationalists, all non-violent opponents of right-wing, upper-caste Hindutva supremacists. Reason examines the rise of a myopic authoritarianism that is threatening India, the world's largest democracy. Its eight chapters also bear witness to heroic acts of resistance in an epic battle that the world cannot afford to look away from.

Memento Stella

The filmmaker reduces 4K video footage of various cities and common objects to the finest grains, and then layers these abstract images to create a visually evocative contemplation of human existence. The title of the film, an original phrase meaning 'remember the stars' and 'remember we live among the stars', invites the viewer to transcend the earthly boundaries that are tearing us apart.

Just Don't Think I'll Scream

It was January 2016; the love story that brought me to the village in Alsace had ended six months ago. At 45, I was alone, without a car, a job, or any real prospects. France, still in shock from the November 2015 terrorist attacks, was in a state of emergency. I felt helpless, lost, and suffocated with contained rage. I decided to record this stagnation by editing shots from the stream of films I watched.

Contemporary Scenes

The filmmakers turn their concerns over the past and the present of this turbulent world into documentaries, revealing the innermost of our minds and thoughts. Through these selected films, we see the contemporary scenes in which we live.
