Walls and Talking About Rose 1 Sept 2016 Promo 1:00 min
Walls | Pablo Iraburu, Migueltxo Molina | Global | 2015 | 80 min
The world is increasingly divided by physical walls, with human beings on either side of them. Brilliant editing connects people living and working on different sides of the walls between Mexico and the United States, Spain and Morocco, Israel and Palestine, and South Africa and Zimbabwe. This true cinematic experience doesn’t enter geopolitical discussions directly, but rather explores the consequences of division as a global issue.

Talking About Rose | Isabel Coixet | Chad | 2014 | 30 min
Juliette Binoche recounts the life and death of Rose Lokissim, a prisoner of Hissène Habré, dictator in Chad from 1982 to 1990. Opposed to the dictatorship, arrested, imprisoned, and tortured, Rose proves courageous and indomitable. Parler de Rose is a tribute to her memory and a dark portrait of life under Habré. The film is especially poignant given Habré’s recent conviction for crimes against humanity.
