Maksim Schastnev 4/11/90 Male Russian Federation Through the mist –°–∫–≤–æ–∑—å —Ç—É–º–∞–Ω World War II, 1943. A group of German soldiers returning after an unsuccessful intelligence service, but not reaching its position, gets under heavy artillery fire. One of the soldiers, Friedrich, manages to escape by diving into a deep crater in the middle of the battlefield. The soldier expects to return to his group once the fire dies down. But then the unexpected happens: a Soviet soldier slides down the crater. Friedrich, unable to come to his senses, commits a mortal hit with his bayonet.

The situation in many ways familiar to the majority of the soldiers, would have remained a simple soldier’s death in the midst of the chaos of the war, but one circumstance changes everything: Friedrich can not get out of the bottomless pit in a daylight until it gets dark. The German soldier has no other option, but to spend the whole light day together with the dying man.

bidyut kotoky Male India Guns and Guitars – a musical travelogue Guns and Guitars track the journey of the director Bidyut back to his root – northeast India.

The 8 northeastern states connect with the rest of the country with a mere corridor of 21 km in breath at places, but shares more than 4500 km of international borders with 5 different countries Filmed as a travelogue, this musical quest brings to light the positive influence of music emanating from the youth living in this region, which is crippled by state and non state violence for the last half a century.

The journey finally culminates on the celebratory night of 24th May with Bob Dylan’s birthday concert, organized by the legendary northeastern musician Lou Majaw for the 41st consecutive years, where all the 8 rock bands with whom we interacted earlier participate. With guitar in their hands and songs of life and hope on their lips, these youngsters are truly instrumental in changing the northeastern canvas of despair and anguish into one of hope and peace, much like how Bob Dylan operated in the America of 60s, torn by civil rights movements & Vietnam War …

We were unable to give an absolute answer on abortion on social values , because it is not just a simple yes or no, it affect a variety of reasons and concerns after the decision made, like this world there things that‚Äôs simply inevitable .

In today’s society we talking about politics, homosexuality, social cases and other issues, but about “abortion” in this topic, we are unable to use a positive mind to think even feel shy, embarrassed. But the fact that abortion is one of the topics you and I have a need to know, according to statistics abortion people are not a minority, but people are willing to share the experience of only a few.

The project presented in animated form, for a variety of injuries abortion, mental and spiritual aspects of small to large to social perception, to explore and analyze the role and use of the set of twins, a rare precious irony declining birthrate society twins. No dialogue form to the island as the main body of the uterus, using bubble, tree, red rain and other elements, a symbol of women from pregnancy to abortion during the baby feel for the environment, with the baby feel about the environment, so that the viewer understands the fetus in fact, the body has all the senses, so when they suffer pain during an abortion is even more unspeakable.

The ultimate goal, to arouse the viewer’s reflection, like a silent movie dialogue form, the viewer can also reflect upon the importance of life.

Keiko Yagi 26/4/67 Female Japan BEHIND THE COVE Rebutting the Academy Award¬Æ Winning Documentary “THE COVE”.

Negative media coverage on Japan about the never-ending whaling issue prompted first-time documentary filmmaker Keiko Yagi to find out more about the topic. With no budget, limited experience in filmmaking, no fluency in English, but armed with a video camera and a strong desire to find out about the truth of the matter on whaling, I started my research.

What started out as a personal investigation triggered by childhood memories of whale meat dishes inevitably led me to the town of Taiji, the center of the whaling debate and the stage of THE COVE. What I found through my experiences there

and elsewhere was a much bigger story than I had initially

imagined.
