Where there is fire, there is smoke

Video images from France of a police car on fire get shown around the world. The worldwide media report this violent incident. But what happened on the 18th of March, Quai de Valmy in Paris? A police car is on fire, beside a demonstration by the Police force at Place de la République. In the police car are two police officers. The media horde are in place: the incident is covered from different angles but all reports speak in a similar way about it. What do they tell us? What are we shown, what are we supposed to believe and what happens if we look at the images from a different point of view?

October 5 - 15, 2017

An international jury overview the sections of short films coming from all over the world. We prefer documentaries which succeed in representing the complexity of reality and discover in a new way its sensible and perturbing aspects on the same time accentuating the ambivalent and enigmatic status of reality in avoiding sterotypes and simplifing conclusions.
