THE RICE BOMBER

THE RICE BOMBER 

2014 | Fiction | 80′ | TAI  | vo Ch st Fr Nl

Set during an economically turbulent period in Taiwan’s recent history, the film follows the small town boy from his life on a rice farm in the central Changhua region, to the military service that taught his the tricks of his trade and finally to full blown agitator trying to bring attention to the plight of the island’s farmers. As Taiwan enters the WTO and struggles beneath the burden of a newly globalized food supply, Yang Rumen (Huang Chien-Wei) transforms into an advocate for local farmers. Progressing from letters to the editor, to petitions at government agencies and finally his renowned rice bombs, Rumen (in reality now a major proponent and practitioner of organic farming after 7 years in prison) doesn’t want to hurt anybody, one of the reasons his 17 bombs (which spray rice like buckshot) are planted in reasonably empty spots. That’s not the case of his likeminded friend Troublemaker (Nikki Hsieh), a rich gangster’s daughter who prefers more militant action. (Elizabeth Kerr, the Hollywood Reporter)

BEAUTY IN TRUTH: ALICE WALKER

 alicewalker_parmar
BEAUTY IN TRUTH: ALICE WALKER
2013 | Documentaire | 83′ | UK | vo Eng st Fr Nl

“Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth is a feature documentary film which tells the compelling story of an extraordinary woman’s journey from her birth in a paper-thin shack in cotton fields of Putnam County, Georgia to her recognition as a key writer of the 20th Century.

Alice Walker made history as the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for her groundbreaking novel, The Color Purple, which has been transformed from a novel, to a Hollywood movie and latterly to a successful Broadway musical. This universal story of

triumph against all odds is not that different from Walker’s own story. Born in 1944, eighth child of sharecroppers, her early life unfolded in the midst of violent racism and poverty

during some of the most turbulent years of profound social and political changes in North American history. Alice Walker’s inspiring journey is also a story of a country and a people at the fault line of historical changes. Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth offers audiences a penetrating look at the life and art of an artist, a selfconfessed renegade and human rights activist.”

ACTORAS DE CAMBIO

ACTORAS DE CAMBIO
Short | 30′ | GTM/ FR | vo st FR

“Actoras de Cambio, which means “”Actresses for Change””, is a feminist collective in Guatemala which was founded to break the silence surrounding the rapes committed mainly against indigenous women during the 36 year-long civil war. It is estimated that soldiers – and sometimes even resistants – raped around 40,000 women during the armed conflict. It took fifteen years after the end of the war to begin to release the patriarchal straightjacket imposed on female victims, who until then hadn’t been able to talk about these crimes committed against them. This documentary shows the work accomplished by the survivors and the collective, who enabled women to come together in small local groups to tell their stories and hear those of others, and to understand this sexual violence in the context of men’s global domination over women. Building on these meetings, the groups of women developed their own healing methods, began to take action to achieve alternative forms of justice and organise festivals of memory, to fight against men’s impunity.”

TOMORROW

TOMORROW

2014 | Fiction | 70′ | FR  |  vo Fr

In order to cure their respective procrastination, a film director, an actor and a musician, go on a pilgrimage to Tunisia to see the cave settings in Matmata where George Lucas shot several scenes of « Star Wars ». As they arrive, they look for an anti-procrastination ritual which would help them to finally get back into action…This is alternative cinema: poor but free.

TOMORROW has been shot with a very small camera, a computer and very limited resources. This means no technical crew, just me and the actors… TOMORROW could not have been made differently; its creation process, very open and based on improvisation in every level, was incompatible with the ways of film industry.
