Cinema and Human Rights: EU013

EU013 / Italy / Alessio Genovese / 2014 / 62 min / OmeU

For the first time, a film crew is given the opportunity to film inside an Italian detention camp for refugees. Alessio Genovese reveals with the help of his camera, a world behind the high fences of 'fortress Europe', and provides a unique perspective of their detention centers, their prisons, and the dreary life of its inmates. The film illustrates the EU's repressive asylum and border policies and shows how hope and disappointment are everyday occurrences for immigrants within the EU.

Cinema and Human Rights: Ruina

Ruina / Germany / Markus Lenz / 2013/ 73min / OmeU

Ruina tells the story of a banking building in the center of Caracas, which had been closed due to bankruptcy. Now the large building is occupied and offers shelter to approximately 750 people. Ignored by the city administration and feared within the neighborhood, the residents of Torre Confinanzas are working on their own model of a socialist micro-society.
Filmmaker Markus Lenz shows more than a simple two-dimensional image. He dives deep into the lives of the residents and captures their alternative concept of life and work in his film. He sheds light on their work ethic, sense of duty and their sense of belonging, managing and o...rganizing.
