“Last season, we were saying, there is no rain. No rain no rain no rain. Now we are flooded. Everything is being contradicted. Planning, failures. Planning, failures.” 
– Kisilu Musya, in Thank You For The Rain

Climate change is an abstract idea to most of us in the West. We might note it’s getting wetter, or that summers are less sunny than they were when we were kids, but safe inside our houses, with everything we need more or less at the touch of a button, we can shut it out at the end of a day.  It’s something Norwegian filmmaker Julia Dahr, director of Thank You For The Rain, was aware of in 2010 when, aged 23, she decided to make a film showing the effects of climate change on humans.

Selected for Moving Docs 2017: Free Lunch Society now online

Free Lunch Society is now available to watch online.

Globalization, automation, Donald Trump. The middle class is falling apart. One hears talk about the causes, rather than about solutions. Time for a complete rethink:

An unconditional basic income means money for everyone - as a human right without service in return! Visionary reform project, neoliberal axe to the roots of the social state or socially romantic left-wing utopia?

The old man and the sea – Dolphin Man now online!

Kirstin Innes about the documentary Dolphin Man, now available to watch online.

“We sea men are not normal. They call us 'sub' because we really are sub-normal. Because what Jacques Mayol did was not normal. If that had been normal we would have been really crazy.” – Giancarlo Formichi, underwater cinematographer and friend of Jacques Mayol

A thoughtful, multi-layered look at the life of free-diver Jacques Mayol (perhaps best known to cineastes as the inspiration for Luc Besson’s divisive but world-famous 1988 film The Big Blue), Dolphin Man is a far more complex film than its title would have you believe.

Greece: Days of Change – now in the MOVING DOCS Home Cinema

Kirstin Innes finds hope and solidarity in a film born of desperation, now available to watch online.

Given how quickly the political landscape has shifted and shifted again in recession-hit Greece in the last decade, it’s tempting to view the aptly-titled Greece: Days of Change, which premiered in 2014, as an historical document. Against the backdrop of the 2010-2012 anti-austerity movement, Elena Zervopoulou’s documentary follows three men trying to regain control of their lives from within the recession, and the different ways they channel their anger and frustration positively.
