A feature documentary by Ismael Louati

"Hackers of Borders” is a tale of resilience, an intimate mosaic of beings representing the multiplicity
and complexity of the future of humanity at a time when displaced populations around the world are
no more than statistics and stereotyped figures through the media and politicians.What is the documentary
cinema if not giving a face to those whose image is frozen in the imaginary? For us they are refugees.
But how do they see themselves? Basically, the question of Hackers of Borders is: who am I?
Who am I if I'm born stateless, if I can't remember my homeland, if I can't make my dream come true,
if I can't choose my sexual identity, if I can't be buried with dignity?"

A documentary-essay by Panos Aprahamian

Yabandjo is a documentary-essay investigating the remnants of a traumatic past in bodies consumed
by history as an uncertain future looms over the landscapes they inhabit. Landscapes that are in the
process of being transformed into what will no longer be recognized by the present, where the camera intervenes to document that which will soon be no more. The landscapes of Anjar, a small town in rural
Lebanon only a few miles from the Syrian border and inhabited by ethnic Armenians where the ordinary
and the uncanny meet in a border community in transition haunted by a dark past and an unknown future.
