Women and the Egyptian revolution is the result of interviews An Van Raemdonck, a Belgian feminist, made with women's right activists in April 2011 in Cairo:
More as 25 year age there was of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, but nowadays there are still 41 separation walls dividing populations.
“Connected Walls” focus on 2 of them:
- the US-Mexico border wall
- the wall between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta.
Every 10 days, 4 local directors living on each side of these walls, divided in 2 film crews, have to communicate together despite these physical and cultural borders, in order to take up a challenge : co-directing short documentaries, about topics imposed to them. In between the diary and the independent documentary, those short stories will be daily testimonies about their walls.
Now it your time to judge the result !
"Connected Walls" is an idea, worked out by Belgische filmmaker Sébastien Wielemans, which also made the documentary movie A Cycle of Fences (2010).

Exactly 46 years after the fascist coup in Greece, 21 april 2013 was the release date of "Into the Fire - The Hidden Victims of Austerity in Greece" by Guy Smallman (maker of 15 Million Afghans on unemployment in Afghanistan) and Kate Mara.
This film was simultaneously released on websites, blogs and other platforms around the internet. The film is available in various languages, including Albanian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian and Spanish. You can watch those version on YouTube and other platforms. It is al explained here.
On the site of the movie the makers explain:"In times of severe austerity things look bleak for Greek people, but they’re far worse for those who have recently arrived. Without housing, legal papers or support, migrants in Greece are faced with increasing and often violent racism at the hands of the growing Nazi party Golden Dawn and the police in Athens. Many are trapped by EU laws and legislation of other EU countries meaning they’d be returned to Greece if they managed to get to another member state, they are desperate to leave the country.
This film gives incredible insights to the reality faced by people who simply want to lead peaceful, normal lives.
Having been to Athens to shoot footage about austerity in April last year, Reel News video activists started talking and working with a young Somalian refugee, they made many contacts in the migrant world and those contacts gave them access to a huge number of untold and shocking stories."
