We Come as Friends

A modern odyssey – a dizzying, science fiction-like journey into the heart of Africa. At the moment when Sudan, the continent’s biggest country, is being divided into two nations, an old ‘civilising’ pathology re-emerges – that of colonialism, clash of empires, and yet new episodes of bloody (and holy) wars over land and resources. (Doc Lounge Film ArchiveMoving Docs Website, Official Website)

 

The Look of Silence

Through Joshua Oppenheimer’s footage of perpetrators of the 1965 Indonesian genocide, a family of survivors discovers how their son was murdered, as well as the identities of the killers. The documentary focuses on the youngest son, an optometrist named Adi, who decides to break the suffocating spell of submission and terror by doing something unimaginable in a society where the murderers remain in power: he confronts the men who killed his brother and, while testing their eyesight, asks them to accept responsibility for their actions. (Doc Lounge Film ArchiveMoving Docs Website, Official Website)


Pervert Park

Florida Justice Transitions is a private institution, founded by a mother of a convicted sex offender who couldn't find a place to live after his release. The name is meant to signal a hope for justice and the belief that people can change. But can we talk about justice when we're dealing with the sexual abuse of children and minors? Or have the offenders forfeited this right forever by doing what they did? (Doc Lounge Film Archive, Moving Docs Website, Official Website)


Dreamcatcher

Dreamcatcher takes us into a hidden world through the eyes of one of its survivors; Brenda Myers-Powell. A former teenage prostitute who worked the streets of Chicago, Brenda defied the odds to become a powerful advocate for change in her community. With warmth and humour, Brenda gives hope to those who have none. Her story is their inspiration. (Doc Lounge Film Archive, Moving Docs Website, Official Website)

 

Spartacus & Cassandra

Thirteen-year-old Spartacus and 10-year-old Cassandra are Roma siblings taken in by Camille, a young trapezist who starts a circus on the outskirts of Paris. Brother and sister find a sense of belonging under the big top, and begin attending school. When the circus folds, the French state and the children’s parents wage a tug-of-war over custody, and the kids are forced to make the impossible choice between foster care with Camille or life on the run with mom and dad.
