1. Panic and apprehension are the emotions that dominate the ten minute duration of the short film ‘Where is Don?’ However for many journalists and human rights defenders, such feelings do not just last the length of a short film, but are constant. Around the world, journalists and activists face persecution and severe danger for exercising their right to free expression. Such threats are often compounded due to the inaction or complicity of the authorities. More Raça explores the phenomenon in her native Kosovo, telling the tense tale of a journalist living in constant fear of threats, harassment and intimidation due to her writing.

  3. 'Listen' was directed by Hamy Ramezan and Rungano Nyoni and was produced by Valeria Richter and Helene Granqvist. It was produced last year as a part of the Finnish-Danish collaboration Nordic Factory.

    'Listen' takes place at a police station in Copenhagen. A foreign woman in a burqa brings her young son to file a complaint against her abusive husband, but the translator assigned to her seems unwilling to convey the true meaning of her words. Listen is described as a tense, diamond-hard film about cultural isolation and bureaucratic ignorance. The film highlights the difficulties in intercultural communication as well as the clash between cultures.

  4. Let the Devil Sleep is the story of four individual's unlikely journey of confession, forgiveness and reconciliation in post-genocide Rwanda.

    The Rwanda genocide of 1994 saw people murdered at a scale and at a speed not seen since World War II. Approximately one million people were killed, primarily from the minority Tutsi ethnic group.

    The damage inflicted by the genocide went beyond the loss of life. It left the country violently divided and highly traumatised. Towns and villages were split between those who took part in the genocide and those who lost family members.

    Such was the brutality of those 100 days that long after the killing had ended, the question remained: how could the people of Rwanda ever be reconciled?

    The film tells the story of how Trócaire's partner the Commission for Justice and Peace helped to bring together perpetrators and survivors of the genocide, building reconciliation between them.

    Filmed on location in Gikongoro and Kigali, Rwanda, January and February 2014, Let the Devil Sleep is the work of Alan Whelan, Eoghan Rice and Elena Hermosa.
