Dystopian visions of the future, critical satire and black comedy are the prisms through which young media-makers’ make us look at European society. Among the 212 videos submitted to the Radical Democracy: European Video Challenge 2014, 30 were selected as the Finalists and 10 were awarded in May 2014 as part of the Planete+ Doc Film Fesitval in Warsaw. Through ostensibly small interventions and employing diverse genres and techniques, these videos reflect on the meaning of freedom and the position of individuals vis-à-vis political and economic systems. Together, they are an inspiration to rethink democracy in Europe and what role we have ourselves in shaping our societies. They are brought together in this channel. Jury member Juan Luis Sánchez (eldiario.es) captured the essence of Radical Democracy: ‘I learned a lot about the different realities in different countries.

Not in an ideological way, but by demonstrating the gap between ‘them’ and ‘us’. For more info: http://challenge.docnextnetwork.org.
