      While filming a routine stop and search of her boyfriend on the London Underground, Gemma suddenly found herself detained, handcuffed and threatened with arrest. Act of Terror tells the story of her fight to bring the police to justice and prevent this happening to anyone else, ever again. It is easy to forget about the 2000 Terrorism Act and its damaging effect on civil liberties and human rights.  Act Of Terror puts the spotlight back on this murky law, and demands that we keep vigilant in the face of ever increasing state power. An animated journey through the labyrinthine world of English Justice, the sinister caveats of Terrorism legislation, and the shocking cronyism of the police complaints system, Act Of Terror is about strength in the face of powerlessness and finding the courage to fight back.

      • THE VILLAGE OF STOLEN KIDNEYS - [Editor's cut]

        In the village of Hokshe, Nepal, local residents estimate that nearly 70 people, out of roughly 300, have sold their kidneys on the black market. Lured to India by the promise of cash, villagers are tricked into thinking their kidneys will regrow “like a mango in a tree.” Years later the money is gone, and so is their means of survival.

            from LET MEDIA / Added

            Afghan Cycles is a short documentary film about the Women's National Cycling Team of Afghanistan. "The bicycle has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives a woman a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. The moment she takes her seat she knows she can't get into harm unless she gets off her bicycle, and away she goes, the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood." - Susan B. Anthony Nowhere is this quote more true than in Afghanistan today. Afghan Cycles introduces the first women to ride bikes in the country, illustrating the gender and social barriers that the team is breaking, one pedal stroke at a time. Highlighting 4 of the 12 teammates, we look at their lives on and off the bike. From training on dangerous trucking highways to following them through a typical day in Kabul, the film shares the intimate story of these brave and passionate young women who feel free when they are on their bikes in an otherwise oppressive culture. To understand the cultural shift that these women are igniting, we spoke with Parliament member and Presidential hopeful, Fawzia Koofi. She speaks to the conditions of women's lives in Afghanistan, and the cultural benefits of women in sport. We also sat down with Heather Barr of the Human Rights Watch who has been working in women's prisons throughout the country as an expert on women's rights in Afghanistan. Our characters also include the President of the Afghan Olympic Committee and the coach of the team, who both explore how the team was formed and their goals for the women.

                  Our lives are often less impactful than they could be because we underestimate the value of humble persistent effort. Popular culture looks to the superstars to save the day. The entertainers, the philanthropers. But, the fact of the matter is that the needs of the world are, for the most part, met by average people. People like you. People who say, "sure, I can't help everyone, but I can help someone, and I will." http://www.kirabofoundation.org/ Music By: Bromeliad Music http://www.vimeo.com/bromeliadmusic

                    REAL ESTATE 4 RAN$OM outlines a genuine alternative to the global property speculation mantra that continues to force so many into debt or dingy homes. Doubling the pressure, the tax game has become just that, with tax havens a favoured option for the wealthy. The result - we are taxing the wrong things, causing more problems whilst bankrupting once proud economies. A systemic change is essential if we are to avoid these damaging boom-bust-bailouts. https://www.facebook.com/realestate4ransom Co-Directors - Gavin Emmanuel (foregroundmedia.com/) & Karl Fitzgerald.
