On Our Doorstep

6 March 2021

On Our Doorstep delves deep into an area of the refugee crisis that rarely reached the press. With NGOs blocked by red tape and with the absence of any positive action by French or British authorities, the film is a behind-the-scenes look at the extraordinary grassroots movement that rose up to aid the refugees in Calais, and the community that sprang up there, before it was forcefully demolished.

A Quiet Inquisition

13 March 2021

At a public hospital in Nicaragua, Dr Carla Cerrato, obstetrician-gynaecologist, struggles with her conscience as she contends with the harrowing implications of a new law that prevents the termination of any pregnancy, even when a woman’s life is at stake.

Unseen Enemy

20 March 2021

Unseen Enemy is an essential exploration of the reasons why we are experiencing a rash of diseases that were once only outbreaks, but have now become full-blown epidemics. This increased risk that we face, and the ways society and individuals can work together to reduce that risk, are demonstrated through the case studies of three epidemics: Ebola, influenza and Zika.

Thank You For The Rain

27 March 2021

Since 2012, Kisilu, a smallholder farmer in Kenya has used his camera to capture the life of his family, his village and the impacts of climate change. 

He has filmed floods, droughts and storms but also the more human costs - his kids are sent home from school when he can’t pay the fees; men are moving to towns in search for jobs; and family tensions rise.
