Sofia Laszlovszky

The story is based on observations on the changing worldview of mankind and shows the weird connection between different cultures through time and their worldview. All the scenes contain associations on myths, legends and scientific facts, which were in their time believed and known as reality. So the eternal urge to explain where we came from and how the universe works seems to be born with us. What is reality? Or is “reality” just as fragile and varies just as much as every individual’s own view of existence? And what if the whole existence isn’t “real” in the way we imagine it? These were the main background questions of the film. I collected these episodes of human history, which were inherited by all of us through collective knowledge and tried to convert them to an ongoing story, making it lifelike. MORE

The Prophetess

Sylvie Weber

Set in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), The Prophetess follows the powerful friendship of two Congolese women who, despite having both been raped, are more than victims. Through their friendship, the two find the strength to support each other and heal one another. The Prophetess steps away from the traditional documentary towards an aesthetically driven narrative short, referencing the canon of Congolese mythology and evoking the story of Kimpa Vita, a woman of The Kingdom of the Kongo who rejected colonial rule and employed her vision to inspire. Together with Kimpa Vita, the protagonists and their community of powerful females step into a new future; a future inspired by their ancestors; a future where all generations of women join together to shape a different world. As the Congolese proverb goes: No matter how long the night, the day is sure to come. MORE
