True/False Film Festival Collection

  • As Time Goes By In Shanghai
    As Time Goes By In Shanghai | Director: Uli Gaulke  
    Year of production: 2013| Country of production: Germany, Netherlands | Language: Dutch, Mandarin (with full English subtitles available)

    The oldest band of the world has been playing every evening at the Peace Hotel in Shanghai for more than thirty years. Most members of the band, all Jazz musicians of the first rank, are older than 80 years. As Time Goes By in Shanghai acompanies the oldest band in the world on their greatest adventure yet: their appearance at the North Sea Jazz Festival Rotterdam, the most important festival of its kind. Against the backdrop of great jazz hymns, the film charts the fascinating life stories of these seven exceptional musicians.

  • Forgetting Dad
    Forgetting Dad | Director: Rick Minnich   Matt Sweetwood  
    Year of production: 2008| Country of production: Germany, USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    One week after a seemingly harmless car accident, Richard Minnich wakes up with total amnesia. He no longer recognises his wife and children and has a great deal of difficulty with the simplest daily tasks.
    Sixteen years later, filmmaker Rick Minnich – the oldest son from Richard’s first marriage – returns to California with a camera in search of answers to why his father’s memory still hasn’t returned. Was Richard really struck by a horrible affliction, or was he perhaps trying to escape from a life he could no longer lead?

  • Gypsy Davy
    Gypsy Davy | Director: Rachel Leah Jones  
    Year of production: 2012| Country of production: Israel, Spain, USA | Language: English, Spanish (with full English subtitles available)

    When a blond Californian with Alabama roots becomes a Flamenco guitarist in Andalucian boots, what happens along the way and behind the scenes? GYPSY DAVY tells the story of David Jones, stage name: “David Serva,” from the perspective of his five women and five children—one of whom is the director. Who knows the man who came and saw and conquered, “strumming their pain with his fingers,” better than they? Part duel and part duet—between a guitar-wielding father and a camera-pointing daughter—the film is much more than another hunt-down-the-absent-father movie, it’s a home-made epic.

  • Ukraine Is Not a Brothel
    Ukraine Is Not a Brothel | Director: Kitty Green  
    Year of production: 2013| Country of production: Australia | Language: Russian, Ukrainian (with full English subtitles available)

    Ukraine’s topless feminist sensation, Femen, has stirred up a press frenzy across Europe. Femen bare their breasts to protest the international perception of Ukrainian women as either brides for sale or commodities of sex tourism. With a first-time intimate glimpse into the world’s most provocative feminist organization, we see how Femen fight their naked war against patriarchy. However, before they take the world by storm, these bold and beautiful women must first confront the perverse and contradictory forces that power their own “titillating” organisation.

  • Drone
    Drone | Director: Tonje Schei  
    Year of production: 2014| Country of production: USA | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    Michael Haas has played war video games since he was 5. At 19 he is employed by the US AirForce as a drone pilot.
    This is the new warfare: Young gamers recruited to operate drones through their computers to kill real people 7000 miles away. This is not science fiction but today’s reality and the big investment of the future: Robot war. As technology expands at an unprecedented rate we are part of an experiment that changes our wars and possibly our world. DRONE gives crucial context and new perspectives that reveal crucial secrets of the CIA drone war and asks where we are headed.

  • Enemies of the People
    Enemies of the People | Director: Thet Sambath   Rob Lemkin  
    Year of production: 2010| Country of production: Cambodia, United Kingdom | Language: English, Khmer (with full English subtitles available)

    More than simply an inquiry into Cambodia’s experience, however, ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE is a profound meditation on the nature of good and evil, shedding light on the capacity of some people to do terrible things and for others to forgive them.
    It is also a personal journey into the heart of darkness by journalist/filmmaker Thet Sambath, whose family was wiped out in the Killing Fields, but whose patience and discipline elicits unprecedented on-camera confessions from perpetrators at all levels of the Khmer Rouge hierarchy.

  • The Look of Silence
    The Look of Silence | Director: Joshua Oppenheimer  
    Year of production: 2014| Country of production: Denmark, Indonesia, United Kingdom | Language: Indonesian, Javanese (with full English subtitles available)

    Through Joshua Oppenheimer’s work filming perpetrators of the Indonesian genocide, a family of survivors discovers how their son was murdered and the identity of the men who killed him. The youngest brother is determined to break the spell of silence and fear under which the survivors live, and so confronts the men responsible for his brother’s murder – something unimaginable in a country where killers remain in power.
