We Come as Friends

In the post-colonial world we live in, ‘We Come as Friends’ offers a reflection on whether colonialism really is history. Companies, political figures, missionaries and representatives of big help organisations may say one thing to themselves, but how do their words compare each other’s and most importantly to the words of the people of Sudan?

Jewish photographer Esaias Baitel spent four years infiltrating and photographing a Parisian neo-nazist group. For a limited time he not only took incredible photos, giving insight into a group that should not have been accessible to him, but formed an unlikely and complicated form of friendship with the members of the group. ‘Four Years of Night’ is an incredible document on the complexity of humanity, on intolerance and tolerance impossibly coexisting.

A rather different take on climate change, ‘ThuleTuvalu’ is the story of those who are effected most by the rising temperatures. The communities of Thule and Tuvalu face changes in their environment so dire it threatens their entire way of living, possibly even their very existence. ‘ThuleTuvalu’ is the heart-wrenching document of these communities hopes and fears for what the future might bring, a future they have no control over. This documentary is an important reminder to the world of the very real effects of climate change, as well as a celebration of the now threatened culture and identity of the communities in Thule and Tuvalu.
