"THE BEST FOR FESTS :

ONES TO WATCH FOR FESTIVAL CONSIDERATION  carefuly curated by Bruno Chatelin

Can I go Home Now?

Documentary bt Pritan Ambroase USA 2024 1hour 42 minutes "Movie that Matters Award in Cannes"

The film is a cry of revolution from Children all around the world who continue to ask "Can I Go Home Now?" while being terrorized by wars. Filmed in the current war zone of Ukraine as missiles flew overhead, 'Can I Go Home Now?' is a heartbreaking, moving, and powerful documentary film that gives a voice to Children suffering from ongoing horrific wars. No adults are allowed to speak in this film. Rarely do Children get to have a say in a war fought by adults, and this film gives the Children a voice and a chance to speak up as they tell the story of this war in their own words. The film bears witness to their experiences, fears and hopes in a war zone. Despite their circumstances, they continue to dream and hope for a better future. The film is a lesson in courage about the impact of wars on Children all over the world and a testament to human resilience. This film is a testament to the fact that wars that affect Children cannot be allowed to happen anymore, anwhere in the world.

Wild Genius by Susan Kucera (Living in the future's past, Hot Money, 12th hour...)
Social impact documentary on evolutionary biologist Robert Travis,  1h:12minutes USA December 2023

Wild Genius portrays the exceptional life, career and mental health challenges of living legend Robert Trivers, the evolutionary biologist TIME magazine named as “one of the greatest scientists of the 20th Century”. Harvard psychologist and best selling Author, Steven Pinker calls him “an under-appreciated genius, and one of history’s greatest thinkers in the analysis of behavior and emotion.” An advocate for civil rights, Trivers’ straightforward logic makes an empowering case: understanding our evolutionary past isn't a life sentence but a liberating force.  Wild Genius is an entertaining and intellectual odyssey that challenges us to confront our evolutionary roots and societal taboos, daring us to think differently about ourselves and our place in the natural world. This isn't just the story of a groundbreaking scientist; it's an invitation to transform our understanding of life itself. We have the cognitive tools to know ourselves better and, by extension, to make a better world.
