Wed Yú

Director: Natalie Adorno.
The word Paez WEDX YÚ means "water fish" and it was the name of the territory of the ancestors of the current shelter in San Andrés de Pisimbalá where is the Archaeological Park of Tierradentro, in the department of Cauca, Colombia. The current descendants of the NASA people are rediscovering their identity and regaining its cultural tradition organizing a meeting of three days. It is a testimony for the recovery of memory and tradition. The meeting is organized by a party host chosen by the community, it is organized around a ritual of harmonization and thanks to Mother Earth. Traditional doctors prepared the remedy of harmonization for the whole community that comes with pleasure. Harmonization for life, peace and coexistence. This is life, not disunity. It is the tradition and anybody could not live without it because a people who do not look to its past is a people that has no clear future. Thus, in this environment that looks to its ancestors, through music, traditional food thanks to the Minga (ancient tradition of community for purposes of social utility.) and the exchange of products and the recovery of a rock, this cultural encounter is made to "recover what eighty years ago was lost.”

INHALE EXHALE

Director: Jean Counet.
This is usually where life begins and ends. We may have a peek at all its stages in a Latvian hospital. We get to know its patients, medical personnel, building layout and infrastructure as well as its atmosphere, heavily influenced by the hospital sounds and colours. A meeting place of people from different social strata, this is where friendships are formed and painful partings occur. The picture of a big hospital seems intimate and familiar, at the same time trying to capture the mystery of the place.
