Premieres Worldwide on Earth Day 2021

Synopsis: The Race to Save The World is a climate documentary with a uniquely optimistic approach. It follows passionate activists whose single-minded focus is the creation of a sustainable world for future generations. These climate warriors, ages 15 to 72, are in the trenches fighting for a livable future, regardless of the personal cost. Emmy award-winning filmmaker Joe Gantz brings an urgent and intimate portrait of the protests, arrests, courtroom drama, and family turmoil these activists endure as they push for change. The Race to Save The World is an energizing and inspiring call-to-action that inspires viewers to quit waiting on the sidelines and start making their voices heard.

“These are important stories, told in engaging fashion -and I can testify that there are similar scenes from every corner of the planet. The fight to halt the destruction of the planet’s climate system may be the biggest movement in earth history, and these brave people help tell a tale everyone needs to hear!”
– Bill McKibben, Founder 350.0rg

“I hope everyone will watch this film and be inspired to join these everyday heroes in the struggle of our lifetime.”
– Annie Leonard, Executive Director, Greenpeace US

“Successful social movements always have a small number of deeply-committed people willing to take extraordinary risks. The Race offers a frank look at some Americans who have chosen to place their bodies at the “tip of the spear” in the fight for climate justice. Their courage, and their resolute optimism, is inspiring.”
– Denis Hayes, Environmental and solar power advocate, coordinator of the first Earth Day and Founder of the Earth Day Network

“There is still time to prevent catastrophic climate change. This powerful film shows how each of us can use our voice and our actions to save this planet from destruction. Watch it and be inspired to make a difference.”
–  Michael Mann, Author of The New Climate War

What happens with love when a woman in the middle of her life gets three months left to live?

Synopsis:  ANJA (43) lives with TOMAS (59) in a large family of biological children and stepchildren. For a number of years the two adults have grown independent of each other, with creative jobs in parallel worlds. When Anja gets a terminal cancer diagnosis, their modern life breaks down and exposes neglected love. Alone with her grief and her fears, Anja realizes that she needs Tomas’ full help and support. It’s their only chance. How else will their children find the strength once she is gone, if their parents are unable to weather the storm together? Anja and Tomas are thrown into a crash course in mutual trust, and eventually a joint struggle, to deal with this unexpected and premature death. By getting to know each other anew, they unconsciously become the principal characters in a love story where they finally learn to truly love each other after a long life together.

Language: In Norwegian with English subtitles

—Jay Weissberg, Variety

“A melancholy, highly satisfying adult drama intensely moving.”
—The Hollywood Reporter

“A wildly impressive and devastating relationship drama with unforgettable performances from both Andrea Bræin Hovig and Stellan Skarsgård”

—Hammer to Nail

“Sødahl… is an artist of quiet, disciplined observance.”
—Screen International

Synopsis: Berlin-based Mosotho filmmaker Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese’s devastating and hypnotic This Is Not a Burial, It’s a Resurrection is already one of the most esteemed African films ever to hit the international festival circuit, earning the Special Jury Prize for Visionary Filmmaking at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, before taking home Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Cinematography at Africa’s Academy Awards.

Deserving comparison with the work of Pedro Costa, Andrei Tarkovsky, and Souleymane Cissé, This Is Not a Burial marks the introduction of a major filmmaker and the final powerhouse performance of a remarkable actress.

The late Mary Twala Mhlongo, recognizable from Beyoncé’s blockbuster musical Black Is King, gives a heartbreaking career-capping performance as Mantoa, an 80-year-old woman who has lived in a small Lesotho village for her entire life. While preparing for her own death, she receives word of an accident that has killed her only son, leaving her entirely alone, with only the respect of her community, the traditions of her ancestors, and the courage of her convictions. When her community must relocate to make way for a nearby dam which would flood her family’s burial ground, Mantoa draws a line in the sand and becomes an unlikely political and spiritual leader.

Cryptic, impressionistic, and informed by magical realist literature, This Is Not a Burial, It’s a Resurrection contains some of the most striking visual compositions in contemporary cinema, all the more impressive considering this is the first feature-length film for both cinematographer Pierre de Villiers and production designer Leila Walter. The cumulative power of Mantoa’s sacrificial crusade, Mhlongo’s earthy performance, and Mosese’s visionary artistry announce an unmistakable landmark in African cinema.

“A strange, poetic, haunting, surreal film”
– The Guardian

“A jarring and important experience… Deserves to be seen”
– Award Circuit

“​Evocatively shot and elegiacally directed by Lemohang Jeremiah Moses”
– Sunday Times

This Is Not A Burial, It’s A Resurrection​ offers a vivid, beautifully crafted reflection on identity, community and the tension between respecting age-old traditions and accepting the seemingly unstoppable march of progress.​ ​Carrying influences that seem to range from Souleymane Cisse to Ciro Guerra, it marks out Mosese as a notable new voice in African cinema.”
– Screen Daily

“​This Is Not A Burial, It’s A Resurrection​ is that rare gem of a film”.
– The Playlist

“It’s a story told through the gracefulness of the camerawork, the stunningly lit tableaux, and, most remarkably of all, through fabric. Not many films, especially ones with a documentary sensibility, use texture—wool, mud, cement, ashes, and cloth specifically—as a storytelling device the way that This Is Not a Burial, It’s a Resurrection does.”
– Slant Magazine

Synopsis: From Oscar® nominated director and producer, Evgeny Afineevksy, FRANCESCO features unprecedented access to His Holiness Pope Francis, providing an intimate look at a global leader who approaches challenging and complex issues with tremendous humility, wisdom and generosity towards all. Spanning issues such as climate change, migration and refugees, women’s empowerment, sexual abuse and LGBTQ+ issues, pandemic, border walls, and many more of today’s headlines, this documentary takes audiences on a worldwide journey to spotlight the incredible empathy displayed by a leader who continues to inspire hope during an extraordinary moment in our lifetime. In doing so, the film examines how people might take action to transition into a new way of living and thriving in the 21st century.

In addition to unprecedented access to Pope Francis, the film features interviews with those who have been part of his journey, including his nephew Jose Ignacio Bergoglio, His Holiness Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, as well as Juan Carlos Cruz, a victim and activist for survivors of sexual abuse, and Sister Norma Pimentel, an advocate for refugees. FRANCESCO paints a portrait of a man who has dedicated his life to bringing together people to thrive as a global community.

Francesco offers an unprecedented look into the life of a pope — and not just any pope, but Pope Francis, whose compassionate and progressive approach is captured beautifully in Evgeny Afineevsky’s film. Whether you are Catholic or not, you will be fascinated by this powerful portrait of a truly historic figure.”
