WELCOME

to a reality-based community In 2004 a representative for the George W. Bush government lectured New York Times journalist Ron Suskind on how “reality” works, stating that journalists such as Suskind live in a “reality-based community” who “believe that solutions emerge from judicious study of discernible reality,” and concluding with: “That’s not the way the world really works anymore. We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality.” At the time this created a huge reaction, and after only a few days people bought t-shirts labelled with ”Member of The Reality Based Community”. Today, this idea that anyone can create their own alternative facts has become normalized and used by state leaders, not only in the U.S., but in many countries.

Trust in news media is declining. News articles are free online, and many of us consume it via Facebook and Twitter, but on social media disinformation travels faster than serious news. How does this affect us? One thing that is certain is that no one is immune to fake news. At this year’s festival we invite you to take part in discussions about how we can resist propaganda and promote a belief in an actual reality that can be investigated, analysed, and debated. Come listen to Erica Balsom from Kings College London explain how documentary filmmakers have adjusted to shifting times to maintain their credibility. Watch Hungary 2018 that shows how destructive, yet effective

populist propaganda rhetoric can be. Do not miss Mads Brügger’s confrontation with established “facts” in his latest film Cold Case Hammarskjöld. Get up to date on American politics, economics and harsh realities with Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 and Fred Peabody’s The Corporate Coup d’État. And not least do we encourage you to engage in the discussion about freedom of expression in the arts, triggered by the recent debate around the theatre play Ways of Seeing. At HUMAN idff you can watch fantastic, uplifting, provoking and enlightening films by Norwegian and international filmmakers - as well as theatre plays, exhibitions and more. You can share and discuss the experience with old and new friends and with filmmakers, experts, activists and human rights defenders from all over the world. What unifies this program is that it presents our common reality, seen from different viewpoints and with varying perspectives. To have a shared starting

point for discussion makes us able to talk about the actual reality and even sometimes change it for the better.

We can still agree to disagree, but the films you are about to watch will definitely broaden your perspective. And on Sunday 3 March we can all join the big Carnival. Welcome, and enjoy! Ketil Magnussen, Festival Director & Silje Poulsen Viki, Head of Programming

HIGHLIGHTED THEMES PEACE AND JUSTICE Can there be peace without justice? For many victims of human rights violations, justice is a precondition for reconciliation. Yet, such processes are seldomly a straight-forward matter. We address the issues of peace, justice and reconciliation processes in former Yugoslavia, Spain and Syria.

DEBATE:

FROM FRANCO TO ASSAD: NO PEACE WITHOUT JUSTICE Forty years after the end of Franco’s dictatorship, Spaniards continue to fight for justice. In Syria, hundreds of thousands have been arbitrary detained and forcibly disappeared. Driven by an uncompromising belief in human rights, Syrians are organizing to find, free and demand justice for their loved ones. See p. 57

FILM:

THE SILENCE OF OTHERS A shocking history about how the lack of justice after the dictatorship of Franco’s regime in Spain has forced hundreds of thousands of victims and their families to stay silent about their destinies. See p. 29

DEBATE: THE CASE AGAINST RATKO MLADIC The film The Trial of Ratko Mladic raises larger questions about the dilemma between justice and reconciliation, and about the international tribunal itself. What kind of justice can a trial achieve 20 years later? What is it like to defend and prosecute a man who has committed genocide? See p. 51 10   HUMAN IDFF 2019

FILM:

THE TRIAL OF RATKO MLADIC A hard-hitting documentary on when the man behind some of the worst war crimes of history finally was put on trial in 2012. The five year-trial in the International Criminal Tribunal for The former Yugoslavia is an opportunity for final reconciliation. See p. 30


OUR NEIGHBOUR,

RUSSIA

FILM:

MEETING GORBACHEV

The air is electrified when film veteran Werner Herzog sits down face-to-face with 87-year-old Mikhail Gorbachev. Usually sharp around the edges, Herzog betrays a great love for Gorbachev, the last leader of Soviet and the man behind perestroika and glasnost. Herzog shows us a man who is still pained by the failure of completing his vision of a reformed communism. With warmth and empathy the documentary takes us through Gorbachev’s personal memoirs, which are closely intertwined with the end of the cold war. See p.43

NABO MED RUSSLAND - DA OG NÅ Mikhail Gorbatsjov satt på første rad da Sovjetunionen gikk i oppløsning, og Russland stod igjen. I dag ledes stormakten av en president med store ambisjoner om å ta Russland til nye høyder, både ute og hjemme. Men om navnet og regimet endret seg, ligger én ting fast: Russland vil alltid være Norges nabo. Så hvordan forholder vi oss forskjellig til Sovjet dengang og Russland i dag? Var det farligere før enn nå? Forholder Moskva seg til omverden på samme måte nå som før? Og hvilke erfaringer fra naboskapet med Sovjetunionen er det viktig at vi fører videre? Vi spør noen av dem som kjenner Russland best – da og nå. Se s. 49

HIGHLIGHTED THEMES

WHAT NOW, SOUTH AFRICA?

Since the fall of Apartheid and the ANCs Nelson Mandela assumed power, inequality in South Africa has increased. Today, it is the most unequal country in the world, and social unrest is growing. We discuss the social, political and economic South Africa today, with two films and a debate.

DEBATE:

WHAT NOW, SOUTH AFRICA? Hopes were high for a better future in 1994, when the Apartheid regime fell and the ANC and Nelson Mandela took office. Yet, today’s South Africa is the most unequal country in the world, according to The World Bank.

FILM:

EVERYTHING MUST FALL The captivating and fast-paced story of the 2015 student upheaval in South Africa. In 2016, the student movement #FeesMustFall led to the largest violent clashes in South Africa since 1994. The film is a detailed portrayal of the complexity of a popular uprising. See p. 27

FILM:

WHISPERING TRUTH TO POWER In this political thriller we follow Thuli Madonsela in her final term of office as Public Protector in South Africa. Fearlessly she goes after president Jacob Zuma, and receives a political storm and death threaths in return. See p. 30 12   HUMAN IDFF 2019

Their report found that the top 1% of South Africans own 70.9% of the country’s wealth, while the bottom 60% only controls 7% of the country’s assets. Most of the people living in poverty are black. And most blacks are poor. Is this the legacy of Apartheid? What are the causes for the growing inequality? How does this play into politics? And how does it affect younger generations? See p. 56


THE ECONOMY, STUPID

IT’S

Economics affect everything in our society. Those who control the economy have tremendous power. But who are actually in control, and are those in control willing to wield their power for the common good? Are we homo economicus or homo solidaricus? We address these questions in several films and debates.

DEBATT:

ER OLJEFONDET SKODD FOR FRAMTIDEN?

FILM:

VIKINGS VS. WOLVES - THE BATTLE OF FINANCE As the world largest state-owned fund, The Norwegian Oil Fund is owned by the people and governed by politicians. The fund has to address the coming challenges, but can - or will - the Oil Fund make a difference? See p. 22

DEBATT: INTELLEKTUELL WRESTLING:

HOMO ECONOMICUS VS. HOMO SOLIDARICUS Hva bør samfunnet bygges rundt - Homo Solidaricus eller Homo Economicus? Hva ligger nærmest menneskets natur, det individuelle eller kollektive? Og hvilken side vinner faktisk fram i dagens samfunn? Vi samler begge sider til intellektuell brytekamp! Se s. 58

Oljefondet er verdens største investeringsfond. Men kan - eller vil - oljefondet gjøre en forskjell? Begrenser Etikkrådet fondets mulighet til å gjøre de meste gunstige investeringene og til å vokse? Og er fondet egentlig skodd for å møte de globale utfordringene som vil komme? Se s. 51

FILM:

THE CORPORATE COUP D´ÉTAT In a time where big corporations acquire an increasing amount of power through both corruption and lobbyism, democracy itself is at stake. Through philosophers, journalists, politicians and activists the documentary argues that there has been a silent coup d’état over the last 30 years. See p. 40

FILM:

THE PANAMA PAPERS When 11,5 million documents were leaked from a Panamanian law firm, incriminating world leaders for tax evasion, 376 investigative journalists came together and cooperated on the largest coordinated story in history, which brought down heads of state. See p. 44 HUMAN IDFF 2019   13


HIGHLIGHTED THEMES

POPULISM AND NATIONALISM Right-wing populism and ultra-nationalism is on the rise; Poland, Brazil, Hungary, and Ukraine are some of the recent examples of xenophobic forces ascending to power. Why is this happening, and how can we counter such forces? We focus on Hungary and Ukraine with a film and two debates.

DEBATE:

HUNGARY 2019: FAKING DEMOCRACY? FILM:

HUNGARY 2018 An alarming portrait of the parliamentary elections in Hungary in 2018. The rhetoric of the ruling party is coloured by extreme xenophobia and conspiracy theories. On the other side is an opposition trying to claim that Hungary needs to return to social democratic and solidaric politics. See p. 41

2019 started with thousands taking to the streets of Hungary in protests against an increasingly autocratic government. Where is Hungary going in 2019? Are Hungarians loosing their democracy? Are these protests the beginning of a larger opposition to Orban’s politics? See p. 59

DEBATE: THE THREAT OF ULTRA-NATIONALISM IN UKRAINE AND EUROPE Liberal, democratic values are under attack from right-wing parties and populist movements in Ukraine, as in several European countries. The illiberal democracy of Victor Orbán in Hungary and undemocratic developments in neighboring Poland may also have a negative influence on the situation in Ukraine. Will the liberal values of the 2014 Euromaidan revolution survive in the context of nationalism and conflict with Russia? How can developments in Ukraine be understood in the context of the nationalistic and protectionist discourse in Europe and globally? See p. 54

14   HUMAN IDFF 2019


FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION Freedom of expression is a fundamental right, often taken for granted, and persistently fought for by people living under oppressive regimes. But is this right under pressure in democracies too? We take a closer look at Israel and Norway, as well as the fight for freedom of expression in Vietnam and Pakistan, in debates and theatre plays.

DEBATT:

YTRINGSFRIHET I KUNSTEN: EN ARMLENGDES AVSTAND ELLER STATENS FORLENGEDE ARM?

THEATRE:

I, DAREEN T.

A documentary theatre work based on the story of Palestinian poet Dareen Tatour, who was convicted by the Israeli authorities for “incitement to violence” over a poem and two posts she published on Facebook. See p. 65

FILM + DEBATE VIETNAM: WHEN TELLING THE TRUTH BECOMES A CRIME Despite a significant economic growth, the human rights situation in Vietnam is deteriorating, with a shrinking space for civil society, as well as strong censorship. Blogger Mother Mushroom was sentenced to prison for her exposure of government abuse. What can Norway do to support human rights in Vietnam? See p. 53

Kulturen er en sentral arena for politisk kritikk, og kunstnerisk ytringsfrihet er helt nødvendig for et fungerende demokrati. Hvor går grensene og hvordan vi kan sørge for at ytringsfrihet i kunsten forblir sterk, uavhengig av det politiske klimaet? Se s. 56

TALK:

POET BEHIND BARS Across the globe, artists are threatened and incarcerated due to their courage to speak up against their governments’ human rights abuses. What is it like to be imprisoned for raising your voice? How does censorship affect artists’ practice? See p. 61

DEBATE:

EXTREMISM AND FREEDOM OF BELIEF IN PAKISTAN Hopes were high when Asia Bibi, after eight years in prison, finally was released and acquitted of her death sentence for blasphemy in Pakistan in 2018. Extremists appealed the aquittal, but lost. What will happen from here? Will newly elected Prime Minister Imran Khan lead Pakistan into a new era, with more tolerance and freedom of religion, or is his hands tied by the extremist HUMAN IDFF 2019   15 threats? See p. 47

NORSK KONKURRANSEPROGRAM

BJARNE VIL IKKE PÅ FILM

BRENNENDE MINNER

2018, Norge, 41 min Regi: Weronika Nitsch Prod: Nitsch Productions

2018, Norge, 80 min Regi: Ellen-Astri Lundby Prod: Ellen-Astri Lundby Film & Media

”Bjarne vil ikke på film” er en fortelling om hvordan en utenlandsk kvinne med filmkamera invaderer livet til sin nabo Bjarne. Hvem er han egentlig? Hun spør om liv og død, håp og drømmer. Han spør om hun ikke snart kan holde opp. Men når kvinnen bak kamera nekter å gi seg, oppstår et samspill sjelden sett på film - fullt av absurditeter, varme, alvor og humor. Og stort sett bare ubesvarte spørsmål.

I møte med flyktningbarn fra Syria og Sudan gjenopplever seks eldre tidsvitner den vonde tiden som barn i Norge under andre verdenskrig. Høsten 1944 ble 75 000 nordmenn flyktninger i eget land etter at tyskerne tvangsevakuerte og satte fyr på hjemmene deres i Finnmark og Nord-Troms. Målet var at ingen skulle bo eller leve i landsdelen. Gjennom møter med barn som bor der i dag, som selv har flyktet fra krig i andre deler av verden, bindes fortid og nåtid sammen.

“Bjarne Hates the Camera” is the story of a foreign filmmaker who invades the life of her neighbour Bjarne. Who is he? She asks him about life and death, hopes and dreams. He asks if she´s going to stop any time soon. But when the woman behind the camera refuses to stop, a relationship rarely caught on film is born - full of absurdities, warmth and humour. And mostly just a bunch of unanswered questions.

In the autumn of 1944 75,000 Norwegians became refugees in their own country after the German occupants set fire to their homes. Through meetings between some of these now elderly Norwegians and refugee children from Syria and Sudan, Norwegian history is linked to the refugee crisis of today. The documentary reflects on the impact war has on children and how difficult memories never fade.

FOR VI ER GUTTA

FORTELJINGAR OM MOT

2018, Norge, 74 min Regi: Petter Sommer, Jo Vemund Svendsen Producer: Fuglene

2018, Norge, 65 min Regi: Kari Klyve-Skaug Prod: Audun Skaug, Odveig Klyve for Nuten film

Hver tirsdag møtes en gjeng tatoverte middelaldrende menn for å ta en pause fra hverdagen. I en damefri sone, bak lukkede dører, drikker de øl, pleier vennskap og.... synger flerstemt. “Mannskoret” ble startet for nesten femten år siden. Bak lukkede dører på Kampen Bistro øver de inn sine helt egne versjoner av perler fra norsk rockehistorie. Tirsdagene er hellige for dem. De har til og med lovet å synge i hverandres begravelser. Det startet som en spøk. Men en dag, når en av gutta forteller at han har kort tid igjen å leve, innser de at livet er skrøpelig og at ingen av dem er udødelige.

Mellom oss lever det menneske som måtte flykta på grunn av orda sine. Korleis blir noko så viktig at ein set sitt eige liv i fare? Forteljingar om mot handlar om fire forfattarar frå Jemen, Kenya, Tsjetsjenia og Iran, som med pennen og frie ytringar har kjempa hardt for det dei trur på. Historiene deira er ulike, men noko er likt. Dei har alle vore redde - men har likevel handla. Forteljingar om mot inviterer publikum med inn i møte med desse fire personane og det dei framleis brenn for. Korleis er det å koma til land med demokrati og ytringsfridom, – når ein har ytra seg og sett livet på spel? Har dei no reell ytringsfridom? Har vi?

Every Tuesday twenty-five tattooed middle aged men take a break from their everyday lives, leave their wives and kids behind to meet and drink beer, tell bad jokes and sing dirty rock songs. When one of them confides he’s got little time left to live, they realise that life is fragile and that none of them are immortal.

Among us, there are people who had to flee their country because of their words. How is something so important that people place their lives in danger? Stories of Courage is a film about four authors from Yemen, Kenya, Chechnya and Iran, who through the use of the pen has fought hard for their beliefs.

NORSK KONKURRANSEPROGRAM

HVOR MAN VENDER TILBAKE 2018, Norge, 71 min Regi: Egil Håskjold Larsen Prod: Racha Helen Larsen for Yellow Log

«Hvor man vender tilbake» er en skildring av forholdet mellom mennesket og naturen, og et meditativt og nært innblikk i et liv nære elementene. Filmen følger 75 år gamle Steinar som har valgt et liv i pakt med naturen. Her ute i det nedisede og værharde landskapet, bare en kilometer fra den norske grensen til Russland, finner han friheten og roen. Han hører hjemme her, men livet alene med naturen er ensomt og overveldende.

Where Man Returns is a contemplative portrayal of man’s relationship with nature. 75 years old Steinar has chosen a life close to nature. He lives in an isolated icy universe on Europe’s northernmost tip, just one kilometre from the Norwegian border to Russia. In this remote wilderness, he finds freedom and tranquillity. He belongs here, but living alone with nature seems at times both lonely and overwhelming. Wed 27th 20:15 Cinemateket Tancred + Q&A Sun 3rd 17:00 Vega Scene Kino TRE + Q&A

JEG VIL BO I MITT NAVN 2018, Norge, 40 min Regi: Lars Erlend Tubaas Øymo Prod: August Baugstø Hanssen for Indie Film

Tomas Espedals ville og poetiske liv. Espedal skrev seg tidlig inn i bølgen av norske forfattere som trekker veksler på selvbiografiske elementer i romanene sine. I dokumentaren kommer vi nært på forfatteren som både forfatter og menneske, hvis en slik todeling er gyldig for tilfellet Espedal. Med sin sjarm og vidd er Espedal et takknemlig menneske å portrettere: Det føles som et privilegium å få slå følge med ham gjennom hans forfriskende refleksjon er rundt vandring, alderdom, språk og død.

Acclaimed writer Tomas Espedal’s wild and poetic life. Espedal is one of the early Norwegian writers to use his own life in a very direct way in his literature. In the documentary we become intimate with the writer both as a writer and a human being, if such a duality is possible in the Espedal case. We follow the charming Espedal through life and through writing.

PRIVACY OF WOUNDS

2018, Norge, 68 min Regi: Ellen Ugelstad Prod: Ellen Ugelstad for Twentyone Pictures

2018, Norge, 69 min Regi: Dalia Kury Prod: Jonathan Borge Lie for UpNorth Film

Making Sense Together er et filmessay som undersøker forholdet mellom makt og avmakt i psykiatrien. Gjennom fem nære og personlige vitnesbyrd belyser filmen maktstrukturer i helsevesenet fortalt av både brukere, pårørende og ansatte. I filmen deler fem personer sine nære vitnesbyrd fra psykiatrien. De flettes sammen med arkivmateriale og den fiktive historien om Kjetil og moren hans, og deres møte med helsevesenets byråkrati.

Hasan, Mazen og Khaldoon er tidligere politiske fanger fra noen av Syrias mest beryktede fengsler. Overbevist om at mennene ville kommunisere med en større åpenhet og ærlighet med hverandre uten regissøren i rommet, konstruerte regissøren en fengselscelle med tre fjernstyrte kameraer. Filmen gir oss et blikk på hvordan de oppfatter sin egen tilstand samt hva deres psykologiske utfordringer er sett i lys av deres nåværende historie. Mennenes dialog og refleksjoner reflekterer temaet Syria og tar oss med på en indre reise om hva som virkelig er det viktige ved livet.

A film essay investigating the power structures within psychiatric healthcare. Through five close and personal testimonies, the film highlights power structures in the health service told by both users, relatives and employees. What does the feeling of powerlessness do to your mental health and to your own feeling of self? How is it to live with the feeling of powerlessness over a longer period of time? How does it affect the people that exercise power? Wed 27th 19:30 Vega Scene Kino TO + samtale: Å bruke fiksjon til å si noe sant Sat 2nd 13:00 Cinemateket Tancred + debatt : Er jeg en pakke?

Hazan, Mazen, and Khaldoon are former prisoners of conscience from some of Syria’s most notorious prisons. Convinced that the three strangers will communicate openly and honestly with each other, the director observes them from the outside of a simulated prison cell in Oslo. Their dialogue and reflections about the war in Syria invites the audience into a soulful journey, highlighting what life is really about.

REINDRØMMEN 2018, Norge, 58 min Regi: Fridtjof Kjæreng Prod: Benedikte Bredesen for f(x) produksjoner

VIKINGS VS. WOLVES - THE BATTLE OF FINANCE 2019, Norge, 68 min Regi: Fredrik Horn Akselsen Prod: Rune H. Trondsen for NordicStories AS

Reiulf Aleksandersen (38) er norsk. Han har drømt om å drive med rein helt siden han var en liten gutt. Men som dácca, nordmann, har han ikke lov til å drive reindrift. Tilfeldighetene vil imidlertid at kona hans, som er samisk, får overta en egen flokk, på Kvaløya utenfor Tromsø. Det er et hardt liv, med magre kår og mye ensomhet, for familien bor fortsatt i Kautokeino. På Kvaløya er det en reineier fra før, Per Lars Kitti. Han mener det ikke er plass til to driftsenheter på øya. Når han går til rettssak for å stanse dem blir fremtiden enda mer usikker.

Vi står alle ved et veiskille. Dette speiles i verdens finansbransje. Samfunnsutviklingen har de siste tiårene gjort et fåtall ufattelig rike, samtidig som forskjellene i verden har økt. Demokratiske verdier er under press. Det norske Oljefondet er verdens største statlige fond, eies av det norske folk og styres av politikere. I motsetning til vanlige finansinstitusjoner, har dette politisk styrte fondet mandat til å se årtier fremover, med krav om etiske investeringer. Det er nødt til å ta hensyn til de kommende utfordringene, men kan - eller vil - Oljefondet gjøre en forskjell i en verden i endring?

Reiulf Aleksandersen is an ethnic Norwegian. He has dreamt of owning reindeer ever since he was a little boy. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity presents itself when a Sami woman retires and offers Reiulf her siida unit, a permission to own a reindeer herd, on the island Kvaløya outside Tromsø.

The world of finance is at a crossroads. The world is faced with unprecedented problems and democratic values are under pressure. As the world largest state-owned fund, The Norwegian Oil Fund is owned by the people and governed by politicians. The fund has to address the coming challenges, but can - or will - the Oil Fund make a difference?

WAR OF ART 2018, Norge, 102 min Regi: Tommy Gulliksen Prod: Benedikte Danielsen for Norsk Fjernsyn

Hva skjer når en gruppe kunstnere reiser inn i hjertet av Nord-Korea og utfordrer landets virkelighetsoppfatning mens verden er på randen av en atomkrig? I 2017 ble en gruppe internasjonale kunstnere invitert til Pyongyang. I løpet av ti dager skulle de produsere samtidskunst og møte kollegaer fra et regime der alle kunstnere er statsansatte og de siste hundre år med kunsthistorie er sensurert vekk. Er det likevel mulig å drive meningsfull kulturutveksling?

While the world is on the verge of nuclear war, a group of Western contemporary artists are invited into the eye of the storm: North Korea. The aim is to collaborate with North Korean artists in an art-exchange project displaying new and challenging art in a country where abstract art is forbidden. They arrive in pursuit of a peaceful cultural exchange, but the project may well turn into a War of Art.

These are films that move, engage and have interesting perspectives on the fight for justice. You’ll learn how the president of Kiribati is trying to find new land for his people as his islands are set to disappear, how women all over the world are trying to seize control over their own bodies and sexuality, what happens behind closed doors in a tribunal for war crimes, and why South Africa is the least equal countries in the world, to mention some of the program’s topics. We frequently hear that human rights are threatened, but at the same time we should focus on all those who fight for these universal rights. This film selection highlights that the global documentary industry is progressive and innovative.

ANOTE’S ARK

COLD CASE HAMMARSKJÖLD

2018, Canada, 77 min Director: Matthieu Rytz

2018, Denmark/ Norway/ Sweden/ Belgium, 128 min Director: Mads Brügger

How do you save a people from the first Atlantis of our time?

The fight against the heritage of Apartheid in the South African university system.

For the inhabitants of the small island nation of Kiribati in the Pacific Ocean, climate change is at their doorstep: the waves are washing away their living room floors. By the end of this century, Kiribati will be under water. An astonishingly beautiful, award-winning documentary which follows the president of Kiribati, Anote Tong, in his tireless fight to warn world leaders that Kiribati is just the beginning of a global catastrophe, and to find a solution for his people.

Enter the labyrinth of theories about who killed the UN General Secretary Dag Hammarskjöld, who died in a plane crash in The Congo in 1961. The controversial Danish filmmaker Mads Brügger investigates one of the theories of Hammarskjöld- but this only leads him to another conspiracy theory, about the involvement of the South African Apartheid regime in spreading HIV/AIDS. Brügger won Best Director at Sundance for this documentary, which fearlessly dives into the dark sides of post-colonial Africa, and the forces behind it.

For innbyggerne i den vesle øystaten Kiribati i Stillehavet er klimaendringene allerede gått for langt: innen vårt århundre er omme, vil hele Kiribati stå under vann. En forbløffende vakker, prisbelønnet dokumentar som følger Kiribatis president Anote Tong i hans utrettelige kamp for å advare verdens ledere om at Kiribati bare er starten på en uunngåelig global katastrofe, og for å finne en løsning for sitt folk.

Bli med inn i villnisset av teorier om hvem som drepte FNs generalsekretær Dag Hammarskjöld, som døde i en flystyrt i Kongo i 1961. Den ukonvensjonelle danske filmskaperen Mads Brügger nøster opp én av teoriene om Hammarskjöld- men trådene trekker ham til en annen konspirasjonsteori, om det sør-afrikanske apartheidregimets innblanding i spredningen av HIV/AIDS.

EVERYTHING MUST FALL

#FEMALE PLEASURE

2018, South Africa, 85 min Director: Rehad Desai

2018, Germany/Switzerland, 97 min Director: Barbara Miller

The fight against the heritage of Apartheid in the South African university system.

Five women challenging society’s control over female sexuality.

The captivating and fast-paced story of the 2015 student upheaval in South Africa. Universities have increased fees so dramatically that it excludes an increasing proportion of the black population. In 2016, the student movement #FeesMustFall led to the largest violent clashes in South Africa since 1994. The film is a detailed portrayal of the complexity of a popular uprising.

Japan, India, England, USA, Italy: The five women we meet come from different parts of the world, with different religions, but fight for the same cause: Women’s right to own their own body and sexuality. The structures that supress and oppress women is global, thus making the fight against them global. An upsetting and engaging reminder of how far we still have to come in the fight for women’s rights.

En medrivende fortelling med høy puls om da det i 2015 eksploderte i studentmassene i Sør-Afrika. Universitetene har økt avgiftene så dramatisk at en stor del av den svarte befolkningen blir ekskludert. Vi følger studentbevegelsen #Feesmustfall, som i 2016 førte til de største voldelige sammenstøtene i Sør-Afrika siden 1994.

ISLAND OF THE HUNGRY GHOSTS 2018, Australia/ GB / Germany, 98 min Director: Gabrielle Brady

A devastating mud tsunami caused by greed and corruption.

Stranded refugees and millions of crabs, in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

A visually stunning story about the Indonesian disaster that hit when an underground volcano of boiling mud exploded and swallowed 16 villages. 60 000 people are still waiting for reparations from the mining company Lapindo, which caused the eruption. We follow young Dian as she fights against corrupt politicians’ and greedy companies’ exploitation of the land and its people. A provoking but also uplifting portrait of willpower and resistance, set in an almost post-apocalyptic landscape of mud.

A dark, disturbing and almost surreal portrayal of life on the remote Christmas Island, where Australia has established an internment camp for asylum seekers. The therapist Poh Lin moved to the island with her family to aid the asylum seekers. But there are also 40 million crabs on the island, which each year migrate to the ocean. Large resources are put in place to secure the migration route for the crabs, and makes for a stark contrast to the treatment of the imprisoned humans.

En visuelt storslagen dokumentar om den indonesiske katastrofen som inntraff da en underjordisk vulkan av kokende gjørme eksploderte og druknet 16 landsbyer i leire. 12 år etter venter 60 000 mennesker fortsatt på oppreisning fra gruveselskapet Lapindo, som forårsaket utbruddet.

En mørk, urovekkende og nesten uvirkelig skildring av livet på den avsidesliggende Christmasøya, hvor Australia har opprettet en interneringsleir for asylsøkere.

LETTER FROM MASANJIA

THE SILENCE OF OTHERS

2018, Canada, 76 min Director: Leon Lee

2018, Spain / USA , 96 min Directors: Almudena Carracedo, Robert Bahar

A letter that turned life upside down for a persecuted Chinese and an unsuspecting American. The premise for this thriller could be from a fiction: An American woman finds a letter in a Halloween decoration made in China, written by a prisoner in a Chinese labor camp, asking for help. The letter causes headlines across the globe, and finds its way back to the man who wrote it, a persecuted practicioner of Falun Gong. What will happen when Chinese authorities finds out who directed the attention of the world to the persecution and torture of innocent Chinese?

En utrolig fortelling om da en amerikansk kvinne fant et brev i en Halloween-dekorasjon laget i Kina, skrevet av en innsatt i en kinesisk arbeidsleir som ba om hjelp. Brevet skapte medieoppslag over hele verden, og fant veien tilbake til mannen som skrev brevet, en forfulgt tilhenger av Falun Gong.

The hour of reckoning for the suppression of Franco’s Spain. A shocking history about how the lack of justice after the dictatorship of Franco’s regime in Spain has forced hundreds of thousands of victims and their families to stay silent about their destinies. A turning point came in 2010, when a group of courageous survivors and their families gathered and circumvented the Spanish justice system and accused former people of power of crimes against humanity in an Argentinian court.

En sjokkerende historie om hvordan mangelen på et rettsoppgjør etter Franco-regimets diktatur i Spania har tvunget hundretusenvis av ofre og pårørende til å tie om sine skjebner. Et vendepunkt kom i 2010, da en gruppe modige ofre og pårørende samlet anklaget tidligere maktpersoner for forbrytelser mot menneskeheten.

THE TRIAL OF RATKO MLADIC

WHISPERING TRUTH TO POWER

2018, Norway / UK, 99 min Directors: Henry Singer, Rob Miller

2018, Netherlands / South Africa, 86 min Director: Shameela Seedat

The labyrinth of justice in the former Yugoslavia.

The woman who brought down the president of South Africa.

A hard-hitting documentary on when the man behind some of the worst war crimes of history finally was put on trial in 2012. That was 20 years after the leader of the Bosnian Serb Army, Ratko Mladic, gave the order to the siege of Sarajevo and the genocide in Srebrenica, with the ultimate goal to remove all non-serbs. The trial in the International Criminal Tribunal for Former Yugoslavia is an opportunity for final reconciliation, and the documentary follows the five year long trial, from both sides.

In this political thriller we follow Thuli Madonsela in her final term of office as Public Protector in South Africa, where she has the mandate to uncover violations committed by the State. Fearlessly she goes after president Jacob Zuma, and receives a political storm and death threaths in return. This is a nervewracking David and Goliath story, with the lasting consequences of Apartheid as the backdrop.

Et knyttneveslag av en dokumentar om da mannen bak noen av historiens verste krigsforbrytelser endelig ble stilt for retten i 2012. Rettssaken i det internasjonale krigsforbrytertribunalet for tidligere Jugoslavia er en mulighet for endelig forsoning, og dokumentaren følger den fem år lange rettssaken.

ANTHROPOCENE: THE HUMAN EPOCH

2018, Canada, 87 min Directors: Jennifer Baichwal, Edward Burtynsky, Nicholas de Pencier Stefanie Brockhaus and Andy Wolff

CIRO Y YO 2018, Colombia, 107 min Director: Miguel Salazar

How humans have irreversably changed the planet.

The violent modern history of Colombia summed up in one man’s life.

This stunning, epic journey through six continents, highlighting the consequences of human activity, makes a convincing argument that we have entered a new geological age: the Anthropocene. This is the scientific term for the age of humans, and a group of researchers have spent a decade providing evidence that our current age, the Holocene, has ended, and the Anthropocene has begun. Humans have caused permanent, irreversable planetary change, and this documentary doesn’t allow you to look away.

War has found Ciro Galindo wherever he has run to. He was born in 1952, and his life encapsulates the terrible human costs of Colombia’s recent history.

CORNERED IN MOLENBEEK THE CORPORATE 2018, Belgium, 55 min COUP D’ÉTAT Director: Sahim Omar Kalifa

2018, Canada/USA, 90 min Director: Fred Peabody

How is life within the European «Capital of Jihad»?

The erosion of democracy for the benefit of corporations.

The Brussels neighbourhood of Molenbeek has become infamous after several terrorist attacks in Europe were connected to the predominantly muslim Molenbeek residents, dubbed «A breeding ground for terror». Through the microcosmos of a corner barbershop, the documentary shows us what ordinary life in Molenbeek looks like, what concerns, conversations and frustrations take place in a stigmatized population, trying to grapple themselves with what is happening in their midst.

In a time where big corporations acquire an increasing amount of power through both corruption and lobbyism, democracy itself is at stake. Through philosophers, journalists, politicians and activists the documentary argues that there has been a silent coup d’état over the last 30 years. The coup is facilitated by corporate interests that see the democratic system as a secondary product of the free market. The power of the people has become powerlessness, and the election of president Trump is one of the consequences. But what is the solution?

Brussel-nabolaget Molenbeek har blitt kalt «et arnested for terrorisme» etter flere terrorangrep i Europa har blitt knyttet til Molenbeek-beboere. Gjennom mikrokosmoset i en barbersalong får vi se hvordan dagliglivet hos den muslimske befolkningen i Molenbeek foregår, hvilke bekymringer, samtaler og frustrasjoner som utspiller seg i en stigmatisert befolkning som selv prøver å forstå og håndtere det som har hendt.

I en tid hvor store selskaper tilegner seg stadig mer makt gjennom både korrupsjon og lobbyisme, er det selve demokratiet som står på spill. Dokumentaren argumenterer for at det har foregått et stille statskupp i USA de siste 30 årene. Kuppet fasiliteres av private næringsinteresser som ser på det demokratiske systemet som et sekundærprodukt av det frie markedet. Men hva er løsningen?

2018, USA, 128 min Director: Michael Moore I samarbeid med Kosmorama

2018, Portugal/Hungary, 82 min Director: Eszter Hajdú

How could Trump become the president of USA?

Xenophobia and election campaigns in a polarised Hungary.

Michael Moore, in his own signature way, attacks with humour and anger the American political earthquake of 2016, when what no-one believed could happen, happened. Moore examines not only Trump himself, but also the factors that led to his election- and the resistance that mushroomed in the aftermath. Leading us from corrupt governors to teenage protesters, water poisoning, misogynism, racism, elitism and greed, the documentary becomes a battle cry from Moore. It is not hope that will save the US, it is action.

An alarming portrait of the parliamentary elections in Hungary in 2018. The rhetoric of the ruling party is coloured by extreme xenophobia and conspiracy theories, wherein the elites are conspiring to destroy Hungary by swamping the country with refugees. On the other side is a somewhat helpless opposition trying to claim that Hungary needs to return to social democratic and solidaric politics.The documentary follows opposition politician and former prime minister Ferenc Gyurcsány, who leads the party Demokratikus Koalíció (Democratic Coalition) in a seemingly hopeless battle.

Michael Moore går på sitt sedvanlige vis, med humor og sinne, løs på det amerikanske politiske jordskjelvet i 2016. Moore går Trump etter i sømmene, men også faktorene som ledet til valget av hamog motstanden som vokste i etterkant. Dokumentaren er et kamprop fra Moore. Det er ikke håp som kan redde USA, det er handling.

THE LONELY BATTLE OF THOMAS REID

MATANGI / MAYA /M.I.A.

An Irish man firmly set on living life on his own terms.

Rapper, activist, designer, music producer, and the artist behind hits such as “Paper Planes” and “Bad Girl”: M.I.A is a superstar but not your average celebrity. Born in Sri Lanka as the daughter of a Tamil resistance leader, she experienced civil war first hand and fled to London at the age of 9. This highly compelling documentary explores how her roots have shaped her political and artistic ambitions and standpoints, not least against the genocide against Tamils in her home country.

2017, Ireland, 85 min Director: Feargal Ward

An original and poetic portrait of the Irish farmer Thomas Reid, whom the Irish state is trying to intimidate into selling his family farm, so the multinational company Intel can take over his land. But when should the needs of companies outweigh the rights of the individual? Alone in this battle, Thomas is fighting quietly, but uncompromisingly. A strikingly beautiful and moving documentary, which uses fictional elements when his isolated existence becomes invaded by authorities that want him gone.

Et originalt og poetisk portrett av den irske bonden Thomas Reid, som forsøkes truet av den irske stat til å selge sin generasjonsgård, så det multinasjonale selskapet Intel kan få overta tomten. Men når skal næringslivets behov overgå den enkeltes rett? Thomas står helt alene i denne kampen, som han kjemper stillferdig og innbitt.

MEETING GORBACHEV

MINDING THE GAP

2018, USA, 92 min Directors: Werner Herzog, Andre Singer

2018, USA, 93 min Director: Bing Liu

Two giants in a surprisingly emotional meeting.

A gripping coming-of-age story from the US working class.

The air is electrified when film veteran Werner Herzog sits down face-to-face with 87-year-old Mikhail Gorbachev. Usually sharp around the edges, Herzog betrays a great love for Gorbachev, the last leader of Soviet and the man behind perestroika and glasnost. Herzog shows us a man who is still pained by the failure of completing his vision of a reformed communism. With warmth and empathy the documentary takes us through Gorbachev’s personal memoirs, which are closely intertwined with the end of the cold war.

Det sitrer i rommet når filmveteran Werner Herzog setter seg ned ansikt til ansikt med 87 år gamle Mikhail Gorbatsjov. Den ellers så skarpe Herzog nærer en åpenbar kjærlighet til Gorbatsjov, Sovjets siste leder og mannen bak perestroika og glasnost. Dokumentaren tar oss med gjennom Gorbatsjovs personlige erindringer, som er tett sammenflettet med slutten på den kalde krigen. Tue 26th 20:00 Cinemateket Tancred + Debate after screening: Nabo med Russland- Da og nå.

This award-winning and exceptional documentary brings us right into the lives of a group of friends at the threshold of adulthood- and the director is one of them. Through several years we see how the experiences from their own childhood in a poor American city shape them as humans. In a circle of violent, alcoholised and distant parents, what role models do they look to, not to reproduce the same mistakes? The documentary provides us with a unique insight into what shapes our identity and our choices. The documentary is nominated for the Oscar for best documentary.

THE PANAMA PAPERS

THE RAFT

2018, USA/ UK, 100 min Director: Alex Winter

2018, Sweden/Denmark /Germany/USA, 97 min

The biggest leak in history that brought down heads of state.

Can 12 people on a raft across the Atlantic be the key to world peace?

If journalism is in crisis, then the Panama Papers project is its saviour. When 11,5 million documents were leaked from an Panamanian law firm, incriminating world leaders for tax evasion, the journalists receiving it knew the material in the Panama Papers was explosive. They set up a global cooperation. 376 investigative journalists came together and cooperated on the largest coordinated story in history, which brought thousands of people to the streets, and quite a few leaders to prison. This fastpaced documentary tells this thrilling story from the perspective of the journalists.

Why does violence and conflict occur between people? That is what the Mexican social anthropologist Santiago Genovés wanted to find out. In 1973 he gathered eleven persons, placed them on a raft, and sailed across the Atlantic. With people trapped together with no escape, Genovés thought he´d find the key to violence and conflict. 101 days later, the raft arrived in Mexico, but the experiment had turned to something completely different. With humour and thoughtfulness the documentary lets us meet the participants 43 years later, where they reflect on what really happened during this extreme experiment.

Da 11,5 millioner dokumenter lekket fra et advokatfirma i Panama, som beviste skatteunndragelse blant verdens mektigste, visste journalistene som mottok dokumentene at materialet var eksplosivt. Denne dokumentaren forteller den nervepirrende historien fra journalistenes perspektiv. Mon 25th 19:00 Vega Scene Kino EN + Festival Opening Sun 3rd 20:30 Cinemateket Lillebil

QUIET

2018, Sierra Leone/USA, 86 min Director: Arthur Pratt

2018, Norway, 7 min Director: Marianne Bundgaard Nielsen

The West African Ebola outbreak, as seen from the ground.

Quiet contains fragments from childhoods in dysfunctional families, where children are neglected by their caretakers. Children often protect their adults out of loyalty, and the feeling of responsibility and fear of threats make them quiet.

Sierra Leone was one of the countries hit the hardest during the 2014 Ebola outbreak. A local collective of filmmakers followed the outbreak closely, and the documentary is an intimate and sober account of what the crisis looked like on the ground. We meet health workers who risk their own lives to help locals who are sceptical of the health authorities, and who don’t understand the gravity until they loose their lives. They tell their own story of Ebola, and give us the opportunity to understand how you survive such a nightmare, as an individual and as a society.

Sierra Leone var et av landene hardest rammet da Ebola brøt ut i 2014. Et lokalt filmkollektiv fulgte utbruddet tett, og dokumentaren er et ujålete og nærgående portrett av hvordan krisa så ut på bakkeplan for de lokale helsearbeiderne.

EXTREMISM AND FREEDOM OF BELIEF IN PAKISTAN

22. JULI: SAMTALENE SOM SPLITTER OSS

The whole Western world rejoiced when Asia Bibi, after eight years in prison, finally was released and acquitted of her death sentence for blasphemy in Pakistan in 2018. However, inside Pakistan, extremists responded by turning the country upside down, threatening judges, the government and Bibi’s family, causing the Pakistani government to give in to the extremists’ demand to allow an appeal of the acquittal.

Høsten 2018 ble det lansert flere filmer om terrorangrepene 22. juli, og flere er i vente. Argumentene «vi må aldri glemme» og «det må aldri skje igjen» brukes som begrunnelse for hvorfor 22. juli settes opp på filmlerretet. Men hjelper filmene oss med å lege sår, tørre å snakke om årsakene til hvorfor dette skjedde og forsvare oss mot fremtidig terror? Eller gir de oss en falsk trygghet om at vi har tatt et oppgjør med terroren som rammet Norge? Vi retter blikket mot det som kameralinsen ikke har fanget opp. For syv år etter, er denne samtalen fortsatt vanskelig å ha.

NABO MED RUSSLAND - DA OG NÅ. DEBATT ETTER FILM

FREMTIDENS MIGRASJONSSYSTEM

Mikhail Gorbatsjov satt på første rad da Sovjetunionen gikk i oppløsning, og Russland stod igjen. I dag ledes stormakten av en president med store ambisjoner om å ta Russland til nye høyder, både ute og hjemme. Men om navnet og regimet endret seg, ligger én ting fast: Russland vil alltid være Norges nabo. Så hvordan forholder vi oss forskjellig til Sovjet dengang og Russland i dag? Var det farligere før enn nå? Forholder Moskva seg til omverden på samme eller en annen måte i dag enn den gang? Og hvilke erfaringer fra naboskapet med Sovjetunionen er det viktig at vi fører videre? Vi spør noen av dem som kjenner Russland best – da og nå.

Flyktningestrømmen til Europa i 2015 har satt sine spor. FNs migrasjonsplattform er et forsøk på felles tilnærming blant FN-landene til at større menneskemengder enn noensinne flytter seg over hav og landegrenser. Plattformen har skapt sterke reaksjoner. Men én ting er sikkert: Dagens system for migrasjon, asyl og flukt er under press, og nye løsninger må skapes. Noen ønsker migrasjonssentre og asylmottak i Nord-Afrika, andre mener tiden er inne for å danne et grenseløst, globalt samfunn. Hvordan ville vi skapt et globalt system for migrasjon om vi startet fra scratch, og hva er den ideelle løsningen for Norge og Europa?

THE CASE AGAINST RATKO MLADIC

The Trial of Ratko Mladic tells the story of what happened when the man responsible for some of the worst war crimes in modern history was brough to court. After living in hiding for 16 years, he was arrested and prosecuted by the Jugoslavia tribunal in The Hague. The documentary follows the five-year-long trial from both sides. It raises larger questions about the dilemma between justice and reconciliation, and about the international tribunal itself. What kind of justice can a trial achieve 20 years later? What is it like to defend and prosecute a man who has committed genocide? What can we learn from what happened in Bosnia in today’s world, where polarisation and politics of division is again on the rise?

RELATIONS WITH CHINA – STANDING GROUND OR GIVING IN? DEBATE AFTER FILM

LASTING PEACE IN COLOMBIA DEBATE + FILM

In director Lee’s film Letter from Masanjia, we are confronted with serious human rights violations. As China’s international prominence grows, the dilemma of balancing trade with human rights concerns have become increasingly difficult.

In December 2018, two years after the Norwegian-lead peace agreement between FARC and the Colombian government, the Truth Commission started its work. The search for truth is central to the settlement after more than 60 years of conflict. This work is essential for victims in order to continue their lives and create permanent peace. At the same time, the armed conflict is far from over. Colombia is now supposed to have peace, yet human rights defenders and members of social movements are killed in greater numbers than ever. Where does the peace process and the human rights situation in Colombia stand today? What implications does a Truth Commission have for a fair solution for the victims of armed conflict?

In 2016, the Vietnamese activist and blogger «Mother Mushroom» was jailed, and later sentenced to ten years in prison on charges of conspiring against the Vietnamese state. After she is put away, life goes on for her children, mother and grandmother, but in a very different way.

An architect and urban planner, whose pioneering work led her on a collision course with mafias and the local government in Karachi. Perween Rahman dedicated her life for the poor of Pakistan, and ultimately sacrificed her life or her work: She was shot dead on her way home in March 2013.

Debate Despite a significant economic growth, the human rights situation in Vietnam is deteriorating. The shrinking space for civil society implies arbitrary arrests and beatings of activists, as well as a strong censorship. A new cyber security law grants the authorities even further control. Business between Norway and Vietnam is significant. Are human rights taken into consideration when doing business? And are technological advancements changing the rules of the game to such an extent that we need to think differently in international relations?

Debate After a short investigation the police closed the case the day after the murder of Rahman. In 2019, Pakistan’s High Court will decide whether to reopen the case based on new evidence pointing towards land-investors and politicians in Karachi. How can the Norwegian government, civil society, media, as well as the Pakistani diaspora influence the human rights conditions and strengthen the voices of inhabitants in informal areas globally?

Liberal, democratic values are under attack from right-wing parties and populist movements in Ukraine, as in several European countries. Ultra-nationalist attacks on LGBT and women’s activists, and support for illiberal and anti-democratic sentiments are a growing concern. The illiberal democracy of Victor Orbán in Hungary and undemocratic developments in neighboring Poland may also have a negative influence on the situation in Ukraine. The ongoing conflict with Russia further strengthens ultra-nationalist sentiments. Will the liberal values of the 2014 Euromaidan revolution survive in the context of nationalism and conflict with Russia? How can developments in Ukraine be understood in the context of the nationalistic and protectionist discourse in Europe and globally? PANEL Simen Ekern, journalist and writer Oleksandra Matvijtsjuk, Human rights defender Olena Shevchenko, feminist and LGBTIQ activist Moderator: Aage Borchgrevink, Senior Advisor at The Norwegian Helsinki Committee

ALTA-AKSJONEN: 40 ÅR ETTER

Thu 28th 20:00 Vega Scene Salongen Debatt Fri inngang I 2019 er det 40 år siden samiske aktivister sultestreiket foran Stortinget som del av Alta-aksjonen. ”La elva leve” var slagordet, men saken dreide seg om mye mer enn elva. Det handlet om anerkjennelse av samer som et folk med rettigheter, og saken banet vei for samisk oppvåkning og ble et vendepunkt for norsk samepolitikk. Fire tiår senere har vi fått på plass lover og institusjoner som skal beskytte samiske rettigheter. Samisk kunst og kultur ser ut til å være mer populær enn aldri før. Samtidig viser uenigheter om reintallsreduksjon, gruvedrift og vindmølleparker at striden om naturressursene fortsatt pågår. Vi trekker linjene fra Alta-aksjonen og frem til i dag: Hva var målet til aktivistene i 19781981? Hva har skjedd siden da? Hvor står samekampen i dag? PANEL Aili Keskitalo, Samtingspresident Øyvind Ravna, professor i juss ved UiT, ekspert på samerett. Ole-Henrik Lifjell, leder av Sametingets ungdomspolitiske utvalg.

THE SELF-CRITICAL ROOM

PART I: DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKING IN A POST-TRUTH WORLD Thu 28th 17:30 Vega Scene Salongen Mini Lecture with Erika Balsom Free entrance

In a world that is increasingly polarized and popular trust in established news media is rapidly declining; How can documentary film makers keep their credibility? Erika Balsom will look back on the last 30 years of documentary filmmaking and the relationship between documentary film and contemporary art to see how filmmakers have met challenges like this before. Is there anything to learn from the past to meet the challenge of distrust in the age of Trump? Erika Balsom is a senior lecturer in Film Studies at King’s College London. Her most recent book is An Oceanic Feeling: Cinema and the Sea, and she is the co-editor of the anthology Documentary Across Disciplines.

PART II : THE RETURN OF POPULIST DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKING

Thu 28th 18:15 Vega Scene Salongen Debate, free entrance Populist politics and general distrust is on the rise and political propaganda mixed with alternative facts is infiltrating all parts of society, including the documentary genre. How can documentarians meet this challenge? Former Trump strategist Steve Bannon is an admirer of Michael Moore’s work and applies his documentarian techniques for his own political purposes. History has seen its share of propaganda films. Are we seeing a return of populist documentary filmmaking, and if so, how do we counter it?

YTRINGSFRIHET I KUNSTEN: EN ARMLENGDES AVSTAND, ELLER STATENS FORLENGEDE ARM? Fri 1st 18:00 Vega Scene Salongen Debatt, fri inngang

Kulturen er en sentral arena for politisk kritikk, og kunstnerisk ytringsfrihet er helt nødvendig for et fungerende demokrati. Kulturpolitikere må holde en armlengdes avstand til kunstnerisk utøvelse, og ikke la personlige og politiske preferanser styre tildelinger til enkeltprosjekter. Festivalen setter opp en forestilling av Ways of Seeing. Det har vært mye debatt rundt stykket, og i Oslo bystyre ble det framlagt forslag om å stoppe støtten til Black Box der stykket ble spilt. Debatten om ytringsfrihet i kunsten er derfor høyst relevant. Hvor går grensene og hvordan vi kan sørge for at ytringsfrihet i kunsten forblir sterk, uavhengig av det politiske klimaet?

Fri 1st 20:00 Vega Scene Salongen Conversation (after screening of Everything Must Fall and Whispering Truth to Power) Free entrance Hopes were high for a better future in 1994, when the Apartheid regime fell and the ANC and Nelson Mandela took office. Yet, today’s South Africa is the most unequal country in the world, according to The World Bank. Their report found that the top 1% of South Africans own 70.9% of the country’s wealth, while the bottom 60% only controls 7% of the country’s assets. Most of the people living in poverty are black. And most blacks are poor. Is this the legacy of Apartheid? What are the causes for the growing inequality? How does this play into politics? And how does it effect younger generations?

TIBETANSK MOTSTAND I KINAS HUNGARY 2019: ÅRHUNDRE. FILM + DEBATT FAKING DEMOCRACY? Sat 2nd 13:15 Cinemateket Lillebill Film + debatt

DEBATE AFTER FILM

Film: Fire Under the Snow 2008 / USA / Regi: Makato Sasa / 75 min

2019 started with thousands taking to the streets of Hungary in protests against an increasingly autocratic government. Victor Orban started his third consecutive term as Prime Minister when his party Fidesz won the parliamentary election in Hungary in 2018 with a big margin. His government’s strict policies on immigration and extreme rhetoric about refugees have caused alarm in other parts of Europe. After the elections, several changes have been introduced restricting among other things, media freedom and plurality. One law that has sparked particular opposition in the country is the so-called ‘Slave Law’, raising the limit of overtime hours from 250 to 400 per year.

I 1992 ble den tibetanske munken Palden Gyatso løslatt fra kinesisk fengsel etter å ha sonet i tilsammen 33 år. Fast bestemt på å fortelle omverdenen hva han har opplevd i fangenskap, lyktes han på mirakuløst vis å flykte til India. Filmen er et vitnesbyrd om det tibetanske folkets lidelser og kamp for rettferdighet under kinesisk okkupasjon. Debatt: Palden Gyatso besøkte Norge en rekke ganger, og i 1996 opplevde han sammen med flere aktivister å bli arrestert av norsk politi. Kinas president Jiang Zemin var på besøk, og det var forbudt med visse tegn og tibetansk flagg i Oslo. De som forsøkte å bryte forbudet, ble arrestert og satt i varetekt i politibiler. Hvordan vil situasjonen for eventuelle protester mot offisielle besøk fra Kina bli? Vi diskuterer dette i lys av erfaringer fra andre europeiske land og snakker med aktivister som var med den gang i 1996. Se panel på humanfilm.no RELATED EVENTS

Om den 60 år lange kampen mot sukkerindustrien. Sukker dreper oss. Så hvorfor fortsetter vi å spise det som ubestridelig er giftig for oss? Denne dokumentaren avdekker den mørke siden av sukker, sukkerindustrien og dens forkjempere.

Europe’s urban tourism is experiencing an unprecedented boom. But cities like Venice, Barcelona and Dubrovnik can no longer cope with the crowds and are on the verge of collapse.

Sun 3rd 14:30 Vega Scene Kino TO Film + debatt

Debatt På 1960-tallet betalte sukkerindustrien forskere for å «bevise» at det ikke fantes noen sammenheng mellom sukker og sykdommer som diabetes og overvekt. I stedet la de skylden på fett, så høyt sukkerinnhold i mat og drikke ikke skulle bli regulert. Slik kunne sukkerbaronene fortsette å tjene milliarder – på bekostning av folks helse. Hvor skadelig er egentlig sukker for helsen? Hvor mektige er sukkerlobbyen – og hvordan jobber de for å få i deg mer av sitt hvite gull? Og hvem gjør hva for å stoppe dem?

NOT PASSING WITNESS PHOTO EXHIBITION

All festival week at Cinemateket and Vega Scene Photo exhibition

Across the globe, artists are threatened and incarcerated due to their courage to speak up against their governments’ human rights abuses. What is it like to be imprisoned for raising your voice? How does censorship affect artists’ practice? Does it force them to silence, change the way they work, or give them more energy to continue their struggle?

Exhibiting the work of a Russian photo competition 2016—2017

Same country, yet two very different realities: As a Palestinian living in Israel, Dareen Tatour is faced with treats of long prison sentences. Israeli Einat Weizman is faced with censorship and public shaming. How do the two artists reflect on their collaboration and responsibility for each other?

These photographers were “Not Passing Witnesses”. Rather than simply observing and moving on, a Not Passing Witness, as defined by the competition organisers, captures the moment, preserving the truth and the rawness of events for years to come, the photograph itself even outliving the photographer.

PANEL Einat Weizman is an actor, director, playwright and political activist based in Tel Aviv. Director of I, Dareen T. Dareen Tatour is a Palestinian poet, photographer, and social media activist from Israel. Tried and convicted in 2018 in an Israeli court for publishing a poem. Moderator: Kristina Quintano, publisher and translator. RELATED EVENTS

I, Dareen T. p 65 Sat 2nd 20:00 Vega Scene Teatersalen

Seeking to highlight this generation’s human rights issues through photography, the competition is inspired by iconic photographs such as Jeff Widener’s image of the protester standing in front of tanks at Tiananmen Square in 1989.

The photographs are predominantly set in, but not exclusively, Russia. The exhibition combines the art of photography with deeply touching themes and issues ranging from sexual exploitation of African migrants in Russia, the challenges faced by campaigners for LGBT+ rights, demonstrations in support of worker’s rights, to social issues such as loneliness. The competition was organised by Human Rights House Voronezh, a member of the network of Human Rights Houses, and International Youth Human Rights Movement.

IMPACT AND REVENUE Hvordan tjene penger på impact-film? Mon 25th 13:00 Cinemateket Tancred Workshop for filmskapere En film er ikke stort verdt uten et publikum, sies det. Og for filmer med formål om å skape endring, gjelder det også å nå ut til riktig publikum. Kinofilmen utfordres i økende grad av strømmetjenestene.

I Ways of Seeing begir de seg inn i gråsonen mellom hva som kan være rett og galt, hva som er legitimt og illegitimt, og hva som er lovlig og ulovlig; både for staten og for individet. Med seg på ferden har de tidligere høyesterettsdommer, Ketil Lund, som ledet etterforskningen av den norske statens ulovlige overvåkning av venstresiden. Sammen med Ketil Lund og et høyt elsket spøkelse legger de ut på en reise gjennom maktens rotsystemer.

A documentary theatre work based on the story of Palestinian poet Dareen Tatour, who was convicted by the Israeli authorities for “incitement to violence” over a poem and two posts she published on Facebook. She held a long legal battle to prove that her poem and posts constituted a legitimate protest against the crimes of the Israeli occupation. In May 2018 she was convicted and sentenced to five months in prison. Einat Weizman, an Israeli Jewish theatre creator, famous actor and activist, met Dareen during her struggle and accompanied her. The encounter between the two created a special friendship that gave birth to the play based on the memoir Dareen wrote during her house arrest, her poems and thoughts, combined with Einat’s texts. Einat is facing the silencing and theatre censorship of her work, which attempts to bring the Palestinian narrative to the stage.

Einat Weizman Actor, director, playwright and political activist based in Tel Aviv. All her plays, performances and events are around documentary theater that is used as an investigative tool inside of the hidden spots of the Israeli apartheid. Dareen Tatour Palestinian poet, photographer, and social media activist from Israel. Following the publication of her poem “Resist My People, Resist Them”, she was tried and convicted in 2018 in an Israeli court for “inciting violence” and “supporting a terrorist organization”.

Sun 3rd 15:00 Vaterlandsbrua Carnival Parade KARNEVALET is a celebration of the multicultural society that Oslo has become and a protest against racism, islamophobia and discrimination. Art, creativity, freedom, diversity are vital elements for living in a vibrant democratic society. We are therefore inviting artists, activists, schools, organisations and every group or individual to gather around these values at fastelavn, the 3rd of March 2019 at 15:00, at Vaterlandsbrua.

We have also invited artists to make banners, costumes and other elements that you can wear, carry or interact with. THE STREETS BELONG TO US - SO LET’S TAKE THEM BACK AND USE THEM!

The carnival parade will move in one revolution (a full circle) through the city center symbolically connecting historical places and events of 150 years of the anti-racist movement of Norway, as well as events that have been key to establishing a multicultural society, based on the idea of equality, social justice, intersectionality and freedom for all. We move from Vaterlandsbrua through Jernbanetorget, Rådhusplassen, Eidsvolls plass, Youngstorget and back to Vaterlandsbrua. Back at Vaterlandsbrua, KARNEVALET will culminate into a street festival from 18:00 to 21:00, where everybody is invited into a new space with concerts, performances and food.

Exhibition: Marching towards a massacre

Jazz in Khartoum

Half a world away, crowds of heroic protesters are in the streets. They’re risking their lives while trying to topple a genocidal ruler. But world leaders are largely ignoring these brave protesters, increasing the risk that they will be massacred.

Wed 27th 18:00

Since December, ordinary Sudanese have poured out to the streets to join the “Sudan uprising.” Many have been killed by security forces, and hundreds more detained and beaten. These protests are unfolding in Sudan against the regime of President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide. The exhibition shows photos taken by protesters, using their mobile phones in thick clouds of smoke, tear gas and gun shots. Strikingly, they have captured it in an artistical manner.

KUNSTPLASS - CONTEMPORARY ART [OSLO]

Festivalutstilling Kunstplass - Contemporary Art [Oslo] Tue - Fri 12:00 - 18:00 Sat - Sun 12:00 - 16:00 Exhibition period from Feb 14th- Mar 27th Kunstplass har gleden av å presentere årets festivalkunstner, Victor Lind. Han har vært en viktig kunstpolitisk stemme i Norge siden 1970-tallet. I sine arbeider problematiserer han historieskriving, offentlig hukommelse og det kollektive minnet. Verket tar for seg forholdet mellom den jødiske dikteren Paul Celan og filosofen Martin Heidegger. Celan var sterkt påvirket av Heideggers skrifter og sliter med å forene sin beundring for Heideggers ideer om litteratur med sin avsky for filosofens nazistiske fortid. Møtene mellom Celan og Heidegger reiser påtrengende spørsmål om forhold mellom kunst, filosofi, politikk og etikk, som er aktuelle i Vestens situasjon i dag: Er kunst et uttrykk for filosofi? Bør en filosofi også vurderes etter sine politiske påstander? Kan filosofen forsvare det uhyrlige og samtidig være ‘stor’? Hvorfor leter poeten etter etiske svar? Det er 8. år på rad Kunstplass arrangerer en utstilling i samarbeid med filmfestivalen. 70   HUMAN IDFF 2019

KUNSTNERSAMTALE MED VICTOR LIND OG SIMON STRANGER Thu 28th 18:00 Kunstplass

Forfatteren Simon Stranger og kunstneren Victor Lind møtes til en samtale rundt noen av livets store spørsmål. Med utgangspunkt i Victor Linds utstilling og Simon Strangers siste roman Leksikon om lys og mørke vil de snakke om antisemittisme, hva som er rett og galt, etikk og estetikk, kunsten og livet. Simon Stranger ble i 2014 nominert til Nordisk Råds Litteraturpris. Leksikon om lys og mørke er hans femte roman for voksne og er fortellingen om Strangers jødiske svigerfamilie og krigsforbryteren Henry Rinnan.


SKOLEVISNINGER I flere år har festivalen i samarbeid med FN-sambandet vist aktuelle dokumentarfilmer for elever på ungdomsskole og videregående. Vi bruker dokumentarfilmen som en inngang til faglig refleksjon og nysgjerrighet rundt viktige og aktuelle tema som gir økt forståelse om FN og internasjonale spørsmål. Den kritiske dokumentarfilmen er det viktigste uavhengige mediet for informasjon om hva som foregår i samfunnet rundt oss. Det har skjedd en eksplosjon i produksjonen av denne typen dokumentarfilm i verden de siste årene. Vi ønsker at elevene skal få stifte nærmere bekjentskap med noen av de beste utgivelsene. Visningene krever påmelding. Påmelding er åpen for alle ungdomsskoler og videregående skoler, påmeldingsfrist er 22. februar. Deltakelse er gratis for FN-skoler.

Anote’s Ark 2018 / Canada / Regi: Matthieu Rytz / 77 min Thu 28th Vega Scene Kino EN

For innbyggerne i den vesle øystaten Kiribati i Stillehavet er klimaendringene så konkret som det kan få blitt: bølgene slår innover stuegulvene. Havstigningen er allerede så alvorlig at innen vårt århundre er omme, vil hele Kiribati stå under vann. Anote’s ark er en forbløffende vakker dokumentar som følger Kiribatis president Anote Tong i hans utrettelige kamp for å finne en løsning for sitt folk.

Minding the Gap 2018 / USA / Regi: Bing Liu / 93 min Mon 4th Vega Scene Kino EN Denne prisvinnende og eksepsjonelle dokumentaren tar oss tett innpå livene til en vennegjeng som står på terskelen til å bli voksne- og regissøren er en av dem. I en sirkel av voldelige, alkoholiserte og fraværende foreldre, hvilke forbilder skal de se til for ikke å reprodusere de samme feilene? Dokumentaren er et sjeldent godt innblikk i hva som former vår identitet og våre veivalg, og er nominert til Oscar for beste dokumentar.
