Early in the 19th Century two families, the Allens and Kathans, settled in the Southern Adirondack Mountains of New York State. By 1960's their descendants had isolated themselves in a remote hollow high in the mountains. Below lay the great Sacandaga Valley. Its rich lands rapidly filled with farms, factories and mills. By the end of the century, the Allens and the Kathans had intermarried: all the residents in the Hollow were related. Because of their isolation, misunderstandings developed between them and the outside world. The economic disasters of the 1930s shut down the factories and mills. In 1932 the Sacandaga River was dammed, flooding the fertile valley below the Hollow. Forced from their homes, the valley residents sought employment elsewhere, but the Allens and Kathans chose to remain up in the mountains.

NR 90 min - War, Documentary - 23 november 2011

Five broken cameras – and each one has a powerful tale to tell. Embedded in the bullet-ridden remains of digital technology is the story of Emad Burnat, a farmer from the Palestinian village of Bil’in, which famously chose nonviolent resistance when the Israeli army encroached upon its land to make room for Jewish colonists. Emad buys his first camera in 2005 to document the birth of his fourth son, Gibreel. Over the course of the film, he becomes the peaceful archivist of an escalating struggle as olive trees are bulldozed, lives are lost, and a wall is built to segregate burgeoning Israeli settlements.

Director:  Emad Burnat, Guy Davidi

Chai Jing's documentary about the massive smog problem in China. Chai Jing started making the documentary when her as yet unborn daughter developed a tumour in the womb, which had to be removed very soon after her birth. Chai blames air pollution for the tumour. The film, which combines footage of a lecture with interviews and factory visits, has been compared with Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth in both its style and likely impact. The film openly criticises state-owned energy companies, steel producers and coal factories, as well as showing the inability of the Ministry of Environmental Protection to act against the big polluters.

Op de uiterste westkaap van Normandië, Cap de la Hague, leeft de 75-jarige Paul Bedel al zijn leven lang als boer, samen met zijn twee zussen die net als hij ongetrouwd zijn. Paul is zo krom als de bomen in het heuvelige land waar de zee wild omheen spoelt. Hij trekt in de ochtendnevel zijn karretje voort, met op de verre achtergrond de nucleaire centrale die veertig jaar geleden de streek voorgoed veranderde. Boeren verlieten de landbouw om er te gaan werken, maar Paul en zijn zussen bleven zaaien, maaien en cider maken zoals ze dat altijd al hadden gedaan. Nooit ging hij mee met de modernisatie, liever sleutelt hij eindeloos aan zijn haperende machinepark: een hooibalenmaker uit 1956, een maaimachine uit 1945 en een roestige dorsmachine uit 1937. Toch komt ook voor Paul eens het moment om te stoppen...
