After a long journey through space the last two believers are about to reach their destination. Ananda, the space archaeologist, hopes to prove that Earth is not a myth and that all mankind did originated from the same tiny blue planet - but mostly he wants to prove his colleagues and his father wrong and to make the biggest discovery in history. Yamaka, the outcast rabbi, is searching for something subtler. He believes that Jerusalem is not just a mystical idea, but an actual place, where he might find the feeling of holiness missing in his life. Together they followed the clues and arrived at their destination, but instead of a living planet and a holy city, they find only the fragments of what once was...

376 AD — a refugee crisis in the Roman Empire. The destiny of a Germanic family and its tribe reveals a historical perception on today’s migrational movements. Inspired by actual events. The summer of 376 AD. The Gothic female warrior Elja is forced to give in to the marauding Huns and to seek shelter for herself and her clan in the Roman empire. Once at the border they must wait for orders and provisions from the Roman authorities. Elja tries to understand the Roman plans in spite of the language barrier. Reluctantly Elja must hand over her sword as the Roman general Cossus tells her that, being a woman, she will never be accepted as a warrior in Rome. She feels helplessly at the mercy of her alleged allies and their laws. Why is she being treated like a prisoner of war? Why can’t she travel onwards with her clan? What will happen when the Huns reach their camp? The Gothic faith — and in turn Elja’s entire identity — is put to the test. When Cossus surprisingly calls upon the Gothic clan leaders, tempers reach their boiling point and the situation escalates.

The China Mission chronicles the efforts, adventures and experiences of Irish catholic missionaries in China between 1920 and 1954 - times of political chaos, famine, floods, civil war and world war. This is not a small story of isolated individuals; over four decades, hundreds of Irish men and women worked in social, pastoral and disaster relief services and were swept up in epic events at an extraordinarily turbulent but fascinating period of Chinese history. For example, the Yangtze River floods of 1931 killed an estimated 4 million people. It remains the greatest natural disaster in human history and Irish missionaries were heavily involved in the relief efforts. When the Japanese invaded China during WWII, Irish missionaries found themselves in occupied and unoccupied territory. The war wreaked a heavy toll in China but the defeat of Japan did not bring peace. The Chinese people endured civil war until Communist forces were victorious.  And there was to be no place in Communist China for the Irish missionary priests and sisters who had worked in the country for four decades. Mao Zedong declared war on religion and persecuted foreigners in particular. Foreign missionaries were arrested and imprisoned in harsh conditions. By 1954 all had been expelled. This film makes extensive use of rare archival photographs and film ‘ much of it never seen before. Promotional films made by missionaries themselves are featured alongside international newsreels which help set the political and historical context. The China Mission is an extraordinary story of cultural interaction, and commitment in the face of natural disaster and political danger.

This is the story of the men and women at the time of the German attack on Russia in1941. A small, lost unit of German soldiers is looking for shelter in a remote, snowy small village in the Ukraine. They got separated from their company during battle and now they are deep within enemy territory cut off from the German troops.The soldiers have to make a stop in the village in order to get provisions and transport so that they can join their troops again - maybe a very dangerous thing to do. HEAR THE SILENCE is a parable about the loss of innocence during times of war that results in brutal preventive actions. People get trapped in an unstoppable circle of violence.

A piggy pursuing dream in the big factory but in reality all efforts seemed powerless and even kill himself. The concept is inspired by the classic movies of the silent era, Metropolis and Modern Times. The title is coming from the song ‘Where have all the flowers gone?’. Original song uses the disappearing flowers, telling disappearing people in the war. Here is a symbol of piggy losing his mind in the city.

“Ayre” is a namesake piece. It’s also a message to “look up from the device and get back to nature and the Spirit” song. A band member commented, “We love cell phones and devices but there is whole world out there waiting to communicate with us, if we will just listen.” The Band loves to showcase the beauty of their state in their films and they are excited to demonstrate the strength of Utah’s diverse culture built around the blessings of freedom. When asked about the song’s meaning, one replied, “When you stand at the cliffs of Cedar Breaks… if you look up at night or down in the day, either way you can see millions of years in the past as well as the endless possibilities in either direction. You can look across the vast waves of green cedars that are now, and realize in the “Myst” of all that time that you have choices to make that will affect generations. You realize that you must step forward with meaning and intent.”

The music video “Fawn” is from Mira Wunder’s new single “Licht Aus” is centered around the theme of mother-daughter relationships. The video was shot with the Miscanthus field in the south of Germany, giving the historical look of an American plantation. This location itself, acts like a third character, giving the feeling of imprisonment and entrapment. The intimate setting augments the complex emotional world of a mother and her grown daughter. Only at the end of the film do they find each other, when the rebellious daughter breaks her self-built walls against her mother. They, for the first time, begin to pursue a common goal, symbolized by the common hunt for a chicken.

Whilst we remain safe and sound, watching the highest grossing cat fail compilation - all that is kept out of sight gets back to us in this consumerist nightmare. On a global playground, without bounds, the cat’s body is devoured, exploited and controlled - its fear of pain being stronger than its longing for freedom. Objects are fetishized and subjects made into things that are quantifiable and ready for use. They are the natural resources of a luxury they will never know. We are here because you were there — and waste is dumped in the ocean. In the end, bodies reveal the causes and effects of power, pleasure and hate.
