What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film The New Ice Age

    An analogy between the dispossessed and the geography of social inequality, in Holland and in Peru. The filmmaker is the eye-camera that investigates the discrepancies of a heartless humanity and in that ethics and social demand, returns to the no-name and no-space people a moment of its own identity and truth. A place to live and be, a film of their own, for them.
