“Our mandate for this 2012 is to explore deeply this theme using the cinematic power as we bring different images from different parts of the world to really empower our sense of seeing, feeling and belonging as citizens of this planet earth as human being with all what surrounds us
We want to explore other places, spaces, civilization and cultures so we can find the commonality of our own identity as human being of this small planet we all live in despite the challenges of famine, conflicts, recession and uncertainties surrounding this 21st century. The hope is that, we are still here and we have the brain and power to change things and see things differently despite it all!
