ECO DE FEMMES Six women, Zina, Cherifa, Halima, Fatima, Mina and Jamila, who live in the rural areas of Morocco and Tunisia share their dreams and their fight for emancipation through their work. They're connected by a common goal to achieve recognition for their professional identity and gender. They have created farming cooperatives where they combine their ancient knowledge with the development of new products for the local and international markets.

Carlotta Piccinini, born in Bologna on the 9th of August 1979. She's a director and visual artist. Since the beginning of her artistic career, she has been working across different areas, moving from video art and social documentary. That's how she combined her passion for Aesthetics and digital technology with her effort for the defence of human rights. To her, video art and documentary represent an area of constant experimentation, thanks to which she developed new stylistic and narrative codes and found visibility in different festivals, both national and international.

TO WORK IS TO GROW

TO WORK IS TO GROW Gerald, Ruben, Neysa and their friends are children and adolescents who work as wheelbarrow pushers at a market and as prayer boys in a cemetery in the region of Cochabamba in Bolivia. With their own labor union – the Bolivian working children's union UNATsBO - they will present their ideas and defend their right to work in front of the parliament, where a new legislature concerning working children is decided. "To work is to grow" presents some working children's opinion about child labour, but also these children's actual work. Work becomes a tool to empower and grow – through one's good as well as one's bad moments.

Léa was born in 1989 in Bern, grew up in the Swiss Alps where she enjoyed a bilingual education. She completed a Bachelor in Social Anthropology and Media Studies at the Unviversity of Basel and soon knew that she wanted to make films. During this time she travelled many times to Latin America for different reasons, among other to study one semester in Santiago de Chile. Léa completed a Master of Arts in Visual Cultural Studies at the University of Tromsø in Northern Norway with a fieldwork and a film about working children in Bolivia, which is her first film.

ROARING ABYSS

ROARING ABYSS If you go out around music bars and venues in Addis Ababa, you will enjoy a very characteristic scene, but if you want to get an idea of the different sounds from the country, you will get a very narrow view of it; in some places some Amhara or Gurage music may be found but ... what about the rest? There are more than eighty different nationalities and cultures spread all along the mountains, deserts and forests of Ethiopia. Nowadays many of the traditional instruments in Ethiopia have been replaced for electronic keyboards, and many local traditional bands have been reduced to a front(wo)man singing along to a keyboard which plays beats and melodies all in one. But there are still some musicians spread along the country playing the music they learned from their fathers and mothers; intruments like the Krar, Washent, Masinko or Kabero, are nowadays roaring and bouncing against the hills of this land full of contrasts and diversity. In order to unveil the music universe and keep a record of this endangered music tradition, the Roaring Abyss team spent two years performing field recordings around every corner of Ethiopia, documented in this audiovisual poem.

Quino Piñero is a sound engineer and film maker who started his nomadic life at the age of nineteen, always carrying his audio recorder and camera, hence has his work the personal signature of a sound journey, both on music albums and audiovisual pieces. Nowadays Quino Piñero is based in London working as a live sound engineer, while developing new documentary projects through his audiovisual platform SolySombra Recordings.
