4960

a narrative film in Croatian

Aida and Jozef try to communicate past the distance from Point A to Point B - an exposed space, clearly visible to snipers, prevents them from doing so. Award-winning short film 4960 earned Jury comments: "Brutal, riveting, fearless...profound depiction of human hunger for connection, scathing social commentary...dead on convergence of ethics and aesthetics."

The Five Phrases That Can Change Your Life: Adam Braun at TEDxColumbiaCollege

a talk in English

Adam Braun is the Founder and CEO of Pencils of Promise, a nonprofit organization that
has broken ground on more than 80 schools around the world and delivered over 3
million educational hours in its first four years. PoP was founded with just $25 in October
2008 using what Braun describes as a "for-purpose" approach to blending nonprofit
idealism with for-profit business principles.
Braun's passion for international education was ignited when he traveled to over fifty
countries in his early twenties. He graduated magna cum laude from Brown University,
previously worked at Bain & Company, and was recently named to Wired's Smart List:
50 People Who Will Change the World.

This speech was given at TEDxColumbiaCollege in November of 2012, on the campus of Columbia University in the City of New York.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

"The Return" by Karl Lagerfeld - The Film

a narrative film in English

In December 1953, Coco Chanel began her incredible return to center stage. The designer reopens her Haute Couture house after fifteen years of absence. The collection is welcomed by the French press with an icy silence. Only the American media supports the looks that define the rebirth of Chanel's style. "The Return" retraces this determining period, that shaped the legend of the designer of rue Cambon forever.
"The Return," imagined, written and directed by Karl Lagerfeld, features Geraldine Chaplin in the role of Gabrielle Chanel, Rupert Everett, Anna Mouglalis, Lady Amanda Harlech, Arielle Dombasle, Kati Nescher, Vincent Darré and Sam McKnight.
