Once It Started, It Could Not End Otherwise | Future Shorts

an experimental film in English

Dir: Kelly Sears / US / 2011

Part disaster film, part Freudian animation, Once It Started... bears witness to a series of absurd and horrible disasters that strike an American high school, eerily mirroring larger political and social markers of the recent past.

SURVIVAL GUIDE (2014) Film

a narrative film in English

With a child-abductor on the loose, 11 year-­old Fleur must fend for herself when she is forgotten after a girl guide meeting on a chilly night in 1987.

Watch award-winning Annie Rutherford as Fleur ('Newcomer to Watch For' at the 2014 Canadian Film Festival) in Survival Guide. Part coming-of-age drama, part crime drama, this off-beat short is about being dangerously alone in the 80s. It's also a Bechdel-test-passer.

THE DOOR - Miu Miu Women's Tales #5

a narrative film in no language

http://www.miumiu.com

Link to 30 seconds trailer: http://youtu.be/PBtZ1ZwDRjA
Link to behind the scenes video: http://youtu.be/TzKBi0zU96I

The Door, by Ava DuVernay, the fifth Miu Miu Women's Tale, is a celebration of the transformative power of feminine bonds, and a symbolic story of life change.

The symbolic centre of The Door is the front entrance of the protagonist's home. As she opens it to greet a friend in the powerfully framed opening scenes, she is shrouded in an oblique sadness. "In the film, characters arrive at the door of a friend in need, bringing something of themselves," explains director DuVernay. "Eventually, we witness our heroine ready to walk through the door on her own. The door in the film represents a pathway to who we are."

Clothing is also a symbol of renewal, each change of costume charting our heroine's emergence from a chrysalis of sadness. In the final scenes, she takes off her ring, pulls on long, black leather gloves, and walks, transformed by the emotive power of the clothing, through the door.

Ava DuVernay was the first African-American woman to win the Best Director Prize at Sundance Film Festival, for her second feature, Middle of Nowhere, in 2012. The Door stars Gabrielle Union, Alfre Woodard, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Adepero Oduye and singer-songwriter Goapele.

Forget climate Apocalypse. There's hope for our warming planet | Jelmer Mommers | TEDxMaastricht

a talk in English

In the media’s version of climate change, the end is always nigh. But equating global warming with the apocalypse is wrong. In his talk, journalist Jelmer Mommers brings you the real story. The truth is more human and hopeful than fiction, because millions of people are working to end the era of fossil fuels, along with the violence and inequality that have accompanied this era from the beginning.

Correction 7 november 2016: there's an error in the slide titled ‘The top 10% of consumers emit half of the worlds carbon’. It mistakenly divides consumers in eleven groups of ten percent. The bar on the left is redundant. Data credit: Chancel & Piketty, 2015.

Jelmer Mommers is an investigative journalist specialized in the field of climate change and energy for the Dutch journalism platform ‘The Correspondent’. He focuses on the intersection between sustainability, culture, politics and economics.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
