Description: Whoever wanted a sex reassignment surgery in the 1950's should do so in Casablanca, at French gynaecologist Georges Burou's clinic, without fear of psychological examination. The French transgender singer known as Coccinelle was one of the first to test Burou’s services, and many others followed. Michiel Van Erp’s movie follows five girls who underwent surgery during that time, just before the sexual revolution and the Gay Liberation movement of the 1960's. Intimate interviews reveal their lifestyle, what made them change their sex, how it influenced their lives, and how they cope with the unavoidable ageing.

Description: We tend to see the forest as infinite, eternal. But this precious resource, once thought to be inexhaustible, is under threat. Forest Alert breaks through the silence and ignorance surrounding actual forestry practices and questions our collective responsibility for the destruction of Quebec's rich timberlands. The script is typical of acclaimed Quebec singer/songwriter Richard Desjardins: powerful words, striking imagery, paradoxes that challenge how our forests are managed. Opinions are firmly held and diametrically opposed. There are those who cherish this precious legacy and are worried about our exploitation of it. There are those, in government and industry, who swear that the forest will be preserved for future generations. Citing the concerns of professional foresters, the movie is a direct attack on the depredation of what could be a sustainable resource. Forest Alert asks the ultimate question: Are our forests in nice hands? In French with English subtitles.

Description: It’s a black-and-white record of European towns in the dark (2-5am), from Basle to Belfast.

The entire thing is underscored by a pretty ‘composed’ soundtrack, from quietly humming streetlights to reggae and the rumble of armoured vehicles in Belfast. A strange and remarkable combination of dream, documentary and science-fiction.
