Features parts of ‘Lila’ by Project 5am

Aus Abfallprodukten der Forschung entstand Algaemy: die Gewinnung von Farbpigmenten aus Algen. Bei Experimenten mit diesen Pigmenten entdeckten die Designerinnen Essi Johanna Glomb und Rasa Weber, dass die Algenfarben sich mit der Sonneneinstrahlung veränderten und durch Überlagerungen miteinander reagierten. So entwickelten sie eine biodynamische Farbpalette, deren Farben sich mit der Zeit verändern.

Three Boys at Lake Tanganyika

A lazy sailor at Heart

Among different background of economic and religion networks in Mae Sot district, a city along Thailand-Burma border, ‘Michael Right’ and Yameen ‘Michael Muhammad’, two Rohingyas have been struggling for their livelihood. At the same time they have attempted to maintain Rohingya’s identity which is perhaps never static. The two Michaels have the same ethnics but different economic status and background. The story takes place in the heart of Mae Sot and Umpiem Refugee camp. Yameen Michael’s perspectives of the long-term residents in Mae Sot whose growing cross-border businesses depend largely on their religious networks (Rohingya and Muslim), while Michael Right fled away from the Motherland for nineteen years, but now he has been still waiting for beginning his new life in somewhere. By juxtaposing two different lives, how the two stateless men have tried to seek ‘identity’ that others accept. Although both migrated since a long time ago, but did not belong to any place; State of Thailand or Myanmar. While citizenship brings one outside the fence, another one without citizenship tried to grab it all the time. Even the religious space that both of them are Rohingya Muslim, but the social capital is positioning them differently. Identity of diaspora are always been fractional and they are trying to negotiate with the situation in their everyday life.

The trailer for Who Am I To Stop It

Who Am I To Stop It is documentary about the traumatic brain injury community made by a filmmaker with disabilities from brain injury. It follows three artists as they navigate social isolation, stigma, and rebuilding their identities. They practice the arts to re-connect to their own sense of self-pride and to their larger communities. Rather than emphasize how people got injured or highlight medical aspects of disability, we explore consequences of internalized ableism and the ways in which many brain injury survivors feel they are not accommodated or understood. Through visual arts, music, and sharing their stories, the subjects explore questions around poverty, sexuality, faith, family, success, and community.

This film contains mature themes and adult language.

The documentary weaves together three distinct stories that cross age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, class, family support, and disability. Despite their different life contexts, the film reveals how brain injury survivors are complex, dynamic people with creative drive and agency. In the film, we witness interruptions to career plans, relationships, education, and family ties. Likewise, the viewer celebrates a sense of accomplishment as all three subjects present their art publicly for the first time with their new identities as peers with brain injury. Each subject proactively works to challenge their own and others’ views of their worth and value by creating and sharing their art. By emphasizing daily life and storytelling over expert interviews, viewers are invited to question their assumptions about people with brain injury and what role the community can play in ending stigma and unlearning ableism.
