Hayachine no Fu

Iwate Prefecture, Ohasamacho. In the foothills of Mt. Hayachine, the kagura (devotional dance) offered to the mountain goddess by the mountain priests is still performed today nearly unchanged from mediaeval times. This dance, which has been handed down along several lines of succession in the villages of Take and Otsugunai, has its origins in prayer. Take’s kagura and Otsugunai’s kagura are said to be closely related. The film shows the people who lovingly continue to perform these two types of dance and the transition from ancient tradition to modern life. Even from the first moment that director Haneda was charmed by Hayachine’s kagura, the mountain villages that were home to the gods had already begun to disappear

Hungary could have been the happiest barracks under socialism only because, with the involvement of the Colombian drug cartel, it smuggled several tons of drugs into the United States every year. The Hungarian mafia from Los Angeles was also actively involved in the distribution of the drug methaqualone produced in Újpest. Since the psychotropic drug, also known as Quaalude, generated millions of dollars in profit for the comrades on the Danube, Budapest used this amount to feed the population, plug the budget deficit and build hotels. Of course, it didn't take long for the American Drug Enforcement Administration, DEA, to eavesdrop on the action and blackmail the People's Republic of the Carpathian Basin.

Tony Robinson and the team present a radical picture of the British Iron Age, by concentrating on its charismatic hill forts. This period was virtually ignored by antiquarians, who assumed the structures related to the Roman conquest of Britain. Nevertheless, many of the tracks, boundaries, ditches, and hill defences are still visible or in use today. Modern archaeologists like Barry Cunliffe, Mike Parker Pearson, and J.D. Hill have thrown new light on structures such as Maiden Castle and Danebury, suggesting their function was social and religious rather than military.

When Post Office subpostmasters up and down the country started to experience big shortfalls in their accounts, Post Office assumed they were stealing the money and prosecuted them. Hundred were given criminal convictions and many were sent to prison. Lives, marriages, reputations – all ruined. The shortfalls were in fact, a result of errors in the Post Office’s own IT system, known as Horizon. It was something the Post Office had always denied. For over twenty years, former subpostmaster Alan Bates has fought tirelessly for justice for all the subpostmasters who were so poorly treated by the brand they had loved. This is his story.

In 1933, at age 33, Harry Alan Potamkin died of complications related to starvation, at a time when he was one of the world's most respected film critics. In his writings, he advocated for a cinema that would simultaneously embrace the fractures and polyphony of modern life and the equitable social vision of left radical politics. This film-biography is assembled out of distorted fragments of films on which he had written, an impression of erupting consciousness.

It covers the migration of the Slavs onto the territory of the current Slovenia, their dwellings and farming methods, the appearance of castles and towns, peasant revolts, the formation of Slovene language. There are few archeological finds, frescoes or books bearing witness to this time, so the film also makes use of animations and reconstructions of farming and handicraft tasks.

The paper went bust in June 1987, its demise mirroring the demise of the Left in the late 1980s.

Based on the struggle of young people in Goma (Northeastern Congo) against the prevailing Western reporting about war and misery, Stop Filming Us investigates how these Western stereotypes are the result of a skewed balance of power. Stop Filming Us creates a cinematic dialogue between Western perceptions and the Congolese experience of reality. While the Congolese perspective becomes increasingly clearer in the film, questions arise about the perspective of the film itself; is a white director able to make a film about the new Congolese image or is it primarily a story created by his own Western perspective?

Presented by Eric Knowles, this fascinating program shows how the historic home was brought back to life in time for its opening to the public. 78 Derngate is a Georgian house in Northhampton, England, originally built in the 1820s. In 1916, the house's new owner commissioned Mackintosh to renovate the rather pokey and old-fashioned interiors into a modern and convenient home. The work was conducted from 1916 to 1917, and architectural historians consider the resultant interiors one of this period's most important works. "The House That Mackintosh Built" was originally a 15-episode half-hour series broadcast on Discovery Home and Leisure in 2003. The commercial DVD release has been edited into a single 93-minute program.

The flag, situated in what is officially understood under international law to be ‘Turkish occupied’ northern Cyprus, is accompanied by the legend ‘Ne mutlu Türküm diyene’ (‘How happy is he who can say “I am a Turk”‘). The statement, a quote from the founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, is clearly legible from the south of the city and its surrounding countryside.

After André Levesque missionnaire, Oksana Karpovych is back at the RIDM with her first feature, which she filmed in her native country, Ukraine. To take the pulse of the country, the filmmaker adopts one of documentary cinema’s most prolific sub-genres: the train film. Filmed entirely in the old, run-down, overcrowded passenger trains used by ordinary Ukrainians, the film captures conversations, observes the landscape, and accompanies several protagonists on their journey; they open our eyes to popular preoccupations in a country that seems perpetually anchored in its highly visible Soviet legacy. A fine lesson in listening and humanity.
