Each spring artist Tom Phillips walks a nine mile circle taking photographs in 20 specific places. These photographs are, as far as is possible, taken from the same spot in the same direction with the same framing. The project was begun in 1973 and over the years some views have changed dramatically while others seem virtually untouched by time. The photographs when seen together reveal the quirky and sometimes inexplicable effect of human beings on their surroundings. The result is an eternal, evolving portrait of Phillips’ neighbourhood in South London.

Dr. Rutledge and his team take an in depth look into a disease that has killed more people than any disease ever known -- Malaria. They interview African, Indian, and US Governments, charitable organizations, scientists, politicians, doctors, clinics, victims, and survivors. They explore and expose the politics of domestic and international policies and find the evidence that the public never truly understood. What they find is astonishing. ..The greatest ecological genocide in the known history of man is laid bare -- the 1972 ban of an extraordinary life-protecting chemical DDT. This is politics -- the cold brutal crookedness that kills with a stroke of a pen. Shortsightedness of governmental and environmental policies is causing the deaths of millions and the suffering of billions. When the EPA, Greenpeace, World Wildlife Fund, and Sierra refused interviews, Dr. Rutledge knew he had touched a nerve...For businessmen and women to endorse and encourage alternatives while a safe and proven Prevention sits idle is like fiddling while Rome burns. Africa loses nearly 3000 women and children on a daily basis not to mention 12 billion dollars annually to malaria alone. The team discovers that malaria is completely preventable -- completely. These young filmmakers trek from R. Carson's SILENT SPRING to the dead silence of millions of corpses and billions of suffering ones. And, thirty plus years after the DDT ban the death toll is gargantuan. Is it a mere coincidence that deaths from West Nile virus, mosquitoes, and bedbugs are growing by leaps and bounds right here in the US?? ..This film is intended to go directly to you, the American people, with the certainty that it will dramatically open up a virtual blizzard of public debate. This is one film that is long overdue...

"A real gem, fusing interviews, analysis and some terrific animation into an intriguing whole that plays like an intelligent thriller. " - Variety..Nominated for the Best Documentary Award at the 2012 Goyas, this is the unbelievable story of Manuel Cortes, the ‘mole of Mijas’. When the Spanish civil war ended and the borders closed, hundreds of people were forced to go into hiding to escape Franco’s repression. They lived for decades, hidden under floorboards or in holes behind walls in their own home, knowing they could be discovered at any time..One of the most famous of these moles was Manuel Cortes, the former mayor of Mijas, Malaga. With the help of his wife, Juliana, he spent 30 years hidden in a small hole in the wall of their house. For the first year of his captivity, Cortes couldn’t even tell his daughter he was alive. He spent months watching her play, unable to even touch her...But this is not just a story about the Spanish civil war. It’s a story about survival and humanity. About the consequences of war and dictatorship. Beautiful animated sequences capture the drama of Manuel and Juliana’s story while archive and interviews provide historical context.
