Dir. Tommaso Ausili

During WWII, on their way to bomb northern Italy English and American pilots could see under them the roofs of the houses were, in fact, covered in white by the asbestos dust coming off the Eternit plant opened in Casale Monferrato in 1917.

Windmills
Dir. Roberto Niño Betancourt
(Colombia)
OIFF OFFICIAL SELECTION

Heron of Alexandria first invented the windmill on the first century AD in Greece. This world changing creation is the point of departure, for an observational documentary that reveals The Netherlands.

The journey evolves from purely natural environments such as the sea and the forests, to nature as affected by man by the exploitation of resources in order to guarantee his survival. The windmill becomes the main character of this documentary film.

The Human Experiment
Dir. Dana Nachman & Don Hardy
(USA)
BEST DOCUMENTARY
BEST ENVIRONMENTAL DOC

Narrated and Executive Produced by Oscar-winner Sean Penn, the film follows the high-stakes battle to protect our health from the thousands of untested chemicals in our everyday consumer products.

What if the greatest chemical disaster of our time did not involve oil spills or nuclear meltdowns? Instead, imagine much lower levels of exposure, inflicted over several generations and affecting every person on the planet. The result: rising rates of everything from cancer to autism to infertility. This is the shocking reality explored in The Human Experiment.

I Live For Art
Dir. Renee Slade & Ri Stewart
(USA)
BEST BIOGRAPHICAL DOC

A humorous, satirical and unique exploration of the creative process, told in a documentary style.

Musicians, Brian McWhorter, Mark Applebaum and Mark Gould leave the comfort of their respective disciplines, shed past traditions and previous solutions in the search of finding the creative spark.

Amit Goswami (Theoretical Quantum Physicist ) Michael Meade (Mythologist) and Elliot Rasenick (Events Creator) bring insights into the processes behind how humans coerce discovery from the depths of the unknown.
