Saturday 27.02 - We Love Saturday Night
We Love Saturday Night, we love it because of the good music and the relaxed atmosphere and we love it, especially if the wine tastes good. We love the Saturday night, but we hate the discos, clubs, techno music and all the noise around it. We love Saturday night when the DJ puts some Classical music on!
Doors open at 22:00

The Akha, originally from Mongolia, are an indigenous community in constant migration. Som Thone is a young Akha. When he was 22 years old he went to study in Vientianne, the capital of Laos. After finishing his studies he started working in the tourist office of Phongsally, the nearest city to his home village. We met there and decided to go on a journey to his native land together.
"Sometimes I'll be your guide, sometimes you'll be my guide" Som Thone
Doc, 52 min. Thailand, OmeU
The biggest tourist attractions in the north of Thailand are the indigenous communities that two decades ago fled Burma because of the violence and extreme exploitation from the State Peace and Development Council.
These communities are now obliged to maintain their traditions, so tourists,coming for a 4 village, 2 water falls and 1 elephants view package, can take pictures and film. These communities live under an lethargic and imprisoned identity after the Thai government realised that it benefits from this kind of human zoo.

Saturday 20.02 - 20:00 - Biting Song, Sound Performance with Projecto Gentileza
Gentileza is a sound art project developed by Sara Pereira, Catarina Miranda & Guests.
It started in 2005 and mainly consists in a long term research, relating sound,visual, performance and speech.
During our meetings we often cook or dig holes in Berlin.
The members of Gentileza shared a recurrent dream during childhood, of a dark abstract place with a spinning shape in the center, massive and white or luminous and immaterial. This landscape suggested a deep low pain, sometimes sharp and acidic, invisible. There was a continuous distant milky sound that would eventually
become incisive and close.
Sunday 21.02 - 17:00 - Documentary Film selected by Dídio Pestana
Frederico Lobo and Pedro Pinho
Documentary, 110", OmeU
In Arabic Bab Sebta means "the door of Ceuta", the narrow passage between Morocco and Ceuta.
From all over Africa there is an invisible current of people prepared to cross continents in the pursuit of a better life. They face deserts, mafias, thirst and hunger until they arrive at a wall of barbed wire or face a tragic water crossing.
Bab Sebta is a film that goes against that current, from North to South, visiting four cities, talking with these modern heroic nomads that run against the abstraction that we call border.
"We do not cross borders, borders cross us."
