Cinémas hors circuits

 

Welcome to the Cinémas hors circuits site.

Dedicated to independent cinema, Cinémas hors circuits is a project to highlight the work of independent publishers/distributors, cultural activists without whom many films would have disappeared from memory. As active custodians of a significant part of the cinematic heritage, such publishers have to counter the blockbuster mentality of mainstream distribution and the concentration of distribution networks.

To enable both the general audience and professionals to discover the films such independent publishers promote, and to encourage debate around new challenges and opportunities in publishing, Cinémas hors circuits offers:

a portal for independent publishers
 
a fair: an event entitled Salon du DVD & des éditeurs indépendants de cinéma/The DVD & Independant Publisher's Fair which wich took place in Paris in 2008 and 2009, in Poitiers in 2010 & 2011.

CAHIERS DE MEDELLIN
Catalina Villar
Colombia, 1998
documentary

Medellin, too well know as the cartel’s city. An unbelievable level of violence. The suffering of the peasants chased off their lands, eaten away by war, overpopulation, unemployment. The first victims of this violence are the young children and the adolescents. Surviving is managed by trying to cling on to anything offering some semblance of peace: women (from families often reduced to their vestiges), school (bereft of means), the church (omnipresent). In a school run by quite a surprising teacher, adolescents attempt, try to write in their “Notebooks” the stories of their violent lives, to establish something they can depend on for orientation. Millerdad and Sandra, Maria-Eugenia and Doralba, Juan-Carlos and Camilo tell about their mother’s kindness, the absence of fathers, the battle to survive, and above all, childhood and the will to live.
