Facing the Dragon

  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 20min
  • Directed by: Sedika Mojadidi

As the US withdraws forces and aid from Afghanistan, the Taliban regains their hold and the stability of the country's fragile democracy is unclear.

Afghan-American filmmaker Sedika Mojadidi joins two awe-inspiring women on the front lines: Nilofar, a successful doctor-turned-member of parliament, driven in her mission to secure peace and well-being for women; and Shakila, a top investigative journalist committed to exposing the truth about what is happening in her troubled country. Under increasing threats of violence, these two women are soon forced to choose between their sense of duty and love for Afghanistan, and the safety of their families.

The Feminister

  • 2018
  • Sweden
  • 1h 33min
  • Directed by: Viktor Nordenskiöld

This extraordinary portrait of politician Margot Wallström was shot over her first four years in office as Sweden’s Minister for Foreign Affairs.

A passionate advocate for a feminist foreign policy, Wallström proves a defiantly outspoken presence on the international stage. Her decisions – recognising Palestine as a state, calling out women’s oppression in Saudi Arabia – ruffle many feathers. Despite death threats and intimidation, she ploughs on and embarks on a highly competitive UN Security Council campaign.

While providing remarkable access to the corridors of power, the film does leave key questions unanswered (especially regarding policy cohesion, and how or whether Wallström succeeded in implementing policies that have advanced women’s empowerment). Yet at a time when so much of our political landscape is dominated by brash (male) egos, witnessing such a skilled diplomat’s intelligence and determination feels like a radically hopeful act.

MAP presents: Like An Angel Passing Through My Room

J: What time is it? Need to… A-M: Half-past five. J: Oh right, I think Kati has to swap the battery. Do you want to keep on talking? A-M: Do you feel like you’ve asked all your questions?

Jude Browning and Anne-Marie Copestake first met through an arranged ‘interview’ coordinated by MAP in May 2019. Their discussion centered around Copestake’s solo exhibition at The Cooper Gallery in Dundee, processes of working, and the role of the everyday in their art practices.

MAP brings the artists together again to host an event which shares material selected from the LUX archive and new work in response to this ongoing discussion. Working together and independently, the artists consider how different types of material leave remnants of a person's presence, for example, a song in a DJ -set, the tone of address in a personal letter, the quality of light at a time of year, an article of clothing as a stylised performance of self.

Take One Action: Grit

Dian was six when she heard a rumbling as an earthquake, set off by natural gas drilling in the area, led to a tsunami of mud hurtling towards her village. Ten years later, thousands of people in her community still seek reparation from the powerful mining company responsible for the damage. As a teenager finding her political voice, Dian has high hopes for Indonesia’s new administration – but she faces many obstacles on the road to justice.

Dian’s story epitomises that of many other indigenous populations rising up against the impunity with which large mining companies are destroying communities, cultures and the environment. While it exposes the links between energy companies and government – fuelled by bribes and political expediency – Grit is, at its heart, a rousing tribute to youth activism and to the role of education in empowering young women.

(Cynthia Wade & Sasha Friedlander | USA | 2018 | 81 min Indonesian with English subtitles) Screening with: Máxima (Mariel Sosa | Peru / USA | 2018 | 16 min)

Take One Action: Push

Landlords without faces, apartments without renters… Housing prices are skyrocketing in cities across the world, but incomes are not – pushing long-term residents out.

This is not gentrification, it is a relatively new economic reality: housing as a financial product, an investment of choice for corporate finance, a place to park money. More and more cities are servicing the wishes of global capital over the needs of most of their population. So how do we push back and reclaim the streets?

In New York, London, Barcelona, Seoul and Valparaiso, this incisive documentary by investigative filmmaker Fredrik Gertten (Bikes vs Cars, TOAFF15 ) follows Leilani Farha, UN Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing, as she meets with residents, mayors, campaigners and economists to reclaim housing as a human right, not a commodity.

BEYOND THE SCREEN We will be joined in conversation by Rhiannon Sims (Research and Policy Advisor at Oxfam Scotland), Lisa Borthwick (Senior Campaigns and Policy Manager, Shelter Scotland) and Lynn Williamson (International Officer, UNISON North Lanarkshire), to explore the factors fuelling the housing crisis in Scotland – and the many campaigns to address and challenge it.

Take One Action: The Prosecutors

Often considered collateral damage instead of a war crime, sexual violence has, for centuries, been instrumentalised to control and terrorise entire communities in conflict zones. Can we end the use of this insidious tool of war, and how effective are legal frameworks in prosecuting culprits?

Filmed over five years, The Prosecutors follows three lawyers’ fight to end impunity for sexual violence committed at times of war. Through personal testimonies and footage of courtroom proceedings, the film documents specific cases in the DRC , Colombia, and Bosnia Herzegovina. It explores, with respect and determination, what it takes for victims to obtain justice for crimes of sexual violence in conflict – whether committed by uniformed soldiers, paramilitary units, or a neighbour.

The Prosecutors celebrates the bravery of those who come forward, while demanding a wider framework of accountability.

(Leslie Thomas | USA | 2018 | 96 min | English / Spanish / French / Bosnian / Swahili with English subtitles)

BEYOND THE SCREEN Join us after the film to explore the work being done at an international level to establish a legal framework for the prosecution of crimes of sexual violence in conflict – and the key role played by women in campaigning and legislating for change. We will be joined at both screenings by Olaoluwa Abagun (Founder & Executive Director, Girl Pride Circle Initiative, Nigeria) and representatives from Scotland’s women’s sector working for feminist justice systems.

Tiny Souls

9-year-old Marwa is a lively, inquisitive child, whose interests revolve around playtime, school and her siblings. She and her family live in Jordan’s Za’atari camp, the world’s largest camp for Syrian refugees, and hope to return home soon.

The weeks turn into years, and all the while Tiny Souls documents Marwa’s day-to-day life as she blossoms from a cheeky child to a teenager, capturing the resilience and hopefulness of children displaced by conflict.

With her access to the camp often restricted, director Dina Naser provided cameras for Marwa and her siblings to film themselves, affording her protagonists a remarkable sense of agency in an environment otherwise cruelly lacking in autonomy. Her quietly devastating documentary, exclusively shot from the children’s perspectives, raises crucial questions as to what lies in store for their whole generation.
