Winner of Best Norwegian TV Documentary 2009:
My Daughter the Terrorist (Min Datter Terroristen): The unique film from inside the Sri Lanka war zone- about two young women prepared to sacrifice everything for their cause.
USA vs. Al- Arian: This film is a story of a family caught in the paranoid atmosphere of post 9/11 America where it takes very little to be labelled a terrorist. The struggle of one man to prove his innocence is the story of a nation that seems insecure of how to react in a measured and just manner.
Peak Oil - Imposed by Nature: Shortly, the world will no longer be able to produce enough oil to satisfy demand. The consequences will be dramatic for everyone. See the film NRK television would not show, and learn about the energy emergency that is already upon us.
Also FOR SALE NOW online here:
Shadow Company: A film about how war has become privatised - the soldiers on the frontline in Iraq are as likely to be hired from security firms as they are to be conscripted soldiers from a nation sate. Who is profiting from this and how does it change the nature of war itself?
Hva Vet Vi Egentlig? The Norwegian version of the cult film: What the BLEEP Do We Know?! This is an entertaining and informative look at the fundamental questions of existence: Why are we here? What is reality?
