International Freethought Film Festival

The International Freethought Film Festival is hosted by the Freethought Film Festival Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, educational organization promoting reason, critical thinking and freedom of inquiry through the medium of film. The biggest project to carry out that mission is the production of the International Freethought Film Festival; an annual event that features independent films submitted by filmmakers. The film festival is a celebration of having the basic human right to express freethought concepts, and to educate the public on the importance of using reason, critical thinking and science (void of superstitions) to explain the natural world and improve upon the human condition. The Call for Submissions for the first season is open, and entries can be narrative, documentary and animations for features and short films alike.

Another Planet

user
Director: Ferenc Moldovanyi.
“Expanding upon themes he explored in Children: Kosovo 2000 (SDFF 24), Ferenc Moldoványi’s latest documentary is at once hypnotically beautiful and acutely disturbing. Shot over a two-year period in four countries on four continents—Ecuador (South America), Mexico (North America), Democratic Republic of Congo (Africa), and Cambodia (Asia)—Another Planet unfolds as a cinematic tone poem in the tradition of Koyaanisqatsi, exposing the unequal distribution of wealth around the world as a major humanitarian crisis. Framed by pastoral sequences in which a Tarahumara shaman imparts a dream of paradise on earth, the film moves quickly and seamlessly between the lives of seven children inextricably linked by their shocking and tragic experiences of daily exploitation and abuse. We meet lonely, aimless urchins, barely eking out a living on the streets. We see child laborers toiling in brick factories, garbage dumps, and brothels, only to be beaten when business is down. And perhaps most harrowing of all, we get to know the child soldiers of Congo as they are turned into killing machines. Throughout this journey, Moldoványi’s unwavering vision reminds us of the eternal coexistence of beauty and horror all over the world. Informed by the haunting cinematography of Tibor Máthé as well as Tibor Szemzö’s ethereal soundtrack, Another Planet crosses cultural boundaries to forge a commentary on the human condition as damning as it is open-ended.” 31st Starz Denver International Film Festival Official Catalogue "This globe-spanning film hits hard on many levels—visually, intellectually, emotionally. Beautifully shot in Ecuador, Mexico, Africa and Asia, Moldoványi’s film presents images that sparkle in the eye even as they punch you in the heart. Moldoványi introduces us to children in Cambodia, Ecuador, Mexico and the Democratic Republic of Congo, each of whom is struggling to survive. Working long hours, often in dangerous and dirty conditions, these children show us a side of existence that many have never seen or even imagined. While many in the US hold childhood as a special and protected time of nurtured innocence, this film reminds us all that for many children life is a brutal and precarious game of survival. With subjects that include children scavenging dumps for recyclables, child soldiers and child sex workers, this film offers a sympathetic and unblinking eye. The children themselves are our strongest storytellers, and they open up to Moldoványi’s camera to give us their own perspective. Their frankness astonishes as they talk matter-of-factly about their jobs and the consequences of not earning. The children either are at the mercy of adults—often the parents who force them to work and beat them when they don’t earn enough—or have been abandoned by adults altogether. While the film is not a gentle journey, it imagines a better world, a greater one. The filmmaker relies on your humanity and empathy to be moved by these children, while never directly suggesting a call to action. This film offers an unprecedented opportunity to explore another planet, a trip definitely worth taking." SILVERDOCS: AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival

Truth Lies Beneath

Director: Gautam Sen.
It was the day of Deepavali, festival of lights… When others were busy in celebrating the sounds and lights of the festival, a girl named Mousumi Ari, of seventeen years of age, was being tortured in her in-laws house. She was murdered eventually. Mousumi hailed from the family of a poor fisherman in Narayanpur village, Kakdwip, 24 Parganas, India and was married to a boy of her village, at the age of barely sixteen. Her father-in-laws, Swadesh Ari was a home guard in the local Kakdwip Police Station. After her marriage she fell prey to the wrath of her in-laws and was subjected to torture regularly. On the day of Deepavali, she was murdered by Swadesh Ari and his family members. The administration not only remained mute. An unholy nexus of the police, hospital-morgue authority and legal administration tried to veil the culprits… to establish the murder as a case of suicide. They wiped out the trace of murder and twisted the events to suite their choice. Apprehending the caucus of some vested interested, Sukumar Sahu, Laxmi Sahu, the parents of Mousumi and their relatives did not cremated the dead body of Mousumi but buried it under the earth in quest of justice. The film depicts the victim’s voice, so far unheard and the experience of the rights activists stood by the side of the victim family…. narrating what happened actually and explores the eventually of Mousumi’s murder.
