INVISIBLES

Large_film_12720632_photo1

Academy Award® nominated actor Javier Bardem teams with Doctors Without Borders to produce this powerful collection of short films from five internationally acclaimed directors. Each story sheds light on heroic, yet unsung humanitarian efforts to combat international crises, which have thus far remained invisible. In the documentary Bianca's Dream, Mariano Barroso introduces us to a woman in the Central African Republic suffering from sleeping sickness and unable to find the eflornithine injections she desperately needs. At the same time, we meet Alba, a Paris-based model who uses eflornithine to remove facial hair and has no problem finding it at any pharmacy. In Letters to Nora Isabel Coixet uses a narrative approach to explore the horrifying and deadly Chagas disease, a parasitic illness which affects 18 million people in the poorest areas of Latin America. With The Voice of the Stones Javier Corcuera shares a story of brave, yet tragic resistance to brutal attacks on rural communities by Colombian paramilitary groups. Fernando León de Aranoa tells the heartbreaking tale of the Night Commuters, a group of youths from northern Uganda who go long distances each night looking for places of refuge from the Lord's Resistance Army, a group that often kidnaps and brutalizes children, forcing them to turn into murderous soldiers. With Invisible Crimes Wim Wenders examines the shocking story of women in the Democratic Republic of Congo who, in the midst of armed conflict, are sexually assaulted at an alarming rate. Described as a story of stories, this important collection gives voice to those long silenced by international indifference.
