1. "A Passage" (2019)
Pejvak (Rouzbeh Akhbari and Felix Kalmenson)

17 min
Språk: armeniska, ryska, engelska undertexter

A Passage is a film which tackles the political economy and social ecology of border infrastructures in Southern Armenia. It looks at how processes of rapid militarization and neoliberalization have restructured these borders, namely the recent erasure of the historic Yerevan-Baku Railway; and the upcoming construction of an industrial Free Economic Zone planned precisely where the removed train infrastructure was housed.

A Passage is a hybrid mixed genre vision generated in the sun-scorched valleys of Southern Armenia's Meghri region. Giving equal weight to gossip and myth as it does to factual events, A Passage meanders through dense sediments of history with the evacuated linkages of the Yerevan-Baku Railway as its guide, towards a future of Free Economic Zones and uncertainty.

2. "Flyktingen av den sorgliga skepnaden" (2015)
Paula Urbano

44 min
Språk: engelska och svenska

What would it be like to come to Sweden as a refugee today? That was the question the artist Paula Urbano asked herself 2013 when starting to work on the film The Refugee of the Sorrowful Figure.

Since being the child of political refugees raised in Sweden herself she did inherit refugee status when growing up and she wanted in the film investigate the first hand experience in the Sweden of today (2013). Urbano takes part in the film as the narrator and squire in reference to Don Quixote’s Sancho Panza and follows the Refugee’s hopefulness, sadness, frustration and despair from Flen and Eskilstuna to Baghdad and Teheran.
