Invisibles

The Tribeca Film Festival is in full swing here in NY, and we just watched a remarkable film (actually five short films by five directors, produced by Spanish actor Javier Bardem in association with Doctors Without Borders) about invisible victims of conflict and disease in five different countries. This may sound depressing but the way the stories were handled really should inspire you to action. Two films that really stood out were one by Wim Wenders set in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and one by Spanish/Peruvian documentary maker Javier Corcuera (who also made The Back of the World and Winter in Baghdad, two memorable docs) that follows a group of Colombians returning to their land after being forcibly displaced by paramilitary groups. Here is the trailer of Invisibles – don’t miss it if you have chance to see it…
