Into Eternity delves into the world of nuclear waste and thought provokingly discusses the question "How can we dispose of a material which remains deadly for 100,000 years?"
Finland is currently building the world's first underground, permanent repository for nuclear waste, which is to be completed by the end of the century and comprises of a network of tunnels and chambers.
The film considers numerous arguments surrounding political, economic and terrorist issues regarding to nuclear waste.

The Start Up Kids

The film delves into the lives of a variety of young entrepreneurs and examines the mentality behind these crazy, yet wonderfully passionate people.
This incredibly powerful and emotion stricken documentary allows the viewer to peak into the mayhem and disillusion of the war on the drug cartels in Mexico.
Taken from two separate perspectives. Firstly, a group of American paramilitary volunteers who have single handedly experienced the deadly effects of the drug trade spilling onto their border.
Secondly, a modern-day vigilante movement called the Autodefensas lead by 'El Doctor' has taken up arms in order to protect and support local towns, where they believe that the governmental security forces have been ineffective and corrupted.
The film explores the motives and intentions from both sides of the story. Most notably is the general publics point of view, where pure bewilderment and in many cases a complete lose of hope for the entire governmental system has evidently changed the mindsets of people forever.
Joshua: Teenager vs. Superpower
Joshua is a modern day David vs. Goliath story which is yet to end. The documentary follows the student activist group Scholarism, which was founded by Joshua, in their fight against the implementation of Chinese national education in Hong Kong.
In 1997 the transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong from the British to the Chinese took place. China agreed to govern Hong Kong under the principle of "one country, two systems" and therefore Hong Kong would continue its capitalist system and democratic rule.
Joshua's generation has grown up under Chinese control but view their identities as "Hongkongers" and not "Chinese". During the Umbrella Movement in 2014, lead in tandem with Scholarism, Hongkongers stood up for their identity which is being leached in the direction of being absorbed into China.
With Joshua's name now blocked in mainland China from all social media search engines, the sense of scale could not be larger between Joshua and the Chinese State. Scholarism has shown people that through clarity of message, consistency of purpose and a sense of defiance that history can and will be made.
