- Cowspiracy (2014)
« Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a 2014 documentary film which explores the impact of animal agriculture on the environment, and investigates the policies of environmental organizations on this issue. The film looks at various environmental concerns, including global warming, water use, deforestation, and ocean dead zones, and suggests that animal agriculture is the primary source of environmental destruction.
The Union of Concerned Scientists has disputed the film’s assertion, which runs counter to scientific consensus, that the majority of greenhouse gases driving climate change are produced by animal agriculture rather than fossil fuel emissions. The filmmakers, in turn, disputed this response. »

She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the UN, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers. »

« When feminist filmmaker Cassie Jaye sets out to document the mysterious and polarizing world of the Men’s Rights Movement, she begins to question her own beliefs.

The Red Pill challenges the audience to pull back the veil, question societal norms, and expose themselves to an alternate perspective on gender equality, power and privilege. »

« The Egyptian Revolution has been an ongoing rollercoaster over the past two and a half years. Through the news, we only get a glimpse of the bloodiest battle, an election, or a million man march. At the beginning of July 2013, we witnessed the second president deposed within the space of three years. The Square is an immersive experience, transporting the viewer deeply into the intense emotional drama and personal stories behind the news. It is the inspirational story of young people claiming their rights, struggling through multiple forces, in the fight to create a society of conscience. »

- 475: When Marriage Becomes a Punishment (2013)
- 475: Trêve de Silence (2013)
« Dans la ville de Casablanca, Hind Bensari réalise un web-documentaire évoquant la question du viol et sa perception par la société marocaine, hommes et femmes confondus, jeunes et moins jeunes. Alors qu’un premier web-documentaire 475 : When marriage becomes a punishment, traitait de l’affaire Amina Filali, jeune femme de 15 ans violée et mariée à son violeur, ce deuxième film analyse le même phénomène, cette fois de manière plus générale, avec de nombreux témoignages, notamment de victimes, de chercheurs, de lycéens, et autres. Hind Bensari, montre ainsi les contradictions dont souffre notre société, la punition qu’elle inflige aux victimes de viol à travers des témoignages poignants, souvent inattendus… Elle met également en relief l’obsolescence de la justice marocaine. »
