    The remarkable true story of refugee children who defy a regime with the help of a video camera. Burma is a death zone, battered by silent genocide and the longest civil war in history. Armed with a video camera, refugee students from Burma produce movies that become portals into the triumph and tragedy of their Karen people. Filmed over two years with original photography deep inside Thailand and Burma, this intimate journey examines war and hope through the eyes of children. This is their story...their words. And their dream for a better world.

            A nightclub with mysterious logos... a belly dancer playing with some golden veils... two acrobatic barmen...: a man, who looks very nervous, makes a proposal to a woman who's watching the show with a girlfriend: she will go to bed with him in an hour... The unusual adventure, described through the protagonist's memories, will end up in unexpected way. This short-film is a witty comedy that is focused on love. All characters (two men and two women) are victims of love, but each of them feels love in a different way. The film is a half-serious analysis of love through a non-consequential succession of ironic and paradoxical events (which is obtained by a non-linear editing). But every event is connected with each other by a hidden plot that will be revealed only in the end.

                      Whilst working as an optician during the 1970's George Chance develops an obsession: something that occupies every moment of his spare time for a whole decade. Through skills passed down from his father, George becomes the most accomplished photographer of the New Zealand falcon. He dreams of capturing his beloved falcons as moving images but, restricted by the cost of film equipment, he reluctantly gives up. Now some thirty years later the time has come to reawaken George's dream. At the age of 88 and going blind, George is being called upon one more time. In the winter of 2003 a film-maker from Scotland, looking to make a film on the New Zealand falcon, approaches George looking for advice; they quickly strike a deal. In return for George's help, film-maker Sandy Crichton will attempt to add movement to George's photographs. Set in commercial pine plantations, the film follows a remarkable wild population of falcons that have adapted to take advantage of this man-made habitat. Featuring completely new falcon behavior, and filmed over three breeding seasons, the film-maker gets ever closer to the falcons as he attempts to deliver his side of the bargain.
