"I Am Not Your Negro", dir. Raoul Peck, USA, France, Belgium, Switzerland 2016, 89'
In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book was to be revolutionary, personal account of the lives and succesive assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of this manuscript.

"The Peretzniks", dir. Sławomir Grünberg, Poland, USA 2009, 90'
The film tells the story of an exceptional family, which the 'Peretzniks' created for themselves in the heart of post-war Lodz, and which became perhaps even stronger because history made every effort to break it apart. 'The Peretzniks' addresses the complexities of Jewish existence in post-war Poland under the Communist regime.
