Only the Devil Lives Without Hope

Magnus Gertten

Thriller-like, emotional documentary about Uzbek woman Dilya, who never loses hope fighting for the release of her imprisoned brother Iskandar.

Wood

All over the world, billions of dollars are made from illegal wood logging. Alexander von Bismarck, director of the American NGO Environmental Investigation Agency, spent many years exposing this crime.

Through their detective work, Von Bismarck and his team amass heaps of evidence of the illegal destruction of the world’s forests.
