Broken is a film examining the force of an idealised, unrequitted, disappointed and unconditional love which always remains strong and overwhelming.

A plot as in Jane Austen’s novels but settled in the reality of the orthodox Jews from Tel Aviv. In the world of strict rules and centuries-old tradition.

The Rocket

dir. Kim Mordaunt; Laos 2013, runtime: 1:36

Laos has been presented as a wrecked country. This is a place suspended between the damages caused by the Americans during the arm conflict and the destruction in the name of progress caused by international concerns. Mordaunt tells the story of people who have modest needs and a little is enough to make them happy. But these are the people who have been most severly afflicted. Their pain and their tragedies mark all the corners of Laos with the bomb crater’s scars.
