The Gravedigger

Sylvie Benavides, 2007, France, 18 min

(In French with English subtitles)


Forty year old Gabriel is the father of a seven year old daughter - Alice.  His wife, Melanie, has left him for another woman.  When he receives the divorce papers, he loses hope of getting her back.  With the thought of losing his beloved Alice too, he loses control of his life, but to what extent?

7 Years

Bram Vergeer, 2007, Kenya/Netherlands, 26 min


Borders do not bound homosexuality, this is a fact of life that every community has to deal with. Kenya’s rapidly modernizing society is still heavily influenced by tribal, religious and neo-colonial values and practicing homosexuality is punishable with 7 years imprisonment.  7 Years explores the realites and history of this punishment and provides a glimpse into how gays and lesbians manage to live in this hostile environment. Finding a job, family relationships, going out and sex are daily issues Kenyan gays and lesbians must work through. From a pastor to a male sex worker, 7 Years gives a voice to a group of people who are accustomed to keeping quiet.
