The Boabab Boys
Film (Short and Drama) Writer South Africa, 1987: A story about three young punks who dare to be different in apartheid South Africa. The Boabab tree is a symbol of South Africa. It is known as the upside down tree. Adam, Ben and Francois are teenagers whose roots too seem to grow in the wrong direction. They are wannabe punks in a rural South African town that has no time for extroverted expressions of identity. In their eyes, the system slaps them down at every turn, in the form of their discipline obsessed school, hard-line church and unforgiving family life in a town where the rules of religion, respect and race are harsh, and harshly enforced. The boys have a dream. It is a dream that has made its way across the ocean, sneaking into their sleepy town on imported magazines and crackling cassettes. A dream of music, of Punk Rock, rebellion and revolution. A dream born in a place called London. Written by Nick Bain

The Man Who Knew Infinity
Film (Biography and Drama) Producer In the 1910s, Srinivasa Ramanujan is a man of boundless intelligence that even the abject poverty of his home in Madras, India, cannot crush. Eventually, his stellar intelligence in mathematics and his boundless confidence in both attract the attention of the noted British mathematics professor, G.H. Hardy, who invites him to further develop his computations at Trinity College at Cambridge. Forced to leave his young wife, Janaki, behind, Ramanujan finds himself in a land where both his largely intuitive mathematical theories and his cultural values run headlong into both the stringent academic requirements of his school and mentor and the prejudiced realities of a Britain heading into World War One. Facing this with a family back home determined to keep him from his wife and his own declining health, Ramanujan joins with Hardy in a mutual struggle that would define Ramanujan as one of India's greatest modern scholars who broke more than one barrier in his worlds.

Film (Short, Biography, Drama and War) Writer 'Ziu' tells the true story of Libya's quiet revolutionary-the unlikely hero of a free people to whom he first gave belief. Ziu was in many ways an ordinary man. A middle aged diabetic. A mid-level civil servant who had spent half a lifetime under Qaddafi, raising a family, going fishing with his friends. He was no extremist, yet on a quiet Sunday in February 2011, he took the family car, packed it with gas canisters and crashed it into the gates of the Katiba Military Headquarters - the key to Qaddafi's stranglehold on Benghazi and the South. Ziu gave up his life to blow open the compound gates, and the people of Libya did the rest, first in Benghazi, and in time, throughout the country. Written by Anonymous
