This documentary follows the journey of ANZAC soldiers in the 1990s as they land unarmed in the heat of a decade-long civil war. Using only the weapons of music, Maori culture and love, the soldiers must work together to create peace on a ravaged Pacific Island. This film shines a light on the story of Bougainville’s unsung heroes and their very own “mission impossible”.

When a trans sister, January Marie Lapuz, is brutally murdered in her own home, her community comes together to voice their issues, concerns and challenges. My Name Was January is a memorial of January’s life and light, a call for justice for January and trans women of colour everywhere, and a refusal to lose another sister to transmisogynistic violence.

Just as a revolution breaks out in Egypt, his plane is rerouted to a country he's never heard of before: the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. It all goes awry when he loses his passport and is mistaken for a refugee, forcing him to navigate an absurd tangle of eccentric characters and events. The colourful film shows Samir’s adventures and new encounters on the way to recover his identity.
