2011 Collection

Six films, six points of view, six different worlds.
The third DVD from the Île Courts collection features the work of eight young Mauritian film makers who have participated, in October 2010, to the Écrire court (script writing) and Notre histoire n’a pas d’images (documentary) workshops.
Île Courts carries on the training work in writing and film making started in 2007. By doing so, we want to support the emergence of new talents and the development of an independant cinema, peculiar to our island, and to allow these films to travel beyond our coasts towards other audiences.
