63 min. documentary by Max Benyo.
Silvia Sempeyu belongs to the Maasai tribe. She and her five children are living in a wooden hut, close to frontier between Tanzania and Kenya.
Despite a number of heavy personal strokes of fate, Silvia has made it her mission to fight for the rights of Maasai women in her region. This fight for equality between men and women clearly collides with the traditions of her tribe, and evokes aggressive reactions among men – and women. Not least she had to fear for her life and that of her children.

104 min. drama by Bernd Böhlich.
DDR 1952 - After years of political imprisonment in Workuta, Soviet Union, being wrongfully accused by her own political comrades, communist Antonia Berger is finally allowed to come back home. However, the price she has to pay for her freedom is not to tell anyone about the awful experiences of her recent past…
The piano-based soundtrack is inspired by highly romantic piano compositions and tied closely to the protagonist. It captures the tensions evolving from the huge relief of being released from prison on the one hand, and the new political enforcements awaiting Antonia back in the DDR on the other.

93 min. documentary by Jan Haft about the impressive diversity of life in our meadows, exploring countless seriuously endangered animals, plants and other barely visible miracles.
The soundtrack is an atmospheric composition of orchestra and choir, thoroughly mixed with electronical textures and driving synthesizers that emerge more and more throughout the movie.
The vocal solo part in "Quo abiit" has been sung by myself and Lili Haft. The meaning of the Latin lyrics:
"Where has the beauty of meadows dissapeared to?
The meadows I so much loved to play in.
Full of rich diversity,
Full of flowers and animals.
Where has the beauty of meadows dissapeared to?"
