Little Peace of Mine
from Telad, Jerusalem
52 years of Peace talks in the area and no results: Nadav, a charismatic 12 year old Jerusalemite, therefore creates the formation of a new movement 'Peace for the Future', consisting entirely of children. The film documents two years of joy and frustration, hope and endeavour. And accompanying him, we realise the commandments for negotiators: Re-establish trust. Both sides need to understand the other sides's needs (the law of reconciliation says that one side cannot achieve ist objectives until the needs of the other party have been met). The parties must be able to deliver anything they agree to. Violence breeds further violence. And: A negotiator shall have infinite patience.In 1903, poet Rainer Maria Rilke wrote: 'Allow your judgements their own silent, undisturbed development, which, like all progress, must come from deep within and cannot be forced or hastenend. Everything in gestation, then birthing'. At the side of Nadev we feel, reflect and understand all this in the sensitive film 'Little Peace of Mine'

In the name of UNICEF

The Domaseller and the Badamwalla
from Bhutan Broadcasting Service, Thimphu
The Domaseller and Badamwalla gives us a unique opportunity to observe life in Bhutan, a country not often in the media's eye. It focuses on two youth who are in the unfortunate circumstances of having to work for a living. It tackles the serious issues of child labour - not only the abuse and pressure they face, but also being absent from school. The programme gives the two youth the responsibility of telling their own stories and giving advice on how others can live a better life (one of the young man impresses upon his little brother how important it is to go to school, so that he'doesn't turn out like me').

FATMA
from Egyptian Radio and Television Union, Cairo
A programme portraying a girl with impressive determination to be allowed to attend school. She will not give up until she has convinced her family and teachers that it is her right to learn.
