GAZ BAR BLUES shows the extraordinary tolerance and love of an ordinary group of men, as they struggle to cope with change and dislocation in a world becoming increasingly globalised. With great economy and artistic skill, the film quietly celebrates the community-creating power of loyalty and acceptance among family and friends.


Bless You, Prison
Directed by:

Based on the memoirs of Nicole Valéry-Grossu, this film is a convincing testimony of how she is overcome by faith in an extremely painful and hopeless situation. Her strength in preserving human dignity generates hope, compassion and community.
