Integrating the concepts of the architect Michael Reynolds, creator of the EarthShips, Mariano Torre and Elena Roger dared to take that little big leap that means to bet on a feeling, to pursue the idea that teamwork can be the key to achieve positive changes in the way we live. It is not only a house that provides water to itself, automatically maintains a comfortable temperature or recycles its own waste, but is a project that integrates the needs of human beings with cleaner and responsible ways of building and living.

A new magical proposal from the renowned French activist photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Accompanied by Michael Pitiot, they tell us the story of life, reveal the formidable epic of living. A journey through the beauty of nature, through the sharing of flora, through the fun of the fauna; but also an awareness of the changes that man has generated the planet Earth in just 10,000 years. What can we still appreciate of this world? "Terra" invites us to answer this question, connecting with that animal being that we all carry inside.

In the last century, 94% of the seed varieties have disappeared. The progress of chemical biotechnology companies threaten a food legacy of more than 12,000 years old. Faced with this, farmers, scientists, lawyers and conservationists struggle daily to take care of the seeds and guarantee their democratic distribution around the world. Between pain and struggle, the film shows these heroes rekindling a lost connection with one of our most precious resources and, in doing so, they give new life to a millenary culture that can still survive.

Landfill Harmonic

A story of life, of hope, of inspiration. A proposal as complex as harmonic, perhaps as much as the orchestra's beat. "Landfill harmonic" tells the story of a musical orchestra of young musicians in a situation of vulnerability in Paraguay who play from instruments created with waste. A recycling and music initiative became an example of transformation for the whole world; a message of optimism to change reality.
