Our editorial policy as far as creative documentaries are concerned, is to support and reinforce the views of our writers and directors, whose first aim is, above all, to question, discover, understand and testify, pertinently, historical, geopolitical and society subjects, while considering mostly the current events and news.
We thus develop a production policy for writers, who have various aesthetic and eclectic sets of themes. Our watchword is diversity and curiosity, as means to deepen the relationship with our current time, in order to participate in its understanding and its questioning. From our point of view, it is a sine qua non for maintaining an independent and creative spirit, contrasting with any formatting or normalization of documentaries that we produce. On the other hand, our main goal is to produce ambitious films, with European and international co-producers.

1976, in the middle of Lebanese civil war, a group of militant filmmakers managed to smuggle out 30,000 meters of negatives about the war, aiming to make a film explaining the position of the Palestinian revolution from it, and presenting an analytical discourse of the war events. The negatives’ journey starts from Beirut hoping to end in Rome; the Palestinian film group had contacts with the Italian communist party who agreed to co-produce the film. The journey includes crossing checkpoints, passing prohibited areas, sailing the Mediterranean, waiting and reflections.
