- Cities on speed series
- "Four modern urban tales from Cairo, Bogota, Shanghai and Mumbai take a closer look at one of mankind's great challenges: planning for the future citizens in "exploding" cities. In 2030 80% of the world's population will live in cities. Megacities have traditionally been economic and political power centres but today the fastest growing cities are in developing nations. There is an acute need for new models of city planning to prevent collapses under such huge social, economic and environmental pressure. The new challenge is that cities today are made by citizens rather than city planners. Cities on Speed shows how four different megacities are dealing with this new modernity" --DR website.

- Point of view first person to observational /
- "Point of View: First Person to Observational enables viewers to explore different methodologies in ethnographic documentary filmmaking. In each short film, the filmmaker establishes a unique point of view, and thus entry point for the audience, as observer of their own or others' lives. Stories range from a young filmmaker's new appreciation of his mother in his attempt to grow up, that offer a glimpse into a suburban white, economically privileged community; a woman's reflections on her recovery from a breakdown after experiencing an attempted coup in Turkey; a humorous, keen observation of a couple negotiating their newlywed portraits with a lively photographer in a Chinese wedding photography shop; observations of Eastern European women telling stories as they make dumplings in the basement of a Ukranian church; and a filmmaker's encounters with the workers who create manhole covers that, upon their completion, travel from India to the streets of New York."--Container.
