MEDIMED has awarded two GH projects from the 2016/17 program with the opportunity to participate in their 2017 pitching forum.
Kabul Dystopian Symphony directed by Aboozar Amini from Afghanistan & produced by Jia Zhao, and Lost Childhood by David Wachsmann from Israel were invited to pitch their projects at the 2017 Euro-Mediterranean Documentary Market & Pitching Forum, which took place in October 2017, at Sitges, Spain. The filmmakers also participated in one-on-one meetings with decision makers and key industry professionals attending the forum.

Kabul Dystopian Symphony

Aboozar Amini & Jia Zhao

A city is an orchestration of its inhabitants. The film portraits the city Kabul through daily details of two kids and a bus driver, set against the background of a city destroyed by politic and religious powers.

Lost Childhood

David Wachsmann

This film crosses the threshold into the disturbing and harsh reality of Palestinian children detained in Israeli prisons. These children (700 children per year) are subjected to interrogations, verbal and physical abuse, prevention of food and sleep deprivation. While exposing this cruel mechanism of child punishment, the film will investigate the enormous influence prison experience has on these children's minds and souls.
