ADY GASY de Nantemaina Lova – Doc. – 84′ – Madagascar – 2014
« Les Chinois fabriquent des objets, les Malgaches les réparent. »Il y a ceux qui font des chaussures à partir de pneus, ceux qui fabriquent des lampes à partir de boîtes de lait concentré sucré et même ceux qui transforment en médicaments et savon les os de zébus… Le temps d’un film, imaginons que ce ne soit plus aux économistes d’exposer leur modèle de croissance mais à chacun de valoriser le « ADY GASY », notre art de vivre encore largement répandu à Madagascar. Le « ADY GASY » ne serait plus alors un « système D faute de mieux » mais un véritable art de la créativité, de l’adaptation et de la fraternité.
« The Chinese make things, the Malagasy fix them. » Just for the time of a film, let’s have fun reversing roles… Let’s imagine it isn’t for the economists anymore to demonstrate their growth model, but for the farmers, artists, craftsmen, and streetwise sellers of all kind to showcase their skills. There are those who recycle tires into shoes, those who make lamps from sweetened condensed milk cans, those who transform zebu bones that were left by the stray dogs into soap and medication. In Madagascar, proverbs, music and recycling skills challenge economics with humour!

PAN by Dalton Narine – Doc. – 09’11 – Trinidad and Tobago – 2015 – English – En anglais
The nativity of Pan – the percussion instrument of the steel band you hear today at beach resorts, at Caribbean-themed Carnivals around the world, in movie soundtracks and on recordings – was a serendipitous moment, though pioneers and history would remember it as ordained because of its miraculous happenstance in the underbelly of society in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, the southernmost islands in the archipelago.
The backstory might not matter to the casual listener, or U.S. President Barrack Obama, who was gifted a steel pan, and mini-pans for his daughters, during a visit to the twin-island republic in April
2009. And if she were alive, England’s Queen Mother herself, whose eclectic album collection included a prized LP by Desperadoes, one of the world’s most famous steel bands. But the lore of the culture would surely attract the historian and the curious.
