Homemade violence

Our culture is so rich in wise proverbs and sayings: “The beating comes from Heaven!” says one; or “I made you, I’ll kill you”. Many apply these teachings in their daily lives. So we thought it is interesting to watch how other nations deal with their cultural heritage. Turks or North-Americans, Latvians or Indians compete in this category for the best achievement in Homemade Violence. In Mexico – for instance - the priest becomes part of the family and therefore feels entitled to sexually abuse his son.
It is unbelievable how filmmakers have managed to get so close to their often beaten-up characters. Intimacy is the rule, but this doesn’t mean humor is absent, or that authors worship their subjects. Kim Longinotto films Sampat Pal, a fierce women rights defender. But Sampat fails in most of her battles and manages to do more wrong than good to those she wants to help.
Directors accompany their characters on this difficult road. And sometimes the road becomes the film itself – social tool, psychotherapy, exorcism.
