Can cinema be an agent of social change?

Can we change consciences through audiovisuals?

From medicusmundi mediterrània we are sure of it. This is why we have been making documentaries for more than 5 years. These documentaries allow us to share with people from all over the world the lessons we have received from people with we have had the pleasure of working during our more than 50 years of experience in the fight for the right to health in various parts of the world.

We invite you to watch them and subscribe to our newsletter to receive information about our activities.

We hope you find it interesting. Health, Rights, Action!

In Mozambique, the case of Josina Machel, daughter of the first president, shows that gender-based violence makes no distinction between social classes. Other women suffer terror every day, with no means to defend themselves. Their gender defines them from birth; society wants them to give in; male violence kills them. Now, a new generation of versatile, powerful, passionate and combative women are raising their voice against inequality from hip hop, rap, poetry, justice and social movements.

In Cabo Delgado, Mozambique, the poverty of the people and the richness of the soil still cannot be reconciled, and this is destroying the lives of hundreds of small-scale miners. Marcelino heads underground in an attempt to find rubies in a drill hole similar to the one in which his brother died. Toni works tirelessly in a mine where hardly any gold remains. These are just two of the thousands of stories from this remote part of the world, but… did you know that your health also depends on their work?

Since achieving independence in 1975, Mozambique is a country in constant change. In this context, governments, foundations, NGOs and companies declare noble intentions in order to improve the precarious health situation of the population. “A Luta Continua” (“The Struggle Continues”) reviews the achievements, challenges and difficulties in order to build a health system for all in an increasingly unequal country where, sometimes, aid strategies do not always walk in the same direction.

After 40 years of forced exile in the Algerian hamada, the most inhospitable area of the Sahara desert, the Sahrawi people have been able to raise a state that only needs to recover its territory—Western Sahara. Kafana (That is enough!) is the feeling of the people who live in an unsustainable situation and are ready to return home.

A film destined to spark debate and reflection. Set in the rural area of southern Mozambique, it addresses critical issues about reproduction and HIV / AIDS, gender relations and kinship, through the story of Marta, a young woman who discovers she is HIV positive when she becomes pregnant.
