Let Him Fly

“Let Him Fly” draws on footage shot over eight years to lyrically document the rise and exponential growth of the Delhi hip-hop scene. The film spotlights some of the most influential artists in the scene who, despite various challenges, have persisted with their craft as they have become men navigating adult responsibilities and uncertain futures.

The One Who Runs Away Is the Ghost

Sisters Haohao and Zhouzhou (five and eight) spend most of their time outside of school in the electronics market of Huaqiangbei, a market in Shenzhen once known for its counterfeit electronics products, now the centre of electronics production in China. As new migrants to the city, their parents started a 10-square-metre shop on the 9th floor of the market a year ago. In the eyes of the two sisters, the world of electronics gradually opened up to them and transformed into an imaginary world of dangerous creatures and ghost stories. The other children in the market are also spreading the word that a violent storm is coming.

EthnoKino Film Festival 2023

2–5 December

EthnoKino Film Festival 2023

Dedicated to visionaries and pioneering storytellers across the globe, we are an international action community of practice, working towards systemic change through the power of authentic and meaningful storytelling. Our catalytic home cinema of the commons and commoning film practices intend to co-create a nourishing influential mov(i)ement for societal cohesion and to enact integral transformation for deep planetary impact.

In 2023 we designate the EthnoKino film festival’s theme as “resilient”. We explore how human beings around the world interpret and manifest resilience. The various ways they resist, disobey and practice strength and hope in the face of adversity, challenges and injustices. From forcefully displaced populations to those born strangers to their own communities, those change-makers transforming and transcending the societies they are part of; through social initiatives, educational projects, co-creative engagements of art and poetry, and other interventions, we will explore what resilience means in its full humanity and wholeness.

Overall, in a world of immense interactions and global technological advancements, accompanied by unprecedented movements, colonialism, climate change, war and conflicts, we will look and continue to create inspiring stories addressing the world’s biggest problems in search of solutions to planetary challenges.

Festivals Community Bern, Mexico City & Berlin 2023:
