Pozdrowienia z raju · dir. Brillante Mendoza
Philippines, France, Germany, Great Britain 2012, 120’


10/24, 20:00 · Baj Pomorski – hall A


In May 2001, a group of foreigners spending their time on an exotic island in South Philippines are brutally awakened from their night sleep. A number of masked men with rifles take them to a barge and sail away far to the sea. The frightened tourists quickly realise they have been kidnapped. One of them is Therese, a humanitarian activist from France. The kidnappers shout “Allahu Akbar” and introduce themselves as Islamist fighters linked to an organisation led by certain Osama bin Laden. They inform the multi-national group of captives that their release is only possible, if somebody pays ransom. This is the beginning of a long ordeal for the group of captives, who are making their way through the jungle, under constant fire from the Philippine army. One day, they overhear a radio report on the attacks on WTC. The captives are horrified and come to the conclusion that the entire world is now in the hands of terrorists.
