Another Planet - Másik Bolygó

At the end of 2005 the United Nations decided to dedicate the following years to the problems of our Planet, and declared 2008 the International Year of Planet Earth. What has our Planet become in the first decade of the XXI century? We live in an extremely divided world, marked by shockingly unjust human conditions, reeling from the symptoms of massive ecological crises. Countries left to fend for themselves, looted and humiliated, completely unable to recover in the wake of civil wars and genocide. The bare minimum of human values and human rights are being trampled upon.

Some shocking facts: *

We started to shoot our film in Black Africa in 2005 and finished it in 2007. During these two years we witnessed appalling human fates and encountered various stages of humiliation and defenselessness. Child laborers, slaves, child prostitutes and child soldiers, and children suffering in Dickensian conditions - a shameful and anachronistic state of affairs in the International Year of Planet Earth.
„Another Planet” intends, by presenting problems which have such a devastating effect on children’s lives - starvation, exploitation, and forced conscription - to shed light on some philosophical questions of human existence and progress, through expressive images and the power of cinematographic language.
