„Together as one“ shows the social use of kola nut in Nso´ society. Nso´ is an ethnic group in the North West region of Cameroon. The Nso´ population counts Christians, Muslims and followers of traditional religious beliefs.
This film shows what a thing, a nut or a natural resource can mean to people in Nso´ society. Kola nut is an item around which the feeling, experience, sense, and lived „reality“ of belonging, togetherness, being together, unity, oneness, friendship and peace is being expressed. The kola nut thus play an important role in bringing very diverse people together, irrespective of their religion, village, quater, or thoughts. In this sense, kola nut brings about a feeling of togetherness, felowship and belonging to a group.

Lamtur Tanlaka Kilian from Cameroon has diploma from History from the University of Ngoundere in Cameroon and Master in Visual Cultural Studies from teh University of Tromsø , Norway.

Two filmmakers dive into an ancient rite of manhood in Islamic Java – the tender and raucous sport of the singing doves, the Indonesian Nascar. When General Zainuri announces The National Perkutut Championship, thousands of Muslim men arrive at the grounds. Seven hundred poles stand in the center. Men hoist their doves – perkutut – seven meters up and dangle them ina sea of colorful cages.
A team of judges passes trought the forest of tall posts straining to discern the birds magical coos. If the judges are impressed they score a bird´s dong by tacking a small flag to the pole. After three hours a winner is declared. Winning perkutut sell for tens of milion rupiahs – tens of thousands of dollars.

Jim de Séve teches film production at Union College in Schenectady. Prior to that, he was an instructor at Film Video Arts in NYC for ten year. He sists at the board of Media Alliance, a non-for-profit who operates a sanctuary for independent media.

Toku Fenua takes us on an extraordinary journey into the South Pacific and offers a glimpse of life on the remote island of Niulakita in Tuvalu. Niulakita is the smallest, most isolated inhabited island in the world with only 47 Tuvaluans living on 0,4 square kilometres. The director spent several month in this island doing an anthropological fieldwork. Toku Fenua lets us closely participate in the daily routines of three islanders; their dreams and concerns. It also shows the problems that people in such a harsh enviroment are exposed to.

Martin Zinggl, born in Vienna, studied social and cultural anthropology and journalism. He resides as an author and film maker in Vianna and Barcelona and he is currently working in the publication of his first non-scientific book about Tuvalu.
