Fíorscéal brings a new season of top-class international documentaries that continue to throw a sometimes disturbing or controversial light on issues which affect us environmentally, socially, politically and globally.  Among the first documentaries of the new season are:

 

 

Eagles of the Forest    23.02.17 @ 11.15pm

Living in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, the players of the Gaviao Kyikateje (the “Eagles of the Forest”) Football Club, are the first native Brazilian professional team ever formed. Legally registered in August 2011 by the Brazilian Confederation of Football, they have won the second division championship in the state of Para, in the Amazon. Now, at the eve of the World Cup, they intend to make it to the first league of the State of Para, as the first ever tribe of footballers.

 

Lethal Fake Medicine    02.03.17 @ 10.55pm

Lethal fake medicine offers a unique look behind the scenes of the global fight against the criminal business of counterfeit medicine. Interpol estimates that 50% of all medicine being sold over the internet is fake and up to a million people die every year because of it – either because the medicine doesn’t contain the beneficial compounds or simply because it is poison. The film highlights the importance for the international community to act united in the combat of counterfeit medicine and how essential it is to raise the consumers’ awareness of how dangerous it is to buy medicine online.

 

Bitter Grapes  09.03.17 @ 10.55pm

This in-depth journalistic documentary will expose how thousands of wine yard workers in South Africa have been illegally evicted and now live in shelter towns in tin-pan houses without toilets, electricity or water.
