2007- Biologist and filmmaker Jean Lemire, accompanied aboard the schooner Sedna IV by a handpicked team of scientists and filmmakers, dared to experience climate change and its consequences within Antarctica’s icy grip.

More than a full year of daring, isolation, danger, intensity: it was a spectacular adventure full of risks and triumphs, joys and perils. The crew was prepared for the worst but faced even worse !

Le Dernier Continent is a testament to a human adventure at once chilling and inspiring. The film alternates between captivating images of deep serenity and spine tingling sequences in which the ship’s crew finds itself, time and again, on the edge of catastrophe.

Before our eyes, the crew members live out their most exhilarating highs and grimmest lows. With Le Dernier Continent, Jean Lemire earns the viewer’s admiration on every level: majestic landscapes, fascinating wildlife, a courageous and sensitive crew, relevant and troubling environmental information, exceptional film making. The film is a worthy tribute to the courageous Sedna IV mission it documents, a voyage to the heart of the last continent: Antarctica.  French w/English subtitles.

“Where do multinationals pay taxes and how much?” Gaining insight from international tax experts, Backlight director Marije Meerman (‘Quants’ & ‘Money & Speed’), takes a look at tax havens, the people who live there and the routes along which tax is avoided globally.

Those routes go by resounding names like ‘Cayman Special’, ‘Double Irish’, and ‘Dutch Sandwich’. A financial world operates in the shadows surrounded by a high level of secrecy. A place where sizeable capital streams travel the world at the speed of light and avoid paying tax. The Tax Free Tour is an economic thriller mapping the systemic risk for governments and citizens alike. Is this the price we have to pay for globalised capitalism?

At the same time, the free online game “Taxodus” by Femke Herregraven is launched. In the game, the player can select the profile of a multinational and look for the global route to pay as little tax as possible.
