Liyana is a genre-defying documentary that tells the story of five children in the Kingdom of Eswatini who turn their past trauma into an original tale about a girl named Liyana who embarks on a perilous quest to save her young twin brothers. The film weaves an animated journey together with poetic documentary scenes to create an inspiring story of perseverance and hope.

Peau de colle tells the story of Amira, a five-year-old who wants a few more hours of vacation before returning to Kouttab, where she will continue to learn the Koran, and her inventive ways to avoid going there.
