“The Heirs” is a one-hour documentary made in partnership with Social Center 6 de Maio and the inhabitants of an illegal neighborhood on the outskirts of Lisbon. This documentary’s main objective is to preserve the legacy of this community of emigrants from Cape Verde. But it has a more relevant objective: to demonstrate that we all share fundamental values of humanity and a country that we all feel like ours. Raising awareness for minorities, that are part of the social framework of international cities worldwide, is the mission of this documentary, a mission that is shared by Help Images and the Social Center 6 de Maio.

Our film aims at children, teenagers, and their families, and it was produced to alert and demystify Anorexia Nervosa: the eating disorder with the highest mortality rate. This film intends to bring awareness to the behaviours associated with this disorder: to promote empathy and understanding, encourage well-being and healthy lifestyles.
When approaching this topic, we want to promote awareness and social responsibility in general. Anorexia Nervosa is a serious mental health condition difficult to understand and recognize. An early diagnosis is crucial for a quick recovery. The faster the return to an adaptive trajectory, the less crystallized the problematic behaviour becomes.
Thanks to this film we have the opportunity to approach Anorexia Nervosa in school communities through visual media, stimulating an enlightening and prejudice-free debate afterward. Clarifying this topic, especially amongst teens and their families, will increase understanding and support amongst peers and the early identification of Eating and Ingestion Disorders.
This is our world! The world we want to share with future generations. Its everyone’s responsibility to take action, in a concerted, global and urgent response to the planet’s sustainable development The 2030 Agenda seeks to address these concerns on a comprehensive and truly universal way, based on 17 Sustainable Development Goals These goals are each and everyone’s responsibility – to reach them we need to work together as

“All good students” is an inspiring and informative film that takes us through the work developed by EPIS over the last five years. During the event “Rota das Vocações” that took place in Lisbon, 50 students from all the country got together for a special week. It was when we met Joana, a young girl who told us her success story. She is one of the students taking part in a program designed by EPIS to help and support students having problems during their academic years (from 7th grade). “all good students” tells us Joana’s story and introduces us to the teachers, family members, and mentors involved, as well as the methodology they apply. This film reflects the spirit of EPIS and its programs, always emphasizing people’s emotions, joyfulness, and achievements.
