GLOBAL FRONTERAS PRODUCTION

 A New York - Paris based
Film and Multimedia Production Company

About us

Global Fronteras Production is a documentary and film laboratory merging classical linear storytelling and new multimedia non-linear forms.

Global Fronteras Production was founded in 2013 by Adeline Bailleul and Tarek Bouraque, both journalists and filmmakers, around a common passion for the moving image, words and Men. We evoke facts and ideas through men, giving a medium to those who don’t have one while pushing narrative boundaries.

Agora, Documentary

At the top of Mount Alebban in the Atlas Mountains, the Amazigh people of Imider are writing their own story of resistance. Home to seven villages, the municipality of Imider is neighbor to the most productive silver mine in Africa. In August 2011, the villagers set up a protest camp on the top of a Mount Alebban where the mine's water pipeline runs. They turned off the pipeline and have occupied the hillside in nonviolent protest ever since.

Ground Zero Peace, Documentary

9/11. Lost lives and rubbles. For Sheerena and her husband Sheikh Moussa, this day was filled with pain and hope. The beginning of a grounded commitment to bring light from the midst of one of the darkest moments in American history. On this day, challenging all predictions, they opened the first Muslim school in New York. Located in the Bronx, the Islamic Center, home to an important Muslims population, became even more singular after opening its door to an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community. In a time of divisiveness, this film tells the story of a couple determined to overcome differences. A healing journey through cultural respect and interfaith unity.

Driving your Soul, Documentary

Sufism, a mystical branch of Islam, has been cloaked in secrecy for most of its existence, having been forced underground by Ottoman rulers in the 13th century. Yet, in a cozy home located in the Bronx, New York, the Burhaniyya Sufi order meets every Saturday. The participants, both American-born converts and Sufi migrants, squeeze their eyes shut; some gently swayed, letting themselves be carried away by the rhythmic mantras. Sufis call this practice Zikr and see it as a way of connecting with God and elevating themselves through communal meditation. This is the story of spiritual exploration. The story of an insider named Taghrid, born and raised in a Sufi house from Egypt, and an outsider named Christopher, born and raised in the Bronx, who changed his name to Issa after converting to Islam. This film explores how the motion of culture and religion can be adopted from civilizations to another; from country to country, from insiders to outsiders.
