How can an artisan survive when faced with European regulations and dwindling resources? In his debut film, Alex Camilleri pays tribute to Italian neo-realism and gives a voice to those oft-forgotten thanks to a remarkable non-professional cast.

107 Mothers by Peter Kerekes

Leysa is convicted of the murder of her husband. She gives birth to her son in a prison for young mothers and is allowed to stay with him for three years before they are separated, until the end of her sentence. This extraordinarily sensitive film shifts between fiction and documentary: Leysa is played by an actress, but the other characters are real guards and prisoners in the Odessa prison where this deeply moving film was shot.

Red Jungle by Juan José Lozano & Zoltán Horváth

Colombia, March 2008. In the jungle, the oldest communist guerrilla in the world is living its last moments. Raul Reyes, the FARC's second in command, is killed in a bombing. He leaves behind an unprecedented document: 10 years of correspondence with all the conflict's leading players, bearing witness to a fierce struggle. In mixed animation, Red Jungle immerses us in the intimate and political story of a man, but also of a revolutionary utopia that dreamed of changing the world before collapsing.

A Night of Knowing Nothing
by Payal Kapadia

An award-winner in Cannes and Toronto, this debut film is a revelation and a cinematic gem. From her revolt in the face of rising extremism in India, young filmmaker Payal Kapadia weaves her web, a diary of poems, testimonies and stories against a backdrop of love letters. Edited on black and white images, this virtuosic collage, a tribute to the new wave and to justice, will undoubtedly prove a landmark ode to Indian youth and its freedom.

Grands reportages


Made to Measure by Hans Block, Moritz Riesewieck & Cosima Terrasse

Can a person be recreated alone based on their search history? Five years of a woman's life have been excavated to create a composite portrait, subsequently played by an actress. The original is then presented to its double. Part experiment, part cross-media project, part documentary, Made to Measure is a dizzying project about the surrender of our private lives, directed by the filmmakers behind The Cleaners (FIFDH 2018).

Tout commence by Frédéric Choffat

"The temperature rose. The birds fell silent. The children demonstrated. And suddenly the whole world stopped. The sky turned blue again." Based on interviews with his two teenage and activist children, Frédéric Choffat offers an intimate reflection on a Swiss youth caught between a climate crisis and a pandemic, but who continue to believe and despite it all stay active. Can we still imagine a world that will inspire our dreams?

An explosion far away. Anna and her four children live in the war zone of Donbass, Ukraine. Their shared project: to make a film about what they have experienced and about their daily life in this destroyed city.

La Finance lave plus vert by Matteo Born & Romain Girard

A wind of change anticipated by banks and public institutions, who for some years now have been shifting to “sustainable finance”. Following the financial crisis and repeated tax scandals, an opportunity to improve its image has presented itself for the banking sector.
