«Raoul Peck's Oscar-nominated, festival-award winning and critically acclaimed documentary event explores the place of African-Americans in today's American society, based on an unfinished text by James Baldwin. An invitation to question the very foundations of what America stands for. With fascinating archival images whose strength is accentuated by the writer's words. »

«Lazzaro, a young warmhearted farmer, lives in a hamlet that has remained isolated from the world. One summer, he will be transported to the modern world. After "Le Meraviglie", Alice Rohrwacher returns with a tale mixing neorealism and fantasy and confirms the singular place she holds in contemporary cinema. One of the great successes at the CityClub: "Lazzaro Felice" is an enchanting pearl of rare grace and beauty.»
«A tribute to the history of cinema in six episodes, inspired by different cinematic forms. Each episode corresponds to a genre: a B-series, a musical, a spy movie, an unclassifiable, a revisited classic of French cinema and an emancipation film. Only one common point between these episodes: the four actresses. Six episodes, to be seen as six different films that respond to each other: in total, 14 hours of great cinema. A masterful work, perfect for this period of confinement. »
«Between Portugal and Africa, Gian Luca Ventura recounts his romance with an old lady with an unstable temperament. Remember the saga of the "1001 Nights" projected in 2015. Do you remember the suckling pig that was cooking in front of the cinema when the filmmaker Miguel Gomes came to meet us in Pully? "Tabu" is his previous film. Presented at the Berlinale, it is a superb lyrical flight between today's Portugal and its colonial past. A story of love and crime, of a more than cheerful audacity. »
«If you think you have problems with your father, wait until you meet Ines! Despite her perfectly organized and disorder-free life, Ines is unable to answer her father when he asks her if she is happy. This cumbersome and embarrassing father will do everything to help her find a meaning to her life by inventing a facetious character: Toni Erdmann. A superb bittersweet comedy.»

«Moonee's six years old and a hell of a temper. Unleashed in total freedom in a motel in the suburbs of Disney World, she does the 400 tricks with her little band of cheeky kids. A pop film with a big heart and crazy energy, presented at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017. »
Leningrad Cowboys Go America (1989)
Aki Kaurismäki
Finland
79′
The Leningrad Cowboys, a band with foot-long quiff hairstyles and long Winklepicker shoes to match, are seeking success in Siberia, but nobody seems to like their music, except for the mute village idiot, Igor (Kari Väänänen). Thwarted by a lack of local commercial potential, they are encouraged to move to America, for people will "buy anything" there. They depart for New York, bringing with them a band member who had frozen the previous night while practicing outside. They arrive at the CBGB bar in Manhattan. An agent offers them a gig at a wedding in Mexico and recommends that they change their musical style to rock and roll. They buy a used 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Limousine, strap the coffin carrying their frozen band member onto the roof and set off to earn their way through the Deep South, adapting their musical style to suit local tastes at each new location. All the while they are being driven on and exploited by their money and food hoarding manager Vladimir (Matti Pellonpää), who has a seemingly unlimited supply of beer in the ice-filled coffin. Meanwhile, Igor, who stowed away on the plane, follows the band by his own means of transportation. When he finally catches up with them, they appoint him as their road manager. During the trip, the band spends time in jail, has their car engine stolen, causes a nightclub to close after playing an unsuccessful show, and reunites with a long-lost cousin (Nicky Tesco) whose singing gives positive reception from the audience. They eventually make it to Mexico and perform their wedding gig, where the thawing bass guitarist is revived with a shot of tequila and joins the group on stage, as does Igor. Vladimir watches them play then wanders off, but the band finally finds success in Mexico, making the top ten.

«A bad Russian rock band leaves Siberia for America in the hope of becoming famous. They end up on the roads of Mexico. You like Monthy Python? This film is for you! A burlesque and crazy road movie with a thousand ideas, signed by the brilliant Finnish filmmaker Aki Kaurismäki.»
«Isolated on top of the Colombian mountains, teenagers, all armed, are in charge of watching over an American hostage. Then comes the flight into the jungle. Somewhere between Francis Coppola's "Apocalypse Now" and Golding's "His Majesty of the Flies", "Monos" is a sensory experience, captivating and inhabited by an astonishing and paradoxical beauty.»

«Sonia Kronlund is the producer of "Les Pieds sur Terre", broadcast on France Culture, which brilliantly explores and dissects society from all angles. For her first film, she chose to travel to Afghanistan, a few kilometres from Kabul. A country she knows well and whose language and cinema she knows well. She portrays a lively, very resistant film industry, and above all its Prince Salim Shaheen, the most popular and prolific actor-director-producer in the country. "This is not Hollywood, it's not Bollywood, it's Nothingwood": a thrilling and exciting documentary.»
«Portrait of a Wayuu family at the heart of the flourishing sale of marijuana to North-American youth: when family honour tries to resist the greed of men, clan warfare becomes inevitable and jeopardizes their lives, their culture and their ancestral traditions. There is nothing like a good western to fly back in time and distract oneself from everyday life. But this western, strong and contemporary, also has the other ambition to tell the History of Colombia. Presented in the Piazza Grande in Locarno, an impressive film co-directed by the author of the no less magnificent "El Abrazo de la Serpiente".»
