Il FIFDH svela il suo ricco programma
The Teacher di Farah Nabulsi

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Unspooling between 8 and 17 March, the 22nd edition of the International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights (FIFDH) will be benefit from a new three-headed directorial team composed of the dynamic Leila Alonso Huarte and Laura Longobardi (editorial co-directors) in addition to Guillaume Noyé who’ll be taking over the role of operational and administrative director. As enthused by the three co-directors themselves, it’s a structural change which is perfectly in step with a socially engaged festival which is always looking to improve on itself.

Despite the highly troubling times we’re currently living through, the two editorial co-directors stress that the FIFDH doesn’t want to slide into unproductive gloom. On the contrary, it wants to try to find, in all this upheaval, an opportunity to reinvent itself and "to allow for the emergence of new perspectives". In this process, "the FIFDH is examining the role of images and of the representation of these changes, by gathering together all those who are thinking about collective solutions and who remind us of the need to act". Among these voices is that of Angela Davis, a leading figure in the fight for civil rights who will take part in a discussion in relation to a French film which has been selected in the Focus Competition, The Flag by Joseph Paris. Other guests at the Forum include Aminata Dramane Traoré, George Monbiot, Philippe Poutou, Claire Nouvian and Bernard Harcourt.

Numerous European productions and co-productions have been selected in the various competitions gracing the festival this year. These include world premières of An Unfinished Journey by Amie Williams and Aeyliya Husain, and Of Caravan and the Dogs by Askold Kurov and anonyme 1, both of which will feature in the Focus Competition. It’s impossible, in the current context, not to lend a voice to filmmakers who happen to be direct witnesses of the war in the Near East, including Anglo-Palestinian director Farah Nabulsi with her movie The Teacher [+leggi anche:
