CHRONICLES OF THE TIME OF TROUBLES

  • TFFDOC/INTERNAZIONALE

Three acts to recount the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Three different repertories to allude to a “turbulent” era. 1989-1991: one of the most difficult periods in 20th-century Russian history, which is remembered in a potentially reassuring way as Perestroika. But the club where the film begins seems more like the place for one last dance.

Lebanon

Section:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • TFFDOC/INTERNAZIONALE

Two women live together for a few months in a two-room apartment in Beirut: they carry mattresses out onto the balcony, frenetically clean the floors, prepare food, play the accordion, chat and dream of other places. They move the walls. Nuhad is fifty years old and fled Damascus because of the war; Angie, the young Lebanese director who has taken her in, shares with her the waiting and the desire to go elsewhere.

Section:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL

From colonial Algeria to the lost community utopia on a Greek island, to contemporary Athens, between collapse and revolution: Le Fort des fous is a journey which crosses the Mediterranean, the cradle of democracy and, perhaps, of its demise.

SANS ADIEU

(NO FAREWELLS)

by Christophe Agou
2017
99'
France

Section:

  • 35° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • TFFDOC/INTERNAZIONALE

Claudette and the other characters in the film are farmers who are approaching retirement age, or who have already passed it. They are breeders in torment, immortal cultivators, gods who resist globalization. The movie camera accompanied them for fifteen years, in the farms and pastures in the region of Forez, the ancient land of Astrea, and has given us a melancholy comedy, both tender and violent.

An archive of movies and audio material in Bissau bears witness to the birth of a cinema which is part of the process of colonial liberation. Filipa César accompanies the projections of this material from the isolated villages of Guinea-Bissau to Europe’s capitals.

Their chihuahua Angelina Jolie lives with them and witnesses their constant bickering.
