    A FLOWER IN THE MOUTH
    UNE FLEUR À LA BOUCHE

    Éric Baudelaire

    A film in two parts: a first act filmed as an observational documentary in the world’s largest flower market, followed by a fictional second act about a man, afflicted by a terminal illness, encountering a stranger in a train station bar. A radical reflection about time running out and what remains to be done, adapted from a play by Pirandello.

    CASA SUSANNA

    Sébastien Lifshitz

    In the 50s and 60s, deep in the American countryside at the foot of the Catskills, a small wooden house with a barn behind it was home to the first clandestine network of cross-dressers. Diane and Kate are now 80 years old. At the time, they were men and part of this secret organization. Today, they relate this forgotten but essential chapter of the early days of trans-identity.

    MUSIC FOR BLACK PIGEONS

    Jørgen Leth, Andreas Koefoed

    How does it feel to play? What does it mean to listen? As some of this existential questions are asked to musicians, long pauses occur. Because is it even possible to put the emotions of music into words? The documentary is a cinematic improvisation piece. It’s about being present in the now, about playing and improvising, about carrying on the legacy of generations of jazz pioneers and creating something, unlike anything you’ve ever heard before.

    SEE YOU FRIDAY, ROBINSON À VENDREDI, ROBINSON

    Mitra Farahani

    “We should start with a correspondence, maybe we will not correspond to one another. Ebrahim can send me a letter this Friday, and I’ll answer him next Friday. So, see you Friday, Robinson! "And so, Jean-Luc Godard stages himself in his daily thought, wisely desperate, and sends images and words from Switzerland to the other side of the Channel. In his mansion in Sussex, Ebrahim Golestan tries to decode these UFO-messages and skilfully seeks to bring them back to the appearance of reason. And so on, until the day a veil falls over the two Gods on the run. Does the existence of poets still have any meaning in these times of distress?

    THE MATCHMAKER

    Benedetta Argentieri

    Tooba Gondal is one of the most infamous British jihadists. When she was only 20 years old she left London to join the Islamic State and gained popularity worldwide as “the ISIS matchmaker” after she recruited a dozen of Western women to marry ISIS fighters. Between 2014 and 2017 she actively engaged in propaganda on social networks. After disappearing for two years, Tooba was filmed in 2019 by director and freelance reporter Benedetta Argentieri, in Raqqa, Syria. Is she really the nice, intelligent and submissive girl we see on camera? Or is she a violent extremist? An interesting reflection on the Islamic holy war seen from the point of view of the women who are part of the caliphate, fighters and executioners themselves.
