20th Semaine de la Critique at Locarno Film Festival

This year the parallel section of the fest celebrated its 20th Aniversary and if you feel like reading what former delegates wrote about their time with the Semaine go here. As a reminder, this section is devoted to review the state of the art documentary film making and its purpose is provoking debate and opening up new perspectives of awareness and approach.

This year the seven documentaries in competition are the following.

17 sierpnia (17 August), Alexander Gutman, Russia, Poland and Finland, 2009
Auf der Suche nach dem perfekten Klang (Pianomania), Robert Cibis and Lilian Franck, Austria and Germany, 2009
Breath Made Visible, Ruedi Gerber, Switzerland, 2009 (impressive visuals!)
Crips, Strappend’n Strong, Joost Van der Valk and Mags Gavan, Netherlands, 2009
El Milagro del Papa, Jose Luis Valle, Mexico, 2009
The Moon Inside You, Diana Fabianova, Spain, France and Slovakia, 2009
