MATINÉE FIRENZE 1943
by Tamar Tal Anati
(Israel, Germany, 2016, 70’ )
Three brothers (now 73, 82, and 84 years of age) of the Anati family from Florence are the heroes of this story. In 1943, in order to escape racial persecution, the family hid in a wood outside of the city and lived for several months in a makeshift cave thanks to the complicity of many local people. After the war, the Anati family moved to Israel permanently. 70 years later, the three men came back to walk in the woods around Florence with one goal: nding the cave that was their home and saved their lives.

LES CORPS INTERDITS
by Jérémie Reichenbach
(Francia, 2016, 12’)
In the form of a poem, of visual song, the voices of some migrants describe their experience in Calais, being confined in the largest camp of Europe, called “jun- gle” because there the individuals, stripped of all human dignity, live in a state of utter degradation, their bodies forbidden. In the freeze-frame of the suspended time of Calais, the migrant body vanishes. Only their voice, flesh that sings, tells the pain unceasingly.

by Olivier Babinet
(France, 2016, 84’)
In-between documentary and fiction, Swagger lets us into the surprising minds of eleven adolescents of various origins who live in one of the most disadvantaged Parisian banlieues, where ‘the French’ never set foot. A series of portraits that spotlight their hopes, fears, and daily life. In spite of their difficulties, these kids nourish dreams and ambitions that cannot be stifled. Olivier Babinet managed to bring these out and stage them in the form of a musical, constructing a film that defies all stereotypes about the European suburbs currently at the centre of the darkest news and giving us hope for the younger generations.

A summa of the ‘Zappa-thinking’ not only about musical theories and his daring experimentation, but also about politics, the rules of the show business, and the active role an artist can and must play within the media community.
