The films in competition
La Hijas de todas las rabias
In competition for the feature film section, this magical realism film by Laura Baumeister is set in Nicaragua. It tells the story and journey of a little girl in a hostile world redeemed by fantasy.
Cinema Massimo, screen 1, 4 pm.
Charlotte Le Bon
From the graphic novel by Bastien Vivès, the discovery of the desire of two teenagers. It’s summer, a 13-year-old boy meets a 16-year-old girl and falls in love with her: he is shy and insecure, she is bold but resists at least a little the temptations that come from her peers. Together the two overcome their fears, have fun, desire each other, play, perpetually suspended in an ambiguous relationship. And the audience is carried away in this emotional wave that comes and goes, seems about to explode and then fades away. The only obstacle to this love story seems to be the “ghost” who lives in the lake, or only in the protagonist’s head.
Cinema Massimo, screen 1, 5 pm.
Earthly life of Hamlet Marco Belelli
A documentary film in competition signed by Luca Ferri that will tell you everything you should have known about the Divine Otelma, seen through the director’s structuralist and surrealist eye.
Cinema Romano, room 1, 8.30 pm
An international documentary in competition which under the direction of Karim Kassem recounts the days that followed the expulsion at the port of Beirut. A symphony of a wounded city.

X-Factor, Sanremo, success. But in the heart of one of the most surprising voices of our musical panorama there is always the cinema: the cinema loved, studied, the cinema that is always present.

Theater, cinema, the Oscar, the great international recognition. A career that has already held many surprises and will hold others in the future, a careful and cultured look at the show.
