Synopsis: “For her first film, Forough Farrokhzad went straight to the most unwatchable: leprosy, lepers. And if was needed the gaze of a woman, if is always needed the look of a woman to establish the right distance with suffering and hideousness, without complacency and self-pity, her gaze still transformed her subject, and by bypassing the abominable trap of the symbol, succeed in binding, besides the truth, this leprosy to all the leprosies of the world.”.

Synopsis: One of the great works of an extraordinary filmmaker. De l’autre coté (From the Other Side) by Chantal Akerman (1950 – 2015) is a work about migration at the beginning of the century. Two decades later, its approach remains fully relevant. With formal sobriety, the filmmaker travels sinuously along the border between Mexico and the United States, listening to opinions from both sides, from those who want to cross it and those who want to prevent it, following the separations that divide human beings with penetrating tracking shots.
