With an open air screening in Rolle, it's a return to the Festival's roots that we offer: a great manner to close this anniversary edition!
Indeed, we celebrate the 45 years of existence of the professional documentary cinéma festival created in Nyon in 1969 and the 20th edition under the name Visions du Réel, but we don't forget that originally there was an amateur festival founded a few years ago in... Rolle!
La Terre Promise by Francis Reusser
55 students in the choir of Saint-Michel high school Fribourg travel to Palestine for a series of concerts, discovering the problems caused by occupation. The words, filled with poetry provided in an Arabic voiceover, combined with the perspective of these young Swiss students, punctuate their encounters and concerts, and accompany tears and smiles that result from this extraordinary life experience.
Special screening in presence of filmmaker and of the choir of St-Michel School Fribourg!
