Visions du Réel - International Film Festival

Daily news: Monday 8 April

Welcome to our "Daily news" mailing. Every day during the Festival, here are a few must-see must-do suggestions, among the 169 films and the numerous Industry activities for audiovisual professionals, including many conferences that are also open to the public. Enjoy the Festival!

 

INTERNATIONAL BURNING LIGHTS COMPETITION
An international competition dedicated to new vocabularies and expressions, to research and to narrative and formal experimentation.

IN THE NAME OF SCHEHERAZADE OR THE FIRST BEERGARDEN IN TEHRAN plunges us into a funny and deconstructed joyful apocalypse that follows four characters who moved to Germany in order to escape the dire and dangerous political situation of their countries. PIUCCHEPERFETTO follows Antonio who, like a post-modern Narcissus, projects himself in the endless choices that social media images offer him, whereas Rafael tells how he found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time in SEVEN YEARS IN MAY. THE SOUND IS INNOCENT dissects the story of electronic music as in a science-fiction film, L.A. TEA TIME is a fun and initiatory road-movie across the United States, and EL GURU is a documentary flashback to the famous Raging Bull. And ANIMALS highlights some deeply disturbing but outlandishly funny behavior patterns between humans and their furry friends.
