LENZ de Thomas Imbach
The filmmaker Lenz has left his native Berlin for the Vosges to research the story behind Georg Büchner's novel fragment Lenz. But he soon trades the Alsatian landscape for higher altitudes and more emotional territory. Against a background of kitsch global tourism, provided by the authentic Zermatt locations, Thomas Imbach portrays an unconventional family and a man struggling between euphoria and desperation.

FELTRINELLI de Alessandro Rossettto
The story of the Feltrinelli publishing house was marked by the strong personality of its founder, Giangiacomo Feltrinelli. A courageous publisher, he frequently selected works in line with his political convictions. Throughout his life he supported the far left, at the same time trying to popularize literature through his work. In 1972 Feltrinelli was killed when attempting to blow up an electricity pylon. Through the testimony of great writers, loyal supporters of the publishing concern, the director profiles a remarkable figure and reveals the love of words which inspired and inspires the staff at Feltrinelli.

NO BODY IS PERFECT de Raphaël Sibilla
This documentary is a journey into the world of extreme and unconventional sexual experimentation, into the world of trans-sexuals, sadomasochism and other forms of sexuality. Without becoming voyeuristic, the film offers an explicit portrait, never sensational for its own sake, of a certain kind of sexuality in the 21st century. The Swiss director Raphaël Sibilla was already at Locarno in 2001 with his film 117 POLICE

21h30 Piazza Grande (deuxième film)
LA LISTE DE CARLA de Marcel Schüpbach
Following the work of Carla del Ponte, prosecutor for former Yugoslavia at the International Criminal Tribunal in the Hague, the Swiss director reflects on the workings of the court in an absorbing documentary that at times is more like a thriller. Penetrating the labyrinth of international justice, it focuses on the dilemma created by the constant need to compromise with the demands of realpolitik.
