Benedikt Erlingsson, 2013 c6.8

Five hair-raising, absurd, tragicomic episodes about people and horses somewhere in the Icelandic nowhere. The houses of the individual characters are hundreds of metres apart, but thanks to the constant use of field glasses, everyone knows about everyone else at all times. And what widowers and widowers, quarterly drunkards and rabid farmers, a Swedish horse whisperer and a Latin American bicycle tracker are doing here between barren pastures and snowfields, funerals and rides, is truly something that doesn't go on any horse skin.

Laurent Herbiet, 2019 c7.2

He was the greatest cinematic genius, capable of provoking both laughter and fear. At his last public appearance, “Hitch” paid homage to Alma Reville Hitchcock – his co-scriptwriter, editor, mother of his child, life partner. Through the lens of this collaborative relationship, this film examines the legend himself.

The Queen
Stephen Frears, France, 2006
with Helen Mirren, Michael Sheen c7.3

Following the death of Princess Diana in a car accident, Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Tony Blair struggle to reach a compromise in how the royal family should publicly respond to the tragedy.

Spotlight

PETER METTLER

Director/Author/Director of photography, * Canada 1958

Peter Mettler grew up in Canada with Swiss parents and has spent his entire career as a cosmopolitan commuter between his home countries, Asia and South America. The commuting between the worlds of documentary, feature and experimental film, physical and biological phenomena,  psychological and philosophical reflection also characterizes Mettler's artistic work, which begins with the new Canadian wave of the 1980s and finds its way into the form of the cinematic essay with the nature film Picture of Light and the opus Magnum Gambling, Gods and LSD. Mettler likes to work with strong "antipodes" such as his Canadian directing colleagues Atom Egoyan and Robert Lepage or, more recently, the philosopher David Abram (Becoming Animal), who stimulate his thinking in images and inspire him to ever new experimental arrangements. Mettler's films have won countless prizes, his work is internationally recognized and continues to be intensively pursued.
