Siamo italiani
Alexander J. Seiler, Rob Gnant, June Kovach, Switzerland, 1964

With half a million seasonal workers, Italians were by far the largest group of foreigner in Switzerland in the 1960s. They struggled with bureaucratic hurdles, for family reunification, decent housing and against the mistrust of the Swiss population. Siamo italiani was, also internationally, one of the first documentaries on this topic - and also groundbreaking in that it gave both the Italians and the locals the floor without prejudice.

*1969 South Korea, director of this year's Cannes winner Parasite

The Golden Palm of Cannes is only the latest glorious leaf in a story that began around 2000. After the Japanese auteur film, the Bollywood and the Hong Kong mainstream, Western film fans then began to discover the originality of the new South Korean cinema, which mixes elements of the entertainment and auteur cinema carefreely. Together with Park Chan-wook, Bong Joon-ho is the most famous banner bearer of this new Korean wave. His thrillers and action films present suspense and spectacle, burlesque comedy and black humour with a socio-critical insight and narrative refinement that are second to none. It is high time that these fireworks full of surprises ignite on a grand scale in this country as well.
