El Black Movie de Ginebra prepara una cautivadora 21a edición
Technoboss, de João Nicolau

It might have passed the twenty-year threshold, but Geneva’s Black Movie Festival doesn’t seem to have lost any of its characteristic ardour. Captained by the close-knit duo composed of directors Kate Reidy and Maria Watzlawick, and sunnier than ever (the festival poster by Neo Neo exudes a pool party atmosphere boasting desert décor in the form of plastic cacti designed by the artist Cetusss), between 17-26 January this year, the festival dedicated to independent film is inviting its audiences to fully immerse themselves in a programme that’s demanding and atypical, but which isn’t short on (self) irony either.

Dark and troubling, but above all inventive and cathartic, the films on offer fall within no less than ten intriguing categories: “Black Movie For Kids, For Adults”, dedicated to short films, “Rebel Without A Cause”, which, as its name suggests, will home in on the first experiences and emotions of the young protagonists populating this section, “Singular Loners” consisting of a series of particularly audacious films on the theme of isolation, and “To Be Followed…”, the flagship section of the event, presenting the festival’s favourite directors; not to mention “The Women’s Labyrinth”, a section dedicated to women, their courage and their audacity, “Marcos, Ceausescu & Co”, composed of six fiction films inspired by the downward slide of authoritarian power, “Rituals” which talks to the irrational side we each hide within us, “Poor Lonesome Cowboys”, which transports us to far-away places on the edges of humanity, and the unmissable retrospective on the Algerian director who studied in France Malek Bensmail, who will also be delivering a masterclass (as part of the Talking Heads event), as will the legendary Portuguese filmmaker Pedro Costa.

Amongst the European films scattered among the various sections, we find the highly singular Technoboss [+lee también:
