Intimate Strangers

The films of this screening offer varied views on the concept of the foreigner, by emphasizing the personal experience of the filmmakers: the feeling of strangeness experienced towards the place of origin, the discovery of the other and the bond of sympathy within the journey, the experience of exile, and finally the history of the split of a country. Vehicles of this otherness, the forms break, shatter in contact with the other, calling into question their borders.
