Latin-American cinema is honored in Switzerland

The 8th Filmar en America Latina film festival, dedicated to Latin-American film, is opening in Switzerland this Thursday, November 9th. Its artistic director, Gérard Perroulaz, explains in an interview with Emmanuel Cuénod how certain themes of the films on offer have an echo on the Old Continent. "It struck us as important to show [this year] films that deal with the problem of Mexican immigration to the United States. The debate has taken place in North America, but it has been concluded with the construction of a wall between Mexico and the United States! However, the films that we have selected show us another reality: each of these countries is in need, economically, of its neighbour. This is a problem that is all the more topical as in Europe, even if we are not physically building walls, we too are tempted to build barriers between immigrants and ourselves".
