The Cinema Department of HEAD - Geneva is proud to announce the world premiere screening of two films by first-year Bachelor students at the 75th edition of the Locarno Festival, which will be held from August 3 to 13, 2022. Many films by alumni and collaborators of the school are also selected.

Les Dieux du supermarché de Alberto Gonzalez Morales (film Bachelor)
Pardi di domani: Concorso nazionale

At a time of “body positive” movements, this film pays tribute to the male body with which the director has a love-hate relationship. Both obsessed and frustrated by it, this ideal body represents an unattainable fantasy. Through a montage made from content collected on the Internet (netfootage), he addresses a message full of sincerity.

Serafina by Anna Simonetti and Noa Epars (film Bachelor)
Pardi di domani: Concorso nazionale

An orthodox heroine riding a motorcycle. Young people breaking the monotony of a country life through stunt riding. A meeting on a Western backdrop between two worlds that everything opposes except their very reason for being: passion.

De noche los gatos son pardos de Valentin Merz (alumnus Bachelor)
Compétition internationale

A crew is shooting a libertine costume film in the countryside when Valentin, the director, suddenly disappears. While the local police investigates, the film shoot continues but takes an odd turn. Robin, the cameraman and director’s lover, follows a promise and reaches the Mexican Pacific.

I’m the Only One I Wanna See de Lucia Martinez Garcia (alumna Master)
Pardi di domani: Concorso nazionale

A woman, a dancer, a creature, dances, free. She makes fun of the violence, the insults, the looks that reign around her.

Dans la nature de Marcel Barelli (alumnus BA)
Panorama suisse

In nature, a couple is a male and a female. Well, not always! A couple is also a female and a female. Or a male and a male. You may not know it, but homosexuality isn’t just a human story.
