Ten years after the onset of the Great Recession, OtherMovie 2018 edition will focus on the economy
The crisis that hit towards the end of the first decade of the new millenium has – in one way or another – touched upon every continent and culture influencing international politics, altering lifestyles and affecting people’s everyday lives. At times it has put values and convictions under discussion.
Furthermore, internal and global security have always been threatened by the close link between terrorism and money.
There is therefore no shortage of nuances. Also, in line with tradition, this edition too will see each section of the Festival (music, visual arts, cinema, books, in-depth analysis and talks) dealt with from different perspectives and viewpoints, through films as well as moments of reflection and discussion, by picking up suggestions and looking across to lesser-known realities, where international media are less present, bringing into focus current affairs that unite East and West.
Given that OtherMovie Festival has always wished to encourage – across the spectrum of artistic production, interaction among cultures across the world, one focus of attention will also be on the social and economic integration of the foreign communities present in Switzerland. Various studies have shown how success – in professional, job-related and economic terms – is essential for a positive outcome in integration.
The Festival will take place from 15th to 21st April 2018 across a number of cinemas and cultural venues in the Lugano and Mendrisio areas. The official opening night featuring a video music show is at Studio Foce Lugano on Sunday 15th.. .
