From social drama to comedy
The program has something for all tastes and genres: from nature documentaries (Microcosmos and More Than Honey, 2012) to rockumentary Gotthard (2017). From Swiss film legends (Bruno Ganz in Julia’s Disappearance, 2009) to the stars of neighboring Italy (Diego Abatantuono in My Beloved Enemy), via international auteurs such as Ken Loach with I, Daniel Blake (2016). Movies that were launched in Locarno and either came close to picking up an Oscar (Monsieur Lazhar, 2011), and ones that actually won the coveted statuette (The Lives of Others, 2006). Movies that captured hearts (Gabrielle, 2013 and The Guest, 2018); movies that struck at the core of Swiss identity (Unlikely Heroes, 2014) and tugged at heartstrings the world over (The Big Sick, 2017).
SRG SSR will complete its “Locarno line-up” with two other special programming features from RTS and SRF.
