Lorenzo Buccella and Lili Hinstin begin the eighth Festival day with the Open Doors universe, as the section turns 18 during Locarno 2020. It's the perfect chance to journey Through Open Doors and rediscover major African filmmakers like Haile Gerima and Souleymane Cissé. It's the kind of cinema Tiziana Soudani, the founder of Amka Film, was profoundly fond of. She also produced the new film directed by her husband Mohammed Soudani, selected in The Films After Tomorrow. He is also part of A Journey in the Festival History, having chosen Roger Gnoan M'Bala's Au nom du Christ.
