Shultes es la opera prima de Bakur Bakuradze, y fue presentado por primera vez en la Quincena de Realizadores de Cannes el año pasado, y poco después recibió el Gran Premio en el Kinotavr Open Russian Film Festival. “La idea para el guión surgió al darme cuenta de que una persona consigue vivir una vida completamente emancipada mientras guarde una conexión con su pasado, lo que le asegura su camino hacia el futuro.” (Bakur Bakuradze). Proyección en la sección oficial de largometrajes de l’Alternativa, jueves 19 noviembre 2009.

Gabbla / Inland by Tariq Teguia will receive its Spanish premiere in the feature film competition at l’Alternativa. The film was awarded the FIPESCI prize at the Venice film Festival, and then screened successfully at Rotterdam, Juanju, Seattle and Guadalajara film festivals, before being released in France to rave reviews. Inland reflects the contradictory political situation of present-day Algeria through Malek, a reclusive topographer who accepts a commission to survey a remote part of western Algeria. With a minimalist approach to plot and dialogue, and mesmerising cinematography, these present-day realities are interspersed with flashbacks of idealistic political debate, set against a soundtrack that mixes alternative rock, Nigerian Afrobeat and Algerian Rai. Screening Saturday 14th November 2009.
