Bagatela es una de los nueve documentales a competición en la próxima edición de l’Alternativa. Es el retrato del día a día de los pequeños delitos en Bogotá, una ciudad acostumbrada a la violencia y a la desigualdad. Ganador del Premio Nacional de Documental en Colombia, Bagatela es, además, casi una producción catalana. La mayoría del equipo vive aquí y el director, Jorge Caballero, también. Proyección en la sección oficial de documentales de l’Alternativa martes 17 noviembre 2009.

Adhen / Dernier maquis is Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche’s third feature (following Wesh wesh, qu’est-ce qui se passe? (2002) and Bled Number One (2006)). The film explores themes of work, religion, politics and above all the complexities of life, asking questions and inviting debate. The film screened at Cannes, (where Sean Penn, President of the Jury, claimed it was the most important political film at the festival), Toronto, Montréal and Vancouver film festivals, and has been released in France to critical acclaim. The film will be screened in competition at l’Alternativa on Sunday 15th November 2009.

Politist, adjectiv is one of the eight films screening in the feature film competition at l’Alternativa this year and will receive its Catalan premiere at the festival. The film won the Certain Regard prize at Cannes and is a powerful deadpan meditation on authority and moral conscience, as well as seriously redefining the boundaries of the cop movie. Corneliu Porumboiu will be attending the festival to present the film on Wednesday 18th November, as well as participating in activites related to the section dedicated to Romanian film, which includes a roundtable on Tuesday 17th November.
