L'Alternativa presents

This section comprises eleven programmes put together exclusively by l'Alternativa for the Hall Screen: a rich tapestry of international films and videos for all audiences, although perhaps not for all tastes. Eccentricities, conviction, genius, documentary, criticism, humour, observation and intimate visions.

Pure eclecticism for curious eyes.
