First titles and opening film announced for Visions du Réel



Visions de Réel unveils its Grand Angle and Highlights selection: 23 feature films – including 3 world premieres, 1 international premiere and 1 European premiere – that testify to the current vitality of non-fiction film as well as its formal and narrative freedom. This 54th edition (21 to 30 April 2023) will open with the world premiere of Nightwatchers by Juliette de Marcillac. Filmed at night in an idyllic Alpine resort a stone's throw from the French-Italian border, Nightwatchers walks the vertiginous peaks alongside volunteers who help migrants.
The Grand Angle competition, where 12 titles compete for the Audience Award, features premieres of films that are soon to make waves at festivals, as well as those that have already won over international audiences. For 2023, this section includes three world premieres: the activist story of Extinction Rebellion in Planet B by Pieter Van Eecke; Behind the Lines by Syrian filmmakers Alisar Hasan and Alaa Amer, which focuses on the city of Idlib’s first female cartoonist, interweaving animation and live action; and the opening film Nightwatchers by Juliette De Marcillac.
The non-competitive Highlights section presents 11 Swiss premieres that the programming team felt essential including. Two films echo contemporary concerns about identity: Philosopher and activist Paul B. Preciado's first feature film, Orlando, ma biographie politique and Notre Corps by the illustrious Claire Simon (2018 VdR Guest of Honour). Highlights also features films that reflect modern day crises, such as My Worst Enemy by Franco-Iranian Mehran Tamadon and When Spring Came to Bucha, co-directed by Ukrainian artist Mila Teshaieva and German filmmaker Marcus Lenz.
