Commitment as the theme of the 4th Festival “Cinema et al” from the cinema club Riom (Puis-de-Dome)

The topic fit perfectly with the news of recent weeks: “Resistance.” – But this is not a opportunistic topic! ‘, Michel Bourrier, president of the Ryoma film club, warns with a smile. The theme of the 4th edition of the festival “Cinema and others really thought about an organized association a few months ago, but always with the same requirement: “We always had a very eclectic program, so we tried to make the festival in this image, between projections and forms of artistic expression, with writers, music or a photographic exhibition,” the president describes.

In Riom (Puy-de-Dôme), the cultural program for the first six months of 2022 promises to be rich despite the uncertainty.

All forms of commitment

After a thriller, a great outdoor experience, and then justice at the end of last year, this year it’s all about commitment, March 24, 25, and 26, both at the Arcadia Cinema and various facilities on site. And to organize meetings, the film club starts with its guests, selected for their social, political, environmental and cultural commitment. “We give them carte blanche to choose the films they want to represent and defend,” adds Dominique Bonnet, secretary of the association.

Dominique Manotti

Therefore, four guests were chosen: Dominique Manotti first. History buff, former political activist and trade unionist who continued to write, among others, with Marseille 73, which takes place eleven years after the end of the war in Algeria, in a setting of targeted killings of Algerians. “This is a reference to the middle of a noir novel with a very purposeful script,” says Michel Bourrier. His choice of film fell on Being 20 in Ores, René Vautier (1972). “The first film with such a strong point of view on the war in Algeria,” notes Dominique Bonnet. The broadcast will take place on Friday, March 25 at 20:30, and will be preceded by a short film preview on Marseille 73 where interviews were taken from real characters who inspired the writer.

Dominic Cabrera

The second guest, director Dominique Cabrera, will be dedicated to the second evening of Saturday 26 March with a screening of Post office in La Courneuve1994 documentary and Kennedy cornice (2017). “She brings people together in her intimate and real cinema,” explains Dominique Bonnet. His films are always social investigations. The evening will also offer a “movie lesson” with the director where she will discuss her career and influences.

Nicolas Jayet

The third guest of the festival will be Nicolas Jaye. The author, “very immersed in pop culture. In playful, very bright aspects, it conveys very interesting messages,” emphasize the president and his secretary. His carte blanche, Thursday 24 March, will invite you to rediscover Confidential CairoTarika Saleh (2017), a thriller set in the days leading up to the Arab Spring.

Jackie Chabrol

Finally, the last guest, the “regional stage”, organizers smile, with Jacques Chabrol, trade unionist and anti-globalization activist, local elected official committed to social and climate-related issues. Her choice fell on the film Irrincina by Sandra Blondel and Pascal Hennequin (2017). A documentary about the struggle of the Basque organization “Bizi! ” has invested in the non-violent climate movement and is presented by the association Alternitaba 63 on the occasion of the preview held on 11 March.

In addition to these screenings and meetings, other events will allow you to meet with guest authors at local festival partners, between bookstores and media libraries. A round table with their participation will also take place on the topic “Resistance” on Saturday, March 26, from 14:00 in the media library of the Gardens of Culture in Rioma.

Actions are also planned for schoolchildren, both during a meeting with Dominique Manotti and Nicolas Jaye at the Virloge secondary school, and during the screening of short films with students of the Maurice-Geneste school. Something that will sow the seeds of dedicated cinephiles.
