by Taika Waititi
Germany, 2020, 108′
starring Roman Griffin Davis, Thomasin McKenzie and Taika Waititi.
Jojo is ten years old and has a despotic imaginary friend: Adolf Hitler. A fanatical Nazi, with his father ‘at the front’ boycotting the regime and his mother at home ‘doing what she can’ against the regime, he is integrated into Hitler’s youth. Between a drill and a grenade toss, Jojo discovers that his mother is hiding Elsa, a little Jewish girl, in the house. Declared enemies, Elsa and Jojo are forced to live together, she to stay alive, he to protect his mother. But the boy’s ‘conditioning’ will gradually fade with love and a friendship stronger than racial hatred.

Friday, 30 July >> Trash – la leggenda della piramide magica
by Luca Della Grotta and Francesco Dafano
Italy, 2020, 88′
Slim is a worn and tattered cardboard box; Bubbles is a dented and half-deflated soft drink bottle. Both find themselves on the floor of a market, destined to end up in the rubbish pail. But surprisingly, they come across little Spark, an empty battery pack with a recycling logo on the back: a symbol that Bubbles recognises as that of the Magic Pyramid, the place whose waste is fabled to be the only place where they could find a second life. Together with other scraps, the three leave the market and begin their adventure on the road, dodging enemies such as the Garbage Suckers and the terrible Predators.
Friday, 06 August >> Imprevisti digitali
by Benoit Deléphine and Gustave Kervern
France, 2020, 106′
with Blanche Gardin, Denis Podalydès, Corinne Masiero
Three neighbours in a French suburb find themselves caught up in a series of unforeseen events caused by their ineptitude in dealing with new technologies. Marie is afraid of losing her son’s respect because of a sex tape that ended up online, Bertrand falls in love with the voice of a receptionist and tries to protect his daughter from cyber-bullying and Christine, who has lost her husband because of her addiction to TV series, is willing to do anything to increase her rating as a private chauffeur. The three of them then embark on a battle against the internet giants. A battle far beyond their reach… perhaps.

Friday, 13 August >> Un divano a Tunisi
by Manele Labidi Labbé
France, 2019, 89′
with Golshifteh Farahani, Majd Mastoura
Selma Derwich, a 35-year-old psychoanalyst, leaves Paris to open a practice in the suburbs of Tunis, where she grew up. Optimistic about her mission, to lay her compatriots on the couch and bring them back into the world in the aftermath of the revolution, Selma has to contend with local mistrust, an indolent administration and an overzealous policeman who boycotts her. In Tunis, where people confess in the baths of the hammam or under the helmet of the hairdresser, Selma offers a third way, a protected place to take care of oneself and take the pulse of the city.
Friday, 20 August >> Il grande passo
