05.04 | Vernissage Unveiling the Veil| 18:30 | BCU (KUB)
The bilingual exhibition (German-French) at the BCU (Cantonal and University Library) gives several different perspectives on the topical issue of identities. In seven sections, it tells the long history of the veil from ancient times to the present day. The veil, a general term which also incorporates the headscarf, is almost exclusively associated with Islam today. And yet Christianity was the first religion to make wearing the veil compulsory.

05.04 | 78/52 | 20:00 | ARENA 5 in presence of Alexandre O. Philippe
78 different shots in 52 seconds: you might have recognized the famous shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. Originally from Switzerland but living in the US, selected at Sundance and a great friend to the FIFF, Alexandre O. Philippe is continuing to explore social phenomena. What he manages to draw from the most famous minute in film history, from its creation to its impact, is astounding.

05.04 | Sainte Harare | 23:00 – 3:00 | Le Mouton Noir
Electric World Music – let’s dance!
