This year, IDFA proudly presents a retrospective of Gianfranco Rosi, the festival’s Guest of Honor. Although he made only six feature films, Rosi’s approach resulted in masterpieces that provide a unique view of society. His camera shows us how people experience their world and allows us to forget ours. Standing on the side lines of events, he observes them and does not go into polemics or explanations, but his deeply humane point of view remains clear through his unique documentary method. Read Nico Marzano’s essay about the program and explore the titles below.
