Five editions of the arthouse festival and 20 years of our historic Rome film club. These are the main ingredients of a cultural offering which goes outside the box and definitely beyond any well-trodden tracks. 11 full length films and 12 shorts in the competition, special events and apart from the competition, national premieres: entirely dedicated to journeys and related themes, this selection by Cinema Detour, offered to the Rome audience on the occasion of our birthday, is unforgettable.

The Festival is supported by the Department of Culture and Youth Policy of the Lazio Region; with partnership of the Libraries of Rome and Multi-ethnic Rome and in collaboration with Moving Docs, Doc.it, Creative Europe Media, Il Mandarino, Luci dalla Cina. We open on 5th November with an evening event, celebrating 100 years since the Russian Revolution and the first 20 years of Detour, with the film October directed by Sergej Ėjzenštejn (1928) with a live musical accompaniment.

The silent film Alice in Wonderland directed by W. W. Young in 1915 and accompanied by a soundtrack will be the closing film on the 26th November, before the final prize giving.

The programme is enriched by three notable films outside the competition: Poesia Sin Fin by Alejandro Jodorowsky (2016) and Miles Ahead by and with Don Cheadle, on the life of the great jazz genius Miles Davis, its premiere here in Rome.

For those into sport, we are showing the fascinating The Dolphin man, shot in Greece, on the life of the great French free-diver Jacques Mayol, the so-called Dolphin man. A journey into the travels of the man who has revolutionised the world of free-diving and deep sea diving.

The programme of the competition, which livens up the weekends of November, comprises premieres and impressive new discoveries. Two juries will decide the winners. The jury for the full length films is made up of the Chair Vittorio Moroni, director, author and screenwriter, Lea Tafuri, screenwriter and Luca Mandrile, director and editor. The jury for the shorts will have as Chair Gianclaudio Cappai, director and author, Giovanna Addivinola, editor and festival organiser and Paolo Cavalcanti, music industry producer and organiser of festivals and visual arts exhibitions.

Among the full length films, we have Punk à chien by Remi Mazet from France in which a lonely and disillusioned outsider travels the roads of France accompanied by a dog, living by expedience until he realises that something is not quite right with his dog.

The documentary Flat Tyre – An American Music Dream by Ugo di Faenza follows an incredible musical journey crossing the USA by “The Third Class”, a group of young Neapolitan musicians searching for the deep roots of American popular music.

Sagre Balere by Alessandro Stevanon tells the story of Omar, who grew up on the edge of Milan and who was fated to be a body shop mechanic, was instead inspired by the voices of the golden years of popular music and listening to Italy’s leading disco, the Studio Zeta of Angelo Zibetti, we follow his long tour around all the regions of North Italy in the twentieth year of his career.

Istanbul Echoes by Giulia Frati analyses the rapid process of gentrification of Istanbul. In only five years the working class areas have been demolished, and their residents displaced. A worrying situation which draws the attention of some young militants and, in particular, a group of hip-hop activists. Skilfully giving a background rhythm to her film with urban ambient sounds, Giulia Frati follows this transformation of the social fabric of the city in just a decade.

A Paradise Too Far by the Canadian Denis Langlois follows the footsteps of the siblings Samuel and Émilie, both affected by a mild form of autism, where they set off on a snowmobile to search for the paradise where everyone says their mother, who is dead, has gone. The journey of Samuel and Émilie is at the same time geographical and spiritual, really putting their capacities to the test and explores the limits of their complex relationship.

Anissa 2002 by Fabienne Facco recounts the history and the escape of Anissa, an adolescent Moroccan bride.

Transitory Lives by Thomas Kunstler and Dimitris Lambridis: tells the story of the parallel journeys of three Syrian refugees from the shores of Lesvos to the heart of continental Europe and their exhausting attempts to integrate in the new world, their hopes and their disillusions.

Mingong by Davide Crudetti confronts a very current reality: the mass migration of millions of Chinese workers who are pouring from the countryside into the coastal cities searching for work. ‘Mingong’ literally means peasant labourer. A voyage into the times of the old China which is disappearing today, a voyage intended to intercept the millions of Chinese who are moving from the country towards the cities by the sea.

Among the shorts, we show The Edge by the Russian Alexandra Averyanova in which an old woman lives in a little railway station, deeply lost in the countryside. Every day, for many years, she walks the train tracks. The only event in the life of the old woman is when a train goes through her station without stopping.

The Troubled Troubadour by Sébastien Simon and Forest Ian Etsler is a surreal road movie with elements of a comedy, a Western and an allegory, on the timeless story of a man facing up to his own death.

Distancia by Cristian Perez Scigliano is narrated by Raul, who arrives in London in search of a better future. Alone in one of the biggest cities in the world, he realises how difficult it is to live as an immigrant Shadows of Endurance by Diego Scarponi is a journey crossing two centuries of American history, comparing the lives of the people who actually live in the county of Harlan, an area stripped of its identity: with the heritage of oral histories told by the Italian author Alessandro Portelli in over 30 years of research in the field, about the lack of work, relationships, future and hope.
