The selected movie will be announced in due course. The film will be followed by a debate featuring Franklin Faculty Dr. Alison Vogelaar and Dr. Fintan Hoey, and Thomas Paggini, journalist at RSI, Radiotelevisione Svizzera. Moderator: Peter Schiesser.

The session will be open to all and entrance is free. For more information on the festival, please visit the Festival website and Facebook page.
