Profession: Producer, Film Director
Fernand Melgar (1961) focuses on the situation of immigrants in Switzerland, exploring their status and the nature of the bureaucratic system by looking at particular institutions: in The Fortress (La Fortresse, 2008), which won the Golden Leopard in Locarno, it was a center for asylum-seekers, and in Special Flight (Le Vol spécial, 2011) it was a detention facility. Both films were shown at the One World Film Festival in Prague.
