The Shalter,
Director, Fernand Melgar
Documentary, Swiss, 2014


A winter spent in the heart of an emergency shelter for homeless people in Lausanne. At the entrance to this hidden bunker there unfolds every night the same dramatic ritual, leading to occasionally violent confrontations. The watchmen have the difficult task of “sorting the poor”: women and children first, men later if there is room. Even if the shelter can hold 100 people, only 50 “chosen ones” will be allowed inside to receive a hot meal and a bed. The others know that the night will be a long one.


Directors Biography

Fernand Melgar was born into a family of Spanish unionists exiled to Tangiers (Morocco). In 1963, his parents smuggled him into Switzerland when he was two years old and they were emigrating as seasonal labourers. In the early eighties, he cut short his business studies in order to found, together with several friends, the Cabaret Orwell in Lausanne, soon a mecca for French-speaking Switzerland’s underground culture; later, he created the internationally renowned rock music venue La Dolce Vita, also in Lausanne. After endowing the night spot with a programme of creative video projections, he became a self-taught, freelance film director and producer. In 1983, he began shooting various experimental films and iconoclastic reportages for television. In 1985, he joined Climage, a collective under whose auspices he has directed his documentaries, many considered as benchmarks on the topics of immigration and identity. He has also edited several of Jacqueline Veuve’s films.
