(ITALIAN CHRONICLES - FOCUS on ALESSANDRO ROSSETTO)
BIBIONE BYE BYE ONE, by Alessandro Rossetto (Italy/Germany, 1999, 75’)
Bibione, the Adriatic Sea, 100 kilometres north of Venice. A black-and-white journey between characters and situations, in full unprecedented emersion. Again astraddle harsh realities and real absurdities, the movie camera seems to move in a world of its own that may be anywhere or nowhere, recording a memory that is being created during the summers that follow one another like interchangeable wedges that are ideally never-ending. Time and space blend together, becoming both bonding agent and setting. The passing of time is blocked for one day, the flow of summer allows itself to be grasped and reveals a wise and disquieting humanity that is both comical and bitter at the same time.
With the Director in-person.

8:30 PM
New York Women in Film and Television presents
ABC COLOMBIA, by Enrica Colusso (Italy/France, 2006, color, 88')
The film is an intimate portrait of a small rural community in a part of Colombia entirely controlled by paramilitary forces, rendered through the eyes of the children who grow up there, and are often forced into very difficult choices. The documentary follows the young protagonists in this problematic setting through an entire school year, exploring some of the realities that nurture and perpetuate the violence in Colombia.
With the Director in-person.
