Who’s Jack? It’s me, my person, everything I’ve been through, my entire journey here. The work of the directors Ilaria Ciavattini and Elsi Perino tells the story of Jack’s ftm transition. That is the story of Jack, who tells himself to the world and to the memory of himself for four years of shooting. The film was constructed following the time of the transformation of the female body and the coming into being of a man: of his physical form, of his feeling, of his acting, of his suffering.

The Val Pellice in Piedmont, Italy, has been the theatre of a particular phenomenon for some time now. The almost depopulated territory has seen the arrival of new people in search of a job and a new life: they are asylum seekers, from different African countries, people who find themselves on hold, waiting for a decision about their stay to arrive sooner or later. Six young men came from Gambia and Sierra Leone. They are all on the run, and meet in a mountainous environment, so different from what they are familiar with. Waiting gradually transforms into an activity: the six form the first Curling team (a game they didn’t know at all, before) with the asylum seekers as members.

MISTER WONDERLAND



PAGINA PRECEDENTE Home

Mister Wonderland recounts the remarkable story of Sylvester Z. Poli, a humble artisan who emigrated from Italy to America at the end of the 19th century — only to become the greatest theater impresario of his time. The film chronicles his journey from rural Tuscany to the Roaring Twenties, revealing how a migrant’s ingenuity shaped the movie-going experience as we know it. Crossing continents and generations, Mister Wonderland sets out to find what remains today of Sylvester’s theaters and the communities they used to serve.

Vulnerabile bellezza



PAGINA PRECEDENTE Home

Among the rubble of the houses and farms destroyed by the earthquake of 2016, while demolishment and rebuilding continue, the film finds the human space, intimate and inviolate, of a young family, and makes the mind of the viewer levitate between the skies and the enchanting lands of that piece of Italy with its harmony. Following the passing of the seasons, Manuele Mandolesi’s film tells with discretion, while remaining at a very deep level of investigation, the life of a family of breeders, Michela, Stefano and their two young sons Diego and Emma, in the most difficult moment of their history.

“Mine is an impossible dream: to film as my father filmed, as a shepherd, without thinking, without time. Oskar Alegria, director, writer and protagonist of the film, has lost an island and this is the statement with which he is going to go in search of it. “The island in the middle of the river” (in Basque: zumiriki) was swallowed up by the waters following the construction of a dam.

Cuentos del Río



PAGINA PRECEDENTE Home

During the summer break, the fortress ruins overlooking the village of El Castillo on San Juan River, Nicaragua, turn into a stage for a local theatre group. The river is part of a natural passage between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. It tells the story of 500 years of colonisation, exploitation of resources, trade and transportation and over 70 failed canal projects. The group works on a play about the history of the river and the numerous travellers that tried to control it. Pirates meet conquerors, engineers fight against indigenous chiefs. Around the play, the young actors reflect on their own identity and the future of the country in the the context of the new Chinese canal project.

WELCOME TO SODOM



PAGINA PRECEDENTE Home

Agbogloshi, Accra is proven to be one of most poisonous places. It is the largest electronic waste dump in the world. It. About 6000 women, men and children live and work here. They call it “Sodom”. Every year about 250.000 tons of sorted out computers, smartphones, air conditions tanks and other devices from a far away electrified and digitalized world end up here. Shipped to Ghana illegally. This is the place where the curse of the digital consumer madness becomes manifest. Sodom is the true end of our modern digitalized world. And it will most probably be the final destination of the tablet, the smart phone, the computer you buy tomorrow.

VAARHEIM



PAGINA PRECEDENTE Home

In the middle of the North Sea, east of the Shetland Islands, there is a tiny archipelago called Out Skerries where, until not so long ago, 70 people lived; there are 20
of them now. The fishing factories have shut down because there were no more
fish; fishermen, like Julie’s husband, had to look for better fortune somewhere else.
As the number of inhabitants fell, the schools shut down too; and Julie had to say
goodbye to her adolescent children alike. What might seem a sad fairy tale of the
past is instead the present of a young mother and her little girl, who live immersed
in an almost imaginary space-time dimension
