Masterclasses and Meetings
Masterclass by Nicolas Klotz and Elisabeth Perceval
Thursday November 25, cinema La Compagnia, 11:30 am - Free admission
(French with simultaneous translation into English)
Restless and seductive, unstable, and vibrant, the cinema of Nicolas Klotz and Elisabeth Perceval has been reinventing itself for forty years to escape the rules of an increasingly homologating film industry to soar towards new forms of the art of moving images.
At the center there is research for the political gesture, as men keep testing themselves in the society, testing their possibilities to create new relationships, new thinking, and new communities.
The two directors will hold a Masterclass on Thursday, November 25 at 11:30 am at the Cinema La Compagnia, thanks to their presence in Florence for Burning Borders, the first retrospective ever dedicated to their film production.
After this appointment the two directors will be in France to hold a personal exhibition at the Centre Pompidou from December 2nd , 2021 to January 2nd , 2022.

Among the most different and relevant directors who have emerged on the international scene in the last 10 years there is Michelangelo Frammartino.
