Italy, 2021, 8'


A homosexual figure within a Christian symbolic context, Ninetta’s life is torn between the precepts of the traditional Catholic society of Calabria and her willingness to discover and assert her own identity. Accompanied by two mentors, she will meet her destiny through a spiritual journey that will lead her to a fresh approach to the divine dimension. Receiving her baptism by immersion in the water of a spring, she will be able to recognize the invisible, and finally perceive the spirit.

A visionary short film of great stylistic sophistication about an ancestral journey that is a return to the origins but also to a primeval notion of purity: atonement is necessary for spiritual rebirth as crucifixion is a necessary step to incarnation. Between the ethnography of Ernesto De Martino’s and Cecilia Mangini’s rituals and the irreverence of Carmelo Bene’s cinema, this film is characterized by shamanic sensuality that identifies in female nature the key to a new spirituality of the bodies, not only those filmed, but also the human and mechanical one of the filming eye – equally sanctified, made of solemn lightness.

The event is finished.
