Doc at Work Future Campus - Tomorrow's film laboratory
Coming to terms with the past and its wounds; meeting others to capture their mystery; reinterpreting reality to grasp its secret aspects; playing with the present to imagine future scenarios; exploring the most intimate spheres of oneself and one's body.
These are some of the themes at the center of the films in the program at the Doc at Work - Future Campus of the 63rd Festival dei Popoli, a path of excellence that presents a selection of the most interesting talents of contemporary cinema. Ten films that push us to imagine the possible paths of the cinema of the real in the years to come, to probe its undercurrents and unexpected looks. Women directors who come from schools of diverse geographical, linguistic and cultural backgrounds; even more diverse are their countries of origin and the places to which they have decided to direct their gaze.
