" Satyagraha "

Dir. Nuanda Sheridan

" A story of love and reincarnation told through the voyage of an elderly woman travelling through her previous lives. Dreamlike atmospheres, on the border between life and death, intermingle with the colours of the far East, of African lands and the rhythms of bohemian dances, visions that reveal sexuality, secrets and torments of a timeless love.

" ZOE " 
Dir. Iara Magdaleno

Brazil

"Facts are sonorous but among the facts there is a murmuring. It is the murmuring that frightens me." Clarice Lispector

Synopsis 
MUSIC. REBELION. DISCOVER. 
Roaming through a particularly sonorous world, a composer develops a relationship with his own compositions, memories and desires. Sets of uncontained sounds begin to manipulate the story, finding a way to play a role as much as the characters they chose to unfold its thrilling storytelling.

Project 
The film has a non-conventional structure created from a sound installation as scenery, subtle choreography and sound dramaturgy.

RAGFF Venezia 2018 

Winner Best Documentary Short-Film

" New Faustian World " 
Dir. Piero Passaro

Writter. Raffaele Quattrone

Italy

Bologna (Italy), 2018. In a resigned world where the human fate seems to be returned outside of their chances, Raffaele Quattrone tells, walking among the streets of the city, the artistic practice of 17 international artists with a Faustian Factor: a strong and recognizable artistic identity and an exasperated virtuosity that allows them to be in rivalry with the endless possibilities of the computer, with the precision of the photograph, with the reactions and relationships of video and performance. NewFaustianWorld is the world of these painters that as the Faust of Goethe, emblem of the modern man, have an inner tension with which they don’t be satisfied with ordinariness but let the extraordinary be their philosophy of life taking up the challenges ahead of them.

The visual language of the film, halfway between documentary and fiction, pays homage to the personality of each artist recreating in the single scenes the world that we find in the artworks of these artists. It is similar to enter the work, the creative world of the artist.

Based on the book of the same name by Raffaele Quattrone and published by 24 Ore Cultura – Gruppo Il Sole 24 Ore

BEST RETRO AVANT GARDE SHORT FILM


" DIVA "

 Dir. Adam Csoka Keller

 United Kingdom

Cries of ‘DIVA’ are known to ring out in the drag bar as well as the opera house. In this surreal 
queer fantasia on classical music, Baroque iconography, and scandalous first-century verse, drag 
prima donna Divina de Campo premieres an original operatic aria with chamber orchestra by composer 
V. R. Alevizos. Europe’s historic concert halls set the stage for an ecstatic meeting of two art 
traditions which traffic in extremes of gender performance, enacting a space where the drag bar 
diva and the opera house diva share the same skin.

"Il Pittore della Tenda "

Dir. Renato Lisanti

Italy

After his father is killed by the mafia, the Sicilian farmer Emanuele Modica takes up his paint brush as if it were a gun, under the full persuasion that no other means could better shake public conscience.

Palermo, 1969. A strange large green tent fills Politeama square. Inside, many canvases express pain, rage, subjugation, a desire for justice and only a faint trace of hope. These are the works of the young farmer Emanuele Modica and represent his protest against the Mafia: his peaceful revenge against those who took his father's life. From this grief the artist was actually born, "the painter of the tent" who has since then been exhibiting his paintings on Italian squares, in the shadow of this tent which for 30 years has also been his home. Over the years Modica has obtained notable success, has been appreciated by artist critics and culture experts in the whole of the peninsul, and nowadays his provocative exhibitions are still remembered. Despite this he has continued to live ...
