Filmmaker Festival /

A distanza ravvicinata

July 1012.00

A 12-hour marathon, a stream of (un)consciousness, free associations and dissociations, where – as in Rorschach inkblot tests – images do not stop acting and reacting one upon the other. At a close distance. Tracing similarities, establishing unpredictable and unexpected kinships. A short circuit of rare, precious, scattered things (Bruno Oliviero’s Cattività; Chiara Caterina’s Sei ancora tu; Demetrio Giacomelli’s L’estinzione rende liberi… ). Collisions and connections, blurring the boundary between cinema and theatre, portrait and self-portrait, as in the works of Marie Losier, who will present some of her short films during the marathon. They are all born from an encounter, facing the greatest risk, the most ancient danger. Me and you. My eyes in yours.

During the marathon, we will show La città del teatro (produced by Santarcangelo Festival in collaboration with Riccione Teatro), the result of the Transfert per Kamera project. In summer 2020, five young filmmakers received an invitation to come to Santarcangelo Festival. The programme was even more extroverted than usual; an extraordinary vital energy was flowing through the city, preparing itself to welcome with curiosity the documentary filmmakers called to film it. In front of Chiara Caterina, Maria Giovanna Cicciari, Riccardo Giacconi, Enrico Maisto and Leandro Picarella there are Benjamin Kahn, Virgilio Sieni, El Conde de Torrefiel, Fanny & Alexander and ZimmerFrei (and their performances): this film is the result of their encounter.
