Italian Independent Cinema
selected by Rapporto Confidenziale / Digital Magazine about Cinematic Culture
in collaboration with Dobia Lab / Creative and Artistic Labs
A rich and heterogeneous selection, polymorphic and polyphonic. A mishmash of stories made of contradictions and differences, images and suggestions. Eight different works, with different techniques and styles, but sharing the same indipendent attitude and the need to create moving images regardless of everything and everyone. From the breathtaking animations by Virgilio Villoresi, to the “scratches” on film by Bennet Pimpinella, through the visionary madness of Giacomo Nanni and Gipi (screened for the first time outside Italy) and the faces and stories taken from the streets by Istituto Micropunta.
A kaleidoscope of dystonic images which we believe contains a wealth of brilliant insights and evidence of how the future and the present of what we used to call the seventh art is constantly able to reinvent itself while never losing its power to fascinate us. Because cinema is alive, and keeps fighting with us.
A part of this selection was shown at the X edition of DobiArtEventi 2011, from August 23rd to September 4th 2011, in Dobbia/Staranzano (Gorizia, Italy). www.rapportoconfidenziale.org/?p=14478
