Koltavanej_7 Sciesopoli, un luogo della memoria, Enrico Grisanti Italy, 2013, 18’, Italian with English subtitles A very special story in a unique place; through some short testimonials,
this documentary tells the story of Sciesopoli, the former fascist colony
of Selvino (BG) that, after the war, housed more than 800 children and young Jews, survived the concentration camps. A story primarily told through images, which wants to attract the viewer’s gaze toward those places, those woods, those rooms and those corridors that were crossed by all these girls and boys who had suffered so much in the previous years and who were trying to make sense
of themselves and their own existence probably right there. Trailer Sciesopoli Cantonese rice, Mia Ma France, 2015, 50’, French and Chinese with Italian and English subtitles A round trip between my family and Chinese people recently arrived in France to find meaning in my ignorance of my father tongue, Cantonese. Trailer Riz Cantonais recadrée We cannot go there now my Dear, Carol Mansour Lebanon 2014, 42’, Arabic with Italian and English subtitles Palestinian refugees have been living
in Syria since they had been forced to flee Palestine in 1948. As the Syrian crisis intensifies, they alongside the Syrians have been affected by the war. Their story, however, is more complex. By fleeing Syria and seeking refuge in Lebanon they are becoming a special category of refugees: they are refugees twice over. As Palestinians they are not entirely welcome in Lebanon.
As refugees, their travel documents are not recognized. As Palestinians, this is the second time they lose everything and find themselves
once more homeless and stateless. This documentary film tells part
of the story of those twice-over refugees. A story where memories were awakened between one exodus and the other, and where loss invades all things striking the very self.
A story where the causes and consequences are known, but not the closure. A story where lives
are continuously being rebuilt and improvised awaiting the return.

Jiménez Díaz Mexico 2013, 28’ Mayan-Tseltal with Italian subtitles The prayers have been lost in the 
town of Tenejapa, there’s no one who asks for life, illnesses and problems have arrived. The ancient ones,
those of the “costumbre”, are no longer accounted for. Alonso Sántis López
is one of the few traditional prayer men who have been marked by service to the town. His work consists of asking the gods for the “bankilales” (elder brothers) and watching over the lives of the people. During the carnival, a ritual
in which the new year begins and
with it another period of responsibility
of the “costumbre”, we meet “El Nail.” ElNail_3 Terra di transito, Paolo Martino Italy 2014, 54’, Italian with English subtitles Like thousands of his peers fleeing from war, Rahell undertook an arduous journey from Middle East to Europe without visas and passports, trying
to join a branch of the family living for years in Sweden. Landed in Italy, however, he finds out that the Dublin Regulation, the law that imposes
to all refugees to reside in the first
EU country they enter, separates
him from his destination.
Italy for Rahell is nothing more
than a land of transit. Trailer TERRA DI TRANSITO Jashn-e Taklif, Firouzeh Khosrovani Iran 2014, 60’, Farsi with Italian and English subtitles The hall is packed with chattering Iranian schoolgirls wearing lilac robes and white hijabs. An imam explains to them that at nine years old they have reached the “age of duty.” This, he says, is the moment at which puberty begins, bringing with it all the accompanying religious precepts. Carefree days are over, and from now on the angel on the right shoulder and the devil on the left will be there watching, weighing up good and evil. At the instigation of the imam, the girls dutifully chant when they should or should not wear the hijab. Greeted by loud cheering, a whipped cream version of the Kaaba is sliced up. Eight years later, filmmaker Firouzeh Khosrovani visits two of the children she filmed: the cousins and former best friends Melika and Maryam. Maryam wears her hijab with full conviction and shares her existential doubts with God. Melika dreams of a career as an actress, paints her nails, and posts selfies on Instagram. Trailer fest-image-02-LOW CHIOSTRO MINORE – SALA CLARA ROSSO COLETTI 20.00 Screenings The sound before the fury, Lola Frederich, Martin Sarrazac France 2014, 88’, o.v. Italian and English subtitles

In January 1972, Archie Shepp recorded the album Attica Blues as an homage to the Attica prison rebellion, 40 years later he revisits this music. We follow him along with 25 musicians through days of intense rehearsal to the opening concert in Paris. “The sound before the fury” interweaves this narrative with images from the rebellion, and interviews of the leaders recorded in 1972. We witness Shepp's determination to transmit, beyond the notes, the meaning and feeling of his music; we discover the ties, some intimate, that the musicians have with the Attica events.

 Trailer archie silhouette Hacia una primavera rosa, Mario de la Torre Spain 2014, 17’ Spanish with Italian and English subtitles Young members of the Arab LGBT community have to live clandestinely.

Trailer hacia una primavera rosa Al Karama, Marco Di Noia Italy 2014, 47’, Arabic and English with Italian and English subtitles ‘Al Karama’ is the Arabic word for ‘dignity’. The project explores the complexities of the Arab Spring through a multimedia approach. “In March and December 2011 I travelled along the shores of the south coast of Mediterranean sea, capturing on camera the fall of the regimes and the aftermath in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt. I wanted to understand what was happening in those squares, why people were protesting and what they wanted to achieve. It was my first time in the Arab world and my first time doing video-journalism. Trailer foto_alkarama-low

MUSEO DI SANTA CATERINA 19.00 Saluti inaugurali | Opening greetings Inaugurazione mostra fotografica | Opening photographic exhibition FAITH di | by MAURO ROMANZI CHIOSTRO MAGGIORE – AUDITORIUM 20.00 Concerto | Concert Orchestra della Roggia 21.00   Proiezioni | Screenings Cabaret Crusades: The Horror Show File, Wael Shawky Francia / France 2010, 31’49 arabo con sottotitoli in italiano e inglese |Arabic with Italian and English subtitles The film is a translation of causes and effects of the religiously sanctioned military campaigns in the form of images based on a reconstruction of events seen through the eyes of those who had to confront the invasion. It provides a precise description of the places
in the Middle East and Europe that formed the backdrop for the early Crusades. To bring these episodes alive, the production uses highly expressive 200-year-old marionettes from the Lupi collection in Turin. The marionettes are moved by clearly visible strings and wear the costumes of the characters who were present in the Christian armies of Europe and in
the Muslim armies during the conflicts. Though the subject is based on historical documents and facts, what emerges is a surreal and mythical atmosphere that blends drama
and cynicism, telling a story of remote events that could hardly be more topical today. Watch the trailer still1030_00003_0   Those Who Said No, Nima Sarvestani Svezia, Iran | Sweden, Iran 2014, 89’, v.o. sottotitoli in italiano e inglese | o.v. Italian and English subtitles After decades of silence, survivors
and relatives of the victims of a mass atrocity establish a People’s Court.
They will testify against a crime carried out by the Iranian regime, a crime that has been kept secret from the public for more than 25 years. Those responsible for these crimes now hold high government office in Iran. Their secret would be safe, if it was not for the
efforts of some survivors. In 2013 an international tribunal, the Iran Tribunal, is convened in The Hague Court of Justice. Now is their chance to put Iran on trial for their crimes against humanity. This is a film about people who refuse to be silenced, people who fight for the right to tell their story in court.

4-year-old Elizabeth was born in
the family of former ballet dancers
and she has spent most of her life
in the ballet with her parents. She knows all the members of the Estonia Ballet company by their names and knows
all the performances by heart as
she has seen them so many times. Elizabeth loves, or to be exact, adores ballet, but would it be like this if she
had other choices? This is little Elizabeth’s journey in the magical
world of ballet, where real life meets illusion and fairytales may come true.

 IMG_0736   Léone, mére & fils, Lucile Chaufour Francia | France 2014, 41’, v.o. sottotitoli in italiano e inglese | o.v. Italian and English subtitles Léone, the owner of a bar-restaurant
in a Parisian suburb, is a wise-cracking ogress who swings her impressive figure between tables of regulars. All curves, peroxide hair and quickfire repartee, Léone is a woman in a men’s world where her word is law. Among them
is her son, Patrick, who is still a child
and only has eyes for her. LEONE_still2   Wir waren rebellen, Katharina von Schroeder, Florian Schewe Germania |Germany 2014, 93’, v.o. sottotitoli in italiano e inglese | o.v. Italian and English subtitles

The documentary film tells the story
of Agel, a former child soldier who returns to South Sudan to help build up his country. The film accompanies him over a period of two years – from South Sudan gaining its independence in 2011 to the renewed outbreak of civil war in December 2013. As captain of the national basketball team of South Sudan – the youngest country in the world – Agel coaches the team through their very first international match against Uganda. The conflicts within the team bear a striking resemblance to the political problems festering across the country. An injury ends up forcing Agel to leave the basketball team,
and he goes on to form an NGO that provides the country’s most remote areas with clean drinking water. His journeys give him time to reflect on his country – on how it was, how it is, and how he hopes it will be one day.
