Regista in sala| Meet the author

In a time when belief no longer has a true face and outrage and war threatens to take centerstage, this documentary searches for the secret of peace and compromise. This is a stirring story of one cross-cultural family in conflict over religion. Over the course of 5 years, the filmmaker turns the camera on herself and her nearest to shed light on the challenges of living with Islam as a modern day woman.

Untitled, Michael Glawogger, Monika Willi
Germania e Austria, 2017, 107′, v.o. con voce narrante in italiano / o.v. with Italian voice over

After the sudden death of Michael Glawogger in April 2014, his longstanding collaborator and editor Monika Willi realizes a film out of the footage Glawogger shot over the course of 4 months and 19 days in the Balkans, Italy, North and West Africa. A journey out into the world with open eyes and open mind – observing, listening, experiencing. Serendipity is the concept and the only rule to apply – in editing and creating the film just as it was in shooting. Narrated by Nada Malanima.

Before my feet touch the ground, Daphni Leef
Israele, 2017, 78′, v.o. con sottotitoli in inglese e italiano / o.v. English and Italian subtitles

July 2011, a young Israeli video editor named Daphni Leef decides to protest against rent prices by pitching a tent in the city center. Within a few days, a whole boulevard is full of tents because a modest protest against housing policy grew into a national protest movement for social justice. Daphni at first is combative and exuding an attractive idealism, she gradually becomes exhausted. As director, Daphni looks back on this turbulent period when she was transformed from a naive young woman into a celebrated and controversial national icon.
