23.40 OMAGGIO A | TRIBUTE TO MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI
Tutto bianco, Morena Campani
Italia, Francia | Italy, France 2015, 50’, v.o., sottotiloli italiano | o.v. Italian subtitles
The documentary is intended as a journey to discover the places of Michelangelo Antonioni, the shooting locations of his films, the emotional places, the places of the soul. Places where emptiness and silence powerfully dominate, where the visible and invisible blend in a gaze. One of the interpreters of the last film, Fanny Ardant, will take us to discover the perspectives between life and cinema, in a continuous parallel that will let half-view the depth of being a woman according to Antonioni.

El Gran Vuelo, Carolina Astudillo
Spagna | Spain 2014, 60’, v.o. sottotitoli in italiano e inglese | o.v. Italian and English subtitles
In the early years of the Franco dictatorship, Clara Pueyo Jornet, an active militant in the Communist Party, escapes from Les Corts prison in Barcelona passing through the front door. From that moment, she vanishes without a trace. She had been living on the run and she sought to escape from the rigidity of her own party. Her story is also the story of the women of her time and their struggle for freedom in a society that tried to repress them.
A Mother’s Dream – Ma Na Sapna, Valerie Gudenus
Svizzera | Switzerland 2013, 86’, v.o. sottotitoli in italiano e inglese | o.v. Italian and English subtitles
A mother’s dream – Ma na sapna follows six women and their broker through different stages of surrogacy in a clinic in the Northwest of India. It explores the women’s hopes, the joys and conflicts they experience while living together and the inevitable moment of having to give up the newborn child. “Ma na sapna” is a subtle portrait of six mothers on their surrogate journey, giving them a voice that otherwise remains unheard.
Ninì, Gigi Giustiniani
Italia | Italy 2014, 65’, v.o. sottotitoli in italiano e inglese | o.v. Italian and English subtitles
In the summer of 1932, Gabriele Boccalatte and Ninì Pietrasanta meet each other at the Mont Blanc: they climb together, they fall in love. Since that moment to 1936, the year of their wedding, they live their great mountaineering season and they open, as climbing partners, some of the most difficult routes in the Alps. To keep track of their challenges, they start writing some diaries and taking pictures. Ninì, one of the few mountaineers women of those years, brings with her, in the mountain wall a 16mm camera. In 1937 Lorenzo, their son, was born and in 1938 Gabriele dies, falling down from a wall. Ninì leaves the extreme alpinism to go along his life as a mother. A few years after the Ninì’s death, in 2000, her son Lorenzo finds in a trunk the footage shot by the mother.

Touching the Human History, a single moment, is enough to remind us our fragility, the beauty of the existence, the vital necessity of the Nature.
Waiting for the (t)rain, Simon Panay
Francia, Burkina-Faso | France, Burkina-Faso 2015, 25’, v.o. sottotitoli in italiano e inglese | o.v. Italian and English subtitles
A small village lost in a dusty desert in Burkina’s bush. Two times a week passes the train. Various food items and water bottles thrown by the passengers while passing by constitute the main income of the village, and the only source of water during dry season. Different portraits follow each others. The older ones have known slavery in the service of France, the young dream of distant horizons.
