Monday at the Cinema is a series of screenings dedicated to Italian contemporary cinema promoted in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
Director: 9 young film-makers
Running Time: 94'
For the 90th anniversary of the Istituto Luce, nine up-and-coming directors were given access to archival footage from WW1 to the late 20th century. Each presents a ten-minute short film aiming to build up a composite image of Italy. The result is an album full of different narratives which speaks of the outbreak of war, pleas for peace; building collapses and reconstruction; recollections of lost landscapes, and (possibly) lost realities; miracles, superstitions and dreams.
