Kusama – Infinity

by Heather Lenz
USA, 2018, 85’

Now the top-selling female artist in the world, Yayoi Kusama overcame impossible odds to bring her radical artistic vision to the world stage. For decades, her work pushed boundaries that often alienated her from both her peers and those in power in the art world. Kusama was an underdog with everything stacked against her: the trauma of growing up in Japan during World War II, life in a dysfunctional family that discouraged her creative ambitions, sexism and racism in the art establishment, mental illness in a culture where that was particularly shameful and even continuing to pursue and be devoted to her art full time on the cusp of her 90s. In spite of it all, Kusama has endured and has created a legacy of artwork that spans the disciplines of painting, sculpture, installation art, performance art, poetry and literary fiction. After working as an artist for over six decades, people around the globe are experiencing her installation Infinity Mirrored Rooms in record numbers, as Kusama continues to create new work every day.

BANSKY: Exit Through the Gift Shop
by Bansky
USA, GB, 2010, 87’

This is the inside story of Street Art – a brutal and revealing account of what happens when fame, money and vandalism collide. Exit Through the Gift Shop follows an eccentric shop-keeper turned amateur film-maker as he attempts to capture many of the world’s most infamous vandals on camera, only to have a British stencil artist named Banksy turn the camcorder back on its owner with wildly unexpected results.

Saturday 30th November 9.00 pm
Show Le cose che succedono di notte
with Debora Petrina and Tiziano Scarpa

Le cose che succedono di notte (Things that happen by night) is a show made of music and words.
Debora Petrina, singer-songwriter and composer, winner of Premio Ciampi, meets the writer Tiziano Scarpa, winner of Premio Strega with the novel Stabat mater.
On stage they play alternatively music and rhyme stories. On keyboards, guitar and voice, Debora connects herself to unknown worlds, like a kind of electronic visionary. She sings with scenic presence her beautiful sensual lively innovating songs. In between the songs, Tiziano narrates about men, trees, solitary animals looking for love and truth, and finding what they deserve. They are rhyme fairytales for adults. They are hilarious stories, sometimes dramatic, by Scarpa’s new book Una libellula di città (published by Minimum Fax).
Songs and musics by Debora Petrina (voice, keyboards and guitar).
Stories and rhymes by Tiziano Scarpa.
Thanks to Teatro Stabile del Veneto e Lorenzo Maragoni for the collaboration

In post-war Poland, renowned painter Wladyslaw Strzemiński works as a professor at the National School of Fine Arts in Łódź. A great artist and co-creator of the theory of Unism, Strzemiński became famous before the Second World War. His students still treat him like the “messiah of modern painting”, but university authorities and the Ministry of Culture have a very different opinion. Unlike artists loyal to the doctrines of socialist realism and fulfilling Party tasks, Strzemiński does not compromise his art. He refuses to comply with Party regulations, and he is eventually expelled from the university and the artists’ union. But Strzemiński’s students continue to support him, visiting him for private lectures. They pen down his Theory of Vision and listen to his critique of their work. But jobless Strzemiński, impaired due to a missing arm and leg, soon falls into poverty and poor health as the Communist authorities remain persistent in their actions to ruin him…

Imparare a produrre cibo senza sprecare le risorse ambientali, rispettando le comunità locali, i loro sistemi di produzione e le loro conoscenze del territorio, e valorizzando la biodiversità sono alcuni dei passi che dobbiamo fare per raggiungere una sostenibilità ambientale. I film proposti toccano alcuni di questi temi e ci invitano a provare a costruire un mondo in cui poter vivere in armonia con la natura.

Introduction by Legambiente.

di Cyril Dion e Mélanie Laurent
Francia, 2015, 118’
In seguito alla pubblicazione di uno studio che annuncia la possibile scomparsa di una parte dell’umanità da qui al 2100, Cyril Dion e Mélanie Laurent intraprendono un emozionante viaggio intorno al mondo per scoprire cosa potrebbe provocare questa catastrofe, ma soprattutto come evitarla. Partendo dagli esperimenti più riusciti nei campi dell’agricoltura, energia, architettura, economia e istruzione, i registi immaginano un nuovo futuro per noi e per i nostri figli. Risultato: una sorprendente, contagiosa e ottimista spinta al cambiamento, a partire già da domani.

Introduction by Silvia Bertazzo of La Bocalina Co.

Il film racconta la vita quotidiana di una famiglia allargata che vive al confine tra Toscana e Lazio producendo miele. C’è un padre dalle evidenti origini tedesche, una madre che dev’essere vissuta a lungo in Francia, quattro figlie dove spicca la maggiore, Gelsomina, e un’ospite, Coco. Allevano api, coltivano la terra e cercano di barcamenarsi tra regole igieniche europee e fatica quotidiana, inseguendo un ideale di indipendenza economica e rifiuto del consumismo. Una vita sul filo di un difficile equilibrio, dove le convinzioni del padre spesso diventano imposizioni autoritarie, dove la sopportazione della madre non sempre significa comprensione e dove Gelsomina cerca di conciliare senso del dovere e sogni di fuga. A mettere in crisi quel mondo così residuale arriva il programma di una scalcinata televisione locale condotto dalla presentatrice Milly Catena che promette «un sacco di soldi» al miglior produttore di prodotti alimentari locali. E che agli occhi di Gelsomina sembra fondere la speranza di un aiuto economico ma anche il sogno di una favola salvifica. 

Il film è stato realizzato rispettando il disciplinare “EcoMuvi”, che promuove la sostenibilità ambientale nella produzione audiovisiva.
Premio Speciale della Giuria al Festival di Cannes.

Introduzione by Angela Morandi of Morandi Dairy.

Germania/Italia, 2017, 90’
Il latte è amato come mai prima d’ora non solo in Europa, ma anche in Cina, ed è un business enorme. Il prodotto che un tempo romanticamente consideravamo naturale ed innocente, da molto si è trasformato in un prodotto industriale commercializzato in tutto il mondo, capace di fatturare cifre da capogiro per i top player del settore. In questo contesto fattori come la sostenibilità o il rispetto dei metodi di produzione tradizionali sono totalmente irrilevanti. Il sistema del latte rispecchia la costante ricerca globale di una crescita infinita e la follia della produzione alimentare industriale. Muovendosi tra Europa, Africa e Cina, il film mostra in modo lampante in che modo il sistema è interconnesso a livello mondiale. In gioco ci sono il nostro habitat, le nostre campagne, il nostro tessuto sociale, ma anche la nostra salute e quella delle generazioni a venire. Grazie al modello dell’industria del latte possiamo immaginare che tipo di agricoltura vogliamo per il futuro, esaminando le alternative già esistenti e capendo cosa cambiare e come migliorare.

“Un mondo fragile” narra la storia di Alfonso, un vecchio contadino che, dopo diciassette anni, torna dalla sua famiglia per accudire il figlio Gerardo, gravemente malato. Al suo ritorno, ritrova la donna che era un tempo la sua sposa, la giovane nuora e il nipote che non ha mai conosciuto, ma il paesaggio che lo aspetta sembra uno scenario apocalittico: vaste piantagioni di canna da zucchero circondano la casa e un’incessante pioggia di cenere, provocata dai continui incendi per lo sfruttamento delle piantagioni, si abbatte su di loro. L’unica speranza è andare via, ma il forte attaccamento a quella terra rende tutto più difficile. Dopo aver abbandonato la sua famiglia per tanti anni, Alfonso ora cercherà di salvarla.
