Omar is not just a young man. He is the thousands and thousands of men and women who start this dangerous journey through the desert and the sea, victims of abuse, violence, robbery, torture, and illegal detention.
Many of them die.
This film is dedicated to them, and to their broken dreams.
A number of little girls lie asleep between the intersections and the architectural elements of the Casa del Fascio in Como, design by Giuseppe Terragni—one of the most important modernist architecture. Flashlights shine in the space, making the images appear for an instant–just the time necessary for the exposed frames to register with the viewer’s gaze before being plunged back into darkness. Around the sleeping bodies, some presences developed in CGI animation occupy the architecture and move around the space in obscure activities: nothing of their actions is visible to us, except in the fragments in which the image shows itself under the flashlight. Monelle is a circular film without any narrative or hierarchy, without a beginning or an end, and it circumscribes a place of promiscuity and ambiguity between the different formats used—35mm and CGI animation—and the approaches of two opposites film attitudes—the structural cinema and the horror genre.
“Food for thought” is a short film with a simple message: Does it have to go this far for you to get it? We don’t have anything against some occasional comfort food. We actually quite enjoy it. But constant unhealthy diet and physical inactivity are silent killers responsible for millions of deaths worldwide. It happens slowly, but eventually it happens, and sadly those deaths never end up on the front page of the newspapers. This is our small contribution to World Health Day. To raise awareness on this important issue.
