Another point of view on nature, this time literary, through reading some songs in the company of guests and authors.
A screening of short films from among those that are not part of the competition of Food Film Fest:
CA’ LUMACO Italia, 2014, 9’, Production: Il palato italiano | Director: Francesco Piras
It is the story of a passion that clearly transpires in every frame of Francesco Piras’s work. The beautiful photography, the atmosphere at the same time created but natural, the inspiration of writing, the successful communication between the members of the Ferri family. There is no need to be actors when you transmit reality that is lived, sweated for and conquered. The quality of the product, the Norcino, is parallel to the quality of the cinematographic result.
COSI’ MANGIAVANO DI GIANCARLO ROLANDI - Italy, 2016, 77’, Category FOOD MOVIE/FICTION | Director: Giancarlo Rolandi
A wonderful portrait of what Italians do best. Food and Cinema. Giancarlo Rolandi leaves us in doubt s to awhether to use the conditional offering the best of Sordi, De Sica and Monicelli and the bitterness of the most prolific screenwriters of the history of Cinema, Age and Scarpelli. In “Così mangiavano di Giancarlo Rolandi” culture manifests itself in such beauty that it blends the art of small things with the cinematographic dream. Misery and nobility, bread and fantasy, spaghetti, great comforter of every penalty: all at the cinema.
FORMAGGIO DI FOSSA BRANCALEONI - Italy, 2015, 8’, Category DOC | Director: Francesco Piras
Once a year, in the second half of November, there is a pit that opens to give birth to a particular spring fruit. In the small village of Roncofreddo, the Brancaleoni family has been working for three generations to refine cheeses inside the Fossa dell'Abbondanza. The freshly-threshed straw and the aromas of the earth will keep the precious cheeses for a hundred days. After long a wait, father and daughter will be able to enjoy the fruit of the hard work of the past year.
MR BLUE FOOTED BOOBY, - Ecuador, 3’, Category ANIMATION | Director: Gino Baldeon
The booby is a bird of the Galapagos islands that in the animated short film created by Gino Baldeón becomes human. The young director has managed, with his team, to represent an interpretable dream, rightly called a painting in animation. Restlessness, beauty, charm, elegance and cynicism are concentrated in a few seconds. Truly, animation is not only for children; it reflects imagination as cinema shows reality. Beautiful.
GARÇON! - France, 2016, 15’, Category FOOD MOVIE | Director: Olivier Lallart
Mathieu, a waiter at the Abbey restaurant, will face the worst customer he has ever served!
