Synopsis

Canadian Premiere
Presented with the support of the Italian Institute of Culture in Montreal.

Le FIFA has chosen to honour Cosimo Terlizzi, visual artist and artistic director of the Asolo Art Film Festival with a carte blanche this year. His programme includes the following two titles:

Dentro di te c'è la terra / Inside You, There Is The Earth - Cosimo Terlizzi - 1h 23 min

The diary of a vacation. An island. A young inhabitant walks barefoot on the rocks, the thorns, the earth. A girl obsessed with her image on social media. The author observes the landscape and reflects on the artifice. Once back home, the city looks like a labyrinth that drives him to seek a way out and to rediscover new perspectives in nature.


Intertidal. Barene - Collettivo Confluenze - 14 min 45 s

The city of Venice with its lagoon is an example of a historic city that is at great risk of being
swallowed by water. "Intertidal. Barene" is aimed at raising awareness of the issue that this
ecosystem brings with it. A precise dialogue with the environment, consisting of natural
elements and put in relation to the elements created by humans. The dancing language
comes from a specific relationship with the location and perception through the lens of the
camera.
