October 12: Nanni Moretti's "Santiago, Italy"
A documentary film that tells, through the words of the protagonists and various material of the time, the months following the coup d'état of September 11, 1973, which ended the democratic government of Salvador Allende in Chile. Focusing in particular on the role of the Italian embassy in Santiago, which sheltered hundreds of opponents of General Pinochet's regime, allowing them to reach Italy. Nanni Moretti in a work that perhaps speaks more of the present than of the past, clearly pays tribute to the attitude that the Italian Embassy had at the time towards the political refugees.
October 19: 'Letto' by Kirill Serebrennikov
It tells the life of Soviet rock legend Viktor Tsoi and how he was initially embraced by another Leningrad cultural musician, Mike Naumenko, and his wife, Natasha. It uses rock'n'roll and popular music from both Russia and the United States to tell the story of two Russian rock stars of the 1980s, Viktor Tsoi of Kino and Mike Naumenko of Zoopark. A trip where there is no shortage of covers from Talking Heads, Iggy Pop, T-Rex, Lou Reed and David Bowie.
October 26: Come and see Elem Klimov
The hero of the movie is Flyora, a 16 year old. If at the beginning of the story Flyora is a boy like so many others of his age, as he learns the horror of Nazi executions, his face is transfiguring and aging. The changes in Flyora's face are the mirror of the face of war. Perhaps one of the best antiwar movies ever made.
Complementing the usual exhibitions, a short film will be screened before the sessions by Hugo Olim, one of the Madeiran artists included in the Porta 33 Ilhestic project, a contemporary art script for the city of Funchal, curated by Miguel von Hafe Pérez .
This work 'Head, Tail, Rail' has integrated several festivals in countries such as France, Canada, Germany, Australia, Spain and Portugal at IndieLisboa – International Film Festival.
