National premiere

in the presence of the director


A documentary film that is a portrait of a film critic as seen by a filmmaker. Contemporary cinema manipulates reality by hiding itself; this experiment by Luca Ferri manifests its opposite explicitly and overtly as an act of resistance. Through a deliberately rigid structure the filmmaker becomes superfluous during the very act of filming.


Production: Lab80 Film in association with 5e6 Film

Cast: Domenico Monetti, Vincenzo Turca, Annamaria Poma Swank, Stefano Burroni, Antonella Burroni
