Nobody is innocent, by Toni D'angelo, with Salvatore Esposito, the extraordinary participation of Riccardo Zinna and the friendly participation of Loredana Simioli and Gaetano Di Vaio.
The director Toni D'angelo presents the screening.
We are now harassed by black news reports on Naples and Scampia.
The media give us a one-way image, if you enter Scampia you risk your life.
You go in and you don't know if you get out alive. Successful TV series, novels,
social policy programs, everyone talks about it.
Dante's hell is nothing in comparison.
Shootings, assassinations, drug dealing. The protagonist of this short film lives on these clichés that he learns from radio and TV. He has to go to Naples to sign a contract for a contract, a turning point for his career. But one piece of news will make this trip a nightmare: the meeting place is in a warehouse located in Scampia. The navigator accompanies our hero in the various circles of the imaginary hell of this man's mind. Every movement or noise, but even a simple gesture of courtesy, is perceived by him as threatening. Everyone follows him, he's a stranger ... the bad guys are all there ... a journey into the disaster of clichés all told from the distorted and acid point of view of our protagonist.
Being Gigione, by Valerio Vestoso.
The projection is presented by the protagonist Luigi Ciaravola, aka Gigione.
Luigi Ciaravola, aka Gigione, dominates the stages of the festivals
and Italian street parties,
bringing with it the universe of songs that sway between the sacred and the profane,
between double meaning and devotion, between good and good.
At his feet, blinded by the psychedelic lights
and from the mirage of a petty happiness,
the second-hand people, perpetually shunned by the national limelight,
because I confess to the greatest sin of this century.
SMCV The best now, a Docu-Film conceived and produced by Gianluca Seghizzi, screenplay by Giuseppe Di Monaco, directed by Pino D'Ambrosio, with Luigi Cinone. Music by Venovan and Raffaele Salemme.
It is the story of a Sammaritan
who suddenly returns to his hometown
after seeing something magical on TV the night before.
We will be back early in the morning, at the best now
and will travel a short journey that will take him back in time ...
Following the screening of some of the most deserving short films proposed for the selections of the INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM COMPETITION - MITREOFILMFESTIVAL 2018 and which did not make it to the final.

SCENE 6. 11.00 am. GOLD CUP BAR. THE BOOK AND THE AUTHOR.
The writer and screenwriter Roberto Moliterni presents his book The cardboard house.
"We kissed other times, on the internet, during that perpetual and imaginary sunset."
This is a love story of today, knowledge via the internet on social networks, winks,
then pushed phrases, coexistence,
Ikea furniture, catalogs, common platitudes, and the end of love,
because today a relationship doesn't last anymore
of compressed chipboard furniture.
Told with us, as if it were anyone's story,
because love too is perhaps a product intended for consumption; cruel affair
and almost sociological,
where we find our impressive and anonymous world.

Adam and Eve still have a chance.

and generate a new breed of human beings
Nine sequence shots in super 8 color

and we made him do it all again,
all over again.
