Fattore Piemonte: the director is from Turin. Produced by the Metropolis Film Association of Orbassano with the support of the FCTP – Short Film Fund, the short film was shot in Cameri (No).
Synopsis: A man wakes up in a post-apocalyptic world, where few survivors roam the Earth like restless shadows. The man goes along desolate lands, crossed by militias armed to the teeth and directed towards a big city, in search of his family. In his long wanderings he meets an old survivor, busy consuming a frugal meal in an abandoned building. Devoured by hunger, the two share the lean dinner and begin a dialogue with puzzling implications.

Fattore Piemonte: produced by Zenit Arti Audiovisive, a reality from Turin as well as the director and co-founder of
production house. Made with the support of the FCTP – Piemonte Doc Film Fund.
Synopsis: The female accabadora is a woman who practiced an ancient form of euthanasia, a pitiful act against the dying man, with a dry hammer blow. Considered by many as a legendary figure of the Sardinian tradition, in reality it actually existed and played an active role until the 1960s, as the film’s protagonists tell, eyewitnesses to the deeds of the ladies of the good death. Together with them the director crosses the sunny landscapes of Sardinia and plunges into the shadowy areas of an age-old culture still alive in the present, which brings back to eternal and ever-present questions about life and the right to death.
Dolcissime di Francesco Ghiaccio (Italy, 2019, 85’, col)
Performers: Giulia Barbuto Costa Da Cruz, Alice Manfredi, Margherita De Francisco, Giulia Fiorellino, Valeria Solarino, Vinicio Marchioni, Licia Navarrini.

Synopsis: Mariagrazia, Chiara and Letizia are inseparable friends forced to come to terms every day with the hated extra kilos, including teasing mates and giggles in school runners. After yet another humiliation, an unexpected opportunity for redemption comes from the idea of forming a synchronized swimming team and taking part in the school championship. To help them in this impossible undertaking, the popular Alice, “enemy” forced by blackmail to train them in secret and teach them everything she has learned in many years of competitive activity. The trio will eventually become a quartet, day after day, exercise after exercise, smile after smile.
