Days of harvest with cinematography by Alessio Valori@ Raindance Film Festival in London, October 2nd, 4pm.
Shot in the beautiful Italian countryside, the cinematography makes full use of the wonderful vineyards and farmhouse on which this film is set.There is a lingering patience to many of the shots, a desire to let the scene play out to its fullest, that really enhances the actors nuanced performances.The small cast does a impressive job of presenting a family bound together through time and familiarity, despite their differences in personality.Special mention must be given to Marco D’Agostin whose unselfconscious performance as Elia grounds the film. Written and directed by the young Marco Righi this is a deeply intimate look at growing up, both for the protagonist and for the country whose two competing political ideals are so well represented by his parents.

Boulevard d’Ypres/Ieperlaan by Sarah Vanagt @ Kunstfestivaldesarts with premiere at Leger des Heils / Armée du Salut 11/05 – 21:30 and screenings @   Kaaistudio 14/05, 16/05, 23/05, 24/05 – 18:00. NL / FR / EN > NL / FR.
Sarah Vanagt has chosen her own street, the Boulevard d’Ypres/Ieperlaan, as both the setting and theme of her latest film. Urban development and gentrification are driving out the Mediterranean stores which gave the street its unique charm. So in order to memorialize her street, Vanagt went out to meet shop owners, forklift drivers and anyone else she came across, assembling their stories to create a fairy tale. Her approach is borrowed from Italian historian Carlo Ginzburg, one of the initiators of “microhistory”. Boulevard d’Ypres/Ieperlaan gives us an audiovisual chronicle of a changing street: this experimental documentary gives voice to the colourful mix of inhabitants whose stories come together in the heart of Europe.
