WORLD ‘Mindless Crowd’ is a collage of drone footage combined with a voiceover from the 1960s. The short film examines the different patterns and various formations which human civilisation has shaped on the surface of planet earth. It therefore uses only one single perspective, the top view. A 4-minute film by German (from Nürnberg) director Jacco Kliesch. Be curious and watch it!

BLACKBURN Through memories and reflections, the stories associated with three abandoned buildings and their modern counterparts are used to look at what unites and divides the people of this industrial northern town of England. From Brexit to race, industry to ageing, sometimes funny, sometimes affecting, always engaging. A 15-minute documentary commissioned by the Arts Council and directed by award winning London based director Liam Saint-Pierre (originally from Blackburn).

NEW YORK A look at the powerful connection between a pair of outdoor ping pong tables, in the heart of New York City, and the unlikely group of people they’ve brought together, from homeless people to investment bankers to gangbangers. Rain or shine, they’ll be there. At “The Tables”. A beautiful, very beautiful, 15-minute documentary by Jon Bunning, filmmaker and art director based in Brooklyn, NY. Watch the short film here!

CANADA We love “Seeties” but we also love Nature and we want to show you this timelapse short film made into the Canadian wild and filmed by Florian Nick: “By making this project, I want to raise awareness of our wonderful planet Earth which we have the privilege to be part of. That’s why we have to take responsibility for it – for the place where we are alive.”

PRATO “In Val di Bisenzio c’è un’astronave. L’ha usata Luca per andare su Marte e salvare la sua ragazza. Peccato che la sua ragazza-androide, una volta tornata in vita, gli abbia sparato in faccia. Sono Luca e Patrizio del collettivo John Snellinberg a mostrarmela mentre dorme in un garage sotto una coperta, in attesa del prossimo volo interplanetario.” Un’altra storia (vera) di Chiara Grondana, un altro viaggio per i confini della città. #CCTravellers2016

In attesa di vedere il mediometraggio finale realizzato dai due registi, Mainetti e Segre, vi mostriamo il nostro corto! GRAZIE di cuore a tutte le persone, citate in apertura e nei titoli di coda, che hanno collaborato a questo cortometraggio – che, secondo noi, è bellissimo ma, ovviamente, siamo di parte. Adesso tocca a voi giudicare… quindi BUONA VISIONE! 🙂
