The Italian Cultural Institute of Mexico City presents the film festival “Visioni Sarde” (Sardinian Visions).
On 17 March, seven short films will be screened at the Auditorium of the Italian Cultural Institute in Mexico City.
Founded in 2014 as part of the historic Festival Visioni Italiane (Italian Visions Festival) run by the Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna, the festival has grown in size while maintaining its purpose as a place to showcase short films produced in Sardinia and to promote young talent, to whom it offers the opportunity to reach the widest national and international audience.
The short films presented at “Visioni Sarde” address the themes of local history and culture, escape and loss(of oneself and of others), as well as introspective analysis of the human soul, with a nostalgic and progressive, amused and disenchanted touch. All this is set against the backdrop of a Sardinia that is both contemporary and wild.
The titles played at the festival are: “Look Up to the Stars” by Naked Panda, “The Pasquino” by Alessandra Atzori, Milena Tipaldo, “Il volo di Aquilino” by Davide Melis, “L’Ultima Habanera” by Carlo Costantino Licheri, “The Market Man” by Paola Cireddu, “Marina, Marina!” by Sergio Scavio and “Un piano perfetto” by Roberto Achenza.
