Sogni al campo [It.Fr., 2020, 9 min] by Mara Cerri and Magda Guidi (Short film in competition)
A boy searches for his cat along a river but cannot find it. On the verge of death, the animal moved away from everything to find the necessary intimacy. The child arrives at the gates of time, a place where the dead disappear and the living let them go. The child is afraid, he enters a forest of symbols and memories. Meanwhile he grows up. His childhood illusions dissolve until they blend with the landscape.
Da Sola [It. 2019, 4 min] by Christoph Brehme
Sometimes we want to defend ourselves, we want to show that we are capable, we want to prove it to ourselves and to others. But asking for help is also good and is not necessarily a sign of weakness: together it is easier, the result is sometimes better and above all there is much more time to play and have fun.
