*WOMEN (NICO)

*Women (Nico), starting from the figure of the legendary singer, opens up a complex and topical discourse, immediately taking on universal connotations and, at the same time, paying homage to an artist who shaped the history of music (and pop culture) of the last century.

THE BODY IS SO RESILIENT

In The Body is so resilient, Moana Vonstadl has opted for a minimalist yet incredibly effective mise-en-scène. The figure of Eva has sharp teeth and eyes that yearn for something undefined. She needs to feed herself, to nourish her self, to free herself from the grey world in which she has been imprisoned for a long, long time. At the festival Sotto le Stelle dell’Austria 2023.

UNDER THE ENDLESS SKY

Under the endless Sky is a little poetic short film that in its apparent simplicity has found the right way to convey the idea of what the young director’s world was like. A few essential blue strokes represent each time a new image. A bright, proud yellow, meanwhile, serves as a background. The colours of the Ukrainian flag thus tell us an extremely intimate and personal story. At the festival Sotto le Stelle dell’Austria 2023.

SERVIAM – I WILL SERVE

Serviam – I will serve immediately strikes us with its shots (all shot strictly with a fixed camera) of the schoolyard, but also of the interiors, so cold and perfectly tidy that they immediately convey a certain unease. A little girl’s voice recites a prayer. In the boarding school, life seems to proceed quietly and without any particularly noteworthy events. The feeling that, however, something terrible is about to happen accompanies us from beginning to end. At the festival Sotto le Stelle dell’Austria 2023.

FRIDA UND SISI PARTNER IN CRIME

With an animation that is indeed essential and minimalist, but also extremely colourful and rich in detail, Frida und Sisi Partner in Crime by Regine Kafaeder is an extremely free, living and pulsating work in its short but effective running time. At the festival Sotto le Stelle dell’Austria 2023.
