Pool edge
Fiction short film, duration: 11 minutes
It is a scorching summer. An indistinct mass of bodies lolls on the grassy dunes of Bolzano's public swimmingpool, everything resonates as if in a big bubble. A seven-year-old girl is playing by the pool with her father, and not far away her mother is sunbathing. Surprisingly, the father grabs her ankle, lifting her up like a fishing trophy. The little girl upside down stirs, cries and plummets into the water. She resurfaces, fumbling, coughing, her eyes burning with chlorine and anger. She gets out of the tub, heads towards her father ready to take her revenge. In a few moments, the joyous quietness of the pool is subverted and a chaos suspended between terror and disbelief silences the shouting..

Bar Mario
2016, documentary, 62 minutes, Italian | trailer | Buy or rent
For over 70 years, on the border between Italy and Austria, a café built in the shape of a ship has been moored in the snow-capped Dolomites. The captain, Marina, spends the whole day watching over her 33-year-old son, and serving the customers at the same time. The café is also the living room of their home, just a door separating the bar from the rest of the house. The events intertwine and become a choral story from which a tragicomic portrait emerges; a comedy of real life in which the protagonists play the role that life has assigned to them.
