Riccardo Giacconi - "Lo Scherzo"

“Lo scherzo” is a portrait of the singer-songwriter Alberto Camerini, a well-known Italian pop interpreter at the beginning of the 1980s. Through a series of conversations and an editing of unpublished archive materials, Giacconi evokes some passages of Camerini’s career, exploring the personal and political roots of a style that crosses pop, punk, folk and electronic. It is also inspired on the one hand by the Art Comedy and the figure of Giambattista Tiepolo, and on the other by technological innovations and the beginnings of computer science.

Following the theme of the 2015 call for entries – inspired by the year dedicated to light – Luca Trevisani directed a film honouring the modernist architecture of Villa Girasole, in the province of Verona, and its special connection with the sun. From here, Trevisani presents a deep research on the human condition and the dialogic and specular relation between light and time, through the collaboration with the choreographer Michele di Stefano, winner of the Silver Lion at Venice Dance Biennale in 2014.
“Il Cerchio” – produced by Careof and Sky in collaboration with 999 Films and Filmmaster – will be premiered on Sky Arte HD coming soon on channels 120 and 400 on Sky.
