Voices of Today

Sun Nov 27, 6:30pm (Como Cinema 1)

The world of contemporary Italian animation is as diverse, creative and energetic as any in the world. This program showcases a fascinating sample of some of the most captivating animators working in Italian animation today.

Andrea Pierri works primarily within the design and advertising industries and is renowned for his capacity to ‘blend’ animation and live-action footage to generate imagery that brings alternative perspectives to whatever subject he tackles.

Igor Imhoff is one of the world’s most restless experimental animators. He uses every tool in the modern animator’s production suite to create digital moving image artwork that ranges from highly stylised music videos to films destined to be projected onto massive buildings.

Nico Bonomolo is one of Italy’s best known independent animators whose films pursue more personal and contemplative stories. We are especially pleased to be screening his latest film, “Maestrale” which was recently awarded Best Short Film at the David di Donatello Awards, Italy’s most prestigious film awards.

And the program rounds out with two ‘hot-off-the-press’ graduate films from Italy’s premier animation school, shining a bright light on the next generation of Italian animation.

Andrea Pierri and Igor Imhoff will travel from Italy to introduce and discuss their work in what promises to be a highlight screening.
