Short Film Day -Southern Hemisphere



Short Film Day -Southern Hemisphere

Since 2010, the shortest day of the year, December 21st for the Northern hemisphere and June 21st for the Southern one, was consecrated as International Short Film Day. The program of short films produced by the Centro Nazionale del Cortometraggio (CNC) - Italian Short Film Centre, is an overview which aims to give visibility to the most recent Italian production. As usual the IIC Melbourne is happy to present this selection of  "Corti" to its audience.


The movies:

Il nostro tempo, Veronica Spedicati – 2019 – 16’

Roberta is a nine-year-old girl who wants to enjoy the last days of summer on the beach playing with her friends, while her father Donato forces her to stay at home to help with household chores. The distance between the two seems unbridgeable, but the discovery that Donato is much more fragile than it seems will lead them to restore value to their time together.

Lunedì, Massimo Fallai – 2018 – 17’

Florence. During the summer fashion week two electricians, a man and a boy, are busy setting up the lighting system for the event of a famous claw. From morning until evening they cross the city in their van from one end to the other.
It will be an opportunity for the due to confront one last time before the beginning of the following week marks the beginning of a new path for both.

Mezze stagioni, Bruno Ugioli e Riccardo Menicatti – 2020 – 10’

A young couple gets ready for a ceremony. Emilia is not dressed yet and Pietro is struggling with his tie and also very annoyed about a speech he has to give. While they talk around their house, time travels back and forth revealing different phases of their life.

Passaggi, Beppe Leonetti – 2019 – 14’

An undertow of memory drag a father and a son. Two childhoods lived in the same place, in two different eras, very distant from each other. Two worlds united by long journeys in time and space, in an attempt to dispel the fog in which the shadows stir.

14, Aldo Surricchio – 2018 – 14’

A boy with a seemingly normal life and an antiquated job, following a big disappointment in love and various ups and downs, falls in love with a girl he sees in some photos he was developing. He will end up being pleasantly surprised.

Jiaozi, Luca Canale Brucculeri – 2020 – 8′

In an old Taiwanese cinema now in disuse, they are found the reels of a film never shown before: “Jiaozi” narrates the story of female revenge dictated by the rules of time, in which calm and patience are the only way to survive a prolonged struggle for years.
