Gioja 22 - Milan Design Film Festival at ACMI



Gioja 22 - Milan Design Film Festival at ACMI

ACMI and the IIC Melbourne present Gioja 22 (2020) by Stefano De Felici following the screening of "The Importance of an Architect" (2021) by Giorgio Ferrero and Federico Biasin that was released in world premiere as the opening night film of the Milano Design Film Festival in Milan last October (2021).

The subject of this evocative short film, and deep in its meaning, is the Milanese district of Melchiorre Gioia, which has become the zone of skyscrapers and more, certainly very different today than a few years ago. A new skyscraper stands out among massive mirrored buildings and vertical woods, symbols of Milan’s new skyline. Images and music combine to tell the story of an extreme and spectacular protest in which the protagonist is Carlo, a 30-year-old man who climbs up on a crane, scaling and bravely challenging the concrete and glass giants of world finance. His act of civil disobedience at a height of 150 metres forces passers-by to look up for a few hours and reflect on the meaning of the phrase that can be read in the blue sky: “Stay human.”
