La Rivoluzione Siamo Noi

Ilaria Freccia, Italy, 2020, 83 min., Italian with English subtitles

Opening the annual series, Magazzino will present Ilaria Freccia’s 2020 film, documenting the period between 1967 and 1977, when Italian art experienced a moment of glory on the international art scene as the center of the avant garde. Through curated footage and interviews with prominent cultural figures of the time, the film documents and analyzes significant events that mark the transition of art away from its traditional institutional framework and movement towards permeating the outside world as it took to the streets.

Nuovo Cinema Paradiso

Giuseppe Tornatore, Italy, 1988, 124 min., Italian with English subtitles

Set just after the end of World War II in a small Sicilian village, Nuovo Cinema Paradiso tells the story of a young boy, Salvatore, who becomes mesmerized by the operations at a local movie house. Frequenting the establishment in all of his spare time, he befriends the projectionist, Alfredo, who teaches him all he knows, sparking in him a passion for film and urging him to pursue his own career. Told as a flashback, the narrative comments on the nature of film as an evolving medium and through powerful symbolism, illuminates the immortal quality to this art form.

Sulle Tracce di Maria Lai 

Maddalena Bregani, Italy, 2020, 56 min., Italian with English subtitles

Directed by Maddalena Bregani, the film reconstructs the path and legacy of Maria Lai, a unique artist originally from Sardinia. The film traces her artistic practice by decade, from the turning point in the 1960s with her sewn canvas, breads, to collective action carried out with citizens of Ulassai in 1981. Reconstructed with care and tactile and optical sensuality, the film includes interview with friends, critics, fellow artists, and collaborators to place Lai within the currents of the 20th century.
