The light that we have to keep on

The films follow one after the other and the “world” of the 15th Camera Zizanio unfolds: The Syrian refugee in Germany who tries to put down roots, the African immigrant in Spain who tries to cross the fence, the children from Italy who hate borders…
Borders, the acceptance of something different, the modern technology that estranges people, poverty, school violence, the dream for something beautiful… More than any other time, the hot issues of the world around us feed the subject matter of the films.
Of that world that is in turmoil, in transition, in a manner that is extremely painful most of the times.
Camera Zizanio has been and still is the meeting point of the issues of young people with creativity. Not as a simple, random crossroad but as the point where the carbon rods of the old movie projector meet. Each one carrying opposite electrical charges, they barely just touch and as if they explode, they create the voltaic arc. A brilliant light, necessary for the projection onto the large screen.
This is the light that we have to keep on, under any circumstances.
At any cost!
Artistic Director of Camera Zizanio
