RICORDI?
2018, Le Pacte, 106 min, Italy/France, Dir: Valerio Mieli

Director Valerio Mieli (TEN WINTERS) returns with this sophomore feature about a pair of lovers (Luca Marinelli and Linda Caridi) who experience universal feelings ranging from joy to despair as their relationship evolves over the course of several years. Blending past and present and alternating between the two perspectives, Mieli delivers a contemplative portrait of the nature of memory and its ever-complicated relationship to fleeting emotions. A poetic collage reminiscent of Terrence Malick’s work, RICORDI? will touch anyone who has gone through the emotional turmoil of being in love. Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Venice Film Festival 2018 and the Best Cinematography Award at the 2019 Italian Golden Globes. “An ambitious tour-de-force about love, time and memory.” - Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter.


SLAM
SLAM: TUTTO PER UNA RAGAZZA
2016, Netflix, 100 min, Italy, Dir: Andrea Molaioli

Based on the successful novel by Nick Hornby, SLAM is filled with the often exciting, often frightening, twists and turns of growing up. Sixteen-year-old Samuele (Ludovico Tersigni) spends his days skateboarding with his friends, doing jumps and tricks, and taking the odd spill; he also nurtures a completely imaginary friendship with his hero, Tony Hawk, the best skater of all time. He would love to attend a university, to travel, and perhaps move to California and become a professional skater. But more than anything, Samuele would love to be the first in his family not to fall into the trap of having a baby at 16, which happened to both his mother and his grandmother.
