Day 5 - Tuesday, June 11

TUESDAY, JUNE 11 Biografilm continues with screenings-events and appointments that go beyond cinema

The fifth day of the festival opens with The Lost Notebook by Ida Marie Gedbjerg Sørensen, scheduled at 6:45 p.m. at Cinema Lumière - Sala Mastroianni. The documentary, which had its international premiere at Biografilm and was in the official selection at Bio to B - Industry Days 2023, tells the story of cinephiles: an anonymous factory worker who meticulously recorded in his diary the 2158 films he saw at the cinema from 1942 to 1994, and a family, divided by secrets and hidden traumas, but united by a passion for action cinema. The director and producer Rikke Tambo Andersen will be present.

At 7 p.m., Camilla Magid's Fighting Demons with Dragons will be screened at Cinema Lumière - Sala Scorsese. The screening, organized in collaboration with The Pomegranate, is prohibited to children under 14 and accessible to TEEN season ticket holders. The film tells the story of Luke, Ask and Josefine, outsiders who finally feel accepted at Østerskov Efterskole in Hobro, Denmark's only role-playing school. Wearing costumes and wielding swords, the protagonists will figure out who they are.

Not only cinema at Biografilm. This year's the festival will host, at 8:30 p.m. at the BIOGRAFILM HERA THEATRE | Pop Up Cinema Arlecchino, the event Avrei questa idea, Format by Giffoni Innovation Hub and Tamago Factory led by Edoardo Ferrario and Valerio Lundini, curated by Luigi Sales, Liù Cappella and Cecilia Attanasio, with direction by Tahir Hussain, in collaboration with Bio to B - Industry Days. The audience will watch a best of previous episodes of the vodcast and a live recording of the sixth and final episode. In each episode, four talents under 30 have the opportunity to present their film or serial idea, with the hope of finding a producer ready to invest in them. Tickets for the event can be purchased online through biografilm.it at the special price of €10. All subscribers, except TEENs, will receive an email so they can book for free.

Forty years after the death of Enrico Berlinguer, there will be a world premiere screening at 9 p.m. at BIOGRAFILM HERA THEATRE | Pop Up Cinema Jolly 4K, Prima della fine. Gli ultimi giorni di Enrico Berlinguer by Samuele Rossi. The documentary, in official selection at Bio to B - Industry Days 2022, focuses on the last days of his life and the most impressive political funeral in the history of the Republic. The film recounts in a novel way a moment of passage and an end: of a beloved politician, of an entire party, of an idea of a country, perhaps the end of an era. The director and producers Giuseppe Cassaro, Cosetta Lagani and Emanuele Nespeca will be present.

At 9:15 p.m., at Cinema Lumière - Sala Mastroianni, it will be the turn of Agent of Happiness by Arun Bhattarai and Dorottya Zurbó. The screening, organized in collaboration with Amici Del Bhutan, is closed to children under 14 and accessible to TEEN season ticket holders. The filmmakers seek to answer the question “How can happiness be measured?” by following the story of Amber, one of Bhutan's agents who travels from door to door to meet people and measure how happy they are. Bhutan has in fact invented Gross National Happiness. Together with Amber, we discover the fragility and beauty of our happiness. Director Dorottya Zurbó will be present.

Directors Tito Puglielli and Marta Basso will be present at 9:30 p.m. at Cinema Lumière - Sala Scorsese, to present the world premiere of their first film Che ore sono. In the still time of a psychiatric community in Palermo, everyone is waiting for something so as not to disappear. We meet Giuseppe, who does not want to grow old and spends his days immersed in the rock of his headphones. Then there is Ursula, who has found love but, between illness and medication, is not easy to take care of. And Bianca, a communist who misses the world and feels caged.

The fifth day of Biografilm comes to a close with François-Xavier Drouet's L'Évangile de la révolution, screened at 9:30 p.m. in the open-air location of the Chiostro del Complesso di Santa Cristina “della Fondazza”. The French documentary traces the revolutionary spirit that swept through Latin America in the 20th century, due to the participation of millions of Christians, engaged in political struggles in the name of their faith. The film explores the experiences of men and women who believed that revolution was the coming of God's Kingdom on earth rather than in heaven.
