An itinerant and independent cinema festival,
both on the road and borderline

Errant images, displacements and psycho-geographical drifts

“A path is always between two points, but the in-between has taken on all the consistency
and enjoys both an autonomy and a direction of its own” 
G. Deleuze, F. Guattari, 1987

PRINTABLE VERSION IN PDF

On the Road Film Festival, an “on the road” and “cross-border” independent film festival, has reached its fourth edition as an itinerant project presented at a variety of venues across Rome and Lazio, devoted to independent cinema and visual arts, both domestic and international, inspired by journeys and borderlands.

The Festival traces an harmonious path for the International Independent Cinema with previews and unpublished works. We look for films that develop, through linguistic and/or narrative skills, a critical and inventive approach to the subject guidelines of the Festival: a traveling mood with digressions from fixed paths, where the route is what matters, not the destination.

This fourth edition wants to emphasise what a journey leaves us with: traces, memories, encounters. It intends to focus on the necessity of the journey as an experience of contact, of bridging boundaries, of interrelation with another person.

 

▸WHERE & WHEN

Competitive sections screenings will take place from October 23rd to October 29th 2016 at the Detour Cinema in Rome. 
The awards ceremony will be held Saturday, October 29, 2016. 

Side events, out-of-competition special screenings and replicas of the awarded works, will take place from June till December 2016 as itinerant initiatives in Rome and Lazio.

Miglior Film Italiano e Premio Speciale della Giuria come Migliore Opera al Biografilm 2016

Dopo un periodo di irrequieta vita newyorkese e una delusione sentimentale, l’attrice e modella italiana Chantal Ughi scopre nella Muay Thay (arte marziale nota come box thailandese) un mezzo per gestire la propria rabbia e confrontarsi con la violenza subita da bambina. Recatasi in Thailandia per un breve allenamento, ci rimane per cinque anni, addestrandosi e combattendo, modificando il proprio corpo e la propria mente per diventare fino a raggiungere il più alto livello nelle arti marziali. Oggi, dopo un anno di pausa, Chantal è di nuovo sul ring, pronta a combattere i proprio demoni e a riaprire vecchie ferite, mentre tenta di riprendersi il titolo di campionessa mondiale.

After a painful break-up with her boyfriend in NYC, Italian actress and fashion model Chantal Ughi discovered that Muay Thai was the only way to deal with her rage and to confront the violence she suffered as a child. She went to Thailand to train for four weeks, but ended up moving there for five years, training and fighting, modifying both mind and body and reaching the highest level possible in the martial art. Now, after a one-year hiatus, Chantal is back in the ring, ready to fight her demons and to reopen old wounds, as she attempts to become world champion again.

France/China 2016, 50′. French/Cantonese o.v., italian subtitles
Vincitore del Jean Rouche Festival di Parigi

Mia e sua nonna vivono insieme a Parigi ma non hanno mai parlato la stessa lingua. Mia non ha mai imparato il cantonese. La nonna ama il formaggio francese, ma non ha mai imparato la lingua. Il padre di Mia si incarica malvolentieri di fare da interprete. Mia incontra altri immigrati cinesi, gente con lingue e background differenti, e accompagna il padre in Cina in visita del suo villaggio natale. Questo film è un tentativo di venire a patti con la sensazione di essere stati privati della lingua madre della propria famiglia. 

My eyes may have the Chinese slant, but I speak French, not Chinese. My Cantonese grandmother loves French cheese but not the language. We both live in Paris. Our mutual interpreter is my oft-reluctant father. And so I set out to meet other Chinese immigrants – people of different languages and backgrounds. It has allowed to me to give some sense to being deprived of my father’s mother tongue.

Tokyo International Film Festival

In un villaggio di contadini a nord di Tokyo, un uomo vive con la nonna e lavora ogni giorno in una stalla che sembra il relitto di un’altra era. La loro routine si ripete costantemente in armonia con la natura. Soli protagonisti del film sono il regista stesso e la sua nonna di 98 anni. Musiche di Yuji Watanabe.

In a farming village north of Tokyo, a man lives with his aging grandmother and works day after day at a cow shed that looks like a relic from another era. Their routine repeats in tune with nature, portrayed tranquilly and persistently in black and white without words. The film stars director Hirobumi Watanabe and his 98-year-old grandmother, and features Bang Woohyun Bang’s powerful cinematography and the strong presence of Yuji Watanabe’s music.

Italia 2015, 53′, versione italiana
Torino Film Festival 2015

Vito Alfieri Fontana é un ex produttore di mine anti-uomo. In seguito a una profonda crisi esistenziale, l’uomo mette in discussione se stesso, il suo lavoro e i rapporti con la sua famiglia. Una domanda lo assilla: quante vittime avrà causato il lavoro della sua ditta, la Tecnovar? La necessità di cercare una risposta è anche il punto di partenza di un viaggio esistenziale dall’Italia verso gli ex teatri di guerra della Bosnia Erzegovina dove ancora oggi squadre di sminatori sono attive nella bonifica dei terreni. Nel conflitto tra dovere e coscienza si muovono i passi di un uomo in cerca di riscatto, seppur consapevole che il bilancio tra bene e male non potrà mai più essere in attivo.

The engineer Vito Alfieri Fontana is the previous owner of Tecnovar, an Apulian company specialized in landmines production and sale. A deep existential crisis brought the engineer to question himself, his own job and his family. Especially the relationship he had with his father, a charismatic as oppressive presence is his life. One question seems to be haunting him: how many were the victims caused by his work in Tecnovar? The answer is the beginning of an existential trip from Italy to a war-torn Bosnia Erzegovina, where teams of sappers and mine specialists are still working in land remediation.
