The metropolitan area of Naples is one of the most densely populated on the planet and lies between Vesuvius and Campi Flegrei, two of the most dangerous active volcanoes in the world. Over a million people live in the so-called red zone, ready to be evacuated at the first sign of an eruption. Perhaps. The film relates the stories of those who live there on this "time bomb" and who, despite the danger, are linked to this land of fire, to the traditions and superstitions on the black mountain, Vesuvius, which overlooks the city, as if was the true and only master.

A childless couple in rural Iceland make an alarming discovery one day in their sheep barn. They soon face the consequences of defying the will of nature, in this dark and atmospheric folktale, the striking debut feature from director Valdimar Jóhannsson. Darkly imaginative and brought to life by a pair of striking central performances, Lamb shears expectations with its singularly wooly chills, blending humor, dread, and sorrow into one picture, and providing commentary on the human journey. It's a unique film experience that is equal parts peculiar and absorbing.

Fatiha, Malika, Anissa and Sarah don't seem to have much in common except for their specific relation to a shrill, loud cry, 'the youyou'. But their stories about desire, migration, revolt and be/longing resonate all the more with mutual feelings as the film unfolds towards a collective and poetic statement about female solidarity. The youyou is the French colonial name for the high pitched trill that women in Northern Africa and the Middle Eeast launch as an expression of joy or other intense emotions.
A computer screen, images from the four corners of the world. We cross borders in one click while another trip’s story reach us in fragments, through text messages, chats, phone conversations, and an immigration office’s questionnaire.

One day I read the story of an aboriginal legend according to which, each ancestor leaves behind him a sinuous path full of songs and spirit-children. When a person walks along the trail of his ancestor, it brings back the songs and stories of the earth. And if a child is born from the journey, he becomes the child of these songs. I went to Tunisia and Algeria to collect songs and popular stories of the Revolution of Independence, on the trail of a family memory and the vinyl record of the Italian anarchist group Cantacronache "Canti della Rivoluzione algerina" (“Songs of the Algerian Revolution”).

Four circus families, abandoned by the institutions, find themselves suspended in the hope that the pandemic will disappear as in a magic show.
