Giuseppina Pasqualino di Marineo, better known as Pippa Bacca, was a 34 years old Italian artist. She crossed 11 countries involved in wars, hitchhiking with another Milanese artist, Silvia Moro, both wearing a wedding dress. This was a performance for peace, trust and hoping to prove that if you rely on others, you’ll receive good things only. After travelling many roads, the two artists decided to split for a while in Istanbul, planning to meet again in Byblos. Pippa left then, alone, and nobody heard from her again.
An eye-opening and shattering analysis of the behavior, psyche, condition, and stability of Donald J. Trump. Italian voiceover.
Chi era Emilio Vedova? Uno degli artisti più significativi del Novecento, vincitore del Gran premio della pittura e del Leone d'oro nel'97 alla Biennale d'arte di Venezia, città dove è nato e dalla quale non si è mai staccato; un uomo "grande ed esplosivo" che ha vissuto "in un certo modo nel suo tempo"; un partigiano che ha combattuto nella Resistenza; un attivista impegnato socialmente e politicamente sempre "dalla parte della trasgressione", antifascista ma anche dissidente rispetto al partito comunista di cui era stato parte, perché "un artista è un'antenna" delle frequenze che capta intorno a sé. La straordinaria vicenda umana e artistica del grande pittore veneziano attraverso le pagine dei suoi diari, rari materiali d’archivio e preziosi contributi di artisti, curatori, collaboratori e amici. Il racconto è scandito dai passaggi fondamentali della storia politica, sociale e dell’arte del ventesimo secolo e, sullo sfondo di una Venezia quasi eterea, restituisce, grazie all’appassionata interpretazione di Toni Servillo e al dialogo quasi personale e diretto con Vedova, la profonda personalità e il tratto potente di uno degli artisti più significativi del novecento.
Marx and Engels meet cute in this intense, fervent film about the early development of communism from I Am Not Your Negro director Raoul Peck. It's a sinewy and intensely focused, uncompromisingly cerebral period drama, co-written with Pascal Bonitzer, about the birth of communism in the mid-19th century. It gives you a real sense of what radical politics was about: talk. There is talk, talk and more talk. It should be dull, but it isn’t. Somehow the spectacle of fiercely angry people talking about ideas becomes absorbing and even gripping.

"Perché tanto livore bianco? Forse l’ossessione per una sorta di “demone della purezza” rivela l’oscurità che si agita nell’animo dei bianchi? Sono le domande inquietanti che vengono fuori vedendo il documentario capolavoro I am not your negro di Raoul Peck, basato su Remember this house, un manoscritto incompleto dello scrittore afroamericano James Baldwin. Un film che spinge a rovesciare i poli opposti, il bianco e il nero, con tutte le conseguenze del caso. Un documentario che merita di essere visto dal maggior numero possibile di spettatori, di essere proiettato e discusso nelle scuole. I am not your negro pervade l’animo nel profondo e finora è il film più bello dell'anno..." Francesco Boille - Internazionale

Detour is a non-profit organisation based on the voluntary work of its members and everything that comes in is immediately reinvested. For more than 20 years we have been going along on just our own strength, without ever chasing or receiving support from either private or public institutions for the daily running of our activities, always looking only at the quality of our programme of activities and establishing a relationship of trust and empathy with our members. Well, we have to tell you truthfully: this time we are running the risk of not being able to continue and soon we will be at the point of no return Your contribution has been and will be crucial to try to resist and will help to defend one of the last bastions of independent cinematography in our city. The friendship, esteem, and generous support you have shown us so far have been simply extraordinary! We will publish a collection of some of the most touching messages that accompanied your donations. Thanks to your contributions, we have reached the first milestone and this will allow us to pay essential rents and utilities related to the prolonged period of interruption of the activity, avoiding the imminent risk of being buried under the weight of the accumulated debts. However, the blanket of uncertainty lowered on future scenarios, the impossibility of setting aside a quota for summer fees, the awareness that a "phase 2" will involve us, among the last in order of time, by a partial and quota-authorisation reopening, consequent to the adoption of burdensome and complex sanitation measures, requires us to keep our guard high. We are asking you to choose one of the proposed options set out in our special crowdfunding campaign.
