OTRFF8 8 Special Event. “Osannaples”, has obtained the acclaimation of public and critics everywhere, for the originality of the story and the search of new languages. M. Deborah Farina, between the main directors of Italian independent cinema, returns to Detour to tell the story of the Neapolitan musical revolution, starting from the end of the Sixties, which saw the Osanna’s progressive-rock music (authors of cult records including “L’uomo”, “Palepoli”, “Milano calibro 9” with Luis Bacalov), as the main avant-garde, on whose artistic and human story the doc is based. 
The On the Road Film Festival is an independent festival of international significance which follows an original path inspired by travel, geographical wandering, making a track across wild lands and city landscapes. The cue for this the eighth season is the principal based on the ‘Path of Least Resistance’, a concept based on and borrowed from the second law of thermodynamics by which, water, for example, in its never-ending journey, always searches for the way which poses the least possible resistance. A principle which grows into the Toaist philosophy of Wu wei, the non-action or better the understanding of when to act and when not to do so, when there is a prospect of harmony, equilibrium, economy and concentration of the forces. A sober reminder to never put out the flame of Reason, while we turn to breathe in the warring fetid breathe at the heart of Europe.
Presentazione del libro La paralisi dell’ONU, il coagularsi del blocco dei BRICS, la metamorfosi della politica estera dell’Unione Europea, la propagazione dello Stato Islamico in Africa, l’emergenza migratoria nel Mediterraneo, la proiezione meridionale di Turchia e Russia: tutte queste dinamiche sono strettamente connesse alla crisi che si protrae in Libia dal 2011. Nel frattempo il paese è diventato un laboratorio per la sperimentazione – spesso fallimentare – di diverse modalità di intervento internazionale e crisis management: la hybris liberale dell’egemonia occidentale si è ridimensionata alle esigenze dell’approccio light americano e del ritiro dal quadrante mediorientale; la stabilizzazione del vicinato dell’Unione Europea si è concentrata sulla lotta al terrorismo e alla migrazione irregolare, a scapito della riforma di un settore della sicurezza corrotto da interessi criminali e spinte centrifughe; e la competizione geopolitica nell’odierno contesto multipolare ha approfondito le faglie della politica libica, proiettandole su scala internazionale. Con lucidità e rigore, il libro indaga le rifrazioni interne e internazionali di una crisi che rappresenta non solo una sfida all’ordine costituito, ma anche, potenzialmente, una sfida costituente.

The front line told through the lens of thirteen photojournalists, who with their shots showed the hell, the horrors, the suffering and the indelible scars of war. The voices, photographs and memories of men and women become the stages of a physical and emotional journey between past and present. Because the front line is not only where bombs are shot and dropped, but everywhere you "fight" daily for survival. Original Italian version with English subtitles.

On the Road Film Festival è un festival indipendente di rilevanza internazionale che traccia un percorso inedito di cinema ispirato al viaggio, alle geografie erranti, agli attraversamenti di terre selvagge e agli spaesamenti metropolitani.  Tutte le proiezioni, in lingua originale con sottotitoli in italiano, si svolgono al Cinema Detour di Roma  nei fine settimana dal 26 marzo al 10 aprile 2022. In concorso 9 lungometraggi e 9 cortometraggi selezionati tra oltre 200 proposte provenienti da 40 paesi nel mondo. Due Giurie composte da personalità della cultura indipendente cinematografica, artistica e letteraria a larga rappresentanza femminile, e il voto del pubblico in sala, assegneranno premi in denaro e menzioni speciali. La cartografia ideale di questa ottava stagione sembra orientarci sulla via della “minor resistenza” o “resistenza pacifica”, concetto preso a prestito dalla seconda legge della termodinamica in base al quale, per esempio, l'acqua, nel suo viaggio incessante, ricerca sempre il cammino che opponga la minore reazione possibile. Un principio che si incarna nell’equivalente filosofico taoista del Wu Wei, la non-azione o meglio la consapevolezza del quando agire e del quando non agire, in una prospettiva di armonia, equilibrio, economia e concentrazione delle forze. Una traccia sotterranea che è anche un invito a non allentare mai l'allenamento della Ragione e del pensiero critico, proprio mentre tornano a soffiare fetidi aliti guerreschi fino nel cuore d’Europa.

On a gray, foggy morning outside a large Polish city, Zhenia (Alec Utgoff), a masseur from the East, enters the lives of the wealthy residents of a gated community. Using hypnotic, almost magical techniques to get a residence permit, he starts working. The well-to-do residents in their cookie-cutter homes seemingly have it all, but they all suffer from an inner sadness, some unexplained longing. The attractive and mysterious newcomer's hands heal, and Zhenia's eyes seem to penetrate their souls. To them, his Russian accent sounds like a song from the past, a memory of their seemingly safer childhoods. The latest from writer/director Malgorzata Szumowska (Elles, In the Name of) and her longtime collaborator Michal Englert is an unclassifiable meditation on class, immigration, and global warming with touches of magical realism and moments of sober beauty and subtle humor.

In arrivo, un poker di raffinate commedie d’autore dai quattro angoli dell’Europa per tenere alto il morale e premiare la dedizione delle nostre truppe cinefile. Ma poiché siamo pur sempre al Detour, dove abbiamo un debole per i buoni vecchi generi del cinema, non potrà sfuggirvi che il tono variopinto di ciascuna commedia è modulato con la sua particolare gradazione di dark-noir. L’asso nella manica di questa settimana, con protagonista un’abitualmente stupefacente Isabelle Huppert, è la crimedy francese MAMA WEED, che abbiamo scelto di promuovere con il suo titolo internazionale, a nostro giudizio più evocativo della sostanza della storia (in italiano è “La Padrina”, mentre il titolo originale francese è “La Daronne”).

Kiyokazu Kurihara and Satoko are a married couple. They do not have children. They learn about plenary adoption and adopt a baby son. 6 years later, the couple live happily with their son Asato. They receive a phone call from a woman, who introduces herself as Hikari Katakura. She is Asato's birth mother... There are few films that explore motherhood in such a serious, solid, beautiful way, far from judgements. Kawase takes the film in surprising directions, but her narrative and her naturalistic, engrossing style never loses emotional focus. The story may be a familiar one, but this Cannes-honored director lets it unfold with rare tenderness and mystery.
