Eccomi … Eccoti (Here I am … Here you are)

Raed Rafei


Lebanon, 68min
Eccomi … Eccoti unfolds as a virtual road trip navigating between Italy and Lebanon. Conditioned to live in a long-distance relationship with his partner because of strict European visa regulations, the director patches together the moments shared together in an attempt to create a possible day-to-day reality for their couple. With a lyrical, ambient soundscape set atop a dreamy, atmospheric visual style that oscillates between still photography and moving images, the film explores what it means to be gay in contemporary Beirut and the aches of psychic pain that blocks one from reaching a sense of “complete-ness” with one’s self. Does such in-completeness have to do, in particular, with being gay? Or is it related to a grander malaise endemic to the human condition?

In the building elevator, she meets cute ERICA, the charming butch who just moved in next door. Whenever Mona is around Erica, things have a way of flying around on their own. Mona has the power to move things with her mind and she can't always control it. But Mona's instant chemistry with Erica awakens something dormant in her and she can finally stop hiding. She's in love. Of course, Ma notices and she's not going to let her daughter go easily. When Ma hounds and bullies Mona through their house, the long simmering fight exploding between them is ugly. Erica intervenes, but nothing can prepare her for learning what happens when Mona loves you...

Oggi Sono Passato e Tu Non C’eri

Canecapovolto, Elisa Abela


Italy / 45'
Rock and Roll, noise, collages su carta e progetti oscuri, Jung, l’uomo e la massa, sogno e veglia, costruzione e distruzione, palazzi e condominio. Già all’inizio di questo documentario/film saggio era chiaro che il metodo giusto per sapere non era fare ordine nelle visioni di Elisa Abela, artista visuale e musicista, ma di favorirne ed accelerarne il disordine. Oggi sono passato e tu non c’eri è un viaggio leggero ed ignoto, divertente ed a tratti enigmatico verso il nulla, risultato di un metodo compositivo spesso anti-cinematografico, inventato in corsa e condiviso con una piccola comunità di anime che hanno preso parte al racconto, generandolo a loro volta. Ancora una volta “Nulla è Vero. Tutto è Permesso”.

In this era of globalized fitness culture through the use of social media, "looking healthy" matters much more than actually being healthy. Using endurance as the motivation for the performance, the video creates a new perception of HIV+ people as strong and resilient. Research references include the Atlas myth, the god of endurance that holds the earth and the skies over his shoulders, as well as the never ending climb of the Sisyphus myth.

Karoly Makk and Janos Xantus, 1982) and more than a dozen other films, texts and tracks to create a passionate, suspicious tapestry of hauntings, dreams, fragments and provocations.
