The Piazza Grande program enables a journey through space and time, with films that revisit moments in past and recent history and those that investigate present day emotional journeys. There is an exceptionally strong American presence, with 4 very different films in which tears and laughter, adrenalin and emotion take over. In addition to the 16 feature films the Piazza Grande program this year also includes 3 short films. These are works of varying lengths that enchanted us, above all for their visionary and poetic qualities: from the Chauvet cave in Le dernier passage, to the journey through a timeless world imagined by Mario Martone, and the latest jewel from Georges Schwizgebel.
