3 Italian Films
The theme for Earth Day 2021 is Restore Our Earth. Our three movies are about the always unstable balance between nature, science, and humanity, with the exploitation of our natural resources in the background. Together we can work to restore our earth.

Il pianeta in mare (A Planet in the Sea) by Andrea Segre (93')
Entering the industrial world of Marghera, the mechanical heart of the Venice Lagoon which has not stopped beating for a hundred years: it’s a world hanging in the balance between an awkward past and an uncertain future, where the workforce is made up of over sixty different nationalities. Wandering into and marveling at places hardly ever explored before, like the steel bellies of great ships under construction, the shadows of the abandoned bastions of the Petrolchimico facility, the blast furnaces and smokestacks of the refineries, the new computerized world of Vega or the hundreds of containers that intercontinental shipping lines unload round the clock on the edges of the motionless lagoon. Through the lives of workers, manager, truck drivers and the cook of the last trattoria left in Marghera, the images help us to understand what remains of Italy’s great dream of industrial progress now that the country is immersed, after the crises and wounds of the recent past, in global flows of finance and migration.

Ferruccio, storia di un robottino by Stefano De Felici (7')
Duccio is an inventor by vocation, and in his home-workshop takes on an exceptional challenge. Thanks to his determination and a bit of magic, a short-circuit will create Ferruccio, a robot created by assembling devices that have been recycled.

Olmo by Silvio Soldini (10')
80-year-old Olmo looks out of a window of a building in the suburban area of a city. His 8-year-old grandson, Giulio, is reading him an article from the newspaper about melting glaciers, the greenhouse fifer, and CO2... “What is C-O-2?” asks the child. “Do you remember the Carbon dioxide we studied?” replies Grandpa. “The one the trees breathe?” says Giulio. the next day, instead of going to school, they leave for a short tour looking for an old tree.

On Sunday, April 25th, which is also Italian Liberation Day, we will host a live Q/A at 11:00 AM with special guests from the three movies.
