  • Il Grande Freddo - ovvero riuscirà Giordano Falzoni ... by Alberto Grifi

    A film about painting concerning Giordano struggling with Sleeping Beauty, this is the challenge. Will art, free of museums and academies, be able to give back to the child, raped and then abandoned on the snow, the desire to go on living? Giordano, the Prince Charming bearing butterfly catchers and rotating optical games, plods along sinking into the snow and .... But is revolutionary creativity not the one that makes the bird in the cage sing? It is the reason why the imprisoned bird breaks the cage! Year: 1971 Length 20'
  • I fuori campo di Anna - rivedersi diversi

    Anna's off stages give us a first taste of the restoration still in progress of the eleven hours of videotape (a quarter-inch and a half-inch open reel) that comprise the filming of Anna, the unassembled diary of this humane, artistic experiment, made by Alberto Grifi and Massimo Sarchielli. Thanks to the Associazione Alberto Grifi who has provided the material, the Cineteca Nazionale is recovering in digital the original videos, thus realising one of Grifi's 'impossible' projects. Anna's off stages comprise five unpublished fragments (for the moment we have only published one where Alberto Grifi is present), which shows that it is necessary to start again from the original media to properly recover the work as well as the wealth lying underneath that this material has to offer. Anna's off stages were presented for the first time at the Mostra di Venezia in 2011. The digital conversion of the videotapes is under the charge of the Cineteca Nazionale and has been implemented by La Camera Ottica-Crea of the Università degli studi of Udine - Dams of Gorizia.
