PERPETUUM STABILE

Every film by itself exists as an animated micro entity, but also as a part of a cycle which can go around in circles infinitively. There is no hero is a classical sense. The essential question is how much we can reduce an idea and still make it function as a miniature entity. That is why a gag is introduced- By itself…

SYNOPSIS

Every film by itself exists as an animated micro entity, but also as a part of a cycle which can go around in circles infinitively. There is no hero is a classical sense. The essential question is how much we can reduce an idea and still make it function as a miniature entity. That is why a gag is introduced- By itself or as a global metaphor it functions as a key to acknowledge the position of absurdity. It’s the animated steam engine of the late 19th century.

Things that are said in the dark is a short digital film that speaks of young adults. It spies them during a night of their life. One day apparently like any other, a Saturday evening at the end of September, they are cheerful and determined. Claudia is finishing putting her make-up on and they are ready to go out. Or almost, because all of a sudden there is a blackout. It is the worst blackout in Italian history. Plunged in the most complete darkness. They initially feel suspended, lost. But they start to like it, to feel themselves free from that sudden lack of stimuli (no more music, TV, household appliances) and when they understand that the light probably won’t return as soon as they think, strangely they relax and want to play…

 

COME IERI

A family and their evenings spent in front of the TV, play station, computer, without ever communicating. But there comes an evening when there is a blackout and they are forced to have dinner by candlelight in absolute silence…

ASPETTANDO IL TRENO

An elderly woman is making coffee while a man sleeps restlessly. The man wakes up. He runs in vain to catch a train that speeds away. He wants to leave, to flee: he relives his suicide – his obscure illusion – he mimes it repeatedly. Other trains pass — in vain.

CAPALBIO INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL
Miglior Film Italiano

 

Catherine McGilvray was born in Rome in 1965 of an Australian father and French mother. She received a degree in History of the Theatre at the Sapienza University in Rome. She later obtained a diploma in Directing from the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia and did further study in film and television writing at the A.F.T.R.S. in Sydney, Australia. She worked for several years with the Barberio Corsetti theatrical company before becoming a translator of literary works. She is the author and hostess of feature shows for Rai Radio3.

An elderly woman is making coffee while a man sleeps restlessly. The man wakes up. He runs in vain to catch a train that speeds away. He wants to leave, to flee: he relives his suicide – his obscure illusion – he mimes it repeatedly. Other trains pass — in vain. Then the noise of time is drowned by silence — the white, pure light of two waiting spirits. Together they try a dance step: they are youth and old age embraced to one another. Finally, when tenderness is no longer opposed by obsession, she leaves. He continues to sleep but no longer dreams.

Into a seedy room, there is a gold-plated watch. It is decorated with the small statues of a satyr, an angel and two couples of lovers. The engine driver lives and works in the clockwork. He’s a lonely person who works hard until a silver woman appears from a bright loophole. They fall in love at first sight, they dance, until they melt together, changing the material of the clock, which becomes a perfect union of silver and gold. The angel exults in glory and time stops.
