2015 Edition, Early Heads-ups

The 2.3rd edition of [A]RCIPELAGO | International Festival of Short Films and New Images is approaching at the speed of light. The curtain will be raised on November 4th, in Palladium Theatre in Rome, disclosing at last a fantastic assortment of Italian and international short films, newly unearthed works, several Italian and even world premieres, homages and retrospectives, interesting raids into the future of images but also surprising explorations into their recent past. All of this, with free admission.

At the heart of [A]RCIPELAGO 2015, the first complete retrospective dedicated to Italian filmmakers Manetti Bros. (who made their debut twenty years ago with the omnibus film DeGenerazione); Pier Paolo Pasolini viewed from abroad; the not to be missed Italian premiere of the 1955 tv series Around the World with Orson Welles (directed by, and starring, Welles himself); sex education in British cinema through social propaganda from the 30s to the 70s; historical and new Street Art films, from USA and Italy. And, of course, several premieres of feature films, from the extraordinary Visitors by Godfrey Reggio, to the much-awaited Station to Station by Doug Aitken, to the new, extremely dramatic work by Costanza Quatriglio 87 Hours, a “shocking” documentary which will stir up large and passionate discussions because of the civil, ethic and legal aspects of its painful story of human rights violation, and also because of its bold visual language.

Next week the complete program will be published on the festival website and the full line-up of [A]RCIPELAGO 2015 will be presented to the press, on October 30th. Meanwhile, the following are the main highlights and sections of the festival:
