DROP BY SOMETIME, Director Kosara Mitic | Ex Repubblica Jugoslava di Macedonia, FYROM, 2013 |14´
Amy is in charge of the store that night. She is a young sales woman dressed in old fashioned clothes. As every other night she is helping the customers in the wee hours, unaware of the danger that lurks near-by. The film starts as a typical thriller, a tense atmosphere, fake parameters that lead the viewers to believe they’ll witness a crime, giving it a new psychologically and sexually exciting dimension, immediately after the twist, turning it into a true and sincere romance at the end.

While tracking up on a mountain, two hikers find the massacred body of 7-year old girl, Camellia. Detective Veli investigates the monstrous crime with the help of the girl’s father, Mr. Herman. Of all the strange things that surround the investigation, the strangest one is that, although there are traces of Camellia’s blood on the crime scene, there are no human remains. The only clue Detective Veli has is a sample of pubic hair that was found on the crime scene.
The evidence is not the only puzzling thing in this case. Mr. Herman’s behavior fluctuates from obsession with his daughter’s death, to a resignation to die himself. The absence of a body also means that – there is no murder to investigate. The last straw for Detective Veli is the revelation that the found hair actually belongs to a woman, and not just any woman, but it completely matches the DNA profile of young Camellia. This revelation gives Veli a headache: Camellia is too young to have pubic hair.
Now Detective Veli starts looking at a different scenario: What if the real victim in this case is not the daughter, but the father?

Gando, un piccolo villaggio nelle campagne del Burkina Faso, accoglie ed ospita per un periodo di sei settimane un gruppo di studenti dell’Accademia di architettura di Mendrisio al seguito del loro insegnante, l’architetto africano Diébédo Francis Kéré. Durante questo workshop lavorano e vivono a stretto contatto con la realtà del villaggio, elaborano e gettano le basi di un edificio utilizzando le risorse locali disponibili coadiuvati dall’intera popolazione della regione.
La principale attività del compound è l’approvvigionamento d’acqua, elemento imprescindibile per la vita della comunità. Ai pozzi si avvicendano senza sosta donne, uomini e bambini dalle prime luci dell’alba sino al tramonto.
Gli studenti si miscelano armoniosamente a questa realtà lontana e diversa divenendone parte integrante. Una lettura poetica di un’esperienza di scambio interculturale, descritta e raccontata in immagini e musica.

ZONA MULINI NUOVI Cristina Bergamini, Giuliano Garagnani, Italia 2014 | 36´
Attraversata la zona industriale nord di Modena, superata qualche rotatoria assieme ai camion che vanno ai mulini industriali, subito dopo la ferrovia, nascosta dai pioppi c'è una vecchia casa di campagna costruita con i mattoni uno sull'altro, senza cemento, costruita per accogliere i braccianti stagionali che lavoravano le terre costeggiate dal Naviglio. Dopo la guerra si trasforma in condominio, affittuari invece dei contadini popolano questa “casa paese” dove nascono sempre nuove storie di aggregazione, mentre all'intorno dilaga la periferia diffusa.
Luca proprietario “filosofo” con l'amore per la vita di una volta è l'anfitrione di un microcosmo con le sue regole e le sue contraddizioni che diventa un mondo in alternativa al mondo là fuori.
La casa con la sua architettura immutata continua, come in un tempo sospeso, ad ospitare gli inquilini e le loro storie.
