‘Italia, Italia’ is launched at Vancouver's Documentary Festival

Over one thousand people attended the section devoted to Italy at  Vancouver's Doxa Documentary Film Festival. The event takes place every year to celebrate the importance of the documentary film genre, which describes the complexity of present time starting from the director's viewpoint. This year's edition of the Festival featured for the first time 'Italia,Italia', a programme of auteur-driven documentaries, thanks to the support granted by Italy's Consulate General, the Italian Cultural Centre of Vancouver and the Italian Cultural Institute in Toronto. 

The seven Italian documentary films screened, namely Claudia Tosi's 'Avevo un Sogno' ( I had a dream), Enrico Maisto's 'La Convocazione' (The Call), Sara Fgaier's 'Gli Anni', Marco Piccaredda's and Gaïa Formenti's 'Città Giardino', Philippe Fontana's 'Mare Amarum', 'Ndrangheta, une mafia d'affaire et de sang' ( 'Ndrangheta: A Mafia of Business and Blood) by Corradino Durruti, 'My Home, in Libya' by Martina Melilli, 'Basileus, la scuola dei re' (Basileus: The School of Kings) by Alessandro Marinelli, and Giovanni Donfrancesco's 'Il Resoluto' (The Resolute), have been complemented by debates, some of which presented by Claudia Tosi and Enrico Maisco  and the French documentarian Mosco Levi Boucault. Three of Levi Boucault's works focusing on Italian themes were also presented, namely “Berlusconi, affaire Mondadori, (Berlusconi:The Mondadori Affaire) “Ils étaient les Brigades Rouges” (They Were the Red Brigades) and “Corleone”.

The cooperation between the Consulate General of Italy in Vancouver and the DOXA Documentary Film Festival is part of a broader programme promoting Italian film-making, also in conjunction with the Vancouver International Film Festival and the Italian Film Festival.
