Una questione privata (Vita di Beppe Fenoglio )

Un documentario di Guido Chiesa (1996), per Rai 3. Sullo sfondo di un’Alba provinciale e conservatrice, i racconti di chi ha conosciuto Beppe Fenoglio (10 mesi di lavoro e quasi 200 interviste curate da Piero Negri, Gianpiero Vico e Massimo Bergadano del Circolo Fenoglio ’96) permettono di ricostruirne la personalità, le difficoltà esistenziali e le passioni; il rapporto con la famiglia, le donne e la città che non ha mai abbandonato; l’esperienza militare e partigiana; l’impegno civile dopo la guerra; il laboratorio letterario; i legami con gli altri intellettuali; fino alla malattia e la morte nel 1963.

The Wake Up Call

It was almost one year ago when I decided to document the ever increasing politicized street art in Athens. One could not miss the colored messages that were filling our daily strolls in the Greek capital’s center. Urban works of art that were getting erased and drawn over again and again, inspired not only by political the developments in Greece but also the need to criticize ourselves and our political system. A need that essentially intended to make the Greek society more self-aware of what is going on, to wake up.

Chats Perchés

[via arco, “Chris Marker, 1921-2012”]

Made in his signature style with loosely connected and rambling thoughts jumping now and again to amusing or amazing juxtapositions and revelations, Chats Perchés. was originally made for French television, and starts by exploring yellow painted Cheshire-like cats that began to appear all over Paris. From there, we meander through an exploration of the previous four years, from 9/11 and the Iraq war to scandals in French politics, all punctuated by the return of the cats.
