In her hometown, Naples, Annalaura di Luggo worked with 20 blind people to explore their inner universe. Using her custom-built camera she photographed their clouded, scarred, and dysfunctional eyes. Then, the artist recorded and filmed encounters and interviews with her subjects. The project culminated in a multimedia installation curated by Raisa Clavijo and the documentary film co-written by di Luggo and Nanni Zedda, and directed by the latter. Both the documentary film and the installation are striking and deeply emotional portrayals of what it means to see with only tactile and auditory senses: the portrayal of an alternative vision.

“OSIMI” chronicles the life of a man called the “Nelson Mandela” of Central Asia. With our world in turmoil through cultural and philosophical differences, the story of one man - in a country most could not locate on a map - changes the paradigm of how to create peace. Narrated by Ali MacGraw and filmed in Tajikistan, India, France, Russia, Spain and throughout the U.S., through Muhammad Osimi we witness the power of art, education, and science. Using culture - language, music, poetry, and literature - as a tool to connect people even during a bloody civil war, his work created a meeting point for everyone from every side to help heal and change his country. The concepts that he lived for, fought for, and ultimately for which he died, can serve us all and continue to grow through his family, friends, and students.

Documentary - 1 Hour 24 Minutes (USA)

Man in Camo is an explosive commentary on the life and times of filmmaker and artist Ethan Minsker, a Washington D.C. native. Growing up on the turbulent streets in D.C. in the 1980s was violent and uneasy, but Minsker found solace in his home, making films and growing his own artistic credibility.

Navigating a diagnosis of dyslexia, the abrasiveness of the punk scene, and political parents, Minsker takes us on a journey through the mind of a man who has leaped over hurdles in order to make art that matters. He displays his thought process from making creative films to fanzines and aggressively reiterates why a creative life is important to society and to life itself. The film is complete with commentary from Minsker, as well as those close to him, including his mother and personal friends. Now a father, Minsker looks back on the times that shaped the man he is today.

Daniel longed to touch the moon; with Sandy’s help, he’d reach the stars. It was 1969 and America was embarking on the biggest adventure known to humankind with its voyage to the moon. Daniel too was pursuing the unknown; leaving the path of isolation he had known for so long to embrace the love of another. The only question was would he be able to maintain that trajectory or would he veer off course never to be seen again. That was the challenge for ‘The Astronot’.
