CORPO SAPIENS / Racconti dal corpo
Il corpo è il nostro primo mezzo di espressione e comunicazione. Attraverso la memoria, ogni corpo raccoglie il suo passato e racconta se stesso. Ogni corpo racconta una storia.

“Non esistono parole più chiare del linguaggio del corpo, una volta che si è imparato a leggerlo.” ALEXANDER LOWEN

Siamo in cerca di cortometraggi che mostrino la centralità del corpo e gli infiniti gesti e azioni che la manifestano: il corpo è ciò che ci permette di fare, il corpo è ciò che ci permette di raccontare. Cerchiamo storie in cui il corpo e le sue infinite capacità siano protagoniste.


Terre da Film is a place where people meet up to live an experience through cinema, art and more. Every summer artists, filmmakers, poets, activists and artisans live for a few days in the town of Canelli (AT) to create a unique temporary community that merges with those already existing on site.

Terre da Film Festival promoter is the Cultural Association Studio Azzurro ricerca - STRIAZ.


CORPO SAPIENS - Tales from the body

The body is our primary means of expression and communication. Through the memory, every body collects its past and tells its own story. Each body narrates a tale.

"No words are so clear as the language of body expression once one has learned to read it" ALEXANDER LOWEN

We are looking for short films that showcase the centrality of the body and the endless gestures and actions that express it: the body is what enables us to do, the body is what enables us to tell.
We are looking for stories where the body and its infinite capabilities take center stage.

We select short films of fiction, animation, documentary, experimental and more, with a maximum running time of 30 minutes.
