Farfallino by Adele Dipasquale
In Farfallino, with English subtitles
The film is an investigation of ‘Farfallino’ language, a coded version of Italian used by children to secretly communicate between each other. In Italian, literally, farfallino means language of butterflies, from the animal’s noun farfalla. The work starts from the proposition of a unintelligible communication capable of transpassing species through incomprehension. While employing mechanism of exclusion and inclusion, languages creates separatisms and possible alliances, so that, eventually, the only faithful speech would be a broken one.

The New Capital by Juliette Le Monnyer
in French & Arabic, with English subtitles
The New Capital documents the construction of the new Egyptian capital in the middle of the desert, by calling up satellite photographs and prospective modeling of the project. The desert that has become an anticipation invades us with a doubt : is it the future, a science fiction in progress or an already obsolete colonization ? At the dawn of Smart-cities that cut into plots a territory considered vacant and unproductive, can the desert thwart the plans and borders of nation-states ?
sound mixing : Lucien Richardson, color grading : Maxime Gourdon, director : Juliette Le Monnyer
