HMD with Ferrania, Maya Deren and Péter Forgács. Archivio Aperto 2021
October 16 @ 6:00 pm - October 27 @ 6:00 pm CEST
HMD held by Italian Home Movies Archive is part of Archivio Aperto Festival with online and in person program on Ferrania, Maya Deren, Péter Forgács and other amateur and experimental films.
What better way to celebrate Home Movie Day than to go back to the origins? The lives that revolve around home movies are not only those of the people who film and are filmed. We propose for HMD a trip through time and space, in the Ferrania film factory.
Fantasmi a Ferrania, Diego Scarponi – doc, Italy 2021
Online free on MyMovies platform from 16th October 6PM (Rome time code) to 27th of October. Italian, English subtitles.
The story of a mythical, world-famous factory in a remote valley in Italy, Ferrania, its inhabitants, workers, managers and film lovers, who were often the employees themselves. An investigation enriched by archive images, home movies, photographs and newsreels. 100 years after its birth, what is left of that factory, a company, a brand, a territory? The history of Ferrania is a concrete story but also a metaphor for the past that never disappears completely.
The documentary is produced in collaboration with Home Movies, thanks to the amateur film collection project Ferrania a memoria. To discover more about the film: https://www.archivioaperto.it/evento/fantasmi-a-ferrania/
