Play with Cinema

Twelve young filmmakers, twelve films that for various reasons have attracted the attention of the festivals, the critics and the public: twelve stories that trace a contemporary portrait of Italian society.

On the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the Istituto Luce-Cinecittà, from 1 July though to 10 October, MAXXI will be hosting the film season XXI SECOLO curated by Luciano Sovena. Screenings but also seminars with the leading talents to emerge in recent years who, as well as showing their debut films, will be conversing with their colleagues and the public, live and without any form of mediation.

Pursuing happiness is the very aim of life: it is clear…
“That whether we believe or not in this or that religion, we all search for something better in life. Therefore I think that the very direction of life is happiness.“. Tenzin Gyatso – XIV Dalai Lama
Sergio, musician by vocation, taxi driver through necessity, turned his back on music ten years earlier, when his elder brother Alfredo abandoned him just as their artistic career was taking off. From that day Sergio withdrew to his taxi, a sealed microcosm through which he filters the outside world and in which people, lives and coincidences come and go: an exploration of perception, in search of happiness.
SpeakerAlessandro Rak Italian cartoonist, animator and director.
