The three Italian gems brought to DocFest by guest curator Mariana Melani are: THE CHALLENGE OF VENICE that reveals plans to save the world’s most glamorous, magical, sinking city; VINYLMANIA about Italy’s love of old-school record albums; and ONE DAY’S REMINDER, an experimental collage of images of a little town after all of its tourists leave for the season.
THE CHALLENGE OF VENICE : Is Venice sinking? Global warming is causing an increase in the sea level and, in the meantime, the land in the lagoon is subsiding. Floods cause both immediate and long-term harm: a pair of Wellington boots may not be sufficient to move on foot and boats may not manage to pass under bridges. Most Venetians are placing their hopes on the Modulo Sperimentale Elettromeccanico, an experimental project in the final stages of construction.
