MAXXI and the Rome Film Festival


9 – 17 November
MAXXI Auditorium – Tickets: CinemaXXI € 7,00; Cinema Espanso € 3,00, tickets may be purchased from the museum and Parco della Musica auditorium ticket offices

The collaboration between MAXXI and the Rome Film Festival continues.

Between 9 and 17 November the museum will be hosting the experimental section CinemaXXI, open to contaminations between the arts, of the festival’s 7th edition and the retrospective Cinema espanso (1962-1984), realised for the festival by the Experimental Cinematography Centre/National Cinetheque which analyses and explores ties between film and the visual arts in the 60s and 70s.

Defined by the new director Marco Müller as “a space for wagering on the new, for witnessing the fluidity of contemporary film”. CinemaXXI will see alternate, feature films, medium-length and short films, in competition and otherwise, including Dreams by James Franco and the participatory film Steekspel/Tricked by Paul Verhoeven.

Among the other films being screened are Centro historico made by four directors, Kaurismäki, De Oliveira, Victor Erice and Pedro Costa and another hors concours collective film, Mundo Invisivel, made by 12 directors including Egoyan, Anghelopoulos and Wenders, who describe invisible worlds that hide away within contemporary society from Brazil to Armenia.

In the CinemaXXI section Italy will be represented by Gianfranco Rosi with the medium-length film devoted to Renato Nicolini Tanti future possibili, the film Tutto parla di te by Alina Marazzi, mid-way between fiction and non-fiction, by Elisabetta Sgarbi’s Il viaggio della signorina Vila and the independent film makers Zapruder’s Pleora. Il dono 3d.
