Stefano Cau / Italy (14'39'')
A small isolated village of the countryside is dying since no babies have been born in a long time. A man doesn't give up, and places a few speakers to play the sound of "extinct things": by the dry river we hear water sound, by the still bells you hear the tolling, by the stuffed animals you hear their call. The only hope of the village, whose inhabitants are just a dozen of elders, is a pregnant girl. She feels the weight of the responsibility and wants to run away. One day she tried to escape, but her run is interrupt by her labour. The elderly inhabitants will force her to give birth in the village square, a sacrifice that recalls a fertility ceremony.

Argentina: a journey
Fulvia Bernacca / Argentina (5'30'')
In 2015 I travelled alone in Argentina for 5 weeks. I was completely captured by the light, colours and sounds of this land. It is impossible to tell all the experiences and emotions I lived through on what was the most important journey of my life. I have only tried to fix some suggestions and many memories with this very short film.
