Single thread of six days Stabiese: Empathy.
“The theme for the 2014 edition – explain the artistic directors and founders of the Festival Turi Finocchiaro and Nathalie Rossetti – embraces a wide spectrum of definitions. We give priority to this: ‘ability to place themselves in the situation of another person or, more precisely, to immediately understand the mental processes of the other. ‘Creative documentaries selected (shorts and features) will tell the ability or the inability to experience empathy from all points of view (empathy for each other, for nature, for music, for art.) Just so, in fact, the public will find this quality of being human in the most intimate film but also experimental. ”
And as in previous years, the Festival Faito doc will give voice to all the arts such as music, for example, always in close communion with the world of cinema and never as in this case related to the topic of empathy. Thanks to the performance of Molo Sàyat, a group of nomadic musicians, audiences will travel symbolically from the Middle East to the Balkans to the Mediterranean, getting lost in the songs of love and loneliness, tears and laughter. On stage, in the shade of the beech trees will go up even Murat Iclinalca and Aram Kerovpyan ready to rock the audience with their voice, making dream distant landscapes and legendary Anatolia and Armenia. Stand out, also in calendar art exhibitions. This year, the youth of the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples led by Gerardo De Simone and Enzo Palumbo, operating “empathize” with the beech trees of the mountain Stabia, reproduce some works of Land Art, at the going down of the sun will project a visual and sonic performance figures of the ancient beech forest animal.
