MDFF2020 is happening. Despite the troubling situation we’re living in these days, there’s something that can keep us company while lockdowning again at home.
The 8th edition of the festival, curated by Silvia Robertazzi and Porzia Bergamasco, is all about Re-Connecting. In the middle of the pandemic, the word Re-connecting is rousing attention and consciousness on life’s and planet’s priorities. The interruption brought by the lockdown led us to consider what’s the essential, rethink about the past to build a present-future more in harmony with Nature and each one of us’s life.
MDFF’s program embraced these thoughts to investigate design approaches and their applications to show how architecture and design can contribute to re-connect, in order to improve human experience. The link between man and nature, the connection with the city, citizens’ real needs, and of course the designer’s work, are some of the topics featured in the movies you’ll be able to see from tonight. More than 40 titles divided under the categories of ARCHITECTURE, ART OF THINKING, DESIGN, FOOD, SUSTAINABILITY, URBAN LIFE.
Also talks with important guests like directors, curators, designers, teachers and entrepreneurs were recorded at the Franco Parenti Theater and will be available for viewers to see also after the festival ends.
Some of the movies we can’t wait to see: It’s dutch design by Elbe Stevens, to understand the approach behind the dutch trend dominating the international design scene; La nave by Hans Wilschut (italian première), describing life inside the impressive flat complex in the neighborhood of Scampia, Napoli; Charlotte Perriand. Pionnière de l’art de vivre by Stephane Guez, one of the four monographic films of the festival.
