Bimba col Pugno Chiuso / Screening/ Pianofabriek

Due to the strike on 15/12 Pianofabriek will be closed. The new date for the screening will be communicated soon.

Bimba Col Pugno Chiuso (Little Girl With Iron First) by Claudio di Mambro, Luca Mandrile, Umberto Migliaccio
Documentary, 58′, Italy, 2013
Giovanna Marturano is 101 years old. She is an antifascist, a partisan and a feminist. Little girl with iron fist narrates Giovanna’s life, from her earliest memories when as a child living in Rome she witnessed the rise of fascism in 1922, till the present. She has lived a long and eventful life against injustice and oppression because, she argues: “You can only but struggle, that’s a fact…”.
Two other features make this documentary unique. First, it is an animated documentary and second it is a grass-root production. As a result of a crowd funding campaign throughout Italy, 441 individuals and groups have pooled their resources together thus making this project possible. A century of Italian history is here narrated by a young 101 years old woman with irony and wit.

Ciclope is Resisting!

Ciclope is a collective of audiovisual artists aiming today for an utopia, attempting to look from a different point of view. Ciclope is a group of resistant people who embarked in an explorative trip of the concept of Resistance to connect, experience, share and learn what resistance is through different languages, cultures, histories, materials. Ciclope is a single eye. A shot. A moment. An instant in time. Ciclope is a vision. Not single, not unique, but universal. A multiple vision through one single eye. Our third one. We are one.

From November till January, we will investigate, share, collaborate, propose and create within the context of Saint Gilles and in an ongoing  process of interaction with the city. Our aim is to discover and explore the forms and shapes of resistance together and within the city, by practising arts, as a form of resilience.

We want to actively involve the people and places of Saint Gilles, by offering artistic experiences, learning opportunities, moments of sharing, in a two way process of discovering the boundaries of the concept of resistance, where we place ourselves both as providers and participants of such discovery.

We will organise screenings, debates, perfomances, workshops, exhibitions, we will experience art and we will do it together with anyone who will want to experience it with us. Participation and Creativity are key in our travel.
