Double rendez-vous in January for the gLocal Doc showcase, with "I’m in Love with My Car" and Cinematografica Perona.

Cinema Massimo – 12 and 14 January 2018, 8.30 p.m. – Screen Three

Double rendez-vous in January with gLocal Doc, the showcase conceived by Piemonte Movie in collaboration with the National Cinema Museum and Film Commission Torino Piemonte in order to bring cinema about reality to screens. The first rendez-vous, on Friday 12 January at 8.30 p.m., is dedicated to the automobile crisis, with the screening of the documentary I'm in Love with My Car by Michele Mellara and Alessandro Rossi. Before the film screening, there will be a meeting with the directors.

The second event will be on Sunday 14th January at 8.30 p.m. with Cinematografica Perona by Azzurra Fragale and Mauro Corneglio, a documentary which, starting from the history of the Perona family, retraces a century of cinematic life in a provincial town, Cuorgnè. The goal is to retrace the history of cinema screenings as a cornerstone for the community: a meeting place that has created emotions ever since its beginning, among love stories, adventures and trips to distant worlds. Before the screening there will be a meeting with the directors.

Admission 6.00/4.00 euro.

I’m in Love with My Car

(Italy 2017, 72’, HD, col.)

The automobile has marked more than a century of human history. The spreading of these four wheels has changed the way we live, feed and move. Cars have changed human beings, changed their perception of the world. Mankind, who has changed to adapt to the car, will have to undergo transformation again. The social model founded on cars is in trouble. Pollution, the economic crisis, rising fuel costs, health problems and the assertion of new models of urban sustainability are undermining certainties in this sector.

Cinematografica Perona

(Italy 2017, 41’, HD, col.)

Cuorgnè, Turin. Twenties. The show comes to life on the theatre stage, the audience takes part in cowboys chases from its seats. Fifties. The adventure continues in a new state-of-the-art room, where passions, adventures and animated drawings alternate. Seventies. Shows are transferred to the "Margherita", dedicated to the memory of the grandmother: the community continues to meet and dream. This film tells the story of a family that has renewed the magic of cinema in the Canavese area for four generations.
