L' ARCHIVIO A ORIENTE
Istituto Luce Cinecittà, AsiaticaFilmMediale
During the 20th century, Italian operators are sent to Asia to shoot news images. Today, four Asian directors reedit them. Goutam Ghose (India) creates a sort of exotic musical; Firouzeh Khosrovani (Iran) reviews his life and the history of his country; Makoto Shinozaki (Japan) reflects on the nature of images themselves; Wang Xiaoshuai (China) pays tribute to his centenarian grandmother.
