The diary “behind the scenes” of the 2020 edition of the Venice International Film Festival, which was held with the restrictions imposed by the safety protocols established for the Covid-19 pandemic.

DIRECTOR'S NOTES:
Last year La Biennale asked me to document a unique and perhaps even historic edition (the question remains open) of the Venice Film Festival, the edition organized in the heart of a global pandemic. I was working on another film and had only a few days available, but it was a significant challenge and I accepted. The result is a short diary in film. I can’t really call it a film, these are notes taken live of an unexpected part of the history of the Venice Film Festival and of cinema itself, these are simply men and women whom I met at the heart of the Film Festival, who reflect upon what they and we are experiencing.
