is a film over an hour long, drawn, colored and animated by a single person. This is a first for Italy. The talk at the Villa degli Autori on Saturday, September 5, at 12:30, is about how this feat was made possible, thanks mainly to the invaluable training provided by IFA
, a small film school in Pescara headed by Alessandro and Cristiano Di Felice
. To make their idea for this film a reality, the IFA team turned to another school with ambition, decidedly interested in scouting out new talent, the Laboratorio del Collettivo Mina
The director of Bangland, Lorenzo Berghella, will share with the audience how the film came about, from the first sketches that would go into a making a comic book, to his meeting with the Di Felice brothers; as well as describing how the web series Too Bad, the inspiration for Bangland, came into being; and finally the collaboration of Gianluca Arcopinto and the Collettivo Mina, who encouraged the small creative team already at work to raise the stakes and make Bangland.
