LOOK WHO'S THERE by Riccardo Camilli
Claudia, saleswoman in an underwear shop, lives in the suburb of Rome. She’s got an eighteen years old daughter, Nina, with which she shares everything, including the sorrow she keeps inside since three years: Marco, their “man-of-the-house”, died, together with other 9 people, during the breakdown of a bridge in the region of Marche, while he was coming back from a vinyl market, his greatest passion. Life goes on sadly: customers gossip about Claudia’s disgrace, the press looks for her only to benefit from that terrible matter, her eldest sister Katia throws herself away into very nasty relationships, her mother Marisa can’t start a new life after her wedding has fallen apart, Nina can’t let herself go to her first sexual nor sentimental experiences…

ROMY, I'M SHY by Andreas Gruetzner
Juergen Vollmer met The Beatles 1960 in Hamburg music club Kaiserkeller.
They hung around together, Vollmer started photographing them and when they met again in Paris, The Beatles insisted to get his haircut. Narrow-minded Hamburg in the 50th and 60th made him escape to
Paris. He took pictures of beatniks while having sex, moved on to New York and L.A., where he started his career as set photographer on Hollywood filmsets (J.V.: ‘It was awful most of the time’) and took picture of several stars.
