TEAM MARCO by Julio Vincent Gambuto  

Marco, 11, is obsessed with his electronics and hardly leaves the house. But when his grandmother dies and his grandfather moves in, Marco’s life is turned upside-down and he’s forced…to go play outside. “Nonno” (Grandpa) introduces him to bocce — the world’s oldest game — and to the neighborhood crew of old Italian men who play daily at the local court. With sport, laughter and love, Marco finds connection to other people “in real life” and rounds up a team of neighborhood kids to take on his grandfather and his pals.

PER UN PELO by Carlo Piscicelli 

Per un pelo è un breve documentario sulla vita e le opere di Federico Federici, ovvero Gaudenzio, artista italiano poco noto in patria che si è ritagliato ugualmente un posto d’onore nella perfomance art. Usando il suo corpo come strumento artistico, in particolare i suoi baffi, Gaudenzio ha sperimentato un metodo di comunicazione nuovo con il pubblico.
