Pictures at an Universal Exposition
A documentary film

MON, 5 FEB 2018

Milano Design Film Festival in collaboration with Nuovi Paesaggi Urbani presents the Première of the documentary film by Nicolò Bassetti, to the general public. A simple story that exploits analogies to discover what it means to belong to a place and how this bestows citizenship rights on those living there.

The major events have no need for cities, they are in competition with the city, which they represent and

to a large degree replace. This statement, may seems to be contradictory, but it is in accordance with the reality.  It is behind of the idea of the film. A huge spaceship lands on the outskirts of a large city. The spaceship is Expo (Milan 2015). All round it, looking out onto this sudden and previously unimaginable landscape, without a past and what’s more without a future, live other human beings who have nothing to do with it. Magnifiche Sorti was born out of necessity: the yearning to tell, to develop a narrative around the daily existences of people living and breathing in the new invisible cities, in our contemporary urban

communities, places with hardly any history but plenty to look forward to. The stories of the people who settle and endure life while dealing with all the usual longings and obsessions, the necessities and opportunities.

This first screening of Magnifiche Sorti at the Triennale Teatro dell’Arte is part of the 2018 calendar of the extra-festival activities of MDFF.
