Gorge coeur ventre, by Maud Alpi

Talking of the present, to the future. Once again this year, the Concorso Cineasti del presente looks at the present day through the eyes of those who represent the cinema of the future. 15 first and second films of which 13 are making their world debut, with a  truth of vision triggered by a primordial drive. Both experimentation and classical narratives, but all with a thirst for the future.
