Runtime:  14 minutes 20 seconds

The short’s main characters are Simone – played by Guglielmo Favilla – a young and ambitionless unemployed man, and the titular Djinn – Francesco Pannofino – an ancient and powerful genie that is reduced to grant wishes in a small suburban office.
The first of the two wishes for a job, whereas the second only wishes to steal as many wishes as possible to his “customer”, to obtain as many years of life for himself. Both characters are running from a crisis: Simone from the economic depression, and the Djinn from a crisis of the imagination that is perhaps a direct consequence of the first.Ι

Introduction to the Episode of “Wood” (木 “mù”) introducing Chinese culture by means of Chinese characters.
This episode is to explain the fact that in Chinese culture, people and things that don’t have a striking appearance, such as “wood,” are usually appreciated too, as they may have strong inner strength.
Take the idiom呆若木雞 “dāi ruò mù jī” (dumb as a wooden chicken), and the characters of 呆 “dāi” (stupid) and休 “xiū” (rest) for instance. All of these characters contain the wisdom and beauty of Chinese culture. When children enjoy the stories in this episode, they can learn some Chinese culture.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” type=”0″][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://youtu.be/QAMuHsPuNz0″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” type=”0″][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text css_animation=””]

Runtime:  31 minutes

Twenty girls grow up in an orphanage called “O Viveiro” (“the nursery”, in Portuguese), building their lives one millimeter per day, in the miserable and unhealthy town of Chitima, in Mozambique.
Orphan or poor, or both, they get an opportunity to invest in themselves, learn knowledge or professions, re­educate to receiving affection, set fractures of what past experiences have shattered. Not all of them succeed.
“Dignity” narrates without rhetoric these girls and young women’s stories, their epic, their poetry, their falls, their success.
But above all their splendor. Elegant and powerful photography to show the inner beauty of the girls. Their ability to grow strongly from nothing, like flowers in the desert; stories are narrated mostly through their words, their need to pass on the story of themselves, create their own myth­making.
A documentary about the possibility of dignity for women, for all women, in Africa and elsewhere.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” type=”0″][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DmK43ifrO4″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=”” type=”0″][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text css_animation=””]
