Sightseen from another sud – Poster and illustration by Virginia Mori

Castellaneta Film Fest - Manifesto 2016 / Virginia Mori

It takes a look back at home, while we are moving forward.
It takes a look at the world to aim for the horizon,
yet it takes a look inside not to get lost during the journey.
It takes a South to indicate the route.
We need to look at a different South for a new story to tell.
