Short film in competition

We Should All Be Futurists

Directed by Angela Norelli
Italia 2023
Runtime 11'

At the turn of the 20th century, in a suggestive correspondence spanning nearly two decades, Rosa confides in her friend Giorgina, telling her a secret: the machine-extended mechanical man envisioned by Marinetti is not a near-future concept for mankind, as Futurists purport. It is, instead, a very real present for womankind, and Giorgina can easily order a specimen in the mail. The entire short film was made by re-editing scenes from a number of silent films.

Angela Norelli (Rome,1996) is a director, screenwriter and film editor. She graduated at Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome and received her Masters in Philosophy at Sapienza University of Rome, with a dissertation on Dziga Vertov. She is interested in mixing fiction, documentary and other visual sources, with different qualities and resolutions, exploring the blurred boundaries between what is considered cinema and what (according to some) is not. In 2021, she wrote, edited and directed the found-footage Children Love to Hide, in competition at the 39. Turin Film Festival and later selected in several film festivals around the world. In the same year she edited the short film The dependent variables by Lorenzo Tardella, which premiered at the 2022 Berlinale and which was awarded the 2023 David di Donatello for Best Short Film. She also collaborated on archival research for Pietro Marcello and was assistant editor to Jacopo Quadri.
