For the fifth year, the contest is aimed at directors passionate about archival images and the theme of this edition is "Family". Through the images on "Nos Archives" directors, film school students, high school students are invited to tell the "Story" from a different point compared to the official one, with a story even invented and with film materials in Nosarchives.com and the Institute's archive.
For this edition, the staff of Gusto Della Memoria has decided to interview directors of all ages, stories and geometries of the 21st century families. What do new intellectuals have to say? How do you tell them? The organizers also interested in film making that could be new homemovies composed within homemovies of the twentieth century. A dialogue between familiar images. Are there really differences in family images? Or every family is an exception?
