Spaceships and other crazy contraptions.
The silent run of the space vehicle “Valley Forge” travels over Silent Running, the winning film directed by Douglas Trumbull, who was awarded the Academy Award for the special effects in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Incredible optical tricks and amazing scenic designs support a current theme concerning the relation between man (the protagonist, a botanist), nature (forests that need to be saved), contraptions (the robots) and himself.
The devilish retrospective exhibition Il diavolo e i suoi accoliti: maghi e stregoni starts with Méliès (The Merry Frolics of Satan).
Jury: Luigi Chiarini, John Brunner, Gordon Hitchens, Ado Kyrou, Kurt Steiner
