TS+FF 2018 – Day 6

And we go out with a bang! We start the day off right with a bunch of space gypsies, and then we end up in a toxic forest before hitting the road in search of contemporary physics. Just when we thought we could take a breather – bam: Nazis, bloodshed and butchering of the assorted variety.
TS+FF is still alive!

Lajko, Gypsy in Space [Lajkó – Cigány az űrben]
Everybody knows that the first living creature sent off to space was the canine pioneer Laika. Well, not quite. The first living being in space was actually a Hungarian crop-sprayer (aptly) named Lajkó. A space gipsy at the heart of a hilarious, bizarre, and irresistible Hungarian dark comedy.

5.15PM – Teatro Rossetti
On a remote moon, a teenage girl and her father are searching for some elusive precious stones, but they are not the only ones roaming the moon’s toxic forest in this Canadian sci-fi western that lands, freshly baked, from SXSW’s line-up.

5.30PM – Teatro Miela
Conversazioni atomiche [Atomic Conversations]
A comedy, a road movie and a documentary: mostly, this film is a declaration of love to Italian science, and to all those who have chosen to dedicate their lives to asking questions.

8PM – Teatro Rossetti
Overlord + Awards Ceremony
Only a few hours away from the invasion of Normandy, the countdown to the D-Day has already started. A group of American paratroopers drops into Nazi-occupied France on a mission that is crucial for the success of the historical operation. Strangely enough, however, Nazis are not their main problem: the Americans uncover a secret Nazi lab where terrifying and bizarre experiments are carried out, and where paranormal forces are at work. From the genius mind of J.J. Abrams, the closing movie gives you everything you’ve ever wanted, but never dared to ask: G.I.s, Nazis, undiluted horror, living dead, blood, maimed faces, uniforms, blazing rifles, bullets, and pieces of guts scattered everywhere. Pure joy!
