“For the ability to stage the sense of revenge against the denial of a right, for the originality of the writing, the hints of irony and the link with the territory.”, this is the motivation that led “What is mine” (Quello che è mio) by Gianni Cesaraccio to win two awards at the 13. Figari International Film Fest, in Sardinia, Italy: Best Regional Short Film and Popular Jury Award.
13. Figari International Film Fest
Figari Film Fest is one of the most important Italian short film festival and market. Born in 2011 Figari Film Fest is a Festival dedicated to young and independent cinema, that takes place in the splendid setting of Golfo Aranci, in Sardinia.
Since its first edition, the festival has wanted to create spaces for discussion and comparison, also with the aim of bringing the public closer to cinematographic forms not valued by the normal distribution circuits.
“What is Mine” is a small film about what we leave of ourselves to the world. Four terminally ill men travel through a rural landscape scorched by the summer sun, fully armed, pulling off one heist after another. They are ex-soldiers who became sick on duty. They will need to overcome their limits and fears in order to bring some dignity to their final days and give meaning to the legacy they leave to the world.
