The last rains…

La pioggia di questi giorni cancella le nostre tracce dalla montagna. Anche il ricordo si annebbia: ci siamo davvero stati su per i monti a fare il nostro cortometraggio?

Sicuro, ci sono 12 ore di girato che da oggi Edoardo Ponti comincia a montare a Los Angeles. Buon lavoro Edoardo, aspettiamo il tuo film per ritrovarci insieme.
 
The last rains wiped out the traces of our stay in the mountains. Even the memory is fading away: have we ever been up on the mountains to shoot our short movie?
Sure we were, there are 12 hours of shooting that since today Edoardo Ponti starts editing in Los Angeles. Good job Edoardo, we wait for your movie to meet again.

Few words in Italian…by Erri De Luca

Few words in Italian…by Erri De Luca

Proverbio napoletano (tradotto in italiano): pure un calcio nel sedere e’ un passo avanti.

Abbiamo finito di girare le ultime scene con un calcio nel sedere da parte del tempo. Ci ha lasciato la giusta finestra, su misura, per le riprese all’aperto. L’ultimo giorno, martedi’ 10 luglio, scaccia a tuoni e fulmini dalla parete la nostra cordata di quattro, Diego, Manfred, Mara, Erri, impegnata nelle inquadrature acrobatiche. Scendiamo veloci sotto il temporale, ma abbiamo comunque scippato le inquadrature necessarie. La montagna ci ha lasciato fare e noi la ringraziamo inzuppati fradici davanti a una tazza di cioccolata calda.

Garofalo: The Italian Pasta in Woody’s and Edoardo’s new movies…

Garofalo doesn’t only make the best pasta in the world, but they are turning out to be the best partners to cinema as well! The company is one of the producers of “Il turno di notte lo fanno le stelle”, directed by Edoardo Ponti, which will shoot in July in the Dolomites: thanks to them we are making an amazing film and will feed our cast and crew as kings!

And now…. a movie! Stars Do The Night-Shift

And now…. a movie! Stars Do The Night-Shift

Erri De Luca will be at the 60th edition of the Trento Film Festival on April 26th 2012 along with Adriano Giannini to present their short film, “Il Turno di notte lo fanno le stelle” (Stars Do The Night-Shift), based on one of De Luca’s recently published short stories.

It is a touching story about friendship between a man and a woman, their love for the mountains and yearning for a new life. It’s about the promise that a lonely man and a married woman make to each other while lying in a hospital ward after critical heart surgeries: one day they will climb the walls of the Vajolet Towers in the Dolomites to celebrate their recoveries and a new chance to life granted through medical procedures.

Erri De Luca has described “Stars Do the Night-Shift”, published as an e-Book by Feltrinelli just a few months ago, “a story/screenplay where each heartbeat has a never heard before sound.” The film will be directed by Adriano Giannini and acted by, among others, the legendary Nastassja Kinski (Paris, Texas).

The movie will begin principal photography  in July 2012, in the Dolomites mountains, Trentino. De Luca (whose bio you can read on this website) is not new to film.  He acted as himself in his screenplay  “Al di la’ del vetro” (Beyond the Glass), along with Isa Danieli.

“Stars Do the Night-Shift” is co-produced  by Oh!Pen, Ombla Productions,  Trentino Film Commission and Montura with the collaboration of Trentino Marketing Spa. The film is expected to be released in the Fall 2012.

As De Luca says, quoting his friend Izet Sarajlic, “who did the night shift to prevent the arrest of the heart of the world? We, the poets.”  Humanity and the importance of organ donation are at the “heart” of this movie.

Here we are, with Erri and Adriano: lots of work, but how wonderful it is! Ciao from Silvia and Paola.
