Special Youth Jury Award @ Visions du Réel

La Ricerca has been awarded with the Special Youth Jury Award at Visions du Réel festival.


A jury composed of students aged between 15 and 22 awarded La Ricerca the Special Youth Jury Award in the medium-length international film competition at Visions du Réel festival.

This is the motivation of the jury, which awarded the CHF 4000 prize offered by École Moser to the film about Luigi Lineri directed by Giuseppe Petruzzellis and produced by Aplysia, EiE Film, Vessel, Lisa Fierro and distributed by Impronta Films:

We want to reward a film that has transported us, interested us and surprised us. We were touched by the passion of the protagonist whom the director was able to observe in a skilful and tender way, pushing us to educate our view of the world.
Things that we thought were simple become then fabulous.
It takes time to observe the world. The parallel created by the question of progress and our rhythm of life promotes this calm and appeasement.
The music and the sounds placed at the opportune moments gives substance to the images and respect its silences.
A project that will carry us and that we want to share with our generation.
For these reasons, we award the prize for best medium-length film to
La Ricerca by Giuseppe Petruzzellis.
