SCRATCH : "IMAGES DÉTOURNÉES : 5 ITALIAN FOUND FOOTAGE FILMS FROM THE 60S"

A program organized in collaboration with the Cineteca Nazionale (Rome), the Archivio del Cinema d’Impresa (Ivrea), the Associazione Culturale Alberto Grifi and presented by Annamaria Licciardello (Cineteca Nazionale).

Found-footage films, which use and reassemble preexisting images to create an entirely new work, is a genre that Italian experimental cinema explored with much originality during its golden age of the 60s. These “found” materials come from extremely diverse sources, be it an American movie in Cinemascope, pornographic films, footage from television or home movies. Yet it is the various approaches that these images are subjected to that renders these little known films, both within and outside of Italy, so original.

While a critical gaze is predominant, even if most of these films are characterized by a dadaistic sense of irony, an analytical approach to the materials is nonetheless present – often to bring out their carnal side – all from within a cultural horizon which denies any possible fascination with the object at hand. This selection of films aims to demonstrate these various approaches by proposing five films which are all, in their own respect, exemplary.
