Screening of Atlantide by Yuri Ancarani and public talk

As part of its programme of Masterclasses, talks and screenings with the artist and director Yuri Ancarani, inspired by his latest work Atlantide, Palazzo Grassi hosts two new screenings of the film : on Thursday 22 September at 5 pm and on Thursday 29 September at 6 pm.

On Thursday 22 September, the screening is followed by a public talk dedicated to teenage years, uneasiness and suffering typical of youth, with the participation of Yuri Ancarani, psychologists and psychotherapists specialised in this area.

Atlantide (2021, 104')
Shot in Venice without a script, the film follows the story of Daniele, a young man who lives in Sant’Erasmo, an island in the lagoon. He lives by expedients, marginalised by his peers, who share an intense life of leisure, which is expressed in the religion of the small motorboats: a cult centered on the development of increasingly powerful engines, which transform small lagoon motorboats into dangerous racing ones. The degradation that affects the relationships, the environment and the practices of a generation adrift is observed through the eyes of the timeless landscape of Venice. The point of no return is a wacky, leftover male initiation story, violent and doomed to failure, which explodes, dragging the ghost town on a psychedelic shipwreck trip.

Film screened in the original language (Italian).
