21 Gen “24 in 2020” by Camille DeBiase
It rarely happens to see films like “24 in 2020”. We are in fact faced with a brilliant example of personality and originality, two qualities sufficient to make a work unique of its kind. In particular, the credit goes to Camille DeBiase, the director of this splendid cinematographic experiment. In this film, “cinema” is a very vast word, which includes and exploits all the sensory stimuli of a work that can be defined as “three-dimensional”.
The merit goes in particular to the work of sound design and to the screenplay, able to convey not the images, but the “meaning” of the images, creating an unprecedented relationship between what is shown and what is perceived. In fact, the short narrates the day of a fetus, of a child about to be born, but already able, with sagacity and irony, to interpret the situations experienced by her mother in her daily life! The protagonist’s vision returns to coincide with that of the spectator, both engaged in an effort to complete the external impulse with their own creativity and judgment. A wonderfully complex film, therefore, built with a clever simplicity, which makes you appreciate first of all the splendidly human and hilarious side.
