“The design of nature is music. If you listen to the trees, you will hear a song ”(Diana Beresford-Kroeger). It is on this premise that acclaimed director Kevin McMahon (Waterlife) travels to the heart of the boreal forest in his new documentary to explore the chorus of life in Canada's iconic wilderness. Borealis offers an immersive portrait of the forest from the perspective of the plants and animals that inhabit it. Natural threats such as insects, droughts and fires have joined the extractive industries and logging to alter their delicate balance. In a rapidly warming climate, many of the survival strategies no longer work, and massive change is underway. With a heartfelt appeal to the voices of scientists, indigenous and environmentalists, McMahon makes clear the need for a greater understanding of the natural world. But in the end it is the voice of the forest that resists.

Paolo Borsellino, in one of the latest public speeches, said: "the fight against the mafia must first of all to be a cultural movement that gets everyone used to feeling the beauty of the fresh scent of freedom that opposes the stench of moral compromise, indifference, contiguity and therefore complicity ". For the mafia, art is an illegal trade in works worth billions of euros, the third most profitable market for international organized crime after drugs and international fraud. With art, dirty money is recycled. Instead, for civil society and for all those who share the fight against the mafia, art is beauty and freedom. And this is the story we follow in Arte vs Mafia. In 2022 we celebrate the anniversaries of 4 murders of four state men engaged in the battle for legality in Sicily, killed by the mafia: Giovanni Falcone (23 May 1992), Paolo Borsellino (19 July 1992), Carlo Alberto Dalla Chiesa (3 September 1992) 1982), Pio La Torre (April 30, 1982). We remember them with a special that filters memory through art and beauty, as Borsellino said.

The world of electronic music has been constantly evolving since its inception at the beginning of the 20th century. From the limitless possibilities of digital synthesizers to the recent revival of analog recording; from the incredibly perfect tone of auto-tune, to the democratization of music production.

The film maps a new history of electronic music through visionary women whose radical experiments have redefined the boundaries of music.


Documentary film by Michael Moore presented in competition at the 66th international film art exhibition in Venice. The film focuses on the global financial crisis that broke out in 2008 in the United States of America due to mortgages, acting as an indictment against the current US economic system and capitalism itself. The film also deals with the religious component, in relation to which Moore proposes to examine whether capitalism is placed in the Christian and evangelical perspective as a real sin, in order to highlight the contradiction at the base of the capitalist system itself, largely supported by parties strongly linked to religion.
