«Capri Revolution invites us to reflect on the relationship between man and nature” – underlines Gianluca Seguso, Seguso Vetri d’Arte President and CEO, together with the President of the Consorzio Venezia e il suo Lido, Michela Cafarchia.
The Giury, chaired by Luca Zambelli, awarded the movie for: “the evocative power of the images, which stimulate in the public an intimate and profound meditation on the relationship between man and nature, embodied in the tormented psychology of the female character, free and primordial as the island where she lives. The landscape is not a setting, but a living protagonist and interpreter of the epoch-making change taking place. The film investigates the concept of individual responsibility towards the rights of nature, knowledge as a necessary tool, an urgent duty for the preservation of an authentic human life on earth”.
