Where and when
Speakers Alessandro Bavari, Theo Caneschi, Enrico Ghezzi
The new edition of the Sequence Shot Film Festival opens at the Museo Novecento with the meeting entitled Oroborus: the sequence shot and infinity. The film critic and television author Enrico Ghezzi, the digital image artist Alessandro Bavari and the designer Theo Caneschi address the theme of the sequence shot and infinity in their symbolic and philosophical transposition into various expressive and artistic languages.
During the meeting there will be screenings of the short film Arturo by Alessandro Bavari and of the documentary, in absolute preview, Oroborus, made by Enrico Ghezzi, Graziano Staino, Lorenzo Bechi and Roberto Schoepflin.
He is a visionary artist who has been working for years in the illustration, photography and cinema sector. Genetic manipulations and surreal scenarios are just some of the ingredients of the video and photographic works that have allowed Bavari to arouse interest and achieve success even beyond national borders. Among his collaborations we recall, for example, that of the latest Alien: Covenant by Ridley Scott.
He is a draftsman. After attending the International School of Comics he found success in France working on some series including Il papa terribile, written by Alejandro Jodorowsky and published by Delcourt in France and by Panini Comics in Italy.
Graduated in Philosophy from the University of Genoa, in 1974 he was among the founders of the magazine Il Falcone Maltese together with Teo Mora and Marco Giusti. In 1975 he took part in the birth of the first Genoese private radio, Radio Genova International, with a film criticism program. He joined RAI in 1978, winning a competition for programmer and director, and was responsible for the film schedule of Rai 3 from 1987 to 1994. In 1988 he was the inventor of the nightly television container after hours. Things (never) seen and one of the creators, in 1989, of Blob. In 1989 he directed Gelosi e tranquilli, an episode of the film Provisional almost of love. In 1995 he created the 40-hour non-stop television marathon The Magnificent Obsession, to celebrate the centenary of cinema. In 2009, RAI commemorates Blob’s twentieth anniversary with Hello Ghezzy !, a cartoon entirely centered on Enrico Ghezzi, made by Mario Verger. In 2011 he curated the six-part program Zaum – Going to parare for Rai Tre. From 1991 to 1998 he directed the Taormina Film Festival.
