Two authors of research and video art cinema, Virginia Eleuteri Serpieri and Gianluca Abbate, make a film for the Festa di Roma of New Year 2019, inspired by the imagination of the Moon, in the year of the fiftieth anniversary of the first landing on our satellite.
The materials used, thanks to the collaboration with Istituto Luce – Cinecittà and Raiteche, will allow to rework images of the historical Archivio Luce and suggestions from the famous “lunar walk” broadcast live by RAI on the occasion of the first moon landing, using digital animation techniques and CGI (Computer Generated Image).
The video is projected on a suggestive dome installation to bring the magic of cinema at 360 degrees in the places of the Festa di Roma on New Year’s Eve.
