Visible City is a project of participated video, conceived by the association Maremetraggio and financed by Siae Sillumina, shot within three peripheral areas of the city of Trieste which provide for three different workshops run by artists under 35 (Filippo Gobbato, Margherita Panizon, Laura Samani) and aimed at young people living in conditions of social marginality within the same neighborhoods.

The authors will be present in the hall.

Everything takes place in Prague on the night of 6 August 1995, fifty years after the launch of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Award-winning in numerous international festivals, Buttoners has become a cult film for the Czech public, winning also as Best Czech Film of 1998.
